Delicious pasta/seafood dishes - the warm caramel bread pudding was to die for! Bread was so so - the only semi-disappointing part of the meal. Located in Nob Hill, it's a fun section of town to walk around in as well.

Went to Scalo before heading to hospital for scheduled inducement of labor with my wife. My filet was cooked perfectly. The mushroom risotto was an amazing side. The beef was topped with a creamy melted cheese that did not overpower the natural beef flavor. Beer selection = excellent. I had a taster before ordering a pint of the La Cumbre Porter as a dessert while my wife thoroughly enjoyed her Budino. The service and pacing was perfect. Healthy baby boy the next day!

The italian food at Scalo is great. The wine selection is extensive. View is great from their patio.

Wow! Stopped by for dinner mid-week because the restaurant looked nice...several diners, white linens, nice table settings.
We hit the culinary jackpot!
Competent wait staff. Delicious specialty cocktails, good wine list with reasonable pricing. Delicious calamari mista appetizer. Salmon was perfectly prepared. The pear and gorgonzola pizza was very good, but could have been left in the oven one or two minutes more...but we still took it back to our room for breakfast.
Meal pricing is very reasonable.
Hope to go back some day for another meal.

We believe it's useful (especially when the Balloon Festival is in town!) to talk about the good things at SCALO. It's not for the folks who insist on absolute quiet, tinkling piano, but no song, and requisite singing Italian tubby waiters. It is about good food and pleasant wait-persons, for-value cocktails, and smart management sincerely wanting your patronage to be a pleasant experience. Unlike some places we've dined in, there's never been a difficulty with too-done, too-rare, or too-watery
"watercress sandwiches". So, consistency is their bella-forte! Tell them what you want and they'll arrange it...vegan, too! Bon apetite...cheers.
