This is a very good Italian restaurant within walking distance from the Courtyard on 2nd St. The food is great and the service was excellent. Everything is reasonable priced as well, so it's easy on the pocket.

We went there in a group. The food was good sole service, but the waiter who served us was not only hard to talk to, but he yelled at us for no reason. We left a small tip because we were very upset with the situation, and as we walked to the door the manager followed us to complain that... More

5 of us stopped here after a long day of strategic planning. They were able to do special requests for my allergy/food sensitive friends. A great variety of options as well as gluten free. Even for a Tuesday night, they were crowded so a call ahead for reservations.

I love this neighborhood place! It has been around forever and the food is consistently good! The owner, Guilio, is a true san francisco character, and a major fan of the giants and the 49ers (well, at least when they were in SF!) There are pics of him with famous people all over the walls, creating a nice ambience and... More

What a cozy Restaurant. Pouring down rain outside and so inviting inside. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the company of chatting with the owner Giulio.

We were on a business trip and a group of us had lunch here. Service was excellent and waiter went the extra mile with his sense of humor and great service. The food was excellent my ravioli was delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Arrived to town later than we planned and needed somewhere to eat a late dinner. The hotel recommended several and Umbria was one of them. It's a quaint little Italian eatery in the corner. Nothing fancy, but the menu delivers. The owner is friendly and you can tell that he takes great pride in his place. My husband and son... More

I dropped in on this restaurant in the pouring rain after a day of culture visiting the gardens and museums of San Francisco: Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden De Young, California Academy of Science and SFMOMA! Phew - no wonder I was ravenous! I'd read a good review in the Rough Guide and thought it worth a punt - good... 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.
