“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

While staying in the Financial District we were lucky enough to stumble upon Pazzia Caffe for dinner. The atmosphere was cozy with a nice wine list, very friendly service and great Italian food. My husband and I split a salad, pizza and the lasagna. They were nice enough to individually plate the pasta and salad. Lasagna was creamy and noodles al dente. Perfect! I highly recommend this place. Price was right too!

“Small but mighty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant in the SOMO district is a hidden treasure. A small one-room restaurant that delivers fabulous food and great service. Don't be out off by the locale on a busy street. This is the best food ad a value too. Fun wine list, great owner.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Enjoyed a lovely meal here on our final night in SF. Great food and nice atmosphere. Slightly out of the city centre but only 12 dollars in a cab from union sq. Our server was Italian and chatty, and on the whole he was very good except for the fact that I had to ask for the bill 3 times before it arrived! The food was delicious and I'd recommend.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

NOt rar from Moscone lies a lovely Florentine restaurant. I go there every year when in town for a conference and they never disappoint.. The Gnocchi melts in your mouth. I don't think I have everhad a disappointing bite here. Massimo, the owner is a character and always around for a laugh ( or a shot of Limoncello) . While they often are late seating folks (at least later than reservation time) the stmosphere and service more than make up for the wait.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Really enjoyed this place. Had to wait about half an hour to be seated but it was worth it. Pleasant staff, nice atmosphere (a little bit crowdy and load but there was a charm), delicious food, both meat and pasta, great wine. Highly recommend.
