Haven't been there in years but was underwhelmed and found it noisy and quite ordinary.
Good for everyday, not so good for special occasions due to noise level.
Slow server when we were done with service. Felt like an ignored school kid who was raising their hand.
We were very disappointed. Food wasn’t very special at all. We were expecting way more. We have been dining at some very good spots and this place did not stand out at all. There was nothing to ‘aww’ about. So many better places to spend our money. We are from out of the country and we’re on s foodie vacation.
They brought the food out quickly and were very accommodating when I asked to be seated at a table instead of at the bar despite them being packed for lunch. Excellent service!
This was our third evening at Barbacco. Once again, each dish was delicious, and our service was warm, friendly and informative. Great wine, great food, casual ambiance, always a great evening at Barbacco!
We've been going to this restaurant since its inception, and it's consistently very good. We enjoy the charcuterie/salumi, the pasta, Polpette/pork meatballs. Our server introduced us to a recent red wine addition to the menu, Torraccia Gattinara (Nebbiolo), of which we thoroughly enjoyed. However, we also ordered a green salad with beets (to share) but it was so small (we each got about 4-5 little leaves) that one of us immediately remarked about it. As a result our server was kind enough to take it off our bill. Overall, a very pleasant experience, and we'll return.
Great food, great value, poor service from waiter. Would return without question, but hope to get a different waiter.
Excellent food, attentive but not intrusive service; I was lucky enough to sit at the bar and watch the pastry chef at work, then enjoy her craft. I'd go again in a minute; top of my list for my next trip to San Francisco.
Gracious service, serious Italian food, and the best value adjoining costly neighbors (Michael Minna, Tadich Grill, Perbacco). Two blocks from Loew’s Regency Hotel (The Mandarin, updated). Menu omissions: non-alcoholic beer, tiramisu.
