Very good Italian. Original treatment of both quail and pork belly. Excellent wine list and staff. Outdoor seating.

This is not walkable from the city center, but well worth the taxi ride. Everything from the greeting and service to the food and wine was superb. Great ambiance too. Try their antipasto! Reservations essential.

Excellent service added to our special dinner welcoming our son from California for a visit to attend our older son's 50th birthday. We all had a good time on exotic food.

A farm to table concept in the Abruzzese style and tradition. Literally, the best meal I ever had the pleasure to experience.The entire operation is first class and can stand up to the best that even San Francisco has to offer.

A small group of four Of us went for dinner in this fabulous restaurant last evening. The service was great; but the definite star of the show was the food. Each course was perfection on a plate: from the lamb skewers and pasta dishes to the "housewife style" chicken and beignet for dessert, we loved this restaurant. Certainly planning on... More

I've dined here often and the menu changes so you're not ordering the same thing. The burrata and tomato salad appetizer was the best I've had. The pistachio pesto over pasta was amazing. People in my party ordered trout, duck ravioli and handkerchief pasta with lamb. Everyone was thrilled with their meal. For dessert, marscapone gelato on a bluberry torte.... More

We wanted Italian food, looked at some reviews and stumbled upon Le Virtu, not realizing it was very authentic cuisine, and not the cuisine we were quite looking for. We sat outside, for the price of the entrees, the patio and tables are not impressive nor comfortable, no tablecloths, just metal, plus the sound of the servers dropping all of... More

Celebrated our daughter's birthday with a delicious dinner al fresco! Homemade pasta and not the same old desserts. Authentic Abbruzzese cooking.

I've been to Le Virtu' numerous times, and it never ever disappoints. On the contrary, it impresses every time. It deserves repeat visits so that you can sample all the different pasta dishes; this is why it's good to go with friends, so that you can order various primi and share. The secondi (especially the agnello) and the wines are... More

Had dinner at Le Virtu on a late summer early Friday evening. Hostess graciously moved our original table to a less noisy location. Very friendly and knowledgeable waiter took us through the excellent and unique Abbruzze menu. Well worth trying some items you might not have had before. Very nice wine list with some moderately priced but excellent Italian wines.... More
