Had a romantic Christmas eve dinner here. Chicken marsala was terrific, as was the beet salad. Gin and Tonics were also sooo good. Our serve, Amy, was the best. Very attentive and helpful with the menu and everything else. It's hard to work on Christmas eve, she was great.

It's a very good place to go if you want Italian food in the city centre, but having so many places in Little Italy... obviously Italian food is much better there. Anyway if it's close to your location and you just want a quick Italian dish, they serve high quality ingredients.

The server openly admitted to us that the restaurant was doubling its prices because it was Xmas and they could make more money as it was one of a few restaurants open. The food was of OK standard but not worth the $300! Plus gratuity... More

Best to make reservations. We did not, but the staff was so very kind and set us up with tables for 7. The food was excellent and the staff very professional. They also have a great happy hour menu, but that also is a crowded tim.

Booked an early table for dinner during our 3 day visit to San Francisco. Staff were efficient and helpful. Portion sizes were generous so try not to fill up on the bread basket whilst you're waiting for your starter to arrive.

Situated just off Union Square close to hotels, the restaurant is convenient, nicely decorated and clean. The first night we sat at the bar and ordered a small pizza and salad. It was just fine but the bar area was noisy with a raucous crowd. The 2nd night we sat at a table. The dinner pizza was $8 more than... More

Just went to dinner with some friends at P&P a couple of nights ago. One of my friends is eating gluten-free and was excited to see they have a whole set of gluten free options. The service was very friendly, and prices were very reasonable. We had a bottle of Coppola cabernet (I had never had one of the Coppola... More

There was nothing wrong with this restaurant, there was just nothing exceptional about it. The food was OK, but not that tasty. The service was OK. The restaurant was very busy and even though they want it to be a nice dining restaurant it had more of diner type feel to it.
