Overall good experience.

Not a fan of their Bucatini though… it wasn’t al-Dante, it was very hard… expect better from a restaurant


Salad, pizza and wine - all our waiter’s recommendations were great!!

We had previously dined at A16 and felt it was delicious. However this time it was bad. Sorry. Food was not up to standard. Pasta too heavily spicy and not advertised that way
Pizza soggy.

A16 used to be in the regular rotation, we’re walking-distance locals who’ve dined here more times that we can count for many years. Service and food have consistently gone downhill (beginning before covid), and our dinner last night will be the last time we visit for awhile. Oddly bland dishes, forgotten ingredients, sloppy and sporadic service, and included gratuity made for a disappointing anniversary dinner.

I really enjoyed the food here - and excellent ambience - very lively. The only thing to note is that the service was less personal and attentive, which is likely because staff pool tips.

It was a fun environment, but the food was mediocre especially for the price. I'm glad I went once, but probably would not go back again given the other restaurants in the area.

I have been meaning to try A16 for a while and my mom came into town for a quick visit, it was the perfect excuse to finally make a reservation. They were pretty busy, but both food and service were great. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Cannot wait to go again!

Always good Italian food and wines are superb, almost all Italian . Pricy but good selection.

Of course like many restaurants we were seated in one of the least desirable table and busiest areas where are the servers get their orders. So we asked to be moved which they kindly allowed .

Wonderful experience at A16SF! We celebrated our wedding anniversary at A16, our first dining out experience in awhile, and it exceeded our expectations, which were really high to start. Delicious food -- shishito peppers, arugula salad with stone fruit, burrata -- THE BEST, maccaronara (pizza crust used to sop every last bit), and pepperoni pizza. Each course perfectly paired with different wines thanks to the skills and knowledge of Shelley -- frizzante, whites and reds. Ended the meal with a chocolate budino tart and a corn pannecotta -- SO good! Very attentive service, thoughtful options to eat outdoors (sidewalk or out in the solarium with the roof off and lots of fresh air) or indoors safely. Ordered a case of wine from the A16 wine club to pick up later in the week. (You can join the club to get 3 curated wines each month with their histories, backgrounds, and recs for pairings.) Without a doubt, continues to be one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area. Saluti!

I have loved this restaurant for years
One of the few times the food was sub par and took forever to be served
The waitress was great
The kitchen thumbs down
I’ll be back based on past history- but if it happens again I will sadly not return

I have been coming to A16 for years. I was excited for my first dining experience back to A16 since the pandemic. Though it was enjoyable, overall, the food didn't seem as good (they changes the salsiccia pizza and the pastas tasted bland while the appetizers were also pretty bland) the service was not as strong (we got absolutely the wrong wine bottle recommendation after asking for a fruit-forward medium bodied wine, the result was an earthy tannin heavy organic wine) and the general vibe didn't feel as lovely.

My general advice is don't go for the earlier seating (5:45pm) as the lights were also super bright making it feel like a diner over a nice Italian dinner. They dimmed them as we were leaving so the ambiance was better then.

Gnocchi was about the worst I have eaten. Texture was off and the lemon was over powering. Waiter was doing his best but perhaps suggest some cracked pepper on the cheese appetizer we ordered. The pasta dish that was ordered was on point. The chocolate tart usually has a little olive oil but that was missing also. Totally understand restaurants are trying to get back on track due to the pandemic.

We were delighted to get a last minute reservation, a good table and the food was delicious. The zucchini salad was original and refreshing. The black ink squid pasta was simple and yummy with lemon and garlic and not too much spice.

We went to A16, a favorite restaurant of ours for years, to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was Sunday night at 7:00. They were sold out of the chicken, the steak, and two of the pasta dishes. They were also out of the burratta. This left a very limited menu.

I asked if it was possible for the kitchen to make a pasta dish out of the toppings on the pomodoro pizza and I was told it was not possible.

A very unsatisfying experience.

Great food and wine; fish, however, was slightly overcooked. Good wine recommendations by server--he knos the extensive Italian list and is passionate about the food and wine. Patio chairs uncomfortable and table had a disconerting tilt.

Sadly a poor experience! The restaurant was loud (even for marina) and I couldn’t even hear my wife. The server was horrific and stopped by once and also forgot our requests around bread/water. The food was a solid 7.5 but not worth the average $27 price point. I feel this spot fell victim to a management change that couldn’t deliver the expectations of old.
