Very good Italian food, attentive service, perfect wine selection, very cosy terrace overlooking the Golden Gates. I wish I have the possibility to come here more often.

Pantagruel is an amazing place where I've enjoyed the genuine taste of Italian cuisine (which is unusual outside Italy). The wine menu is 6-page long, but the sommelier will help you find what you want. It's definetly a must-go!

I went with a local who highly recommended the restaurant. At the moment the road in front of the restaurant has been dug up so be aware of that especially if you are wearing heels. It was 2030 Wednesday and we didn't have a reservation...More

The presentation was good, a lot of staff, good location. All of which maybe meant the prices a little high. I went with the specials menu. The pasta dish was reasonable but not spectacular. No pizza on menu. Restaurant not quite as good as I...More
