Great spot for a team lunch of 8. We were treated to a dining room away from the main area which was great and unexpected. Food was very good and had several options for everyone to try.
Food and service was terrific. Great location. Did not rush a business meeting during our meal.
This is a “go to” restaurant for me. Unfortunately, the steak was over cooked and the salad dressing was very tart.
What a fun vibe at Americano Restaurant; the service was great and the food was delicious. I had the king salmon and it was cooked perfectly.
Highlight was a delicious squid salad.
Nothing is ever truly perfect, but the food, service and ambiance at the Americano comes very close. The wait staff was professional, friendly and patient (some of us were 20 minutes late), made good recommendations and dealt with our mercurial food decision changes. The food: we grazed (and very well, thank you!) on a number of shared plates: deviled eggs with a sprig of prosciutto, Feta Piquillo Dip, pizzas, meatballs, squid with couscous, summer melon (perfectly ripe) and more. And then desserts: over-the-top deliciousness. Plates quietly arrived and disappeared, to be replaced by others, a testament to the service. Be sure to try the "frose". A light, airy summer cocktail!
Food was good but took an hour before we were able serve.
Great location for views of SF Bay; friendly and accommodating staff; food is delicious but portion size a bit large; flour less chocolate cake is to die for.
I hadn't been to Americano in more than 2 years. In that time it has gone from an elegant restaurant to a tourist pizza joint. The tomato and burrata salad was lovely but the main courses were fair at best and fairly expensive.
Food too salty, waiter forgot to bring a dish, pricey for poor quality and poor service!
Very limited menu, but quality was high. The deviled eggs were incredible. The wine was very good. And the service was incredible. The flavor of the main dishes was very good with very fresh ingredients. The quantity was less than I was expecting. I didn’t expect truck driver portion sizes, but the description of the item suggested that there was more to the dish than it contained. The limited menu would leave some dinners wanting
Restaurant did not provide request for a view and gave us table in back room
The menu was pretty limited. We asked for salads because there was none on the menu. I had a green salad that was bitter and tasteless. My husband had the Caesar which was ok. The pizza was thin and pretty good. The ambience is great but the food only ok. Oh and the wine price list is way over the top expensive over three times the cost of the same bottle at a store. Most restaurants charge double.
Average food, limited menus, novice service
Price to quality ratio out of line
Great spot for work lunches, especially if the company is paying.
Great lunch express options. Fast, quality, and good!
I had a reservation and showed up early to get our table. I was seated by the hostess and sat there for 30+ minutes before anyone ever came over to take our order. My friend had to get up and go ask the hostess to send a waiter - even though a bunch of them walked past us and we tried to make eye contact and wave them down. Finally, 45 minutes after being seated we were able to put in our order of both food and drinks. No one ever came over to check in and see if we liked our drinks (or wanted a second one) and if we liked our food or wanted to order additional items. Truly TERRIBLE customer service even though it was very expensive. Good luck getting repeat customers.
Went for Easter brunch, it was mediocre. Manager or like person brought the coffee to the table, spilled it, no apology or attempt to even clean it up. The food was mediocre, service minus the manager was good and the menu was very limited. Price is too much for the quality. If you are going to order anything go either blueberry pancakes or avocado toast. Also note they hit you with 20% grat.
I can say, if you come here after work for happy hour in the summer the place is bomb!
Best pizza in SF. LOUD bar crowd after work. Would like to see a bigger red wine list.

Generally a typical fancy hotel restaurant. Very stylish, some typically Bay Area quirky art (pictured of people on the ceiling). Prices are high — $20+ for pizza and pasta dishes, upwards for mains. Wine glasses between $12-17.
But food was surprisingly tasty. Crust on flavorful pizza was delightfully light and chewy. Noodles, yes, the noodles themselves were perfectly prepared and delicious, and so was the sauce. Dessert very nice.
Best of all though was the wine. I do mind paying near bottle prices for glasses but less so when the flavor of each of our wines was characteristic yet imaginative. A joy to the palate. I will definitely visit again. Great service.
Colleague had a big in her food.
Went for a birthday weekend getaway and heard about a great patio for dining so decided to make a reservation. Didn’t need one for a Sunday evening as they didn’t serve in the dining room. The food was delicious but very sparse. Ordered a pizza and bolognese dish that combined we thought could be shareable but wasn’t. In terms of overall value, I wouldn’t recommend going there exclusively for the food - there are a lot of competitors who offer more at similar price point but probably a good spot for cocktails after work hours for a local.
Staff seemed off that day. Party of 10. One of our meals was clearly forgotten. But typically love having work lunches here. Old Fashioned’s with grilled cheese.
We had a lunch meeting at it was right in the middle of the heart of San Francisco. The parking access was very easy to find. The process with the reservation was very easy on OpenTable. I was very pleased with the interior design and the set up was very clean. The server was very knowledgable of the menu and very helpful. The cook did an amazing job with each meal that it was very well presented and indeed great taste. I was very pleased with the experience and would recommend this location for any other business dining.
Our meal at Americano was very good. We had a really good thin crust pizza and delicious salads. The service was excellent and they have a nice wine list. The bar area is noisy but quieter in the dining area so we could have a conversation. It looks like a nice place to grab a drink after work. Bonus was valet parking so we did not have to drive around forever looking for a parking spot.
Great breakfast spot for a large group. Menu had something for everyone. Table was comfortable with a fantastic Bay Bridge view. Service was on point! Highly recommend.
It was nice I liked it and your staff were great.
Excellent experience...service and food. Highly recommend.
Service was great. Food was good. The only negative was that we were there for dinner and being dark outside, we couldn’t see anything. I was hoping to see the bridge and the water. Probably would have if it would have been over lunch.
Fabulous bartender Adam ! Great service , food & cocktails.
Friendly, good service, delicious, but short menu for lunch.
Good but nothing impressive. The food was decent but the falcon was average
Excellent service, lovely space, delicious and promptly served food. It’s such a great place!
Indifferent maitre'd and waitstaff. Had to find my own table as maitre'd was busy socializing with kitchen.
Wanted a quiet corner table for business meeting; they lied and said it was reserved...remained EMPTY during my entire breakfast meeting. Waited forever for waiter to acknowledge me for water and drinks/menu...had to go up to maitre'd to ask for service.
Made a reservation 2 days before a business lunch only to get there and discover that they were closed for renovations....
The bartenders provide excellent service for drinks, wine, and food. The pizzas here are some of the best this side of the Mississippi. Italian sausage is good with a little spiciness. The cheese burger is very generous in size with good flavor and plenty of juicy tenderness, bun is house made. French fries are fresh and crispy.
Excellent Thanksgiving dinner!
This has been my go to for offsite meetings and meals. It is casual but nice, busy but not too loud, and has options for most dietary requirements.
Very nice, something for everyone except for the noise (which was a birthday celebration (and they all wanted to become hearing impaired)). Food was exceptional (dessert was good, didn't rise to level of mains or apps).
