“Just what you'd want in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Eating in a neighborhood...walk there or take the cable car...this is the "pedestrian" lifestyle many of us like when traveling or living in cozy neighborhood.

The owner is so accommodating...he set up a table for us on the outside as it was such a balmy evening. The menu has many choices, all so delicious. I have asked for risotto made with different ingredients than on the menu...no problem for them...happy to do it. My husband loved his halibut...perfectly cooked, fresh and just the right amount of food.

Service was not only friendly but fun, and prompt. Go and enjoy an evening out on Hyde Street in Russion Hill district.

“Excellent service, excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We hadn't read the reviews on tripadvisor, we just walked by when we saw a nice restaurant called Frascati. The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice, service is very good. But the food is even better!

“Lovely evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Very lovely little location in Russian Hill. Exactly what we wanted from a San Francisco dinner experience -- intimate setting, delicious food, good service. We chose this off Trip Advisor recommendations, and our friends who live in San Fran were impressed that we found such a gem. Probably not the best for a large group, but for a date, small dinner with another couple, etc., it's pretty much perfect. By the way, loved the butternut squash soup.

“My new favorite neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My main course of pan seared grouper on a bed of lentils with arugula, and cherry tomatoes was just outstanding! The chive beurre blanc in the recipe gave the dish a hint of tang. My husband ordered the Italian sausage risotto, and despite an extended conversation with the server before ordering, the dish initially had almost no sausage. But the server and the kitchen quickly added more and saved the day. My husband did love his Burrata caprese appetizer and my yellow pepper soup was very good. We each enjoyed one half of a blueberry peach cobbler. The evening's special pour of a glass of burgundy was great and the coffee at the end was also very good. All the staff members are warm and genuinely friendly without being overbearing.

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Little corner restaurant on Nob Hill, very nice! Found this restaurant walking around San Francisco and decided to try it after having been very disappointed the night before at Tarantino's.
We booked a table (small restaurant so book!) and were greeted by a charming man (owner?).

Menu was limited but food was indeed very good as was the ambience throughout the evening.
