This is my new favorite restaurant. It DOES remind my of my last visit to Rome! It was everything I wanted for my birthday dinner. Relaxed, friendly, hospitable and of course, delicious. I felt welcomed and well looked after. We had a tasting menu with...More

The service: Very rude and impersonal. We had a reservation at 6:30pm which the owner/manager (?) said we had emailed and moved earlier to 6pm, which we did not. He told us a big private event was booked later in the evening and he kept...More

I've been dining here once a year with family for many years. It is definitely my favorite restaurant ever. Went with a couple of business colleagues this week, and had a wonderful meal, no surprise.

We enjoyed dinner with friends. The wine and food was excellent. Every woman leaves with a rose. We've been here before and will definitely return!!!

For me dining is an all encompassing event. If the food is great and everything else lacking, then it's highly likely I won't return. So here is my view in a nutshell: 1. If you order wine by the glass they don't bring the bottle...More

There are so many good places for excellent Italian food in San Francisco. This is not one of them. I've been here numerous times and customer service has always been poor. As you'll note from other reviews, people often feel that they are infringing or...More

We enjoyed the experience in this smaller restaurant in Knob Hill. The food was great, the service was good and it was comfortable for a party of four to have a conversation. We would definitely return when we are in the area.

Returning after six years to celebrate here again, and they did not disappoint, seating us at the loveliest table in the room, pampering us with complimentary bruschetta, tiramisu, as well as glasses of sherry on top of our very delicious meal. The owner was present...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

Is there any MSG used in the food? Including "soup base", Knoww, Maggi, etc? Hidden names of MSG could be hydrolyzed or autolyzed protein, for example.

I'm not sure, but I doubt it. I have been going there for almost 10 years. The food is fantastic. I would call the restaurant, ask for Lorenzo, the owner and ask him.
