Haven't been on the hill is many, many years. Gitto's has excellent Italian food with a very good wine list, but the service exceeds most other restaurants. Efficient but not rushed. Very entertaining. Makes you feel right at home.

Have been going here for years (28). Always can count on the best Italian food around. Excellent continental service. Excellent wine list. A bit in the pricey side but, if you are looking for a nice evening..... .....go for it!

The area is well know but I figured it would be like "the hill" in San Fransisco or more galleria type. It seemed quite safe, with only older looking buildings/neighborhood, but I felt much better being armed. The place is really small and all guests...More
