Great food and great service! Worth a visit if only to see James Bond and the excellent bar man - you'll know what I mean when you go!

This is a small, lovely restaurant in a small hotel a few blocks from Union Square. We ate dinner there twice during our 5 day stay in SF. The servers are kind, friendly and helpful. We had three in our party, and we all really enjoyed our food. Delish salads, pasta dishes and pizza. The tiramisu is best ever--don't miss it! Make reservations before you go.

Have just returned tonight from a memorable meal at Fino - one of the better meals I've had in a long, long time. Small room just off the lobby of the Andrews Hotel on Post St. about 20 tables, and all but the one we reserved occupied - reservations a must, as word seems to be getting out - we managed to get reservations about 2 hours ahead, but only because another couple had cancelled. Gracious and friendly service - bread at the table within seconds and a delicious basil, garlic, balsamic and olive oil dip to accompany. We had the tortellini carbonera, the portions generous but not overwhelming. The flavours were properly balanced, lots of crispy pancetta and caramelized onion, hand-formed tortellini was cooked just properly and the sauce was one of the most flavourful I've had.

Highly recommended, reasonably priced, well deserved praise for this restaurant.

We were actually walking to a different restaurant when we stopped to study the menu posted outside Fino, and a group of diners who were coming out persuaded us that we couldn't do any better than Fino. We were glad we took their advice. It's very small and unpretentious; what appeared to be a lot of locals at the bar. Busy and noisy, but very good food, and a reasonably priced bottle of wine. If you're staying at a hotel in the Union Square area, it is just a few blocks walk.

So glad we took the time to find this place. Although not far from Union Square, it is a little bit off the beaten path and if you blink, you might miss it. Look for The Andrews Hotel. Everything was just as it should be. Fine food; attentive and extremely pleasant staff. The caesar salad dressing seemed to have been made from scratch, as were the croutons! Love it! Love it! Love it! Three of us had excellent pasta dishes. The only misstep was the Tiramisu. The chocolate shavings on top were too bitter for my tastes, but it didn't mean I couldn't eat it. I did! We'll go back again!
