There are so many good places for excellent Italian food in San Francisco. This is not one of them. I've been here numerous times and customer service has always been poor. As you'll note from other reviews, people often feel that they are infringing or...More

We enjoyed the experience in this smaller restaurant in Knob Hill. The food was great, the service was good and it was comfortable for a party of four to have a conversation. We would definitely return when we are in the area.

Returning after six years to celebrate here again, and they did not disappoint, seating us at the loveliest table in the room, pampering us with complimentary bruschetta, tiramisu, as well as glasses of sherry on top of our very delicious meal. The owner was present...More

This is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants anywhere. Owned by two Italian brothers, who own two restaurants (one in San Fran and one in Rome). Fresh simple awesome. I first visited with my wife, on the recommendation of the concierge at the Ritz. It...More

From the reviews it looks like a battle is raging between local devoted loyalists and some cranky trolls. For the record, the host is energetic, welcoming and authentically Italian. The food was well prepared, especially the tiny asparagus appetizer. Osso Bucco was good but sauce...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

I'm not sure, but I doubt it. I have been going there for almost 10 years. The food is fantastic. I would call the restaurant, ask for Lorenzo, the owner and ask him.
