Service was poor - in fact pathetic. This was my marriage anniversary and I had chosen to go to that restaurant and it was an absolute disaster of a choice.

Wonderful meal and service. Israel, our waiter, was great. Went for lunch, came back a few hours later for a bowl of soup, bar scene was similar to “Cheers”. Our go to place in the city, never disappoints, always great.

Sat in a draft, waiters kept bumping my chair and carrying plates and pitchers over our heads. Yes, it was Christmas, but surely they've been busy before in all these years. No valet parking available. Lasagne was very good.

Deelish!!! Friendly maitre d' welcomed us warmly and enthusiastically, and seated us right away although we were almost 1/2 hour early for our reservation. It seemed like they quickly got slammed, but our service was outstanding, and the food was excellent, so we really weren't affected in the least. What great teamwork! We plan to return again very soon. Highly recommend!

This was our second time at Fior D'Italia but the first for our son and his family. Our son's comment said it best "this place makes you feel welcoming and not like a tourist"! The food was so delicious and very generous, even the grandchildren enjoyed themselves. For great food, atmosphere and service, this is the place to go!

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner here on a recent Saturday night. We were seated immediately and our server greeted us right away. We ordered drinks which arrived almost instantly and were exactly as ordered. We shared the clams and mussels appetizer, which was absolutely delicious. Shared a Caesar salad, it was bet good. I had the veal chop and hubby had the braised rabbit, both were outstanding! We loved the ambiance of this SF classic, and look forward to going again sometime soon!

It’s a bit overrated for the price, based on our experience. There is a lot of italian restaurants around the block that could be a better option.

Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. Our server Eddy was cordial and prompt. He seemed to be forgetful, and had to return to the table to be reminded of what we ordered to drink. For the main course I ordered rack of lamb, and Eddy responded with, "Yes, Sella D'Agnello al Forno", so he heard me correctly. When our main courses arrived I had the New York Steak instead of the rack of lamb that I ordered. I chose not to mention it, as I didn't want to spoil my wife's evening or delay her meal. Actually the steak was fair, and who would complain about receiving a steak for dinner? But I think I should mention it now. Everything else was fine, and we look forward to dining with you again soon. John Stedman.

We came here with our dog in the winter when they had no outdoor dining options, but they were so kind to accommodate us anyway.
The host was awesome and service was very good.
Food is pretty good, not great and it's an older place with old school style.
We really enjoyed it.

Enjoyed the food--two pastas and the scallopini. The poor waiter Matteo was solo managing the door and handling nine tables over lunch which led to significant service lapses and long waits. Not his fault, but not acceptable.
