3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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 saying "I'm sorry" in a dismissive way, but we needed to eat and we had... 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.

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 to the table. We ordered different wines and tasted each other's wine and they all... More

One word. Lorenzo. The owner who will make you smile and give your table an unforgettable evening. Food is very good. Lamb dish is superb. The branzino excellent. The gelato a recipe from grandma. A lovely nob hill gem tucked away that only the locals know about. Worth booking a table right now!!

I came there for dinner and I took the ravioli with some white truffle. The service is remarkable and the place is just charming and peaceful. The value quality-price is excellent.

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 inconveniencing the staff just by being there. However, I overlooked it because the restaurant is... 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 and attentive to every guest in this full Friday evening dining room yet there was... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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 homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
