I have been here many times and always found the food to be very good and a good value. However, on this occasion, one of our entrees was not good at all, and we felt the salad was good but overpriced.

Great restaurant! Staff are very friendly. Food was so delicious - great ingredients with simple recipes. Came after the ballet for a special pre-birthday treat. Will most definitely be back soon.

Nice little restaurant an easy walk to the symphony. Lots of activity to watch on Hayes street. Had the ravioli filled with kale and parmesan, not a good idea for me as the kale taste was overwhelming. Also they did not have the one item on the menu I wanted for dessert.

A great place to dine before S F Symphony, SF Opera, SF Ballet, etc. - which we have been doing for 20+ years now. Staff Noy and Theodora are always so very welcoming.

Had 5:30 pm reservations because of 7:30 pm concert. Everything was fine except they had already run out of the "special " that I wanted which seemed unusual. The alternative fish meal was fine.

good food, good ambiance, convenient, what's not to like? Great for a relaxed meal, lunch or dinner. Good Italian menu, good house wine.

We had a very good time. The server was very busy, so it took him a little longer to
take care of us than we would have liked, but he was clearly doing his best. His name was
Max.

My pasta dish (a special) was just slightly too salty. However, I enjoyed it anyway.
My husband's past dish was close to perfect.

We had ice cream with Irish Cream with whipped cream for dessert and although it
was soupy, it was delicious.

They don't serve decaffeinated coffee, which I would have enjoyed, but every place
has a limit to what they can do.

It was a lovely experience.

I love this place and try to book a table whenever I'm in the city for a performance. Salads are great, fish is wonderful, especially the rolled sea bass!

My husband loved the red snapper-best he has ever had! I had a special that was stuffed sea bass and while tasty, the portion was ridiculously small. I should have said something. Service is very accommodating albeit a bit slow despite the restaurant not being full. Lighting needs to be better.

Great meal for a date before the Symphony. A wonderful overture for any show.

Nice place. My only complaint would be that the Pappardelle had dried rosemary on top (not a whole sprig which could be removed, but individual needles) that had the unsettling crunch of fingernail clippings. But other than that the food was good and the atmosphere very pleasant and comfortable. Good, attentive but not overly attentive service.

Great food and excellent service. Place was completely quiet compared to other restaurants on Hayes which gave us some pause but in the end we were pleased. If you want a "scene" this isn't it. But if you want a good meal you'll find one here.

We had just attended the Nutcracker Ballet and were looking for a nice Italian restaurant within walking distance. Cafe Delle Stelle was a comfortable place in a busy neighborhood. I really enjoyed the broccoli and kale soup We shared the Delle Stelle salad. She had the lasagna and I had the fettuccini. Everything including the lemonade and chocolate dessert was really good as was the service!

Caffe Delle Stelle consistently has good Italian food. We have eaten here post & pre theater & concerts for a number of years. We always enjoy the food & service.
This evening was a repeat of what happened to us in the past. It was a Sunday & one wait staff did not show. It left 2 wait staff for a very full restaurant. The 2 waiters did an admiral job considering the circumstances. But, as you can imagine the service was very slow.

We were very disappointed. It was our daughter's 18th birthday. We had a terrible seat next to the bar and towards the back and the kitchen. They would not put us in a better place. The food was not tasty and the selection was poor. We will not return and will not recommend it to others.

We were disappointed by the food on this visit. The veal scallopine and the mushroom pasta were lacking in taste. The gnocchi was good though. And the service was slow. We had fond memories of this restaurant from visits from years ago. Hopefully this was just an off night?
