The pizza was very good and so was the pasta dishes. However, the service was very poor and the waitress made mistakes on our order and never even bother to check if the food was good.

I've been here before and went back knowing they offer a bit of solitude in the Union Square area. A business lunch with two colleagues, service was excellent even when one arrived quite a bit late.

Menu a bit limited, but the different dishes we ordered were all quite good. The Caesar salad was one of the best I've ever had.

My only gripe was that they were using only one small corner of the seating area with all guests crammed in shoulder to shoulder. It would have been nice to spread out a bit.

Will undoubtedly return.

Not too happy with carbonara spaghetti - sticky - raw egg on top - generous with bacon but not a good dish overall. Wait staff was good .

My wife and I had lunch at Cupola while shopping at the mall. Nice environment, good choice of salads and pizzas. We really enjoyed the margherita pizza and the dome salad, as well as the flavored Italian sodas. My only complaint is the service - our waitress absolutely disappeared before we finished and we could not find to request our check and pay for lunch. After waiting more than 10 minutes, we finally flagged down the manager who was able to take care of it.

I haven't been here for a few years and I'm saddened to see the quality and service at such a low level. When I first ate here a few years ago, I was impressed by the quality of "mall" food. The food this time wasn't bad per se, the margherita pizza was actually pretty good, but the quality of service was so terrible that it dragged the whole experience down to food court level. I hope they do not train their waiters to ask if people want their check when they are obviously not done... if they want to leave the check, just say, "i'll leave this here, but no rush" then at least I believe them. But if you are passive aggressively rushing your table then by all means do not fail to deliver on a requested extra glass three times -- requested of 3 different people. I don't mind having as many people as you want to service your table, but you better make sure that the service is impeccable. Also, don't pretend that you aren't rushing your table and then serve the 2nd course and main almost as soon as you serve your first course... Either do not pretend to be an upscale restaurant and charge less than $50 for a dinner without drinks, or make a little effort to train your service people better. I wanted something a little more special, Cupola did not deliver.

I picked the restaurant to have pizza and red wine with my mom. I liked its location and the interior of the restaurant. We ordered warm pulled-to-order mozzarella, couple dome salad and margherita, as well as red wine. We loved the salad! However, about the mozzarella, we thought that it was smaller and thinner than we expected, and the taste was kind of plain. Anyway, thank you for the nice dinner! We enjoyed the tasty wine and pizza at that night!

Food was fair. We had an assortment of pizzas which were all good. We had polenta fries which were way too salty, and charred calamari which we would have preferred fried.

Service was definitely lacking from the moment our group of 8 sat down. We ordered a bottle of Barbera wine and originally they mistook our order and brought a single glass of wine. When we informed them of the error, they returned the glass to the bar, at which we spied the bartender downing the whole as in two large gulps! When the bottle finally arrived, the waiter didn't know how to use the bottle opener!

It was early for dinner so service should not have been an issue as not as many diners. There seemed confusion on who would be our server to begin with. Luckily we advised them we were on a time limit and asked that all food be brought at same time, which they complied with.

All in all it was disappointing. There are many other choices of places we could go and probably will do so in future.

Their kale salad is one of our favorites. The mixture of baby kale with pistachios and currants add the texture and a little sweetness but it's the citrus that makes the salad for us. Their pizzas are great too!

The expectation of dining with friends was heightened by the delightful atmosphere, and then reality. Service was not bad, it was ok. The mushrooms were from a can, which took away from a very good pizza dough. The Latté was cold, yes cold, disappointingly cold! The second one was slightly warm, and once again disappointing. Then the server got mad as she explained that lattes are always cold.

I may have even rated this place too high. I can't wait to I not go back here.

Cupola is my favorite place to dine when I'm at the Westfield Shopping Center. I love the pizza. The thin crust is crispy and chewy at the same time. Go for the Brussel sprouts which is seasonal. The poached eggs on top gives them a silky texture.

Dome salad was terrible. Dried bits of vegetables without any hint of dressing. Was it forgotten? What a dome of disappointment. Calamari appetizer was served lukewarm. Beef pasta was a bit better but portion was small and served on a appetizer plate to make it look larger. Pizza was the best of the above. If you must come, order pizza and axe out the others...

Cupola is in the Westfield shopping center, downtown S.F. Good Italian food. We like their wood fired pizzas, Polenta fries, and the Squid ink pasta.

Central location for family with easy access Bart and great family friendly food. Happy hour pizzas all around. Great wine list and beers on tap for the adults. Fun spot to meet

We went with a group of 6 before the theater. It was still Happy Hour and we got our pizzas for half-price. I would go back again.

Food is good. Menu items seem to change a bit. We ordered the calamari small plate and it was quite different from the last time we ordered it. My husband really enjoys the tuna Panini but that wasn't on the menu this time. Service can be a little uneven.

I chose Cupola because five diverse old friends were getting together. Different tastes. Some drink; some don't. Some are watching their budgets. Cupola had something for all of us and did not break the bank.

This was my 3rd of 4th visit, and I've always been happy.

We went to this place to carb load the night before the race. The food was delicious! And service was great I will for sure come back. P.S the bread there is addictive! Lol

I've dined here many times. Today we had the baby kale salad which is very good. The arriabata pizza is spicy but today the chef had a too heavy hand with the chili peppers. We love spicy but this was ridiculous today. But we'll be back again.

Colleague and I stopped by and had a pepperoni pizza and the bucatini. Good thing the staff put the pizza on a perforated metal tray OVER a plate - there was so much grease, it pooled in the plate! The Buccatini was cooked with way too much oil making it slippery and it splattered everyone around the table. Why?

On other visits, these problems did not exist.
