Welcome to M'tucci's! A locally owned business that loves making dishes from scratch using high quality products. We make our own sourdough bread, pasta, mozzarella cheese and more! Located in Historic Nob Hill, we have an incredible view of route 66 and a beautiful patio. We also work hard to have an amazing beverage program including hand crafted cocktails, 14 beers on draft and a large wine selection. We tend to go on a wait during high traffic hours so reservations are highly recommended.

    Our second visit when key items were left out the previously phenomenal sausage and kale soup. And so much kale it was more like kale soup. We saw other bowls going by heaped over the top with even more raw kale! Also had one of the seafood and pasta entrees that was previously over the top perfect and raved about afterwards arrive missing the seafood items and otherwise lacking any sort of balance or finesse. A long overdue cocktail arrived as we were halfway through the entrees. yes, we got some price concessions. We’d have paid more to have what we ordered arrive as offered. It’s getting harder to rave about Mtucci’s Roma. Hoping the great chef ( whoever that was) shows back up cause there’s a lot less skill and almost no consistency coming out of the kitchen lately.

    I went to m’Tuccis Bar Roma on a busy Friday night with my wife and a friend. We had reservations, mandatory, and were seated within 5 to 10 minutes of the reservation time. We ordered drinks and calamari fritti. The calamari and accompanying dipping sauces were excellent . Our server, Cheyenne, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Entrees were prepared as described and very tasty. I have been to the restaurant on several occasions and will not hesitate to return.

    My partner and I had heard great things about M’tucci’s and we were not disappointed. The space was unrecognizable from the original Kelly’s restaurant. Intriguing use of small spaces. The food was outstanding, our waitress was excellent. The noise level was the only problem. I will definitely be returning.

    Cool old school building from back in the day in Central, probably an old gas station. Great food, nice ambiance, not too expensive and good service. Definitely give it a try when you have the opportunity.

    had heard a few months ago that the food was not very good at this location so we ended up choosing another restaurant to go to, but recently had heard that the food was much better. We made reservations at the restaurant and the speakeasy. The drinks and food at both were awesome, our waiter was great. Will definitely be back!

    This is a beautifully designed space. I love that it is based on an aesthetic that is part of it’s theme. It is A luxurious, high end designed space. There are multiple dining areas which make your experience feel more intimate.. It was busy when we arrived- 5:30 on a Friday, but with a reservation we waited maybe 5 mins to be seated. We were greeted fairly quickly. And our server was very friendly. We ordered drinks and the calamari appetizer.We received that before our drinks. Next we split a large salad portion. The Insalata Roma. It was fine- missing the tomatoes, which would have helped it. We finally got our cocktails- which were very well made. My friend ordered a Flatbread and I had the Italian sausage soup as an entree. Both were very tasty. I managed to get a glass of wine w/ my soup, but only because I ordered it w/ the salad course. My friend ordered a 2nd cocktail when they checked on us w/ dinner and we ended up having to cancel the order ( after waiting more than 15 mins for it to arrive) and ask for the check ( which had to then be corrected to take off the drink) but we had to leave to get to a theatre event. And we had 1 1/2 hrs at the restaurant. Overall, I really like Bar Roma.. the atmosphere and food and service is very good. I don’t know if they were short staffed in the bar, but it did seem like orders from there were having more trouble arriving than food orders. Just don’t go when you are rushed for time… Enjoy a leisurely Dining experience feeling like you’re in a little corner of Rome.

    Food was delicious but service was slow. Took waiter too long to take our order. We arrived at 5pm and barely got our food by 6pm, making a 6:30 pm departure for a 7pm basketball game very tight. Also, our initial bill showed 2 glasses of wine that we had NOT ordered. So bill had ymto be redone. Glad we caught this error.

    We’ve been there four times previously when very busy and the food was outstanding. This last visit on a Tuesday for lunch was almost ok. The kale and sausage soup that had been one of the best soups / top 3 we’ve ever had was missing a multiple ingredients and had none of the depth as before. The eggplant parmigiana had only partially cooked medallions although the pasta and sauce was outstanding. Service from Nadia was very slow and forgetful. We’ll go back cause when everything clicks, it’s amazing.

    Overall we really enjoyed our experience at Bar Roma. The atmosphere was nice but it was very busy. Service was a bit lacking at first but got better as we progressed through the meal. Eggplant Parmesan was exceptional! I had the steak option which wasn't as good. The "Pichana" cut was not one that I would get again and the steak needed seasoning. Other than that appetizers and dessert were delicious. Drinks were also very good. We will be back but I will stick to a traditional Italian dish next time. One other tid bit that I would share is that the prices are great compared to what I am used to seeing at a similar place!

    All of the food was delicious, the service was excellent and the restaurant is very nicely laid out and decorated. The only downside was that it was very noisy, which made talking to each other a bit of a challenge. I will definitely go back, but I might specifically request a booth the next time.

    Wonderful experience at M’tuccis. This was our first time and wish we had gone sooner. The place is a lot larger than I thought and the ambiance is very nice. We started with wine and the fried Brie. The serving is definitely for two people unless they’re basing the portion size on the table when ordered, not sure. Next we ordered the pork belly and duck gnocchi. The food was a delicious but we’re surprised by the small portion sizes. Not that it was a major issue we still enjoyed our food. Lastly, we had dessert and espresso after our meal and both were very good. We will be back for sure.

    Neither my, nor my partner’s meal arrived at the table HOT. Both were just lukewarm. My partner ordered gnocchi Patate and the vegetables were not nearly done enough. Our alcoholic beverages did not arrive at the table until we requested them when the entrée was delivered. Overall, the ambience was so loud, it’s doubtful we’ll go back.

    The setting is attractive and wonderful re-use of a 1939 Ford Dealership and Gas Station. This is not the 1st time this meeting has been used as a restaurant, but this particular re-use is very attractive and well done. The menu presents multiple options for diners of almost all persuasions, but is not overly extensive -- in short a well thought out menu that allows for good selection but also ensures a kitchen that is not tasked with preparing a vast array of food items. The food is clearly prepared after the order is placed -- i.e., no entree arrived before its. All parties enjoyed the dishes they ordered -- the general comment was "it is very good," "perfecto," etc. There is a quality wine list -- both by the glass and the bottle. There is full and creative cocktail list. Food presentation and service was very good, attentive but not too attentive. For a Friday evening, it was a very active dining experience. The noise level was high but not overwhelming. There is a good mix of patrons -- tending toward the younger set, but a significant representation of middle to upper age patrons. It is not a family with young children setting or experience. Clearly an adult setting -- at least for a weekend dinner night. There is outdoor seating which might accommodate a more family-friendly environment. However, on the evening of the visit, it was on the cool side and only one table was eating outside -- there were no outdoor heaters. Parking in the area is a challenge, but doable if the driver is patient and lets all the other party members out while circling to find an open space. The restaurant is situated in an established mixed restaurant/bar/entertainment/residential area that has many attractions for casually enjoying the area before or after dining. Of the M'tucci's restaurant tried so far, this is clearly the best.

    Excellent food, as always. Eager service, but needs a little training on the fine points, which I’m sure will happen, as management takes special care to train staff. I figure they have some trouble hiring, like every other restaurant business, and new kids will get trained. Service was good, but our waitress missed some finer points, and was just a bit too quick.
