Italian
At Credo, we believe that good food and good company go hand in hand. We believe in the time-honored tradition of the dinner table debate and the swirling mix of ideas that makes this country great. We believe simple things can be brilliant, like authentic, responsibly-sourced ingredients, attention to detail and gracious hospitality.

Credo's menu reflects a deep appreciation of Italian culinary traditions combined with Northern California sensibilities. Distilling robust and complex flavors from simple ingredients—including local produce, sustainable fish and imported Italian specialty items—and classic preparations, our selections are quintessentially Italian...with a distinct point of view.

Really fantastic food, selection, service. ambiance. My sisters-in-law from Quebec who has spent a lot of time in Florence LOVED this place! The mushroom risotto in particular was to die for! Will definitely come again!

This was a very uncomfortable experience with the incredibly HIGH NOISE LEVEL. We literally
were unable to have a conversation. Everything else was fine but I will unlikely not return owing to the
impossible noisy atmosphere that prohibited a normal conversation.

Always enjoy the food at Credo. The downstairs room is not the best as it can be cramped and loud, but it’s always made up for by how delicious the food is.

Food and service were excellent.
We had the salmon which I'm sure isn't their specialty, but it was delicious!
A little pricey due to location is my only main criticism.

Server was great, everyone seemed to be pleasant. Food was excellent. Most of all, the strawberry shortcake was to die for. I’m still dreaming about it!!

Loved the food. Loved the food. Loved the food!!! The only downside was it was too loud as a place for a business lunch. We found it very difficult to hear each other and really had to almost shout to be heard.

I had dinner here to catch up with a friend. The noise level is manageable and is good for casual dining with very good food. A little disappointed with the dessert (but still good). Loved the pork chop! Would definitely return perhaps for lunch.

Credo is a refreshing take on nuovo Italian cuisine. That take traditional dishes and give them a new twist. Very enjoyable.

Great food with wonderful service. The staff could not do enough to ensure our experience was as best as possible. Good modern Italian inspired menu and the octopus was divine...!
Only downside was that the restauarant space itself is a little cold and open lacking intimacy.

The quality and portion size of the food has really gone downhill. I used to really enjoy this place but the steak salad I had was unacceptably bad this time. Not worth risking another visit.

Wait staff was great, but the food was very salty and uneventful. We wouldn’t order the same items, especially at the price we paid for the meal.
The appetizer was great. The group really enjoyed the appetizer the most!

We had very good service from the wait staff. Of the eight at our table, only one complained about her steak being tasteless. This is a noisy place, so if that bothers you, you should pick another restaurant. It is also expensive at over $500 with tip for eight people and no dessert or coffee. Also, be aware of the San Francisco mandate. a 5% surcharge to pay for medical insurance for the employees. It seems an expensive restaurant such as this should be able to pay for employee medical insurance without adding it to my bill.

The restaurant is charming but feels cramped. Although I had a reservation for two my company did not join me and I was shown a seat at the bar. The manager did not attempt to seat me at a table after that. However the bar tender was gracious, very accommodating and professional. The food is mixed; the black ink risotto vas superbly executed and the scallop was finely cooked but why would anyone add a creamy tomato sauce to this? The lamb chops again were cooked to perfection and the accompanying asparagus were tender, however, the truffled mashed potatoes was just awful. The wine list has intriguing wines and the markup is not high. I finished the meal with a cheese plate and everything on that plate was perfect. All said, it is a pricey restaurant but may go there again.

The noise in the restaurant was extremely loud with people nearly shouting across their tables. We sat down and I couldn’t have a conversation with my friend across the table. We left right away.
