We went there for a family
We went there for a family dinner and it was perfect. My Cioppino was a little on the bland side with the sauce more flavored towards meat rather than fish but every one else commented on how good their meals were so I was very happy I took them there.

We loved it. Wish the near-by
We loved it. Wish the near-by parking garage had stayed open beyond 9 PM. Brindisi is a small and very cute restaurant that reminded us of Europe. Our waiter was attentive, patient and knowledgeable. The food was very good -- even by SF standards.

Reminded me of Italy
The pizza was as delicious as those I've had in Rome. The crab salad crostini was also delectable.

Fun outdoor place in SF downtown!
This restaurant is one of several along a small alley in downtown San Francisco. There are heaters available for chilly nights, which helps enjoyment of the ambiance. On a recent Wednesday evening, we enjoyed delicious food,with several excellent vegetarian options and some great wine! Highly recommend the eggplant pizza with goat cheese and the mushrooms sauteed in Marsala. Service seemed abit indifferent at times, but perhaps that is part of the charm!

What a charming restaurant. Brindisi reminded me of my travels in Italy. My friend and I shared the ahi tuna tartare appetizer and it was a generous serving. Flavors were fresh and bright. I had the spaghetti with wild boar sausage with porchini mushrooms in a light cream sauce, it was delicious. My friend had a perfectly prepared fish .... it was succulent, light and delicious with the side of spinach.

Pleasant place on Belden Place
The restaurants on Belden Place all share the outdoor space on the alley (covered with cloth when the weather is a little less than ideal as it often is). Brindisi is focused on seafood and does it very well. They have a honey-roasted eggplant pizza that makes a very nice shared starter. And they have a number of seafood pasta dishes. One, which I did not try but seemed popular came with a crust cover and the one I did try had a nice spicy sauce and a good collection of well prepared seafood.

SF Financial District gem
We arrived 20 minutes early and was greeted with a smile and a welcoming hostess. Seated immediately. Waiter was friendly and not interruptive. All our pasta dishes were fresh and delicious. Would definitely return.

Dinner before ACT Play
We are always looking for nice, interesting and quality places to dine before our night at the theater. Belden Place has several outdoor restaurants and is close to the ACT theater and a nice walk after dinner through Union Square. We enjoyed the happy hour with oyster appetizer, a drink and wine and had a very nice seafood grill. It is a little pricey but the value is there and we enjoyed our time unrushed and relatively quiet.

good food ... highly recommend
I'd recommend this for anyone who is interested in light Italian seafood. I recommend the Dover sole, but it's all good. The desserts are decadent!!

Wonderful food and friendly folks!
What a fun lunch spot Brindisi is! I felt like it was an Italian mini-vacation. Service was excellent! I had a calamari appetizer and the lobster/crab salad. Delish! I will have go back for some pasta.

Decent experience... tasty food
Came here for lunch. Decent restaurant in an alley with a whole bunch of other restaurants. Food was pretty good. You have the option to share or have a whole dish. Most people share though from what I saw. Sat outside, quaint and cozy, but the table that I sat at was lopsided. Couldn't tell if it was the table or the ground. Waitress didn't bother to help and it was kind of hard to flag down the service workers. Other than that, the food and the experience were good.
