I liked the restaurant and the food. I had the duck. Nicely prepared but portions were small. Salad was very good. Others in the party did not care for their food. Desert was very good but pricey. Popular restaurant and we had to wait a little while to get seated.

We had a great meal at Perbacco. The service was very good and the food great. The front bar is bar which tended to get noisy. we sat in the back and the noise level was fine. I would go back again.

When the Fairmont Hotel recommended this place I was a bit unsure of how good it would be. It was a 10. The meal was perfect. Everything about this place was amazing. The service, the food, the wait staff. I cant say enough good things about this place. The octopus was the best I have ever had EVER!. The cooked... More

We had around 50 people in one of their upstairs rooms. The bartender really knew how to make a martini. We had a choice of three entrees. I chose the braised short ribs with polenta. Awesome.

I hosted a dinner banquet for about 40 people at Perbacco, and let me just say that they did a wonderful job with all the food, from the appetizers to the dessert. The staff was exceptional and I could not have asked for a better experience. All members of my organization were extremely pleased with the entire experience. I highly... More

Had a reunion dinner there. The food is high end-interesting and complex. Shout out to bartender Lisa for great bartending skills, including giving me some good advice.

Located in the financial district, this place delivers sophisticated Italian cuisine. Our party of three had no complaints about the food or service. Our waiter, although a little on the formal side, was attentive and efficient. Our main plates were the gnocchi, duck and halibut, respectively. All were well prepared and delicious. The only negative was the ambiance. We were... More

I came here on the recommendation of the hotel concierge and came away favorably impressed. The food was excellent. The service was efficient, though not perfect (from my perspective and personal bias) because the person waiting on me was not warm or friendly. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes Italian food.

It's been four years, but we made it back, and so glad we did. Came here before a show at the Ahmanson on a Friday night. Booked it because I recall service to be fast and if traffic was bad getting there, would allow us to have a nice dinner but at our pace - slow or fast. Of course,... More

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.
