Had lunch here as we arrived early to check in at Hotel Abri. The food was tasty and the staff very attentive and friendly. We liked so much we came back for dinner the next evening which didn't disappoint. The service and food was consistent for the dinner service as well. Will come back anytime.

Despite pretty decent happy hour and good quality food, the service here is absolutely appalling. Staff surly and unhelpful at best, at worst physically looking at myself and my group with disdain. Have been here many times in the past but will not be coming back, trust me there are far nicer bars/restaurants in this area, don't bother with this... More

Having lived in Italy I am really surprised by reviews here. The staff is excellent, this is one thing I will say. The food is overpriced for the quality. My Frutti di Mare had ONE mussel in it. A glass of wine (outside Happy Hour I guess) is 13 dollars, in general I think they have a "trendy local" crowd... More

Came in Saturday about 7. Should have called for reservation but only waited about 15 minutes. My wife had spaghetti and I had the pork chop. Both were excellent. Caesar salad was great too. Creme brûlée and strawberry tart would be hard to beat. Great Dinner for a good price and just across the street from the Parc 55 hotel.

Service and food were both excellent. Conveniently located to the Parc 55 Hilton. If you want the check split, you will need to remind the staff.

Visited on my own for an early dinner on Friday evening. Ordered the Bruchetta and salmon and glass of Proseco. My server told me while it was happy hour it didn't apply in the restaurant! The bruchetta arrived and was huge. However size isn't everything. The tomatoes were a warm mush covered in a very artificial tasting balsamic. The goats... More

My wife and I decided to come here last-minute after arriving in San Francisco. We were in the mood for Italian and this place was close by our hotel. Our service was excellent and the food was good, but I don't feel the food justified the price. I realize everything in SF is expensive, but even so the entrees were... More

Quite a delicious meal. Angel our waiter was attentive but definitely not overbearing. Portions are huge! My husband and I split s salad and main course and still couldn't finish. Started with gem salad. They split it for us and I was sure a mistake was made. Both were so large: delicious with tasty light salad dressing. The vegetarian lasagne... More
