The food is amazing, the service attentive, the atmosphere fun. The slow-roasted pork, the endive and strawberry salad, the tagliatelle, and the brown sugar gelato were all delicious. Good selection of wines. Pricey but worth it.

I stopped into the Tadich Grill with business associate. We all ordered various pasta dishes. These were not standard fare pasta dishes. There was a very interesting variety of pasta, ravioli and dumplings. My lunch was great and everyone else proclaimed their selections delicious. We were in a bit of a rush and even though they were very busy, I... More

I had a lovely dinner with my partner whilst in SF recently at Perbacco. Adriano the Sommelier was extremely knowable with both wines and food and made our evening. Highly recommended

I have walked by this place several times on visits to San Francisco and it is always busy so decided to try it. The service was fabulous. Wine selection interesting. The menu looked great but what I ordered was bland with added salt to try to pump it up. I was very disappointed.

We enjoyed Perbacco so much during our last trip to S.F. that we made another reservation this time around. It did not disappoint. The service was again impeccable - our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The food was delicious. My husband enjoyed his octopus starter, and our entrees (braised short ribs for him and sauteed scallops for me) were outstanding.... More

Are waiter was attentive and very knowledgable made us feel very comfortable. I would say the food is way northern winters comfort food. The pasta are delicious and I think the standouts are any pasta dish with... More

This was a pleasant dining experience, but I've had better. The restaurant itself is very pretty - romantic and trendy. It is large, but doesn't feel that way owing to the layout, which is very nice. We started with the mixed meat platter. It would have been nice if the server explained what was on the plate. There were some... More

Perbacco is large and busy. It's popularity is well deserved. It's diverse menu is much more than Northern Italian. We went twice and did not have a single disappointment. Service was attentive and not pushy.

Great food is essential to a great dining experience. And this is true at Perbacco, where every dish we had was exceptional. Our choices included included the quail Breast with wild mushrooms and potato puree, the Tajarin (Tagliatelle with 5 hour pork and porini mushroom sugo), the Vegetable Ragout, Carne Cruda, burrata, white chocolate-giandula bar, and the Chocolate Sorbetto. But,... More
