Here alone and wanted somewhere upscale; contemporary; good people watching where I could eat at the bar. My good friend recommended here and it could not have been better! The wild mushroom gnocchi with sugar snap peas was great. I love brussel sprouts which were perfect. I had my 'standard' French 75' which was just right, then a few (:))... More

On Monday of last week my girlfriend and I went to this restaurant to meet my brother in law and a few of his coworkers. The restaurant was recommended by a business associate of my brother in law. We arrived early so we had a quick drink at the bar to wait for the rest of our party. The bartender... More

The food here was delicious. I had the Tajarin -- Tagliatelle with 5-hour pork and porcini sugo. Tables are not too close upstairs so it was possible to have a conversation even though the place was packed. Friendly and efficient service Good wine list.

Living in San Francisco, we've eaten at several outstanding Italian restaurants and Perbacco isn't one of them. The Fritto Misto appetizer, which is a surprisingly small portion, was not particularly hot or crisp and the marinated vegetables should have been better described as blanched-vegetables-with-vinaigrette. The duck breast entree was generous but tough. The scallops were warm and well-seasoned. The pasta... More

Came here with two friends and had a fantastic, sort of decadent meal - started with a nice charcuterie plate, had a fantastic fresh homemade pasta meal....all with nice mixed drinks coming at regular intervals. We were well taken care of, ate well, laughed - had a great time. Recommended!

We found this restaurant quite by chance. Actually Google Maps found it when I searched for nearby Italian restaurants. We sat in a booth in the bar area as it was quieter than the main dining room which was quite lively. I started out with the octopus appetizer. It was the best I've had, even better than Babbo's (sorry Mario!).... More

We made reservations at this place based on good reviews from the show "Check Please Bay Area." We arrived few minutes before our time and were promptly seated. However, our seating on the upper floor was rather dark with only average and somewhat gloomy ambience. Our waitress was quite knowledgeable and friendly and took care of our vegetarian needs by...

Our son picked this place to meet for dinner largely because of its location close to his office. We split a couple of appetizers (Roots & Shoots made for a delightful mix of sweet & tangy flavors across a variety of root vegetables; and the Burrata Cheese was terrific) and then moved on to appetizers of our own for the...
