Was in San Francisco for work and stopped in on a whim for dinner since it was located between my hotel and shopping.

I was seated immediately (had made a reservation for 6:30, but that wasn't necessary). Great atmosphere and ambiance. It was a little loud, but not to the extent of being bothersome. Being a single dinner, I was seated near the kitchen/cooking area. Normally I read the news on my phone during dinner, but I found myself spending more time watching the chef's prepare the food. Quite entertaining.

My server (Kirk) was great. Attentive. Quick on his feet. Friendly.

Had the linguine and clams which I found to be very flavorful and a very nice portion... I did not walk away hungry at all.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge and what a GREAT recommendation it was! The food was perfect...a little pricey, but worth the quality....Service was also very good...excellent attention to detail! Menu is ala carte and it was $10 for a top shelf drink! Definitely worth the splurge!

Right across Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel, this place is a fantastic option for breakfast. Coffee is terrific and food is good. But what really makes Puccini & Pinetti a great restaurant is the service. I went 4 days in a row, and got served by different waiters/waitresses. Every one of them was very nice and polite. Price is reasonable and the atmosphere is comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Kids enjoyed making their own pizzas. The capellni and risotto were delicious, as was the pasta with fennel sausage. Service was great! Water was refilled often. This was our first meal in San Francisco since arriving and it was delicious!

It is a pleasure to know we were the first place you visited in San Francisco. Bring the kiddies by anytime, we'd love to see them make their own pizza again!

We ate here three times in four days with different people. It was never too crowded and service was great. Kept going back for the complimentary bread with incredibly flavorful dipping sauce. Best of all was the caprese martini, an unusual idea but it really worked, actually tasted more like a bloody mary. One of our visits included an 8 year old who loved the "make it yourself" pizza.
