We had a lovely dinner. Best part was dessert. Burnt caramel gelato. Yum!
We got the best table with an outstanding server.! The dood was amazing as always.
I am a regular patron of Perbacco for business meals. The food is always delicious. Depending on where your table is, you may actually be able to hear each other talk! Always in search of quiet restaurants with good food.
Food and service was great. Only complaint I have is the 2 people tables are way too close together and a bit noisy. Next time I will just request a booth. However, your food is very tasty and the service was on point. Our pork chop came medium rare and we asked for it to be taken back and cooked medium well. The server and food runner handled it immediately and they were both very gracious about it. I will defiantly come back
This is our third time at Perbaco and it has consistently impressed us. The food is just delicious, every time and everyone at the table. The service was ok and friendly but could have been a bit better. LOVED the papardeli pasta with meat and the cheese filled raviola with sweet corn sauce! Wine steward helped make a good selection and dessert of gelato was tasty too.
Very nice and interesting pasta variations. Norhing you have seen before, perfectly cooked. Unfortunately no lighter options. Venue is little bit too dense with lot of tables and pretty noisy. Good for lunch, maybe not cosy enough for dinner.
Food was subpar and the menu was very limited. No comparison to mid level NYC Italian trattorias.
Service was attentive
Food was overall very good the only item we were disappointed in was the chicken appetizer. The summer tomato salad was very good also the pappardelle was outstanding.
While just an small group for a business lunch this time around - Outstanding. 5 stars. Great food and service.
We had a fabulous lunch and look forward to returning soon.
Met colleagues for lunch and it was fantastic!
We had reservation at 11:30 and has to wait until exactly 11:30 to be seated at this first seating. If you come at 11:20, why wait to be seated at 11:30 exactly?
The dinner was very good from start to finish. The service was exceptional. I had the pork roast which was flawless. I’ve been here two or three times. I live right down the street
Perbacco is one of my favorites in the FiDi. Great food and service.
Overall good experience. Service started slow but they made up for it with extra attention to my sister who was celebrating her birthday. Without being asked, they made a special effort to acknowledge her birthday, bring special offerings to celebrate. Food was very nice, beautifully presented, and the wine options were plentiful and good quality. Perbacco did a very good job!
Good food nice ambiance. Some hiccups with service but they made up for it and acknowledged it on their own with a complimentary dessert, appreciate that kind of service.
Ordered their veggie dish whipped cod pasta and the ragu noodles. All great. Loved the ugly but tasty cookies (meringue). Salted burnt caramel gelato was also a hit. All in all good experience and looking forward to part 2
It was great. Crowded but the service was quick.
I was excited to come here. We were early for our reservation but were nice to seat us. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and and attentive. I was eager to try the famous agnolotti dal plin and my date had the pappardelle with short rib. We split the Fritto misto as a starter and shared the dessert. The agnolotti was somewhat of a disappointment and did not live up to its promise of flavors. My date liked it and we exchanged plates and I was quite happy with the short rib. The fritto misto was light and good. The Nuvola dessert was excellent, The service was exemplary.
We will definitely come back
First time to the restaurant and pleasantly surprised. Our table was ready for us upon arrival, but we elected to do bar dining instead. It was lively and interactive in a sophisticated way and the service was excellent. The wine list was nicely matched with the food and the presentation was lovely and the taste even better. We will return for sure.
We came looking for a good Italian meal, however, it was too noisy to enjoy for the prices that they charge there. We paid as almost as much for dinner and wine there as we did at Mourad without the same service, vibrant setting or as good of food. Kinda disappointed. As a chef I wouldn't have sent out the Romano beans - although they tasted ok - they looked horrible. The waiter did take it off our check, without us asking as he saw that my husband wouldn't eat them - that was a service plus. The sauces were clearly thickened with cornstarch and although that isn't the worst thing - did look funny and out of place for this quality and cuisine of restaurant. The pasta and sauce were very good, but the scallops came with a riff off of the same shiny sauce. Not very creative at all.
