I came in for a business trip and wanted to meet a friend for dinner so made a reservation through the online site. Was kind of annoyed that we didn't get a table, since we were just seated very closely at the bar and it...More

Four of us arrived around 1:00 on Wednesday, the restaurant was very crowded and noisy, we had a short wait for lunch. The service was good, however, with a busy restaurant we had to ask for bread and butter and water more than once before...More

We enjoyed a beautiful evening at this restaurant. Out of everything I tried I would recommend the fettuccine. Also, the meatball dish was excellent with a little spice. The Brussel sprouts are surprising with the acidic kick that is added. Also, they have beautiful cheese...More

The mushroom risotto was great, so were the Brussels sprouts and the cheese and the mushroom appetizer. The asparagus bruschetta was good. The service was prompt and polite. The Genovese soup was hard for me to eat, overpowering pesto flavor. The butterscotch and chocolate gelato...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
