This is a true Italian restaurant where you're expected to keep the table all night. Enjoying each other's company over food & wine is recommended. The food is AMAZING. I had the wild mushroom ravioli - exquisite. Very good wine list too. Don't forget a glass of Limoncello to finish the night. We sat outside and we're warm & cozy... More

We went here after a long day. We sat outside along the walk - the principal dining as inside appears to be small. The tap was broken but he waiter retrieved beers from a sister restaurant seeing out disappointment (my partner can't drink wine). When asked if the soup had scallops, the waiter said no, shrimp. But, wait, we can... More

Great Italian place with excellent outside seating off the street but in a little alleyway. Great dishes for very reasonable price considering it's in the middle of the financial district. The outside seating has a cover just in case it rains or sprinkles. It's right next to Occidental cigar bar which is great for after dinner drinks and cigars. Definitely... More

There was eight of us and we had a table outside in the alley. It was a closed off area in an alley way where the restaurants in that area have tables. It gave a great atmosphere of being somewhere other than a big city (fun). Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was great. We had one mishap with... More

This restaurant is in an alley south of Kearny and Bush street. There are several restaurants to choose from. We had the veal scallopini with risotto and spinach and it was great. Paired it with a nice Sangiovese. Great choice in the alley.

The restaurant is in an alley with half a dozen similar, so clearly there is competition. Booked online without any hassle, but was almost empty on arrival which was worrying. However, service was good and food absolutely top class. Seafood risotto was great and wife`s clam linguine apparently also top class. Would have been better with a few more people... More

First, Brindisi is tucked away on Belden, which is this little alley with out about 5 restaurants that all have Italian style cafe patios. The atmosphere is awesome. It's hard to screw up a nice day in SF, but Brindisi really sets it off. It's a sit down place, but doesn't take all day, I was done in 35m. The... More

It is always nice to have a real Italian waiter in an Italian restaurant! If you like fish, drop by Brindisi. The menu had lots of choices, but the ciopino was especially well prepared. The bread is addicting and the service was with a smile.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
