    It was good. The veal had a flour sauce instead if a cream sauce, Chocolate mousse was from a package instead French version. Pana cotta was a pudding instead the original version und the Melba sauce was a questionable quality. The Merlot was good.

    A great choice for a party celebration without all the normal restaurant noise. We had a really nice small private room for a party of 9 and service was polite but possibly a little too prompt. More space between courses would have been better. Overall a great meal.

    This restaurant is the oldest Italian restaurant in US. I would think it is a good choice when you come to North Beach – little Italian to try Italian food. It has lovely setting and excellent service. They have a broad selection of menu which I like. We came here after seeing show “Dear San Francisco” at club fugazi. It was walking distance. We ordered pasta, fish, rabbit and sea food dishes. They are all excellent. Everyone enjoyed our meals. Our table also shared a bottle Italian wine Sangioverse. It was excellent. We had a great time here.

    Outstanding service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere at this charmingly old-school North Beach landmark. Excellent, affordable wine recommendation and perfectly executed pastas. One of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. I was craving a martini to go with it, but it wasn’t that kind of day. There was a live band at lunchtime! They make you feel like part of the family. We’ll be back again and again.

    Classic old school Italian food served by prompt knowledgeable servers in a quiet, comfortable setting. Off the beaten path on the edge of North Beach, a 150 yr old jewel. Good drinks, great bartender. We dined early and received great table and service.

    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.
