This rates as one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever enjoyed. Lorenzo, the owner, is very involved during service and added to our experience. The food and desserts were amazing and having booked a table for 4 well enough in advance to celebrate...More

Our first visit, but definitely not our last, we were greeted by Lorenzo as if we were old friends, seated at once and were on our way to a beautiful evening. We ordered a bottle of wine which was decanted, a nice touch, and set...More

What a great night! When we first walked in, everything felt right. This place is tucked away in the Russian Hill district, away from the craziness of the touristy areas. We were welcomed like long time regulars from the second we walked in until the...More

I happened upon this spot by sheer accident, staying with a friend close by. I wandered in, by myself, on a Monday night, and was seated with a very nice view of the East Bay and bridge. Wow. My next surprise was the wine list,...More

Great neighborhood place. Seats only 30, or so but this allows Lorenzo to focus on you. The food is great and if you can't decide, ask him to put a few things together. I try to go there every time I'm in SF. Plan on...More

Still a great place. A nice neighborhood restaurant, Lorenzo and his wife have maintained the level of food and service as always and it has to be the best Italian on Russian Hill. Try the truffled pasta and the Branzino, wonderful!

Food was very good and the owner is a real character. We felt at home from the first moment we entered. And a great side effect is that the restaurant is on the top hill of Nob Hill so you can work off the dinner...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.