We called at 8:00 to say we were going to be late....we had unfortunately lost our Norwegian friends as they went for a walk! Needless to say, the gal that answered the phone said that she understood and asked if we would still be coming. I told her I would call back. Thankfully, we found our friends several blocks away. Called back the restaurant and they said they could still seat us. They were wonderful! Our server, Kaley, was delightful (we’ve had him in the past) and our Norwegian friends thoroughly enjoyed it too!
What a nice way to need and eventful night:-).
Our special occasion was our 18th anniversary. The table and environment was warm and inviting. We started with Burrata Cheese served with a couple of crostini and fresh vegetables. It was so amazing. The crostini was thin, crisp, perfectly seasoned and not too oily. This could have been all I had and I would have been happy. A platter of freshly made rolls arrived with butter or olive oil. The interior of the roll was airy and tasted delicious. I ordered Halibut and my husband the Pappardelle. The fish arrived in a beautiful red sauce that contained fresh shrimp, mussels, tomato concentrated flavors. It was so beautiful and rich. The Pappardelle was divine. Our waiter was very nice and helpful. Looking forward to going again to try more dishes.
The noise even in the portion of the restaurant with the low ceiling was so high! Our server was attentive as were the bussers. The appetizer (seasonal tomato salad) was good but it had a strange flavor to the seasoning on it. We each had a pasta dinner and both were so good. The flavor on mine kept building as I ate. Nice.
Good food and good service ever since I started dining in this restaurant.
Perbacco is our go-to dining spot in the Financial District. Everything was excellent, from the food to the ambiance to the service. It always is. Thank you for helping to make our anniversary a great one.
Another wonderful experience at Perbacco. The sommelier, Iris, is extremely knowledgeable and personable. She took the time to get to know our tastes and budget and suggested a fabulous wine. Our server, Cameron, was attentive and responsive to our pace. It was my birthday, and I was welcomed with a card. Nice touch! We had the tajarin and the gnocchi. Both were excellent. Entrees were sea scallops and the stuffed quail. Both had sauces that intensified the taste. The quail entrée was large. We took half home. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
It's been 12 years since they've opened, and every time I go in, it feels like the new hot-spot in SF. The ownership and staff make me feel like they've invited me into their home, and the food is consistently spectacular yet approachable.
Very good pasta and Italian food. Also very loud and hard to hear your dinner across the table. Service was a little bit uneven where we couldn’t get our servers attention.
Excellent food, great wine list and excellent service!! Our best meal in San Francisco!
Great food and excellent service.
Excellent food. Great service.
We had a great dinner at Perbacco! The appetizers were great dinner was fabulous and our Server matched the wines perfect for both of our dinners!
Loved it and we will be back!
Perfect FiDi dinner. Exceptional pasta. Welcoming for those enjoying a more formal evening and even a few stopping for a meal after the Giants game.
Disappointing based on previous visits. Watery risotto and disappointing pasta and Vitello tonnato. Slow and inconsistent wine service.
Food was great but I would not consider it a traditional Italian menu which we were looking for. Very small menu. Risotto was fantastic.
Great service, but food was mediocre. Wasn't impressed.
Outstanding pasta and staff. We are never disappointed.
So noisy. Impossible to have a business lunch.
Second time dining at Perbacco. Our waiter was outstanding. So personable and authentic. He helped choose our wine and when we were not too impressed with the bean side dish, he removed it from the table and the check with no issues. I had the scallops for the main course. They were the sweetest, best cooked, most delicious scallops I've ever had. The carpaccio was also very tasty, but I wasn't overally impressed with the seasame seed toast. Should have just had plain bread toasts. Overall, excellent dinner. I left wanting to come back for the scallop dish again.
Amazing experience here yet again! Big fan of this place! I’ve been here with a friend and with a client and both times the service and food were incredible! Highly recommend this restaurant! I’ll be back for sure!
Amazing customer service and really nice ambiance.
