“Fino's - San Francisco - after a day of wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Small restaurant - definitely recommend reservations. The food here was very reasonably priced and absolutely excellent. The menu and wine list are extensive. I always judge an Italian restaurant based on its salad and red sauce. Both - superb.

“Excellent food, let down by the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Really lovely food- carpaccio followed by sea food pasta- delicious. The service however lacked any of the nth American efficiency or pleasantries, a real shame. Briefly-wrong drinks order, had to ask for pepper, plates taken whilst other pepole at the table were still eating, the bill thrust upon at the end without asking. Really fantastic food- good luck with your host, fingers crossed!

“wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

This place was the best we had in San Fran. the pasta w/sausage I had was just incredible , my wife had gnocchi in cream sauce we also had this french fry thing molded around cheese and garlic. OMG, reservations required, but we saw it on yelp. and took a chance. they had a cancellation so we lucked out. so if you go, call ahead, its worth the effort.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth trying. We loved the smaller feel. Tried the fettuccine and ravioli and both were good. Good wines as well and really good tiramisu. They just ran out of the lava cake, but other than that everything was good.

“Food Amore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Shame on anyone that gives this place a poor review. It's some of the best Italian in town. It was our last night visiting and of course we didn't have a reservation, but were able to sit at the bar. I would definitely recommend a reservation, because the bar is small and the bartender is always slammed. She still managed to take great care of us and everything we ordered was mouth watering. It can get a little pricey with drinks and dessert, but you get what you pay for, so cough up the bucks. You won't be dissappointed.
