This is one of the best, truly traditional Italian restaurants in the City. Located in the amazing Fell St area, it’s a small gem in a big city. The owners are from old Italy and great everyone like their premiere guests. The food quality and portion is hard to beat!
Had a genuinely lovely time here on Valentine's Day. Attentive service, delicious Italian comfort food, and hefty portions all made it a very pleasant dining experience.
Amazing food for an awesome price! We will be back!
Delicious food and great service. Despite sitting outside in the cold due to COVID restrictions, we had such a lovely time enjoying a very homey Italian meal over a bottle of wine. We felt immediately welcomed as soon as we arrived and very-well attended to. We will definitely be back!
Il Borgo is a wonderful, old school, San Franciscan neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is solidly good. Support this local treasurer.
I love this place and come back often. Simple straight forward delicious Italian food and friendly staff in a small cozy place with charming ambiance at reasonable pricing.
Love this place
Been coming here for 15 years
Thank you Il Borgo
Super responsive to dietary restrictions- charming couple and a charming building
Our hostess/waitress simply made the evening one of the most enjoyable dinners I have had in San Francisco. The food was very tasty and extremely well priced. Overall 10/10... we will be returning soon!
Really enjoyed first visit and will be back. The service was friendly and personal. The food was delicious and well recieved by all 6 people. The price point was refreshingly low. Penne, lasagnette, housemade fettuccine (fantastic), and spaghetti were fresh and flavorful. Wines were delicious. Nice neighborhood gem we don't wanna lose. Worth a visit.
Great food, nice ambiance and fantastic service - what more could you ask for?!
Very Italian, very tasty, very affordable. Multiple antipasti, lots of vino rosso, and to each his/her pasta, and we were out the door for only $40 per person.
Food is amazing - service is very slow. Will be coming back, just don't be in a rush.
Unpretentious, excellent food, great value. This is a place I got to frequently before seeing a concert or opera.
I have been go to Il Borgo for years. Great Italian food, GF as well. Don't miss it
Wonderful restaurant with great ambiance, service and food. A perfect place if you are seeing a show near by.
Il Borgo is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The food and service are always excellent.
Food made me and my boyfriend so sick. Do not get the carbonara
Great neighborhood gem with authentic pastas and friendly, professional service. Casual, good value. Not trendy or likely to be popular with those who want a vibrant bar scene. Just good food at a good price.
The food was terrible. My dish looked and tasted bland.
Wonderful food, quaint hole in the wall restaurant. Some of the best Italian food I have had the pleasure to eat. Super reasonable prices. Wonderful service. Certainly not fancy dancy - ambiance is more the local Mom & Pop restaurant. Try it, you'll like it ❣️
Meh. Dull wine list. Only vaguely clean. Food passable.
Homey, almost homely place which has its' charms after all the sleek places. Family owned and served-sometimes underserved. Il Borgo salad is good-my Lobster ravioli was Meh! could have been anything inside, no lobster taste. Generally pedestrian food. However the homemade gelato was superb, pour espresso over it and the best affogato I've had in SF. So salad main gelato and tip will run you $35. You judge whether that's good for mediocre Italian.
Great spot for great Italiano essenziale!
Kind of a dingy interior - needs some freshening, but the staff are friendly and, for the prices - decent food.
We had a waiter. whose first day it was; he handled it well. Nice and personable, and the food
was very good. I'd go back.
Good Italian fare and close to Davies and Opera House
This gem of a restaurant has been here for 22 years serving the Hayes Valley great Italian specialities. After a great meal, the homemade Gelato is fantastic.
Excellent homemade Italian food! Every dish tasted authentic and wonderful. This is a very casual place, great for small families and friends.
Good food and good service
I chose this restaurant because it is within walking distance to SF Symphony Hall, and the prices are reasonable. It looks somewhat humble from the outside, but it is nice inside, with lots of windows, and it is located on a corner. It has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant.
The food was great, tasty bread, fresh salad ingredients, and pasta made there. The vegetarian lasagna and gnocchi were very good.
There is a small wait staff, about two people who looked like a father and daughter, and a friendly busser. They handled the room efficiently, with only a small delay in bringing the check.
We parked on the street a couple of blocks away. I am not aware of a parking garage nearby, but there are several down near to Vann Ness Avenue. We will eat there again.
Warm and cozy. Easy walk to Symphony , ballet, or SF Jazz center. My only regret was eating all my pasta so I had no room for gelato.
Always consistently good - great value - feels like home !!
What a gem
Food was delicous and service was very hospitable! We'll go back.
Came here before the ballet with my daughter and some friends. Every dish was delicious, but the lasagna rolls (Lasagnetta) were amazing!
The staff set up a table for 10 in the midst of an intimate dining room, resulting in cacophony and near physical discomfort. The food was less than mediocre. The spaghetti Carbonara was dry and almost unable to be eaten. The veal saltimbocco was grizzly and was difficult to cut and to eat
Have eaten here many times and always enjoy the food. A little slice of Italy.
To start with my fork was not washed and had food caked on it. Service was fairly good. Salad was interesting with red cabbage. Ravioli was delicious.
The food was good but it seemed the Restuarant got overwhelmed when all of the tables were occupied. I would return though.
