OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)

One of the best meals I have had in awhile. We had pizza...excellent; lasagna....excellent; mushroom ravioli...excellent; jalapeño meatballs...unbelievable. Tremendous meal, great service. Made a reservation for 5, got there to check in and they seated us 30 minutes early. Just a tremendous customer service experience. We were in from out of town, we will be back next time we are in town.

Food and location, great
There was trouble checking me in Open Table; had to talk to 3 people there to finally get checked in Open Table.

Good food. Nice ambience for outdoor seating. We ate inside and it was quite quaint. We all enjoyed our dishes. Great Italian food. We enjoyed. Yum! Oh, fun and beautiful.

Our only complaint was the way they wanted to seat 6 of us on one round table pushed up to one small square table. After we got that settled everything was great.

The hostess and server forgot the notes that I sent when I made my reservation online that it was my wife's birthday and I get some instructions of something for them to do upon as finishing our meals that never happened

We had a great dinner at Calzone's . The wait staff was attentive and helpful from start to finish. My husband and I each got pasta dishes which were both wonderful. We will definitely eat here again when we are back in town.

A great stop for a quick, decent dinner while on vacation in SF. Service was efficient and attentive. Recommended.

They never gave me OpenTable credit.

I received an email from OpenTable with the subject line "We missed you at Calzone's Pizza Cucina", while I was still at the restaurant, claiming that I had not shown up for my reservation. When I tried to talk to the manager about it I was told that they could not fix it in the system any longer, and I should make a new reservation, they would give me the credit, and then I should cancel the reservation. This seemed pretty weird to me.

Food was good, better if it didn't take an hour to get one calzone. Granted we didn't have to pay for it, but I'd rather have gotten my food when it was due out and pay for it then me having to ask where my food is and literally get it an hour after we ordered it. Loved the patio side dinning, which made it an overall good experience. I'd try it again for sure. Oh and the wine was pretty amazing too!

The good was tasty and the location was great - right in North Beach with great outdoor seating for people watching. Food all came out very quickly - it wasn't a relax and enjoy - more of an eat quick and move on sort of place. But the atmosphere was fun and food was good.

Had a late lunch with friends. It was not my first time as my husband and I have eaten at Calzone's many times. The food is always good, the service professional and prices moderate. I highly recommend this spot!
