One of San Francisco’s most romantic restaurants, the Magic Flute, has a new and exciting menu reflecting California-Italian Cuisine. Located in fashionable Presidio Heights, the restaurant with sponge-painted walls and hardwood floors is reminiscent of a family-run trattoria found in a small Tuscan village. Sunlight streams in through large picture windows in the front dining room, and after dark, Florentine wrought-iron chandeliers, imported from Europe, infuse the room with soft light. The equally beautiful rear dining room looks onto a lovely, flower-filled patio with white Italian marble tables and large Italian market umbrellas that make the heated patio the ideal spot for al fresco dining. Phil LaCavera sees to it that service is personal and attentive. The staff also takes great pride in making each party and wedding a memorable occasion. You won’t find a more enchanting ambiance for your special celebration.

The Magic Flute is a lovely Presidio Heights restaurants. It is classic old San Franciscan and Phil the owner is an amazing host. The patio is absolutely amazing. The best patio dining I have found in San Francisco.

Had a delicious lunch. Even on a Friday at noon reservations are a must. We had the vegetarian scramble - generous portions and top quality ingredients. Plus impeccable service.

This is a very consistently good restaurant. Phil greets you. Staff are knowledgeable & pleasant.
Food is as described & very good.
You are not rushed & staff are attentive without hovering.
I've been going with friends for years & will continue to do so.

Remember to leave time for finding a parking space .
Highly recommend.

The service was excellent and the waiter was very attentive but not obtrusive. The food presentation was lovely and delicious. Will definitely return for another meal.

Had a really nice Saturday Brunch - very attentive service, great accommodation for a food allergy, and excellent food. The salmon benedict and Presidio scramble were very flavorful. A bit pricey, but it's Pac Heights...
