Lunch at RistobarI recently had a early evening solo dinner at ristobar. I was quickly seated and a waiter came to my table straight away and offered me the menu and some water and bread. Food was great, not cheap though. I think you can find a better mix between quality and price but this place is a sure pick if you want quality food.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA little bit of Italy in the MarinaDelicious food in an atmosphere that evoked a neighborhood in Puglia or Tuscany.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Find!We were there for the first time prior to attending an event at the Palace of Fine Arts. So close, you could walk it if you are a walker...we arrived before they opened, but they were all present and fine with seating us. Two of us were waiting for our 3rd person, so they were more than willing to get a drink while we were waiting... great experience, will be return! I also accidently left my phone, they had found it and said they would hold on to it. They closed at 10:00, we got out of the event at 10:10, and called just to see if I could still pick it up since I drove up from San Jose area... YES they said no problem - the staff was amazing!!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastico!Chef Michele took us from San Francisco and sent us to Italy with every bite. He know how to pull flavor from each ingredient he prepared for us. My family felt the Italian charm from the staff. I would say that this is one of the best Italian places in San Francisco.

The food here was fresh and of high quality. The service was very good and the restaurant itself was comfortable, but still trendy. Overall, we were happy to find a new neighborhood "go to" restaurant for a nice meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice and quiet until 7:30Nice and quiet until 7:30 when we left but getting too noisy, which our dinner partners say it usually is in evenings after 8.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Group of 8.
