My husband and I went there for our 10th wedding anniversary. All of the good we ordered was delicious! Make sure to order the short ribs!!! The server was very attentive and also brought us out a complimentary desert at the end for our anniversary. The only complaint I have is that it's super loud!!!! If it was any other... More

We went with our family including a 10 and 13 year old. The service was excellent. We enjoyed our meal and the kids had great pasta. I really enjoyed the duck breast.

We had a team dinner in the Barbaresco room. It was set up beautifully with a private bar and some light appetizers as folks arrived. Service was attentive and friendly. We established a fixed menu and some folks wanted to combine the dinners and they were quite accommodating! We started with salad with sliced peaches and gnocchi in a marinara... More

Three of us had dinner at Perbacco last week and all of us raved about our food choices. Between us we had a pork chop, and two of the pasta dishes. All were absolutely delicious. The sommelier suggested a red wine that was moderately priced (for San Francisco) and very good. The service was excellent on all levels, from the... More

I have no complaints at all. Had the seared scallops, they were cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was nice, our waiter was attentive. I would return.

Everything from the service, food and dessert (yes receives its own category at this restaurant) was fantastic. My fiance and I were celebrating my birthday here.They even had a little birthday card for me at the table. Food: We shared three "small" portions of different pastas. the gnocchi (foie gras!), a ravioli and the braised beef pappardelle. Each was equally... More

A good restaurant located on California avenue. the place is quite big, it has an upstairs dining area. The food is excellent, I'd be tempted to say inspired by american tradition food, with a touch of European finish. We ordered some great starters for the table (the steak tartare was delicious), followed by mains (fish, meat, pasta), all was very... More

We visited Perbacco twice, and each time we very much enjoyed the place. The food, although straightforward and unpretentious, is excellently and sophisticatedly prepared. The service, both times, was highly professional--that is, kind, alert, responsive and friendly. It's a very nice downtown place, and open on Saturday nights too.

Thank keithofrpi

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.
