Absolutely fantastic! In South San Francisco for a conference and found this gem! Obviously a local favorite; however, as a weary traveler in need of sustenance this was the find of the century! Three in our party, we each had something different and raved about...More

Took our extended family to dinner on 9/24/18. Seemed perfect as our guests had a 9:00 pm flight at SFO. Their car was filled with their luggage, making a tempting target for a break-in. Luckily, Bertolucci’s has a private parking lot. Unluckily, it was full....More

Cute, very quaint place that's been around for almost a century. Crowded. Good Italian food but not phenomenal. Thought that Buon Gusto around the corner was better. Good service. Decent wine list. About $50pp before tip but with liquor. Would go back.

Very close to airport hotels so a short Uber/Lyft ride for dinner if staying near the airport. House salad was very good with the vineagrette dressing. Had the Veal and it was decent but a little overcooked (tough).

Returned again. Not much change since last visit. Much different than prior owners. Easy parking. Food & service average but more expensive since new owners took over.
