Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed classic Italian food. The mushroom bruschetta was especially good. Each of our pastas was well prepared and flavorful. There are a lot of Italian restaurants in this neighborhood and I would like to try them all."

  • "This is one of our favorites restaurants in the San Francisco area. We ALWAYS make it a point to enjoy an incredible meal every trip. The gnocchi is amazing - creamy Gorgonzola sauce. Amazing! The beef Ragu is outstanding and the desserts, delictible."

  • "A fun neighborhood restaurant. A healthy portion of veal piccata with nice sides was very tasty. The gnocchi was tender and tasty and the pizza had a nice crisp crust. Definitely family friendly with attentive servers and a comfortable cozy atmosphere."

  • "Was recommended the restaurant by a friend. The lasagna and crab cakes were nice but the pizza was far too oily and not enjoyable. The service was excellent apart from us receiving our main courses almost as soon as our starters were cleared so we felt a bit rushed."

  • "We have been to this restaurant before and the pasta is generally good. We decided to order pizza this time. Not recommended, particularly if you like thin crust pizza."

  • "Great little spot. Sit inside or on the sidewalk. Good food, good atmosphere, good waiter...what's not to like about great Italian food on Columbus street in San Francisco."

  • "Newly engaged my fiance' and I wanted to have a nice Italian dinner. When we were on the bus several of San Fran locals highly recommend Pellegrini as a evening out choice and Pellegrini did not disappoint. The hardest part was where we were dropped off the number streets at one intersection was incredible and was insanely hard to find. We took a cab to Pellegrini and once we were there our server who was also on the phone with us for over 15 minutes greeted us outside and was extremely apologetic. He made up for the miscommunication by giving my fiance' and I outstanding customer service!!! Excellent food and wonder seating. Perfect restaurant with that special someone."

  • "I first found Piazza Pellegrini right after returning from a trip to Florence, Italy. After wandering around North Beach looking for a restaurant, I realized most "Italian" restaurants have an Americanized menu. Piazza Pellegrini has a true Italian menu and is always great. They have an awesome Portabella mushrooms on polenta Antipasti and good Italian wine list. Even the service is true Italian, never rushed in order to turn the tables."

  • "My husband and I had our first date here and we always try to eat here whenever we are in SF. The sea bass and the dish with the award winning meatballs are especially noteworthy. The service is impeccable!"

  • "Nice neighbourhood restaurant in North Beach. Full bar is not available, but the wines were more than adequate. Had crab cakes (in season appetizer) that were awesome, the pasta quite tasty and the salad was a little heavy on the greens, less on the beets and cheese but very palatable. Good service, kind and attentive, over all a very good experience."

  • "Everything about our experience was divine. We sat outside, along the sidewalk, and got to watch the New Years Eve revelers walking to their destinations. Very colorful! The heat lamps can get too warm, but they easily can turn them off if needed. Started with delicious bread, ordered a mid-priced wine, salad mista, risotto and fettuccine dishes, and were way too stuffed for dessert. We'll be back!"

  • "Reserved a table 12/31 with no problem. A small lovely decorated place with very attentive and friendly staff. All catered to our needs and we had delicious veal park. A great location allowing us to go from hotel to eat and then to our fun evening, all on Columbus. Great coffee and pastries the next morning at a close pastry place on the way to St.Peter's and Paul. All in all a wonderful experience."

  • "We were in town over the Christmas holiday's playing tourist with our son- we had dinner at Piazza Pellegrini on Christmas Eve and enjoyed it so much we had dinner again on Christmas night! ( They were kind enough to squeeze us in even though they were jammed with reservation-) Excellent rustic food, friendly, warm service and a reasonable price point- if we lived in San Francisco, we would be back often! A delightfully good find!"

  • "We split the Cioppino which was pretty good. It was our first time having cioppino so we weren't sure about what it was. There was lots of seafood in it. We also split a salad which was very good. The waiter seemed a little affected which was a tad offputting. We did enjoy our food but probably wouldn't visit again."
