Stumbled across this little place and decided to have dinner. Served quickly and food arrived quickly too. Pizza was nice and filling had to take a slice home! Good selection too.

Hopped off the Cable Car at Mason & Columbus in search of a nice Italian meal. Soon into our journey we found Piazza Pellegrini. Took a look at their menu and decided this was the spot as they have one of my favorites "Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare"on the menu. My meal came loaded with lots of mussels and a... More

The people were friendly. The food was delicious. I'm ready to go back. I had the Linguine with clams while the husband had a pasta with sausage and broccoli. We were both very satisfied. Dessert was affogato which was an ice cream with an espresso shot poured over it. Yum!

We ate at this restaurant 2 years ago, having come upon it while walking through North Beach looking for a reasonably priced restaurant that wasn't too noisy. We specifically went looking for the restaurant during our recent visit to San Francisco. We found it is still as enjoyable and reasonably priced as our first visit. We arrived fairly early, around... More

Ate here on New Year's eve. Service was slow, but that's to be expected on a busy night. The spaghetti did mare (because they were out of risotto at 7) was ok. The spaghetti amatricianna was ok..the meatballs were very good.

We stopped in here for dessert, coffee, and drinks while in the area. Both of the desserts we tried were perfectly prepared and full of flavor. They also had a great wine selection and delicious espresso.

Well I have :) We were in SF for T-giving weekend and had talked about an AMAZING Italian place we happened into years earlier with our young daughters and now as... More

After a long day of touring SF, we wanted to sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice dinner in Little Italy. Piazza Pellegrini looked cute and caught our eye. Wish we had known that they were really having a bad day. The fault lies exclusively at the hands of our waiter. We were seated rather quickly, and it took some... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff, plenty of food, but nothing spectacular. Some veggies were probably from the can.

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.
