Share everything! 54 Mint consistently serves great dishes in a warm and friendly atmosphere. They are very accommodating about bringing extra plates so you can share everything. On our last visit we shared two appetizers, one pasta and one main course (Oxtail!).

Saw a few nice reviews about this place so decided to try. Service is very friendly. Good Italian cuisine. A bit overpriced in my opinion, but a nice place!

Absolutely the best Roman style food I have had outside of Rome (and better than most restaurants in Rome!). Octopus (tender), Gnocci (amazing), Panna Cotta, Sardinian red paired perfectly, and a Smokey Amari to finish. Molto Benne!!

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
