An absolutely exceptional experience! The food, ambiance, service and drinks were all truly top notch. I can not recommend this place more highly! The waiter knew his food inside and out and had a story he could tell behind each dish. We were greeted warmly and treated like a guest in somebody’s own home, one of the best experiences we have had during a trip to the West coast.

I love this little piece of Italy, transplanted. The food is authentic and inventive all at the same time. In a beautiful space in an old brick building on Mint Plaza, away from the bustle of the city. A treat.

My family and I had a wonderful time celebrating. The staff was very courteous. I was in a boot due to surgery & they took care of me by making sure I was comfortable. Food was outstanding. A little pricey but overall we enjoyed ourselves. Lovely time had by all!

This is one of many meals we've had at 54 Mint. It's our favorite pre-theater place to go. Amazing Italian food (homemade and YUMMY pasta!), a friendly and attentive wait staff (who really know their food) and always wonderful service. If you haven't been - you will enjoy it!

The exuberant staff is wonderful - describing the specials of night with enticing detail. This food is regional Italian cuisine from Rome. Delicious plates with a homemade flavor profile. I’ve eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the service and the yummy food.

wonderful waiter - italian man with a great attitude and really helped with food selection. My husband is a vegetarian and a haeath fanatic - there were many appetisers that he enjoyed and they made him a pasta dish tailored to his tastes, the rest of us were very happy with the menu.

Finalmente un ristorante italiano che cucina italiano, non come le decine di finti italiani in giro per la città. La passione per la cucina e la simpatia del gestore completano il quadro. Consigliato come ristorante italiano di riferimento a San Francisco.

Food is always good, but overpriced. we can get same quality pasta from Italian homemade company. We come here because it’s a special occasion but we would come here a lot more often if their prices were more aligned.

It was like being back in Italy. The suppli were even better than those in Rome. The carbonara had the great texture of Italian pasta & the porchetta was tender & delicious (even if the presentation was a bit too monochromatic). We will return to try other dishes & some of the creative cocktails. Bravo!

Wish there were more vegetarian options. While my meal was delicious, it was all pasta with a wonderful cheese/white sauce. I would have liked some veggies with it.

We went here last night with our family which included three kids. We’re visiting SF and we’re looking for a good Italian restaurant near Union Square. At first we considered not staying because the menu was small and we were not sure if the kids would find something they liked. That all changed when the waiter came over and did an excellent job going over the menu. Everyone found something they liked... and the food turned out to be delicious. The plain, homemade pasta our 8-year-old had was out of this world! We had the panzella salad, gnocchi, halibut and two of their pastas + tiramisu. Delicious. Highly recommend for couples, groups or families. Wait staff was excellent as well.
