CEO of startup took us here and was great. Small out of the way place. Great wine and the truffle risotto was some of the best I’ve had.

After an hour drive to San Francisco, plus 35 minutes looking for parking, we arrived at Allegro Romano at 515 pm, a full half hour prior to our reservation. They open at 530pm, or, at least they indicate so. We waited outside the locked front...More

Girlfriend and I wanted a quaint, quiet and romantic setting and we found it at the Allegro Romano. Food, wine and service were excellent although we were a bit curious why the electricity and lights went out sporadically during our visit. The owner was very...More

We had a return to the old school style of restaurant, where personal service, delicious food, and a sense of intimacy abounds. Lorenzo, charming and engaging as always, sets the attitude for the staff with his warm embrace of service and friendliness. It's my favorite...More

Went with a large group and left the food up to the owner. Everything he had delivered to the table from the antipasto to the desserts was outstanding. The wine list was very good, the service was accommodating and everyone enjoyed the experience.

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

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.
