We had dinner at Puccini & Pinetti Sunday night with cousins. My wife and I are from out of town and didn't know what to expect. Then we learned out cousin had no knowledge of the restaurant either. I want to report that we really thoroughly enjoyed Puccini & Pinetti. The service was spot on and the food delicious. I... More

This place was fantastic! I had the Carbonara and it was incredible. I really enjoy Italian cuisine but am often disappointed with the restaurants but Puccini & Pinetti met my expectations!

Last night in San Fransisco after a 14 day tour decided to go somewhere special. We weren't disappointed. Comprehensive menu, good service and not outrageously expensive. Recommended.

Despite the fact that we were quite late and there was only one other table occupied at that time the service was quite slow and generally not good. The spaghetti were far from Italian pasta taste.

My wife and I had a long weekend with family in the city. Everyone else had left so we were looking for someplace close to our hotel. Trip Advisor had favorable reviews of this place. We just wanted to have a very light dinner, so my wife ordered the minestrone soup. Unfortunately it was luke-warm and pretty bland and mostly... More

We went to Puccini because it was suggested by the Parc 55 staff and because it was just across the street from the hotel. Go early because by 6 pm it is packed on a weekend. The atmosphere is casual and there is lots of people and kitchen watching. I had linguini and clams and it was delicious with just... More

I have always liked this place, but the last time found it a little bit going down. The staff seemed very tired, everything looked a little but run down, the wine and the cocktail were just ok, definitely no longer glamour.

We were at a conference at Parc 55. Decided to try this place out because it was across the street. I was very happy with the service and the food. I got the Business lunch which included a salad or soup, an entree and a dessert. The entree was chicken marsala which was delicious. The tiramisu was also very good.... More
