Awesome waiter. He made the whole experience worthwhile!
Though lunch hour was busy, staff was attentive and friendly. The winter salad was uplifting and the veal/pork ragu was soft and comforting.
First time to dine here and it exceeded expectations...quality of the food, excellent; service...extremely attentive without hovering or annoying (waited until all diners had finished before busing individual plates and settings); prices were more than reasonable for such a high quality and in San Fran...an overall exceptional value - you most definitely will not be disappointed at Perbacco.
I shared that I had a business lunch in the area and asked a friend for a recommendation. My friend said, “well, if it’s important, you’ll go to Perbacco.” He was right. In fact, it was so ideal I’m compelled to write.
The food was amazing and, in my few OpenTable reviews, I’ve commented on how fantastic the food had been first. This time however - and we enjoyed an amazing meal - I have to share how the wait staff were elemental in our experience.
We were helped by Heather and frankly, she was NOTICEABLY professional and made the business lunch relaxing. Her knowledge, timing, awareness, presence... she’s a pro. Thank you, Heather. Well done!!!
Staff and food were both exceptional.
I just want to acknowledge and share my Perbacco experience. I’ll be back.
Real Italian food. Even more: real food from Piedmont.
I was born and raised in Piedmont and their Vitello Tonnato, Tajarin and Nebbiolo made me feel at home.
True authentic Italian food. As they make in Piedmont.
Great service, great restaurant. Reasonably priced for the great quality.
Fabulous food! Lovely service! Would come back in a heartbeat!
Great service, terrific menu and good wine list. I'll be back soon.
What a wonderful surprise! Food amazing, wine list and waiter recommendations were right on. I have already told 5 people about this place. Well done
Horrible appetizer. Not pleasing to the eye and bland. The entry was ok. Nothing great. The dessert and wine were yummy. Service terrible. Had to ask others, not server, to order wine, dessert and the check. Have been previously and it was wonderful. Not sure what happened.
Perbacco has brilliant Italian food and remains much more affordable than all other comparable Italian restaurants. Grazie per il pranzo prix-fixe e la lista di vini!
very friendly and great atmosphere. would recommend to friends
Nice food. A little noisy.
Speciality risotto and pappardelle were amazing. Delicious and fresh. Excellent service. We will be back for sure.
Pork was dry, salad had little flavor, bread was not warm
This is our go-to in the Financial District. Great wine selection, excellent food, and prices are reasonable. My husband always gets one of the available risottos and I love the pear salad and short rib pappardelle. Ask for an upstairs table for a slightly more intimate, quieter environment.
Risotto was tasteless. Disappointing!
Food is mediocre. Tagliatelle had too much horseradish. Steak came too rare even after being sent back. Waitress tried to place us at a tiny table in the middle of the floor when better tables were free. Watched countless other parties ask to be re-sat after being placed in the same area.
I have special dietary issues and they were very accommodating.
Excellent home made pasta, exceptional salads. Terrific service.
Food and service were great. The only small issue was noise level in parts of the restaurant could be lower. However, overall noise level is fair. The seating is more comfortable than Barbacco, the sister restaurant.
The food was Excellent; that burrata will haunt my dreams- in a way I am Here For. The gnocchi were velvety delicious pasta pillows. Great service as well, and even the butter for the bread was well made. Such a satisfying dinner.
The owner will make a few gold bars out of this place, I mean that in a most complimentary way!
Way too noisy. It was so difficult to have a conversation. We could barely hear the server. But, as always, the food was spectacular!
Wonderful relaxed elegant restaurant with superb classic Italian pastas. Great service, and quiet after a loud Warriors/Lakers game!
Great place that we all loved for its buzz and energy. Excellent food - especially the squid ink pasta with seafood, a fresh and roasted pear salad and deliciously chewy hazelnut meringues. The bread rolls were outstanding and heralded a good start to a lovely meal. Excellent and Very comprehensive wine list with an extremely knowledgeable and personable sommelier who gave great recommendations. I'd definitely recommend as somewhere to eat on a Saturday evening. The one downside was a sometimes noisy ambiance but that's always difficult to control.
Best Italian restaurant in San Francisco. Umberto is the ultimate host.
Had a great evening with friends at Perbacco. Nice quiet table as requested. Perfect cocktails, and tasty generous portions. Would go back in a heartbeat!
My petroleum sole was overcooked and dry. Should have had some sauce over it, rather than under the veggies.
Fabulous northern italian food, wines and service!!
Loud, busy, great food.
The service was excellent. The food was remarkable and delicious. Good cocktails too
It's the perfect place to have dinner on a Friday night after a long week. The risotto was silky delicious and the pappardelle with the short rib ragu was so tasty. It was capped off with an espresso gelato. Forget about it!
Perbacco is an excellent restaurant in the fine dining category.
Service was great.
The food was very good some dishes better than others.
We had the 3 course meal with SF restaurant week.
Parking is not easy and not cheap.
Always consistent, squid app portion a little small for my liking.
Food and service were great. Our table was in the low ceiling section. Very warm and loud.
Perbacco is always a pleasure. The service is smooth, professional and non-intrusive. They are there when you need them and invisible when you don't. The food is excellent---innovative and well prepared. You cannot ask for a better dining experience.
