I took my SF based team here for after work drinks. It has a great outdoor area on Embarcadero with table service. Highly recommended for such an event.

Americano is a slick young vibe that makes for good spectator sport and the foods not bad either. The menu is not extensive, in fact its quiet precise. Ranging between a few salads, pizzas, pastas and some mains, choices are limited. Portions are just large enough to share (salads, pizzas). Most of what is served is organic, local and seems... More

an absolute must when you are staying at the hotel or passing by in the area. Food is absolutely great in this place. Staff is super nice. Can only recommend hopping in for a glass of Napa whine and some Pizza/Pasta/Burger.

Mar 14-15, 2014 We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next morning. We had a choice of either Perry's or Americano Restaurant for breakfast. We definitely made a right choice, though Perry's on another visit would be fine. It has the look and the service. On one day I had the short ribs with 2 poached eggs, and... More

Great location. Most underrated for dinner because their bar is so popular. But the food is very good. Pasta's and pizzas are great.

And good presentation too. Except I found the restaurant staff little stressed out, they should have pleasant smiles on their faces at least.
