A gem in San Francisco. Superb food. You will not find a better Bolognese sauce in California. Tiramisu was the best I've had in a long time.
We come to SF every year for 5 days the past 9 years for a conference held at the Marine's Memorial Hotel right next door. We always have at least 2-3 of our dinners here as well as sometimes lunch. I have even ordered food to my room and the manager delivers it! Everything is great and we have had several things on the menu...always fresh, hot and nicely presented. Service is very attentive but not over bearing. We always look forward to coming here! Very highly recommended!

the food was good and the ambiance was cozy. the waitress had a couple of mishaps, but overall did a good job: I think she was training someone but didn't tell us that so it was confusing when the other person brought the dessert menu while we were waiting for our main dishes. also, they didn't ask if we wanted dessert at the end, they just brought the bill. also, my cocktail didn't taste nor seem like it had much nor any alcohol in it. I kept thinking about what was wrong while I was there, but didn't put my finger on it until after we'd left.
Traditional Italian menu produced well cooked food in generous portions at fair prices, good wine list with local &Italian wines
As always my favorite place in San Francisco for great Italian food. The service was a little slow tonight but in fairness there were new servers.
Will definitely return.
Wonderful small restaurant. The service was fabulous and the food even better! A pure delight! Highly recommend for couples and friends
Nice small Italian restaurant near Union Square. Good regular menu and excellent special.
This is one of my favorite restaurants and because there are only about 12 or so tables, you must make a reservation. I would say to stick to the pasta dishes which are great. I ordered a veal dish this time and although the piccata sauce was very tasty, the veal was a little tough. With the meat dishes though, you get a choice of mashed potaties, risotto or polenta.
Great service, delicious food.
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.
Great chicken parm!
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
Small but cozy place to have a comfortable dinner with friends
Great Lasagna and ravioli brought by a friendly wait staff
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.
We were visiting from Vegas and the food was fantastic!
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.
We had an early dinner before Theater. We are locals, but somehow had never eaten at or known of Cesario’s; we will definitely return. Loved the small neighborhood feel, generosity us portions and tasty Italian entrees.
i always enjoy this restaurant. I go to the theatre in the neighborhood and it is convenient and good food.
We were in San Francisco for a conference and decided to go to a play at the San Francisco Playhouse and we wanted to get a little dinner first. We made an excellent choice! Dinner was quick and delicious!! i had the butternut squash ravioli which was delicious and my sister had the Eggplant Parmesan which was also delicious!! i had the house Pinot Grigio. We were happy that we had booked our reservation on Open Table as the dining room filled up quickly. It was a little loud when it was full but we were fine and we made it to our show on time. Thank you for the delicious dinner and wonderful attentive service.
Great menu selection, all our meals were delicious, good service, reasonable prices.
As always a great dinning experience. The food is the best in the city. The staff is great and as always, my go to place.
Cesarios' never disappoints whether for lunch or dinner. Right next to Marines' Memorial so very convenient for events there. Service always good - even if the staff is a little harried as the place is tiny but very busy.
They don't make them like that any more. Unfortunately.
Dinner at Cesario Brasserie on a Friday evening was a delightful experience. The restaurant is relatively small with a modest decor and a friendly staff. The resulting environment is that of a small family operated village restaurant. The meat lasagna was excellent. The price was reasonable considering the location near Union Square. Recommended for a comfortable and enjoyable dinner, but do not expect a fine dining experience.
Unpretentious Italian restaurant with good menu choices.
Great Italian neighborhood restaurant, service is efficient and friendly. I ordered pasta which I loved and portion was generous. Tables are a bit close together.
Business lunch. Great location and outstanding food
MET NY EXPECTATION. HAD A BUSINESS LUNCH FOR TWO AND WE WERE BOTH VERY PLEASED.
Very friendly service. Fast and delicious. A good value for downtown San Francisco.
This is a warm and inviting restaurant with excellent comfort food. Their bread with olive oil dip is is especially good.
Went here on NYE so expected it to be busy. We were sat within 5 minutes of our reservation time which was great. Service was fast and friendly. I had the chicken parm which was well seasoned and very flavorful. My wife had the smoked salmon pasta which she also very much enjoyed. Overall a great experience.
Had dinner on New Year's Ev e with 6 of us. The place was packed (not unexpected) which was fine. Service was great. Food was very good. But they've got tables crammed into every possible space. Because our table was large, we were in a fine spot but some of the tables were tucked into spots not intended for tables. Anyway, food was good. Calamari excellent. Lasagna very good.
