“good fun and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2006

My wife and I ate at Brindisi last week and enjoyed the whole experience. This place is part of a group of establishments that have taken over an alley near Union Square. The outdoor seating -- which we enjoyed on a warm night -- spills over from one restaurant to the next so there are literally hundreds of diners in this alley. You may be sitting right on top of each other but it's fun -- and very much a Mediterranean piazza atmosphere. Our meal at Brindisi was delicious and ceretainly not too expensive for SF or any big city. We shared two appetizers -- a mixed salad and a skewer of grilled prawns. The prawns were perfectly grlled and seasoned and served inside their shells with an aoili of some kmind. My wife had the cioppino for a main course -- the San Franciscan fish soup, served with huge chunks of dungeness crab, mussels, clams and more prawns. I ordered the snapper in white wine and green olives with a crab risotto. Both main courses were excellent. Each cost about $20. With all this food, martinis and wine, the bill was about $85. Not too bad. Go.
