We had a great dinner at Ristorante Milano. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We had a party of 6 and although the space was small, we never felt cramped or rushed. My meal was fabulous and authentic Italian! I loved the neighborhood feel.

It's a fairly small room, but very pleasant. Aldo, the owner, is from Rome, where his father was a noted restauranteur. But Milano lives up to its northern Italian name. The daily specials offer variety, we've never been disappointed with the food or the wine. Aldo's wine list offers value, you can spend a lot or you can spend not... More

Lovely staff but food not great. Sup and grilled veg to start with followed by the seafood linguine which quite frankly was not edible. Husband had a plate of meat which whilst he enjoyed it didn't look nice.

Family of three enjoyed delicious pasta and veal dishes with fine wine. In addition to the great food, this Italian restaurant has a comfortable friendly ambience. We enjoyed good conversation with both waitstaff and other patrons.

Nice little neighborhood restaurant. My wife and I had a good meal but overall nothing spectacular. On the plus side, it has a small family run feel.

Lovely intimate Italian restaurant. I stopped on my walk back "home". I'd spent the day on a tour of Muir Woods and Sonoma/Napa wineries and this was the perfect place to stop relax and enjoy a well prepared meal. I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola and it was very good. The gnocchi were tender little puffs of pasta! The Chardonnay... More

We had a reservation at 5:30 through Open Table - walked in and we were the only ones there on a Wednesday evening. Place did eventually fill with others (not full) by the time we left at 7:00. The restaurant is small and intimate, so if you can snag one of the tables by the window you will have a... More

We stumbled across this tiny bistro on the way back to our hotel. It looked quaint but we didn't think we would need to book. We turned up about 7pm to find it heaving with people however we were quickly seated. The food was the best Italian my husband and I have ever eaten! I had the spaghetti with wild... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
