We ducked into this restaurant for dessert and to warm up. The staff was super nice and attentive. We had creme brûlée which my son loved and I had a profiterole which was very good and the hot chocolate was real, no powdered stuff here....More

This was my favourite meal while in San Fran. I had quite a basic pasta dish but the quality of the fresh ingredients made it the best that I had. Waiters were attentive. Definitely a must visit if you like Italian food.

We had fantastic food, both tasty and Italian authentic. The four of us tried several dishes, first and main, and all of them were excellent. The service was also effective and geared towards pleasing the customers. Highly recommended!

We’ve never had calamari grotto that was so perfectly cooked, crispy and not greasy. We followed with the pappardelle in short rib sauce and the gnocchi bolognese. This is simple, great, and authentic Italian food.

We had a great meal and night at Piazza Pellegrini. Service was good despite busy restaurant on Valentines Day. Special chicken involtini was the best. Highly recommended as it was also a quick walk from Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel.

Having passed this storefront restaurant the previous evening, I took note of the warm, exotic aromas that identified this location as a “must” to visit. The building is approachable and polite in its visage. It is well decorated and professionally staffed... clean and well tended....More

On a beautiful sunny San Francisco day, this place was the perfect venue to have a glass of wine and enjoy an appetizer on the front patio. The antipasta was delicious and massive- a great dish to share!

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
