We were looking for a close-by Italian restaurant to the Holiday Inn on Van Ness and found Ti Piacera. While some of the reviews were less than flattering, there were enough positive comments to warrant giving the restaurant a try. We're glad we did!
The service was quick, friendly and efficient. The food (veal piccata and chicken marsala) was very good as was the tieramisu for dessert. All-in-all a very nice, casual dining experience.

Friends and I celebrated a birthday here recently and enjoyed the experience very much. Our reservations were for 6:00, so the restaurant was not very crowded, just a few tables with small groups, but it started to get busier as the evening wore on. We really enjoyed our appetizer, main courses, and the wonderful dessert. The wait staff was very attentive. All in all, a very enjoyable experience, in a good location. We all would recommend this restaurant.

Buzz buzz, yum yum
Just up from the apartment where we are staying we found this bright spark of a place. Waiter knew his menu and wine. Let us sit and enjoy wine and starters without feeling rushed. Great, really good rucola and fennel salad, and dish of mushroom ravioli and the pork marsala, both superb. Split a classic creme caramel and voila!

Me piacere Ti Piacera
I love to go here before concerts. This time the brunch egg scramble was delicious, and my partner had the wonderful eggplant parmesan. It's a pleasant atmosphere

Great food and serviice!
The restaunt took care of our table of 9 very graciously. A few members of our group were stuck in traffic, and they were very considerate, told us not to worry, no problem, etc. Very unusual in a big city. The food and service were great!

My colleagues and I recently went to lunch at Ti Piacera and we're absolutely BLOWN away. This is the best Italian restaurant I have enjoyed in a very long time! The bruschetta was delicious and their mushroom polenta was perfectly flavored! Their salad was perfectly dressed and tossed with fresh ingredients. We also had the porchini mushroom ravioli in a pesto cream sauce that was incredible. The chicken fettucine, mushroom risotto and eggplant Parmesan... All delicious!
They serve this amazing roasted garlic in olive oil with fresh baked bread as well that is to DIE for!
Aside from the food, the ambience and service experience was superb! Exposed brick and candlelight, it's gorgeous!
Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!

Tired of fighting crowds at all the popular places (some of which it's not even clear why they're popular) we had brunch at Ti Piacera and were so glad we did! Cute spot, great food, charming waiter (even if his English was not quite up to snuff), what more could you want? We had a little trouble getting the check when we needed to leave but all was well in the end.

Tasty Neighborhood Gem
We were having drinks at The Top of the Mark and searched nearby Italian restaurants and Ti Piacera popped up. It is truly a neighborhood gem, they sat us right away even though we were early. The service was incredible, delicious bread with garlic olive oil, I ordered the margarita pizza and my boyfriend ordered a pasta dish with shrimp that was recommended by our server. We were stuffed but still ordered the biscotti at the end and it was fresh and tasty.

Ti Piacera delivers its namesake
My husband and I looked for a local Italian restaurant for a pre-concert date. We found this through Open Table and it was great! Perfect for a "just right" meal--not too heavy, not too light. The atmosphere was pleasant and the waiter was engaging and prompt. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for a dinner for two!
