This is my go to business lunch spot. Very good pastas and salads. Expensive relative to portion size, but I'm always satisfied. Loud for meetings and can take 1.5hrs to get food and finish, but really good dining experience.
The service was great and the duck which was recommended was really tough.. need to fix that chef
Outstanding meal and service! Thank you!
Umberto has put together a great team....over the years my wife and I have dined there 3-5?times a year....very consistent and authentic. Great spot!!
This was a repeat visit to Perbacco and it continues to be a GREAT dining experience. From our greeting at the start to excellent service, delicious food/drink, the evening was THE BEST!!!
Food was just OK, thought it would be better. Appetizer, brussels sprouts were soggy and lacked flavor. Our Server was barely cordial.
Both the pasta (Papadelle) and roasted pork dish were good. Best dish of the night was dessert, the 'ugly Italian cookies".
Restaurant was extremely noisy on a Friday night. All in all just not worth the price.
I didn't stay long because the place was too noisy for conversation. I had selected Perbacco because it appears on an online list of quiet restaurants. Ha!
Should not be considered Italian
Overpriced,loud, poor service
This restaurant is excellent in all categories. The service is impeccable, and the ambience is fun and lively, while upscale at the same time. I love that they have two sizes for their pastas allowing you to have multiple courses on the menu, and not just fill up on pasta. My date has celiac disease, and the waitstaff was highly attentive to this. They have gluten free pasta and bread rolls if you have an allergy. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Nice wine selection. Creative dishes cooked to perfection. Staff was attentive and accommodating.
The pasta were fresh, sauces flavorful.
2 of us shared 3- half orders of different pastas, from short rib bolognese, gnocchi in a tomato cream sauce and purses of duck...all amazing.
It was a great treat.
To all pasta lovers, a must!
Great service, knowledgeable trained server and sommelier, involved staff and excellent northern Italian food well prepared. Main dining areas can be noisy.
Each dish came out perfectly. I loved the tagliatelle, the burrata and their Toscano wine (not sure of the name.) the server was extremely polite and professional!!
The service, presentation, flavors, and menu are all superb. We sat upstairs where it is quieter and our group of four savored grilled octopus, fritto misto, risotto, pear salad, duck, two pastas, and ugly cookies for dessert. Excellent. Corkage is $25. Valet parking $12. A must experience if you enjoy authentic Italian food cooked to perfection.
Awesome waiter. He made the whole experience worthwhile!
We had lunch here, prior to going to the theater for a matinee. We were very impressed with everything at this restaurant. We have travelled many times to Italy, this restaurant would hold up very well over there.
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.
Made reservations for a Tuesday night and the place was packed! Service was excellent and food amazing. Nice cocktails.
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.
The vegetarian risotto was an incredible entree and the dessert with pistachio mousse was our group’s favorite! Server had a great dry non intrusive sense of humor. Our large group was seated in our own alcove near the kitchen, which provided a sense of privacy and entertainment. Would definitely come back!
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.
Best Italian restaurant we’ve been to in San Francisco.
