Great meal and the service was excellent. Authentic Italian food in a cozy room. I’m looking forward to going back.
We had a delightful time having dinner at this restaurant. The neighborhood is lovely, but hard to park in. We parked on Polk street and walked up one block. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco to begin our dining experience.
We started with appetizers, then onto a shared pasta dish. Our main course was sea bass and rack of lamb.
Both were cooked to perfection and very tasty. We were comfortable with the amount of food that we ordered, but did not have room for dessert.
I thought it was going to be something more special. I've been to other Italian cute restaurants near the area (Russian/Nob Hill) and this was just meh! even though the food was very good, the ambiance and the service were just fine. When I made my reservation, I wrote a note saying that it was our anniversary but either they didn't read it or didn't care. In any case, my wife and I walked out of the place just disappointed.
I have been there a number of times with family since my daughter has lived nearly by for years. I have recommended it to many, but when I brought my granddaughter and her friend and her grandmother, the service was poor, the table was average (by the door so it was drafty) and we were not given any special treatment. The couple next to us was gushed over, but we were kind of left alone. I was sorry because I had suggested your restaurant and it was a disappointment to me.
Food very salty
Too bad for the neighborhood
Amazing pasta! It's really good. I ordered the gnocchi, lasagna and also the pasta with prosciutto. Highly recommended!
Love the tiramisu also. Will definitely have dinner here again.
The bucatini can't be missed. But really like everything on the menu. Great little neighborhood spot offnthe beaten path.
Always Amazing. Great Food, Great Staff. Solid!
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with Italian comfort food, served by a gracious staff under the watchful eye of a long standing owner. Very good value and inviting atmosphere. Take uber or walk...its hard to park.
Wild salmon was really wild silver salmon... other restaurants list their salmon as wild and then when you ask, they say it’s farm raised.
The baked portobello mushroom small plate was excellent.
The bread was good.
The wine was good.
Good choices of food. Service is excellent.
Very cozy atmosphere.
Amarena is always good, but this past weekend it was exceptional, even though it was a full house. The fish pasta dish was outstanding.
Love this place. I have been here several times with friends family and clients and the owner is always so gracious to check in on us in his very lovely Italian Charming way. Food is always great as well.
Our meal was truly delightful, excellently prepared and very tasteful on this our second time there and we will be back again.
The food is delicious, and definitely my favorite Italian Restaurant in San Francisco. Great place for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. The butternut squash ravioli is the best I've ever had! The ambiance reminds me of being in Europe. Will go there again!
