Jackson Fillmore Trattoria is a local favorite for a casual, neighborhood meal. Jack has been cooking up great Roman and Southern Italian food at Jackson Fillmore since 1985. We have a small dining room to accomodate reservations for parties of 3 or more and a dining counter for parties of 2 or those who just drop by. Our wine list is primarily Italian, representing all of the great regions in Italy. Our Bombolotti Sugo de Carne, Carpaccio di Zucchini and Tiramisu are legendary. Check out our website to view samples of the menu and wine list, or for more information about us.

    Amazing pasta! They even brought us bruschetta even though it wasn’t on the menu. Very busy so make sure you get a reservation, even for a bar seat.

    Our most favorite neighborhood restaurant. Nicest staff and absolutely delicious Italian salads, pastas, fish and meats. Yummy and fun. My husband and I like to sit at the bar and watch all the activity. Our son has declared their Carbonara “the very best” he’s ever had.

    I've been going here for years. It's one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. I love that it's not fancy but the food is great. Since covid, they've slipped a bit. The bruchetta was burned, small, and the tomatoes were skimpy. The salad carpaccio was okay, but the zucchini was under-cooked - not warm, possibly because the pieces were larger than they used to be. Sauce was legend as always.

    I have been coming to Jackson Fillmore for 35 years. I have never had a bad meal there. This was my first visit since 2019 and I have to say it’s not as good as it used to be but it’s still terrific. They always start you out with bruschetta. They’ve changed the bread and it was tasteless and cold. Everything else was delicious. Fish in spicy sauce, gnocchi with pesto and zabaglione for dessert. Yum!!

    Used to be good but when the best thing they serve you is the bruschetta … you are in trouble. Then the service makes you move because they are disorganized. Even the wine tasted like the bottle had been open for a few days before being served. Save your time and money and either go elsewhere or stay home.

    Love JF and hadn’t been in a while so this was a treat. The zucchini carpaccio is a must have. Had the Pollo alla Siciliana with just chicken breast (vs half chicken) and it was delicious! Two of us had Affogato for dessert and one had Zabaglione. All super tasty! We also had a lovely red Montepulciano di Abruzzo. Fabulous service even tho it was super busy.

    Friendly neighborhood dining with staff that has been there forever. No one comes up and says: "my name is Joey, i'll be you server" So sick of that. Instead, they actually know you and you know them.

    Qualiity of the food is not what it once was. I haven’t been here for about years and it was always a favorite spot with real authentic Italian food. Our meal was ok but not great like it was in the past. I will try again in hopes it was just an off night.

    My favorite restaurant in the city for more than 25 years. Love the tortellini el forno, the bruschetta, the zabaglione. Came most recently for my birthday with 4 friends who’d never been, and everyone loved the food and the service.

    At the end of the meal my son said it was an expensive version of Olive Garden...without the breadsticks. Expensive and food was mediocre. We wouldn't go back and my 25 year old said he gets to pick the SF restaurants. He has a refined palate as well. We were disappointment overall. The zucchini carpaccio was very good. My husband said he could make a better pasta dish at home. So we were all underwhelmed.

    Pros: location, generosity, and easy service. Cons: food, lack of authenticity overall, and especially price. Not worth the price or worth being placed on the “best place” list of anything. Mediocre at best

    Jackson Fillmore has lost its Trattoria ambience… the counter seating requires looking into empty food cases on the bar, with a disheveled look behind the bar space. Having just returned from Italy, there is so much much vibe missing in this old gem. The food was pretty good but did not reflect the menu online, and the wine prices did not either! Updates required all around. We’ve been dining there since the early 90s and I hope the place transforms into the funky charm of true trattorias. A note: the wait staff was great.
