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.

Great food but unfortunately a horrible atmosphere. Too tightly packed and loud. A dirty bathroom that you must walk through kitchen to reach. Service was great too. At the bar it would be fine but the tables were uncomfortable.

Jackson Fillmore is one of my favorite spots in the city. Totally unassuming on the outside, with great charm and feel on the inside. The staff is super friendly, and if you sit at the bar, will end up chatting with you pleasantly. The food is great, and they start you with complimentary bruschetta. Highly recommend for anyone visiting the city, or locals looking for a regular, authentic Italian spot!

Jackson-Fillmore was great! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and even comped us a couple of glasses of rosé because our table wasn’t ready at the time of our reservation. It’s a busy restaurant and a great atmosphere so I get why people linger, plus it was a Friday night. This is a criminally underrated restaurant, and a must-see if you’re in the pac heights area

The food is delicious! Top notch! The service and staff also top notch! We just moved to the neighborhood and are happy to find such a great place. This is not a criticism, I understand you have limited space, just thought it may help you. The check in area is unattractive and doesn't reflect how wonderful the restaurant is....sorry! Your pricing for the quality of food is very fair....and in San Francisco not easy to find, so thank you! We will be back!

Used to frequent this place "back in the day" so was so excited to take my new-to-San Francisco daughter there on Sunday night. Place is as popular as ever apparently because the only reservation we could get was for 5:45. When we arrived, we were seated at the counter which was fine. From then on, the experience went downhill. I can only use the word "badgering" for what the waitperson subjected us to. Not a smile, not a welcome, just wanted to know what wine we wanted. And then, she would not let us just enjoy that glass of wine without constantly pushing us to order. (We were there to "dine" not merely to "eat" and she was having none of it.) A request for details on the specials was met with a perfunctory, brusque recitation of ingredients. And then more badgering. It was apparent from the moment we sat down that the goal was to turn over our table for the next customers. We finally (maybe 20 minutes after arrival?) ordered and the food was good but the experience with our waitperson was so uncomfortable that it frankly ruined our evening. Very disappointing for a place that held wonderful memories for me.

My cousin who lived in the neighborhood recommended Jackson Fillmore about a year ago, and we fell in love with its unpretentious, down home cooking with a neighborhood vibe. We lucked out the first couple times we went, randomly showing up around 5:30 pm and snagging a couple seats at the bar. Then, we went a couple more times and got shut out. Twice. Not to be denied, we tried again last week, but first went onto Open Table and made a reservation. We arrived earlier than expected, and were seated right away. The meal was wonderful, as was the service. We had the fried calamari and roasted portobello as starters, and both were delicious. The portobello is served on a bed of greens, so I had it in lieu of a salad. I love the spaghetti carbonara, and my husband is a big fan of the chicken saltimbocca. The tortellini is good, too, but I keep forgetting it is served as a gratin -- still delicious, but just a heads up since this might not be what you are expecting. We've been too stuffed to have dessert, but the selection looks wonderful. We will be back again -- hopefully, soon!

We’ve been going here for years, but not regularly. Last time I dined here was two years ago and it had been a great experience. Last week I took four friends and was embarrassed. The food was so badly prepared :/ the bathroom was filthy, and the service far below par for SF. I won’t be back until new management comes in which is needed ASAP.

This is my favorite place in SF. The food is always perfect, my group is always pleased, I get nothing but compliments, and it is easy on the wallet. Get the zucchini carpaccio, the fried calamari, the stuffed artichoke, and a couple of entrees to share. Don’t miss dessert or wine. This is one of the best restaurants and the best value in town. I come here two or three times a year. Once on every visit at least.

The food was very good and the service was
Excellent.
The downside was being seated at the table
closest to the door on a chilly night. The door was broken so it did not close
On its own. The door had big signs on it saying "please close door" but
most people ignored it. Fix the door! The restroom was terrible too. For such a successful place they can surely afford a few repairs and upgrades

Jackson Fillmore provides just the right amount of authentic rustic Italian cuisine to keep you coming back for more. Great sauces and perfectly cooked meats and poultry. Excellent selection of Italian wines, including some surprise. Very casual and open to large parties.
And it is in a great neighborhood with good public transportation.
I will return.

You cannot say "where is a great place for Italian food in the City?" without bringing up Jackson-Fillmore Trattoria. Great staff, great food, yummy wine, and something to talk about for days. Thank you for, yet again, setting the bar for a great dinner out.

We like the food here, we don't like the long wait for our table, even with a reservation made long in advance, and eventually our food which took forever to be served, even on a rather 'slow' Sunday night dinner. The manager and his assistant didn't t seem to care, never checked on our experience which was a special occasion with six family members present. Charged us for two bottles of wine corkage without even changing the glasses from white to red.
