Visit at least once per year and always enjoy the tasty food, cheerful staff and good service. The wine list has real bargains. WE both had veal dishes this week. The portions are large and yummy. Look forward to another visit.

Had a reservation for 1 on a Sunday night, quickly seated and terrific service. Veal Parm was great and very reasonably priced. Awesome meal all around.

Always a solid choice in the neighborhood. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cesario's for good Italian food in the Union Square area. We've been going here four about 5 year, and have never been let down.

The food was classic Italian with fresh flavorful sauces .. Excellent pet tale sole.
Love the warm ambience of a small place in the center of town so easily accessible. My guests were impressed !

The food was wonderful. The portions were not overwhelming yet not too skimpy. The atmosphere was busy but the seating arrangements allowed for table conversations. We will definitely return when visiting San Francisco next time.

Una cocina de los mas normal. Sin gustos especiales. Niguna sorpresa. Cualquier cocinero amateur cocinaria mejor. Como conocedor diria que a este resto le falta un cocinero con pasion por dar de comer a gente como un regalo con amor y profesion. Absolutamente normal! No volveria

Cesario's is a gem of San Francisco. The owner and the wait staff are warm and friendly. The food is outstanding - the best comfort food in town. It's our go-to neighborhood restaurant.

One year anniversary dinner. Wish we got a window seat but instead we were by the kitchen despite making reservations. Food was good. Prices were high but par for the city. Flourless chocolate cake was good. Good service.

Four of us dined at Cesario's to celebrate my birthday. We all enjoyed our meals and left nothing on our plates! My Chicken Marsala with Risotto was delicious. My husband had the Chicken Parmesan which I tasted and it was also very good. Our waitress was cordial and service was great. I am pretty picky with food because I consider myself a good cook. The only thing that I could say was not perfect was that my chicken could have been more tender. There were three of what I would call cutlets of breast meat that would seem to be of that size due to pounding them which would have made them more tender. So I'm not sure why the chicken was a little too firm. But the Marsala was so delicious that I was able to put that aside and enjoy the meal.

Supurb food and service. Chateau St Jean Chardonnay should be listed as California not Sonoma as on the wine menu. Still a good value.

Great service , great food and nice quiet atmosphere ( we were there early though at 5:30 on a week night) Chicken Picatta was some of the best i’ve had... smooth, great flavored sauce.
