Aperto is bit of a mix as a bistro. Nice neighbourhood. Outstanding, professional table service. Small but strong Italian focused wine list with knowledgeable service. Nice vibe. Interesting menu and we wanted to love the food but it was disappointing. Quite "American Italian". Our dishes...More

Aperto offers a limited menu, but the food was quite tasty. Not much options for kids. The atmosphere is casual, but staff are very friendly and willing to help. Nice local spot on Potrero Hill.
