We were fortunate to get a reservation on a Thursday night; who would have thought it would be difficult, but we were shutout on other choices. We were literally over an hour early, but sat at the bar for an excellent cocktail, and were actually...More

They have a good selection of tasty appetisers, however the mains were a little bland for my liking. Expensive for what it was.

Wow! I would never have found this place without the recommendation from the hotel across the street. It is very unassuming from the outside, but once you step inside it feels like a little slice of Italy. The carbonara was excellent! along with the delicious...More

Had a business dinner here and wasn't amazed. Prices are steep - especially for the salads and beginnings and the portions not commensurate with the value. The waiter was very knowledgeable but he literally read us the entire menu so that was not pleasant. Food...More

Good food but certainly not brilliant. Excellent waiter who was extremely knowledgeable. The restaurant is very brightly lit and the ambience is lacking. There are better Italian restaurants in the area.

A restaurant with so much potential but not living up to it. Waited an hour for a table (although I had a reservation) but got a free drink for the inconvenience. Food was pretentious, lacked seasoning and the portions were small but the waiter was...More

This is one of the worst places we ve ever been. They are extremely overpriced and food quality is super poor. They do not even make their pasta and charge the dish for $18. Salads were a joke and wine not good. We were biased...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
