Among four dinners during a long weekend in San Francisco, our favorite meal was at a small "neighborhood" Italian restaurant in the Russian Hill area named Amarena. Our other meals were fun, spent with friends at more well known, larger places, but this experience stood out (not only because we approached it with open expectations). The food was seasonal, with little pretense and a lot of authentic character from our Italian waitress (she was the real deal).
