Florio offers a variety of trattoria & bistro classics; a "greatest hits" of rustic cafe food- including Steak Frites and pan-roasted heirloom Chicken.
We feature a market-to-table local fish offering daily (as available).
Simple dishes such as Seafood Stew and house-made seasonal Pasta round out the comforting menu.
Veal, Pork & Ricotta meatballs are an everyday favorite with our regulars!

The menu changes daily to make the most of local, seasonal, organic meat, fish, and produce.
A small but savvy wine list of exceptional Napa producers, Italian specialties, and French vintners competes at the amiable bar with an admirable selection of pastis, select eau de vie and traditional spirits from around the world.

Florio is such a warm and inviting place to meet with friends. The trattoria style of the interior makes it a fun place to be. All of the food was delicious- the crudo, the salads, the pasta, the fish and the meats were all outstanding as we sampled food from each others’ orders. There is definitely something delicious for everyone.

There is so much to like about Florio, but none of it involves the food. The personnel are very nice. The decor and ambience are wonderful. The food as it appears on the menu sounds so good, but the execution and ingredients are subpar. Caprese salad, for example, doesn't have truly fresh mozzarella. The steaks are cheap cuts. Many corners are cut. If we could blame it on Covid I would, but the same problem existed before Covid. We returned on the hope that something might have changed for the better, but we were not rewarded. We know restaurants are struggling to survive and we want to help them, but until and unless this restaurant can see fit to use higher quality ingredients, we cannot return.

After a year and a half, it was a joy to return to Florio. It was busy and energetic. The food was really extra good. The Conchinita and the Rigatoni were both outstanding. And don't forget the Olive Oil Cake for dessert. All paired well with a fine Chianti.
Highly recommended.

Our meal at Florio was good and staff was pleasant. We came back to this spot for our anniversary after our initial visit many years back and found it completely unchanged. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, but depending on what you’re looking for, it’s definitely an old-school kind of place (if not a bit dated) in regards to the menu and presentation. I regretted not getting the steak frites; the cacio e pepe was a tad bland, but the squid ink pasta and broccolini were both solid. If you are still a bit skittish of crowded places after being in isolation for so long, keep in mind that restaurants in San Francisco are now fully open, and that there are no restrictions on capacity. By the time we finished our dinner, the place was absolutely packed, and there isn’t much room between tables. They do have outdoor seating in their parklet but summer evenings are quite cold in SF so dress accordingly.

Not a whole lot to recommend here. Standard bistro fare with small portions, the charcuterie and cheese board was tiny, the steaks were made correctly and according to the diners' tastes, decent fries and grilled bread, quaffable wines. It's not an especially good value, but a cozy place to dine with friends.

Cute spot. Paid $20 for pasta that was not handmade. For that price point it really should have been fresh pasta.

I have missed Florio and am happy to see that they survived the pandemic. The menu has changed and seems more world influenced with Mexican and Italian added to the menu. The food is still good and I will be back for more.

Our waiter Juan was awesome. Without him it would have been a pretty lousy experience. Manager and hostess were completely void of personality, hospitality, or even general politeness. Food was mediocre and overpriced. Again, thank you Juan for saving the evening.

The food was surprisingly delicious! We had the burrata, brown butter fish, and bucatini. It was a little chilly out so we didn't stay as long as we would have for drinks after dinner. Will definitely be back :)
