    We were staying at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero for a conference. We were a party of 4 friends. We wanted to eat Italian in addition to a variety of other cuisine while in San Francisco. Fior D'Italia is a short walk from Pier 39 and a short tram ride (F train) plus walk from the hotel. We were shopping at Pier 39 so walked from there along Mason Street to the restaurant. The restaurant was not crowded. The booths were cozy and relatively quiet such that we could have conversations without interruption. The food and service were exceptional. Our group ordered Tagliatelle Bolognese, Spaghetti Vongole, and Rack of Lamb as well as Insalata Mista and Caprese Salad. The bread was complimentary. All dishes were quite tasty. We would like to have sampled some dessert, but we were all stuffed from the large portions. We enjoyed our Italian Night out. We walked back to the hotel afterwards (around 7:30 p.m.). It was Friday night and there were plenty of people walking. The Holiday Lights at Pier 39 were a fitting end to a wonderful eating experience.

    This is the perfect venue to dine. The ambiance is quiet enough to have a conversation while having delicious food. Yes, no blasting music where you have to shout at each other. How refreshing. The service was excellent. We had GIL who made our dining experience memorable with his attentiveness to detail. I ordered the veal chop and he said “I’ll go to the kitchen and pick a nice piece for you.” AND GIL DID! The chop was so tender and juicy topped with a delicious mushroom sauce. If you want to have a wonderful old school San Francisco dining experience, Fior d’ Italia is the place to go! Buon appetito!

    I was looking for an old school Italian American restaurant and this place is definitely that however it left something to be desired. It’s kind of run down like faux leather covering of the booth peeling off, the stained printed menus, etc. it just seems that it is not being managed. The food was hit and miss. The risotto was excellent while the veal piccata was off in color and taste. Service was OK. Probably would not go back.

    I came here because of SF restaurant week. Giving it 2 stars because the vibe was nice. I spent $45 on the restaurant week menu and I really wish I had gone to another restaurant or just went to Trader Joe's for the frozen Italian food. The food was extremely mediocre and not great. I was extremely disappointed with the food given the price. I would have much rather gone to another Italian restaurant in town.

    A return to the past. Nice location in North Beach. Easy parking on a Monday night I remember when the hotel restaurant/hotel opened years ago. Fior D'Italia moved in 10 plus years ago after a long tenure on Washington Sq Great decor-very friendly staff. Wines reasonably priced BUT- the 2 prix fixe" menus were overall just OK $45 menu we asked for the melon -prosciutto--good - no additional charge ravioli good but not really fresh-needed more flavor Conigilo not much flavor and I think that the poor hare had been sitting in it's stew for awhile-the polenta had no flavor. The tiramisu was just ok $65 menu Risotto-- needed more flavor Cotoletta was very good--nice generous portion-better sauce Panna Cotta was not good neither of us liked it

    Come for the food, and the incredible vibe only a tried and true institution can provide. We started off our meal with oysters, calamari, and a Caesar salad. The ravioli with Bolognese sauce was delicious, while the osso buco was the most tender I’ve ever had, and perfectly seasoned.

    Fantastic birthday celebration. Service impeccable, attentive and friendly. Food fresh and high quality. You know a restaurant is outstanding when the bread is warm and lightly crusted and they serve it with butter plus olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We had the Caesar salad, tomato bruschetta, fried calamari, tutto mare, gnocchi, fish of the day, and veal scallopini and they were all great. This San Francisco institution should not be missed. Live jazz in the dining room on Sundays as well.

    Tried this restaurant tonight and we were pleasantly surprised as it surpassed our expectations. Food was fantastic and was matched by exemplary service. The veal piccata was very well prepared and the homemade pasta was amazing. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly and worked together with precision - a true professional team. We are just visiting SF but would make this a regular destination if we had the opportunity. Great place!

    Service - They were over-busy, understaffed (what’s new, these days). We had an 8:15p reservation and didn’t get our order taken until 9:05p. It took 3 asks to get butter or more water. The waiter found the need to bump the back of my chair every time he went by. We even moved the table. There was plenty of room behind me. I just didn’t understand it. The staff was trying to be pleasant, but clearly stressed. Lots of customers complaining or visibly annoyed at the long waits. The staff was trying, but they were completely in the weeds. I felt bad for them. And, for us, the customers. It’s hard to have a relaxed dinner in that environment. Food - My Veal Fior was actually very good and well cooked. My daughter’s risotto was bland. Very. My side veggies were good and plentiful, but oddly plated. It was very apparent they were hurriedly dumped on the plate with little care. Sad and funny at the same time. I lived in the Bay Area for over 30 years, never went to this historic place. Felt like I missed the boat on this place by about 50 years.

    An old-school North Beach gem! Off the beaten path on the north side of North Beach, Fior d"Italia is what you think of as a classic SF Italian restaurant. Great hospitality, lively and enthusiastic service, good food ... and strong pours of vino! We live nearby and hadn't been in before, in spite of passing by for years. We'll definitely make Fior d'Italia a new staple!

    OpenTable information states Fior D'italia offers valet parking for $9.00. They do not have valet parking, and haven't had valet parking for several years according to the host. OpenTable should remove this information for those expecting to use valet parking (we got lucky and found parking nearby). Other than being surprised about that, food and service was great!
