A word from Jackson Fillmore Trattoria
Jackson Fillmore Trattoria is a local favorite for a relaxed, neighborhood meal. Jack has been cooking up great Roman and Southern Italian food at Jackson Fillmore since 1985. We have a small, intimate dining room with a dining counter for those who drop by. Our wine list is primarily Italian, representing all of the great regions in Italy. Our Tortellini al Forno and Tiramisu are legendary. We have a sister restaurant in Marin County, Cucina Restaurant & Wine Bar in San Anselmo. Check out our website to view samples of the menu and wine list, or for more information about us.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We popped in on a Thursday night (thanks to OpenTable) to find a lovely, intimate space filled with great food and a lively yet relaxed atmosphere. Our party consisted of my 80-something mother-in-law, my middle-aged sister-in-law and myself, and my teenaged daughter. We all found menu items that tempted. Portion sizes were perfect. We found no fault in the appetizers, the salad, the main courses (mostly pasta, but one fish), and the dessert. I look forward to returning!"

  • "I was looking forward for good food in a nice restaurant environment but was very disappointed. The food was definitely over priced for the food quality. The restaurant was very cramped with no space in between the tables. So basically you can hear all your neighbor's conversations.....it was just too noisy for my taste."

  • "For me, when I go to a restaurant, it is all about the food. Jackson Filmore Trattoria certainly satisfies that criteria. The food is excellent at a reasonable price; however, you have to ready to put up with tables placed closely, and high noise level."

  • "We ate here at the end of a busy long weekend - on Sunday evening - and had a 5:30 reservation for 6 people. We unexpectedly picked up 3 more folks and they were able to accommodate our growing group splendidly! The food is excellent and the ambience is intimate and cozy and very family friendly!"

  • "This is a fun place. It's crowded, a little noisy but pulsing with the vibrancy of The City. The food was simply outstanding. Every dish we tried was delicious: fired mozzarella, Sicilian chicken, spaghetti carbonara, affagado...just the best. And the waiter was a kick. Great night out."

  • "A limited number of tables, plus bar seating. Great spot for locals who want a consistently very good meal at reasonable prices."

  • "We love to bring out of town friends here whenever we're up in San Francisco. The food is great and it has a neighborhood feel. Loved the various pasta dishes we had. My husband had the chicken Siciliana which was very flavorful. We all shared the asparagus salad - also very good."

  • "We are new to the neighborhood and are on a quest to find great local restaurants with delicious food, casual atmosphere, friendly knowledgable staff . We found it here and we will be coming back again and again and bringing our friends. Great find!"

  • "We love this restaurant. The grill tiger prawns linguine is soooo good. Love it. Tortilini with proscutto and mushroom is the best. We go here once a week."

  • "Great food - loved the chicken Siciliana and the spaghetti carbonara were both excellent and the beet and bur rata were delicious. But the noise level is deafening."

  • "You would never understand why this restauarant has such a following of locals based on the street view. Once you are inside it becomes apparent as the place is small, warm and inviting. We loved the antipasti plate which we shared. My wife had a delicious pasta dish and I had the Red Snapper which was terribly over sauced. Nevertheless, we will be back."

  • "...including many trips to Italy. Absolutely lovely flavors and presentation, creative dishes, mouth watering. We received our food (table of 7) almost before we ordered! Appetizers were amazing, as were the main dishes. The table went completely silent once the food arrived - always a good sign. Definitely will return to this hidden gem."

  • "Great friendly neighborhood trattoria that reminds me of wonderful Italian dinners at similar restaurants in Bologna! The food and wine are consistently excellent as is the service from arrival to departure. One of our favorites!"

  • "I've come to expect the comfort and familiarity of "our" neighborhood gem, but the quality and "zip" of Jackson Fillmore classic dishes always energize. On this occasion we had a large group, including two New Yorkers who know great good - all of us were blown away by the burata fungi and spicy red sauce dishes. Of course, the zucchini carpaccio always surprises first timers with its nutty freshness and flavor explosion - WHAM!"

  • "I was introduced to Jackson Fillmoreany years ago and have been going there for years. One thing that I can say about this place is that it is incredibly consistent from visit to visit. The food is outstanding. Everything I have ever had there has been delicious. My favorite item is not even on the menu, and that is Chicken GOV. It's garlic, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar and it is just wonderful."

  • "After our entree came, we were virtually alone for the rest of the evening...the waiter did not come by again until it was time for dessert. We poured our own wine refills, no bread replenishment. When my entree arrived, the pasta was not quite al dente. When I mentioned it to the waiter, he offered to redo. I asked if he had a microwave, and he said no. I then said never mind. At that point, he walked away without saying a word. The food was good. A very extensive wine list, though not too many moderately-priced bottles. I would suggest bringing your own wine and paying a corkage fee. Parking is just OK in that part of town, but we were lucky."

  • "Hadn't been here in many years and it used to be one of our favorite spots before we moved out to the 'burbs. Even better now! Delicious food, great wine rec from our waiter. Just a very pleasurable experience from beginning to end. I certainly will not wait so long to go back next time."

  • "My daughter turned 12 and this is her favorite restaurant in SF. We were not disappointed. Once again the food was amazing and the service was really good for as busy as this place is. They had no problem designing dishes specially for us that were not even on the menu! Love this place!!"

  • "When in doubt we go to Jackson Fillmore. Great Italian specialties, and salmon on beans and salad. Good combinations I wish I could remember to try at home, finished with affigato and coffee. Just tell them what you like in a wine, and they make great recommendations."

  • "No complaints about the food or service; they were both very good. My problem involved our "reservation." We arrived at 6:33 PM for our 6:30 PM reservation. It was obvious that no table had been reserved for us as they were all occupied, so we had to wait about 10-15 minutes for somebody to leave before we were seated. In other words, our "reservation" was meaningless and we were treated as walk-ins. Why accept reservations if you don't intend to honor them? If I were Open Table I would consider dropping this establishment. For what it's worth, there was a "Reserved" sign at one seat on the bar, so these guys must understand the concept of "Reserved.""

  • "I had made 9pm reservations for a Fri night for myself and one of my best girlfriends. We arrived and it was so busy we could barely get into the restaurant. Within a minute or two I was able to tell the host that we had a reservation and we were somehow seated at our table within 5 minutes. This place was packed the entire time and it was probably THE BEST Italian food I've had outside of Italy. My friend and I shared the Insalata Romano which was delicious and then I had the Gnocchi Gamberi and my friend had the Tortellini al Forno. Both dishes were quite rich but OH SO GOOD and worth it. I really liked how the restaurant brought a piece of bruschetta to the table to start. I will definitely be back!"

  • "We got late evening (9:30pm) reservations on Friday night. We were a group of 4 - the restaurant was alive - perfect for a fun evening. Not ideal for a more intimate dinner on Friday's"

  • "We enjoyed a fabulous meal. This is definitely a neighborhood, kid friendly, busy place. When we finished our fantastic meal, there was a line of people out onto the street waiting to get in. Now we know why!"

  • "A sweet little place with a friendly vibe. The trattoria we should all have down the block with perfectly executed simple dishes. The service is casual but very competent and knowledgeable. The wines our server recommended went perfectly with cur pastas and chicken dishes. We were too full for dessert, maybe next time if we don't order so much. This is a great place to go with friends for a good meal and conversation. We'll definitely return."

  • "Some of the yummiest bruschetta I've had since living in Italy; everyone in my party of 5 enjoyed his/her entree, and I loved my dessert (tiramisu) as well. If you want to grab Italian in Pac Heights, this is hands-down the best option. Will come again."
