Some great hits, a few misses.Loved the stone fruit salad and rice pudding dessert. Too bad the mushroom pizza was WAY too salty.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFlour + Water has been andFlour + Water has been and continues to be the best and most innovative restaurant in SF.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!! Excellent food.Loved it!!! Excellent food. New flavors we've never experienced anywhere. Great service, fun, patient, informative. Amazing experience.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPasta to die for!The food was unbelievable....tried the Tasting Menu...everything from start to finish was awesome! Service was good although some of the wait time between dishes was a little long but they were very busy so I could overlook that. The only thing I hated was the noise ...they had music up so loud and music that just didn't fit the ambiance...left with a headache...if the food wasn't so great I would not go back just because of the noise level...but actually I can hardly wait to bring some friends to try that pasta!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing everythingThis restaurant was fantastic. The waitress was super friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. Our reservation was a little on the late side (8:45pm) but the place was still crowded and the atmosphere was lively and cool. We only had one day in SF and I'm definitely happy that we went here!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply AmazingMy husband and I went here based on a recommendation of a friend who lives in SF (we are from the East Coast). I knew this place had a lot of hype, and wasn't sure whether it would be "too trendy," but in my opinion it is worth all of the attention. My husband and I ordered the pasta tasting menu with wine pairings, and it was quite simply the most incredible, interesting (but not weirdly, pretentiously so) pasta I have ever eaten. Fresh, handmade, delicious. And the staff was incredibly warm and friendly. I confess I wasn't even sure what some of the items were on the menu (Pork Trotter? Meat from around a pig's foot, as it turns out...and quite delicious), and they answered my questions without any snootiness. Just perfect.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI wasn't sure if the place would live up to the hype, but it did. Great service, great food, it was a nice evening and I'll sure be coming back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely going back to try more!Comfy casual vibe (although a bit loud) with great food! Went for a late date night with 1015pm reservations. We arrived around 945pm, but they were great about seating us a little early. We had the salsiccia pizza (pork sausage, capers, olives), rigatoni with braised oxtail, and finished off with the chocolate budino. The pizza was simple but yummy - crust was nicely chewy with those great charred bits, delicious sausage and, with no cheese, the tomato sauce and other fresh ingredients were highlighted; pasta was amazing - well-cooked, oxtail meat was super tender and flavorful; dessert was a nice ending of creamy goodness with a dash of sea salt to balance... YUM! Certainly going back to check out the tasting menu when we have more time!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMenergtic and cozythe pasta's are what they are known for...we tried the sampler the first time just to get a sense of what they were offering..also did the pairing of wines...we were satisfied and the return trip recently, we ordered two pasta dishes...one...superb..the other...so-so!!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWorthy of a trip, but not the hype.I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, with a reservation acquired 2 months in advance. Although the food was great, and the wine selection wide and varied, neither of us understood the hype. The food was well prepared, presented, and very flavorful. The noise level was acceptable, we certainly didn't need to yell.
We'd go back, with a reservation5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing tasting menuThe Pasta Tasting menu with the wine pairing was fantastic. This place never disapoints5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, blasting sound system,had two deff. pastas which were outstanding. also a great asparagus appetizer, and 2 deff. desserts. Met our expectations. Will return. Had to ask waitstaff to turn down the sound system and as could not hear each other but had no problem hearing the loud guy across the way who was yelling over the sound. They did turn it down.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMChocolate Budino was amazingThe chocolate budino was out of this world. If you go, do yourself a favor and order it! We had an awesome server, who knew the menu and made great recommendations.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of fun!Really enjoyed it. Fresh pasta was amazing. Came with a group and tried almost all of them.

We will be back again next time we are in San Fran5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!We did the tasting menu and everything was amazing. The portion size for two people was very reasonable and filling by the end. There is very few to drink if you aren't having Wine or Beer. Also you need to make a reservation as far in advance as possible if you want to get in.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pasta and atmosphere!Loved everything about the restaurant, we ordered the tasting menu and had a really difficult time choosing the best dishes. Great atmosphere and service. After going to Central Kitchen the previous day, this place just validated their great dishes and ambiance.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant with reallyGreat restaurant with really good food. Unfortunately it's pretty well known, so it's super crowded. And the waitstaff is really busy - so service wasn't super amazing. But the food was good!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the salmon appetizerWe had the salmon appetizer which was incredible....simple but enormously fresh with just the right flavors,
The pasta was extraordinary as well but the highlight of the evening (besides our waitress Katy) was the chocolate "pudding" with the espresso cream and sea salt. Wow. I am salivating just thinking about it.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCute waitstaff!! and ofcourse..verycute waitstaff....warm setting with woodsy tones...excellent pastas..."no doubt" could be the name of this place!!...romantico place to come...in a cool neighborhood!!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a hot spot in SF.This is a hot spot in SF.

I highly suggest their pasta tasting menu (a 7 courses journey with one apetizer, 5 pastas and one desert). OpenTable has been great to book our table (eventhough we had to book 3 months in advance :D).

Service and food were superb for a great special occasion date night.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with my food-loving girlfriendWent with my food-loving girlfriend for our first tasting menu experience. Every item on the winter tasting menu was mind-blowing; our favorites were the pappardelle with pork trotter and the ham fattisu with whole-grain mustard. The sauce on every dish was so good that we cleaned it off the plates with the house bread.
We are both big eaters and this was our first experience, so we were concerned about being full at the end, but the dishes are more filling than they look and the portion size increased for the last two dishes. We went home pleasantly stuffed.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
