Excellent service, great food. Had a lunch special with salad and pasta for $19.99. The food tasted fresh and delicious. We had a nice table outside. We were a party of 4 and everyone was plated at the same time. Loved it!

Service and food were very good. We had three appetizers (Squid, Bruschetta, and smelt). The squid and bruschetta were very good. The smelt was ok -could have been crispier. Servers were friendly and on top of everything (changing plates before main course, we dropped a fork and she was right there with a clean fork, not bringing all food items at once). Very nice experience. Will definitely return.

I went to an event at the Old Mint so this was a perfect restaurant for a pre show Mel. The food was excellent. I ate outside and the tables were spaced well apart. The heaters made me very comfort even without my coat on.
There were two musicians playing me singing and they were quite nice, adding to the atmosphere but I was sitting too close to them so they were a little loud making it hard to have a conversation with my friend.

Lovely place! Always a good sign when the staff at an Italian restaurant speak Italian! The restaurant itself was very quiet with nice “jazz” vocals playing in the background; but, for some unknown reason, loud, bass-heavy music was being piped-in to the plaza outside where the restaurant is located. Staff didn’t know why, and had never heard it before.

Tucked away in a great courtyard this little gem is a taste of Italy in the middle of the city. It was the perfect brunch before our matinee at the theater.

Food was delicious. I had a piece of fish in tomato sauce that was just perfect! Restaurant has a very intimate setting. Near the Theatre Distict, but the street it's on is kind of sketch. Maybe not a 1st date spot for that reason, but perfect for a couple's night out or a group of friends.

One of my very favorite restaurants in SF! The Cacio E Pepe is AMAZING along with the Polipo, any dessert, and pretty much everything else. This was a staple takeout for us during pandemic and the first restaurant I returned to in person. Consistently and wonderfully delicious!

First time dining here. We chose outdoor dining due to Covid. With extra precautions in SF (vaccine required, etc.), I think we will try indoors next time. Food & drinks were creative & high quality, Roman style Italian cuisine. The margarita was outstanding!

This is a cute little place. The food reminds me very much of when I used to live in Italy. Simple recipes. Yet packed with delicious flavor. It's tucked away in a surprisingly quiet place in the middle busy Powell St. area behind the mall. The staff is excellent. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had show tickets so they were accommodating to make sure we made it out on time. I definitely look forward to coming back to try something else.

Great authentic Italian food. Service was impeccable. Would have liked to have some Sonoma or Napa bottled red wine on the wine list to choose from.
Prices were reasonable compared to other places. Ambiance was perfect.

Wonderful lunch in lovely quiet outdoor patio area. Attentive friendly service. Food was flavorful. Endive grape hazelnut salad extraordinary. Pasta sauce was delicious but might have been better suited to lighter weight pasta. Only a 10 minute walk from MOMA!

The food was not that tasty, the ticket system was messed up so all modifications got left off and had to be remade. The simplest dish was forgotten all together. Service staff seemed inexperienced and very minimal discount given for the overall poor experience. Will not be back.

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. 54 Mint Cucina Italiana is a popular place for sure with both inside & outside tables. You MUST show your proof of being vaccinated to dine here. We were seated inside. Service was very friendly, efficient & helpful with suggestions & explaining the night's special. We started with the Saltimbocca ... it was okay at best. The veal was pretty tough, the sauce was highlight of the dish. Then we shared a pasta, the buccatoni amatricana ... it was good but different from other amatricianas we've had throughout the world. The highlight of the night was the pesce special -- Salmon. It was delicious (I know because my wife let me have a bite or two). It was served with a delicate tomato sauce and capers & olives. Very tasty & highly recommend. Sadly, I had the bistecca & found it as wanting as the veal in the saltimbocca. It was cooked properly (rare) as ordered but it simply had far too much fat & gristle.

We celebrated a birthday by ordering the Panzanellla and Carpaccio for appetizers; for our pastas we ordered the Tonnarelli Caccio e Pepe and Bucatini all’Amatriciana; and for dessert we had the Pannacotta al Balsanico and Tiramisu. We thoroughly enjoyed all the delicious food! We will definitely return with friends!
