This restaurant was recommended to us by the host at our vacation rental when we visited San Francisco in June 2012. We went to E'Angelo's for dinner our first night in the city, and found the food, wine, and service to be outstanding. Would definitely return there.

The great thing about fresh ingredients that are simply prepared is that in general, they produce a dish that really shines because of its inherent freshness and simplicity. This is the case with E'Angelo.

We were in the Marina District and were hungry but didn't feel like going somewhere to preen with the rest of the madding crowd. Walking down Chestnut, we happened upon E'Angelo. There were a couple of tables available outside and it was a gorgeous, sunny day so we plopped down and were handed menus within 30 seconds. Thirty seconds after that, glasses were presented and filled with water. The menu is simple, not a huge selection but the choices were all solid.

We started with a warm wilted spinach salad topped with bacon and blue cheese. The spinach was nicely coated with dressing but not overly wilted, so the leaves still had some good body to them (not like when spinach is fully cooked), more like fresh but warmed slightly. The bacon added a savory, salty aspect and the blue cheese backed it up, rounding out the salad with a nice creamy finish.

Our entree was a chicken paillard with arugula and Parmesan. Just three ingredients and it was amazing. The chicken breast was pounded thin and sauteed until lightly browned, then placed atop a mound of fresh arugula and topped with shaved Parmesan.

Our service, you ask? Our server was beyond helpful and kind, and seemed to genuinely enjoy what she did. There was a table of two seated down the way from us and the woman at that table was whiny, irritating and needy beyond belief. Our server took all of this in stride and maintained a constant smile and pleasant, helpful demeanor. Myself, I was wondering why someone didn't pop her just for being so obnoxious.

We'll be back!

We went there with some friends and colleagues. We are Italian and we know something about italian food!
Nothing about the location and the restaurant in general. Well not really clean, but anyway it's not the worst thing of the dinner.
The owner bring us the crabs, and was good, but he just have to boil it, it's not so difficult.
We had some starter to share, just few, very small portion and after, as main course, a small portion of pasta (still to share with all the guest).
The meat ragù tasted burned and the salmon was very salty.
So the food was terrible and we pay 70 $ each!!!!! (more than 10 people sit at the table, think about the final bill)
Also the service is not really good. It's not and Italian restaurant and it's not italian food.

If you want something nice with a great food in Chestnut, go to A16!!!! It's not Italian but it's better than an Italian Restaurant. Nice glasses for the wine, great service, tasty food, nothing to compare with E' Angelo.

The octopus appetizer was good and I've never had octopus. The spaghetti was amazingly fresh! You can tell the pasta is homemade. The waiter was amazing! He was very energetic and very informative. We were looking for a restaurant that had availability on our last evening in San Francisco. We grabbed their last table and severely enjoyed the food. I couldn't get enough of the spaghetti.

They accept walkins, not sure about reservations. It's pretty quick seating and service. If you have a big party of people, definitely make reservations.
