Always great food and friendly service. The salads are such a treat! A nice lunch place that we visit every time we are in San Francisco!

My First bad dining experience I've had after 1 week of eating out in SF. We went as a large group of 13 and sat outside. The heater wasn't working so it was pretty cold. The waiter ( the manager) was extremely rude and point at each of us when we were ordering. The food came out in drabs, some... More

Really bad service for a table of 14 people. Manager of the restaurant quite rude at the order and only issues at the payment. Tips have been added without our agreement and despite poor service. Absolutely not recommend the place. The food was not good neither.

Went to Brindisi on the basis of the reviews which were generally very positive, however, the food on this evening can only be described as poor. If we had not been invited guests, my wife and I would have returned both of our meals. I had a pasta dish in which the pasta was cooked perfectly but the sauce was... More

Had dinner with friends here. 2 of us order the sole. Both were over cooked. Waiter didn't write anything down and brought the wrong dinner to one of us. We were finished eating by time his meal came. Salads were good and large enough to share. Wine list is way way way overpriced. Bread and dip was good. No need... More

First time back home in 30 odd years and went out for Italian with my fellow work family members. This place was nuzzled in a corner with an outside eating alley. Yet, very expensive for a plate of Lobster Ravioli $22 and received a plate of 5, it was very tasty. Followed up by a $12 glass of Bellini Martini... More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend and we're glad we did. The alley of its location is lined on one side with boutique restaurants of varying fare. This one is on the far end from Bush Street. The hostess was most personable, the busboys most attentive and our waiter was most efficient. The food of course was flavorful... More

I took a group to lunch during the holiday season. They were preparing for a large group but still paid close attention to us. All four of us ordered pasta dishes. All were delicious. Mine was full of clams, shrimp and calamari. The sauce was perfectly seasoned, just enough spice to make me happy. I've eaten here many times, it's... More

It had been a while since we had come to San Francisco other than to run the San Francisco Marathon, and everytime we came to Brindisi we always a light pasta dish to fuel us for the following day's 26.2 miles.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
