The smell of the bathroom when I entered the door never left my nasal passsge. The bruschetta tasted like tomato paste. And the wine glasses were dirty. I expected more in San Francisco in a business district.
the best italian food in san francisco. bar none. one of the best sf restaurants overall.
One of our favorite places to eat in SF. Our party had swordfish, salmon and ravioli, everything was delicious! The service is impeccable.
I took my best client to Cafe Tiramisu for Christmas lunch. There were 12 of us but we could have seated 17. The restaurant is charmingly authentic northern Tuscany and the food is wonderful. The oysters had just come 10 minutes before us and the grilled octopus is a must have. Filet of sole pan fried, Golden Brown with crispy skin served with a Buerre BLANC sauce. Desserts were fabulous, every one. Tony himself waited our table and kept the Prosecco and Pinot flowing. It was intimate enough that we could talk comfortably. Definitely recommend this restaurant and if you haven’t been to Beldon Place you are in for a treat.
Had dinner here on a very busy Saturday night before Christmas. The place was jammed with large groups which made it very noisy but we got a nice table in a relatively quiet corner so that worked out well. The food here is always creative and excellent. I had pan seared halibut on a bed of short rib risotto - not a combo I would expect or seek out but it worked very well. Everyone’s food in my group of three was top notch, including the cinnamon and almond biscotti we shared for dessert. My one complaint is that their wine list carries only very expensive selections - I saw only three bottles priced under $100. Service was unexpectedly good Saturday given the size of the crowd and has been efficient and attentive every time I’ve been there. I always recommend Cafe Tiramisu to out of town visitors looking for really good Italian food outside of the North Beach hustle and bustle.
We love this restaurant. We made 5 reservations in the city and ended up with this one. We're very glad we did because the food was delicious, authentic Italian food. We came here for our son birthday with friends and family. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We will come back to this restaurant for sure. Service also was great. The food came out quickly for a party of 20.
We ate at Cafe Tiramisu once before. At that time, they were short on wait staff and the service was slow. We decided to give them another try and again, they were short on wait staff. The service was incredibly slow and we didn’t get all the items that were ordered. Never did a manager or owner come over to apologize or say anything about our slow service. I asked our waiter if there was an owner or manager there and he pointed to a man in a vest and said he’s the owner. As we left I spoke to him and he denied that he was the owner and said he was short on staff and there wasn’t anything he could do. He acted like he really didn’t care. Needless to say, we will not be going back. We suggested the restaurant to our friends and we were extremely embarrassed. The food is good, but they appear to have recurring issues with staffing and service.
The sppetizers were great. Soup of the day was delicious and the pasta was authentic. If you want Italian like you’re in Italy (and we have been there), this is the place to go.
Anniversary dinner! Excellent food service and experience!
It had been a couple of years since I'd been to this restaurant. There were only 3 tables occupied at 6:00 despite the nice weather. The food was okay nothing special for the prices. There are too many good Italian restaurants in the city to return to this one.
