Usually LOVE this place but we ate there a couple of nights ago and the food was just meh...Maybe an off night or maybe the regular chef was off...don’t know. Disappointed
Sergio was wonderful. Our family dinner was very special and we will definitely be back!
Great Italian restaurant whose fare far exceeds that of other establishments in the neighborhood.
Street parking is a contact sport, so use the public parking lot one block away.
Nice neighborhood restaurant with excellent food, great service and a warm atmosphere.
My husband and I were visiting the bay area for a weekend and found Capannina online. They had excellent reviews and for a very good reason. The ambiance, food and service are excellent. We tried the bean soup to start, which was delicious. I had the sole and my husband had the halibut. Both fabulous. We finished with the tiramisu, which was heavenly. We would definitely return again!
Small restaurant. Food and service was excellent; food was fresh. Delicious bread with dipping oil.
Excellent food prepared freshly and well. We highly recommend and will
We love this restaurant. It is such a pleasure to be able to talk to the other people at the table and be heard. We had the Prix fixe meal as we arrived before 6 pm and it is a fabulous value. Had the Caesar salad with crab (great), the chicken under a brick - also very good and warm chocolate cake dessert which was fabulous too. All this for $30! Service attentive but not overbearing, ambiance terrific and quite honestly I can't find any fault. Have eaten at many other "high end" restaurants that can't hold a candle to this love neighborhood gem.
We will be back
Consistently good traditional offerings and services to match.
The food was great. Service only fair. My husband and I ordered appetizer and main course. His soup came out first, about 10 minutes before my app. Was told mine just took longer. But, he couldn't let his soup get cold, so we ate our food separately. Also, while the restaurant was mostly empty, they seated a very loud couple right next to our table (our elbows almost touched each other close) when there was plenty of room to spread out. The woman was complaining loudly and nonstop about a variety of things and it put a major damper on our enjoyment. Two basic courtesies to which the staff seemed oblivious. I doubt we will return.
Nice to sit outside with the heaters. Very dog friendly. A local restaurant. Each person ordered the prix fix options (5 - 6 p.m.). The salmon, pork chop and tagliatelle with beef were all good. Staff was helpful and their timing was excellent. The only flaw was not disclosing that a bottle of wine was two to three years younger than the menu listing. When this was pointed out our server made poor excuses. Overall would return.
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Well selected wines to accompany the dishes, too.
Fabulous all sround!
My wife started with a green salad with a very flavorful, light vinagrette dressing followed by sole with a lemon caper sauce. I started with a salad of burrata on arugula with grilled peaches and sliced tomatoes, followed by cioppino, which was one of the best I've had. The bread was quite good and served with a tapenade. We finished splitting a panna cotta. Capaninna also has a good selection of Italian wines. Everything we ordered was delicious, and service was excellent and well paced.
The food was great. The waiter was great. What can I say, it was great.
This was our 2nd time in about 6 weeks that we had dinner here. We thought it was the perfect spot to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We got a great window table where we could people watch and sit side by side, which is our preference. The food was very good and our waiter is one of the reasons we went back, so much fun! We now feel as though this is “our” restaurant.
Tres bons plats et service accueillant.
Poulpes en entree sont un delice
Really delicious food prepared well and of high quality. The linguini alle vongole was chock full of clams which was great! The service was friendly and welcoming. Our various courses came out very fast which made us feel a bit rushed- it was one of the fastest dinners we've had in a while. One thing we noticed that was a negative was that the walls and corners were quite dirty with black dust- that was rather unappetizing.
Food was delicious 😋 The pasta was fresh. Service was great. Tables are very close together so crowded.
Went for my birthday dinner. It was great! The food was amazing!!!! The service was great! Intimate dining. Great for dates and special occasions, as well as business meals and get-togethers. Highly recommend and would come back the next time I visit.
Everything they prepared and served was fantastic. The wine list was equally impressive and beautiful. While this was my first visit, I I cannot waitvto return.
Just a perfect night!
The food and the service were amazing! We got the price-fix which was both delicious and reasonable! Love it!
I am Italian, have lived in Italy, have family in Italy and very opinionated—the selection, food preparation, presentation and friendly waiters, was exceptional. Returned the next night.
Capannina is my favorite Italian Restaurant in San Francisco. Consistently good food and service.
Great food and service. Already planning my return visit
Nice atmosphere, perfect service. People are really nice. The food is really qualitative.
Went for our anniversary . . . food was excellent as was the service . . . wanted sparkling wine for a toast but didn't want perseco . . . waiter suggested a Ferrari Trento DOC brut which was excellent.
Owner made a point to chat and even met us down the block as we walked to our car.
From the crunchy bread and pesto spread to the heirloom salad with grilled peaches, basil and arugula, to the lobster cioppino and veal scallopine with lemon and capers . . . it was food fit for a special occasion . . . or for that matter . . . even a simple night out.
We'll be back!
I eat here as often as I can, it always takes me right back to some of the small great places around Italy. The food, service, wine and atmosphere are awesome.
Our family visited here during our vacation to San Francisco. This was an excellent meal and the service was so welcoming! Such a nice break from the hustle and crowds of the Wharf and other tourist areas.
Delicious food and attentive warm service. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.
È un piacere riscontrare un ambiente ed una cucina italiana rivisitata di buona qualità a San Francisco. Tutto molto buono e servizio impeccabile.
Amazing service, wonderful food!
Incredible place. Love the place, we are regulars.
Nice small restaurant, cozy, clean. The food is good and tasty. Service is also good. Restaurant was packed but we did not wait long. Friendly staff. If you like Italian food you will not be disappointed.
A favorite of ours - always excellent and inventive. The squid ink risotto with scallop was fabulous! The housemade pastas were perfectly prepared and thoughtfully paired with sides, the wine list is very nice. The service was pleasant, attentive, and helpful. We'll be back, no question.
Love this place, our servers are always so attentive. Unfortunately the special caprese salad didn’t have any taste. The tomatoes were not firm and had no flavor. The scallops in the risotto were over-cooked and slightly dry poor things. Usually we love everything, maybe it was just an off night.
Excellent. Impeccable service, divine food, great atmosphere and fabulous location. I would definitely become a regular.
Always good classic Italian restaurant good hot food served well and proportions were huge
This is a repeat appearance. This is the restaurant that I go to again and again and again
We really like this restaurant a lot but it could use a facelift. Paint, art. Another bathroom if at all possible. And the noise level isn’t energized but rather annoying. I couldn’t hear anyone last night at our table
