This is an excellent, old school restaurant (but not as old school as Taddich Grill next door). Rock solid food. Very attentive service. A bit pricey, but considering the location and menu, not out of line. Great for a special meal.

We ate at Perbacco on October 7th and it was fantastic. This was my second time at the restaurant and the experience keeps getting better. The food, wine and service in Perbacco are all excellent. There is not much more I can say. This is my favourite restaurant in San Francisco.

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!
