Layered Pasta with Cheese, Prosciutto and Meat
Fabulous authentic Italian meal! Caesar, Veal & Sole were all delicious
Very good food. Great portions. Excellent martini. Friendly atmosphere. Just a little bit slow, perhaps a little understaffed.
Came for restaurant week. Got an appetizer, entree, and desert for $25. Menu also included 25% discount on wine bottles. Food was good (pumpkin ravioli was a standout!), but service was extremely slow. We waited about half an hour for someone to take our order for drinks and food. Appetizers came out quickly but entrees took about another 30-40 mins to come out. Very slow to come around and pick up our card for payment as well. Dinner probably lasted 2 1/2 hours. They seemed understaffed, so I'd recommend going on a less busy night or being prepared for it to be a long experience.
Wonderful Sunday lunch with Jazz band, great food and service, absolutely a great place to go to in The City.
My friends and wife thought the food was great. Service was excellent as well.
Neighborhood charm, friendly staff, terrific pasta - especially the bucatini. Add a meatball to it and you're set.
Staff are professional and attentive. Really nice ambiance. My new favorite place that will be a regular stop on our SF visits.
I think the traditional Italian dishes are likely to be quite good. The Rabbit and Fish were covered with tons of sauce which was only fair in flavor.
It was super noisy when we were there, maybe related more to some folks seated near us.
Waiter was excellent and attentive. We did wait for food for quite some time, but they were also quite busy. Friendly atmosphere.
Honeymoon and they made it special
Incredible. Tortellini literally made me cry w joy. Service was impeccable. Lalo the GM is a gem! It’s a loud, warm old school Italian joint and was just the authentic vibe we wished for.
Absolutely fantastic! Staff is excellent, very friendly. Lalo the host is so welcoming, truly feels like you are ‘coming home’. Food is consistently great.
The food was authentic and very well prepared. The staff was friendly and the overall experience was a delight!
Great experience...authentic and ambiance.
Excellent in all ways
Server was MIA and sloppy
After a long time of not dining at Fior D'Italia, we were relieved to know that the quality of food, service and ambience has not changed. Fabiano, our server, was courteous, attentive and knowledgeable and efficient. As usual, we enjoyed our delicious favorites: crispy calamari, linguine tutto mare and osso bucco on a bed of smooth and creamy polenta. Our bottle of chianti perfectly complemented our meal. Caffe mocha and gelato were just the right ending to another wonderful dining experience!
Parking was a challenge, but we will be more prepared next time.
First, we love the policy of showing vaccination card and ID. We felt very safe dining there. We also understand the restaurant industry has been hard hit by Covid and are happy to dine out to support. That said, we waited 20 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order. The only person who stopped by was the busser who dropped bread, no butter or olive oil. Then we waited longer for drinks, and painfully long in between courses as the restaurant got busier. Given the circumstances, it would have been a more pleasant dining experience if service were a bit more coordinated, especially since other tables who arrived after us got served faster.
This was a last minute decision and we loved the experience. The food was outstanding as was the service. The setting was perfect for a warm evening of dinner conversation. Truly a traditional old world Italian ambience. A bit separated from lots of area restaurants but very worthwhile dining experience.
Waiter, John, very good and attentive- charming Italian restaurant with lots of history. Food was fabulous!!
The staff was phenomenal, especially the host. I cannot remember his name but I dined there on Saturday, September 11. He was so friendly and welcoming to me and it made me feel great.
Food was amazing as usual. Staff was friendly and professional!
Excellent! Will most definitely return.
Restaurant was understaffed, we waited over 10 minutes to be acknowledged (thankfully) by a waiter who was not even serving our area. We ordered drinks 1st, but didn't get them until after our food came. We had to request bread 3 times before finally getting some. Nearly ruined my wife's birthday dinner.
Good food, horrible service. We booked on Open Table saying that the occasion was "Birthday". Hostess was wearing a hoodie with GAP logo in gigantic letters - inappropriate attire for this white table cloth restaurant and so not expected with waiters in black pants/white shirts and looking the part. Seated in an almost too well lit dining room with 1/2 the tables filled with diners. Our server greeted us and then proceeded to mostly ignore us for the evening. He would say "I'll be right back with the bread" and then not come back. Dishes were not cleared until the meal was over and we ordered dessert. Server stacked the dirty dishes on a neighboring table - stacked is a nice word = he basically dropped them on top of each other. We only saw one "busser" who refilled our water once. Never saw that person again. Could not tell if the restaurant was short staffed or that the staff just didn't care. Fior d'Italia is so close to Fisherman's Wharf that the restaurant likely draws a lot of tourist traffic and perhaps the servers don't care if the patrons never come back.
On the plus side the food was good. Calamari appetizer and Ceasar salads were mediocre - would not order again. Pasta dishes ordered all around and they were tasty. Had the cannolis for dessert and they were freshly stuffed and excellent.
We are locals and will not return. And birthday was never acknowledged either. Wonder if the owners were not on site this Labor Day Monday night and the staff was just trying to get through the serve without delivering the "service" that so many Open Table reviewers have raved about. Good luck if you go - have patience and a really good sense of humor if you get our server.
Food was excellent! Great piano player set the stage for a romantic dinner for two.
This restaurant serves wonderful food and all 4 of us loved our meal, loved sitting outside to eat and enjoyed our dinner. We liked the location just 2 blocks or so off Fisherman’s Wharf. Our server was attentive and humorous— a little too much for my taste but others seemed to enjoy it. We would definitely return to this restaurant and recommend it to others.
We were late, visiting town. Got in just under the wire. The servers were lovely to us and our kids. Never made us feel rushed. Great food! Huge portions.
The food was amazing osso bucco was amazing as was the Fruita del Mar Pasta.
Salads were good. The wine was nice. Ambiance was amazing.
The only issue was the service was VERY slow and we had to "ask" constantly for faster service.
Very old skool San Francisco feel.
Love Fior! It’s an iconic institution in SF and popular among both locals and visitors. Their food is consistently great. Good wine list too.
Everything was wonderful
Food was AMAZING
Very nice and enjoyable
Very charming old San Francisco Italian restaurant with a great menu and great food. Everything you could want from a good Italian restaurant from a wonderful Caesar salad to a perfectly prepared and very tasty veal piccata. The only negative was the service. It was spotty at best with too long a wait before anyone appeared and then having to flag down the waiter for a second cocktail and when water. It was clear that one waiter was handling a huge amount of tables as was the busboy. It then occurred to me that they are no doubt dealing with the pandemic related understaffing that is prevalent everywhere. So I have to acknowledge that. Regardless, I will be back again soon.
Such an amazing meal! Waitstaff was incredibly friendly and nice.
Requirement of vaccinations enforcement in a very cool manner. Highly recommend this neighborhood place.
Delicious food and drinks!
AMAZING FOOD!!!! Authentic Italian in a safe clean neighborhood
Perhaps the most charming part of the evening was the staff, but everything was great. Not every place can survive 135 years in business. Come see why this place has.
Nice dinner just way too slow. Maybe it was just an ‘off night’ for them.
