I've been here several times and the food and service are always good. Can be very loud and packed on the weekends. Don't count on space at the bar.

We open the door and I greeted the host. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Tables are very, very close to each other. Service is nice enough. If you do not know Italian culinary words, they can help you translated the menu. Very nice wine menu.... nice enough for a nice dinner.... exceptional, no. However the dark chocolate... More

In a city with so many great food options, it's hard to stand out. The ambiance is great for a night out with friends after work or even on the weekend and the good, overall, is also great. The octopus (piastra roasted octopus) appetizer was beautifully seasoned and not at all rubbery, which is a plus, and the tuna (pesce... More

My husband and I loved their lasagna. Our friend really liked their risotto. Very good wine selection with friendly, knowledgeable staff who can help guide your selection. A bit loud though.

My wife and I love coming here for some fine Italian food. We enjoy sitting at the counter and drink great wines from their impressive wine list and share a bunch of their great appetizers and main courses. The atmosphere is hip and elegant at the same time. Love it every time!

Our son and a friend took us here for dinner on our final night in town. Amazing service and divine food was completed by an incredible recommendation for a bottle of wine. Everything was impeccable from start to finish. I would highly recommend Perbacco for anyone looking to impress clients, family or friends.

For this, our first Trip to the West Coast of the USA as a Couple, we did quite a bit of "pre-planning", particularly as to where we might eat. We selected "Perbacco" for our final night in San Francisco largely because it was close to our Hotel (the Omni), and also because its ratings seemed fairly good. These are indeed... More

This is a wonderful place for an authentic northern Italian dining experience, complete with Piedmont wines and flavors. The service was friendly and attentive.

I enjoyed our most recent visit to Perbacco but didn't love what I ordered. Tuna crudo was relatively bland. Pork chop was good but not great. Probably should have just gotten a pasta dish. Brussels were a nice side but I've had better elsewhere as its become so popular. Service is always top notch.

Thank RossfromCLT

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.
