Really surprised by the ratings here and perhaps I had a bad experience but nothing went well here. The restaurant was dated and noisy. The service was fine but nothing special. However the food was terrible. I ordered 2 dishes and both were below average. So many better places in SF. Try Tadich Grill next door if you're in the... More
Really good Italian place in downtown San Francisco. Has a more swanky location next door (Perbacco), but this little brother is just as good and more informal (many seats are at the bar). Original and uniformly excellent pasta and risotto plates.

I went to Barbacco with a friend and was seated at the bar for lunch. There was enough space to have our own plates plus the four dishes we had ordered to share. The restaurant was clean, food fresh & delicious and atmosphere fun & casual. We loved every dish we had: strawberry & fennel salad, chicken thighs, lasagna and... More
