This is my neighborhood restaurant and close to an office where we held an offsite mtg with colleagues flying in. Casual abs homey. They liked it.

The best minestrone I've ever eaten. A beef lasagne that's a cross between the style I had in Rome and the typical American style - taking the best of both and crafting it to perfection! Probably hand-crafted to order, too. No fast food here. Luka (Luca? Luccha?) is wonderfully friendly and shows he enjoys what he does, which is feeding... More

We stopped here on way from Moscone to ATT Ballpark. It looked good so we stopped in with no reservation and they were able to accommodate a table for three easily.. It was a delightful find and we loved the experience. The bread and tapenade is great. The burrata cheese melts in your mouth - divine. The roasted veggie bruschetta... More

Crazy expansive menu- pretty much any Italian specialty is there. Large wine selection too. Food was a bit salty but solid. Can't fault the pasta or seafood options. Atmosphere is nice for a date or hanging out with friends. Staff are very warm and attentive. This is the type of place I could make into a regular neighborhood dining spot.

Authentic and well-thought out menu. You cannot go wrong here! Though it is only on the lunch menu and I did not realize that I had been planning on having the sole. Was accommodated with a blink of an eye!

We found this place after a recommendation from our hotel staff. My colleague had the Risotto Alla Monferrina (19) and I had the Caesar salad (11) and the Ravioli con Pomodoro (19). Everything was very good - the only negative was the salad was a little overpriced - $7-8 would be more appropriate for this type of restaurant. Overall, I'd... More

While visiting family in San Francisco we met here one night for dinner. We were not disappointed. The food, atmosphere, & service were all great. As far as the food & ambiance, it was very much like a restaurant you will find in Italy. Absolutely delicious food. Will definitely be back.

I had the Filet Minion and it was pretty good and very well cooked. The red wine was delicately balanced with the red meat, and my colleague had the lamb ragu which she highly recommended l. Overall a good dinning experience with good service.

We made reservations at this restaurant, because of the great reviews. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere was very much like a traditional Italian restaurant in Italy, unassuming, understated and yet, very welcoming and classy. The wait staff is Italian and very attentive. The food was delicious and authentic. Come here for a romantic dinner and take in everything else.... More

Decided to check out this relatively new restaurant close to my house with some friends. Ordered a couple of pasta dishes to share: lamb ragu and Orecchiette. Pasta was a bit over cooked for my taste but was descent. I ordered the rolled veal and my friend the rabbit stew for main. The veal was a bit tough and seemed... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
