I found this great restaurant near the Exploritorium in SF. Salads were reasonably sized. Pasta was excellent and truly home made. Service was great and Fausty was a wonderful host. We will definitely return

This small restaurant on Chestnut Street packs a lot of flavor into its fare. I had the Snapper, one of the house specialties, cooked in a lemon pepper sauce with fresh basil, garlic, and tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious!

Our family of my husband and 2 daughters, ages 17 and 20 were looking for an Italian restaurant in the Marina District if San Francisco, near where we were staying. We landed upon this 100% authentic Italian restaurant. The pastas are homemade. I had the gnocchi. My husband had the special and our daughters had the spaghetti with wild boar ragout. All dishes were outstanding. The food was so good we ordered two desserts and then our waiter, Fausto (whi was from Capri) brought us his favorite... Grandmother's cake. It was fantastic!!

This is a very small, authentic, Italuan restaurant. We noticed this place has won the Zagat award .., and for good reason.

This was clearly the best restaurant meal we have had all year. Fausto made it special. His Italian accent was so heavy, it was hard to understand, butcher was a gem. Our service was impeccable!!

For the best Italian food in San Francisco, look no further!!!

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!
