Have been visiting SF for 3 years and this place always catch my eye. What a deception. Place is nice, but variety is small... an italian place with no gnocci? Only 5 types of pizza On the other hand, service was top notch. Prices...jeje, its SF....25.00 for a pizza 8 for a beer...

If you like pizzas don't eat here. Not real pizzas. The decoration is good but the place have a strange smell. They only have big pizzas (for 2 or 3 persons).

We enjoy Buca at home so we decided to book here for Thanksgiving on our vacation to SF. The place was packed and we had to wait (standing for much of the time) 30 minutes past our reservation time. The Thanksgiving dinner was very good and had a nice variety - could also order off the regular menu.

The decor and atmosphere is as kitschy as it gets. Red check vinyl table cloths, vintage pictures of celebs that I doubt many have even stepped foot in the place and old 50's & 60's music. For the price I expect better than plastic water cups & cutlery wrapped in paper napkins. The menu with pictures of the meals kind... More

This is a fun restaurant for big families having a celebration -- the servings are big and not expensive and surprisingly tasty! I usually don't trust big chain Italian restaurants but this one did not necessary feel like a chain. The servers super accommodating and tables are really for big groups. There were two other groups celebrating birthdays as well... More

We were a little taken aback when we viewed the menu and saw the prices. But then realized that the plates are supposed to be shared and supposedly feed 2-3 people. Still a bit expensive, but you're in San Francisco, so what do you expect. The food was good. We had Bruchetta, pizza and pasta. They had a worker come... More

We enjoyed good food once we received it. The resturant was not particularly busy at 6:45ish on Saturday night though the service was very slow. We were just about to leave when our entree was delivered. Service aside, the food is good and the atmosphere is definitely Italian.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
