We were walking up Columbus and decided this was the place for dinner. We were able to sit on the patio on a beautiful evening. We had the calamari (which needed some salt) for starters. I loved my tortellini with pancetta and peas. For desert...More

This place was a great find. Their pasta is homemade, and fantastic! We had the meat ravioli, gnocchi and lamb ragu, and basic pepperoni pizza. All were simply delicious. Had a local feel, and outdoor seating facing Washington Square. Probably should call ahead, unless you...More

We decided to go out in San Francisco without a reservation, hoping there would be an Italian restaurant that could squeeze us in. We found Pellegrini... the food was fab, we had 2 humongous pasta dishes which were absolutely delicious. We had an outside table,...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
