Italian
Sleek and modern with one foot firmly in the Old World is the feeling at Perbacco. The restaurant boasts a brick wall original to the historic 1913 Hind building, with other touches such as a bar top and floor tiles made from white Carrara marble. With 16 seats at the bar and 7 more intimate tables, Perbacco creates an atmosphere for a glass of wine or a light bite. Perbacco also features 2 dining rooms, one on the main floor and a smaller one on the Mezzanine, which has the added allure of serving as "theater", with windows to watch all the action in the kitchen below. Chef Staffan Terje strives to cook the finest food reflecting the Italian regions of Piemonte and Liguria. Handcrafted, house-made salumi, prosciutto and other charcuterie are not to be missed. Seasonal pastas, a tradition in Piemonte, range from the traditional ravioli to the more exotic agnolotti. Main courses feature dishes such as stuffed quail breast, a selection of seafood dishes, and vegetarian options.

The menu at Perbacco offers such unique items it is really hard to decide which to get. My husband and I shared a delicious appetizer of veal with a crab cream sauce that was so good we wanted to use our bread to get every last drop. We also loved our entrees and dessert. Our waiter, Nick, provided friendly yet very professional service. He made an excellent wine suggestion and made the entire experience very enjoyable. Perbacco is a great place for a special night out.

We love the service here. They are so kind and genuinely want you to have an amazing experience. And we did! The standouts were the pasta dishes and try the hazelnut meringues for dessert! If you’re gluten free they will accommodate nicely. They even have a hot bread that’s gf. They welcomed us with a special card for our daughter’s 21st Bday and provided complimentary dessert. So sweet!

The food is the real star at Perbacco and the service is quite good. The restaurant is modern and comfortable. The host/greeter made us feel welcome, the bar staff was very friendly, and the waitress and table service were attentive without being intrusive. The current truffle menu is worth every penny - absolutely delightful!

Enjoyed safely dining indoors with attentive and friendly service. The drinks, appetizers and mains were very good, though in one the dishes several pasta pieces were stuck together. The cooler weather menu was very meat-centric, which they do very well but may not appeal to everyone. At times it was too noisy to have a conversation, but sadly that is true of almost every good restaurant in SF.

A lively and warm restaurant, great for celebrations with both colleagues and family. Food was excellent and with both surprising flavors and thoughtful ingredients. Our server was great and very helpful, definitely knew what the menu contained. Price was way more affordable than I thought it was going to be, about 40 per person. Get the roasted Brussels sprouts, you’re welcome.

We had table outside, BUT NOT under a 'covering..
Less than half way through our meal, it started to drizzle, and then rain...
We 'got soaking' wet!!! and, there was no room for,us to move out of the rain!
We stopped our dinner and UBER back home...QUITE disappointing...!!!
AND, no apology or 'sorry about that'...
Probably not go back

We were very excited to come for our dinner. We were seated and waiting ten minutes without any service and had to ask the manager for assistance. He was very nice and helpful. One of my guests was gluten free and she was accommodated. Although she had leftover and asked to take it home, it never was returned to us. The food was excellent. I felt the service was less than satisfactory, sadly. Will try to dine here again and hope not to have the same experience.

We were initially seated in the bar area where no other tables were instead of the main dining room which was lively but still had tables available. We requested a change to the table which they did. It was much more pleasant in the dining room. Service was slow, perhaps they are struggling with staffing.

I have eaten at your restaurant 3 times previously. The short ribs were absolutely the best all three times. We are from out of town, so I was looking forward to the short ribs. Unfortunately they were so tough I had to practically saw them with a knife. Hopefully this just happen to be a bad night.

The service as outstanding. Joey knew the menu and made some great suggestions on wines after listening to what I like. Food was fresh and beautifully prepared. We had the Burrata and the Halibut and finished with the cheese course. Highly recommend this restaurant. Eclectic clientele from families with well behaved children to couples celebrating every thing!

Meal was very good/excellent, especially the vitello tomato, but the truffled risotto was underwhelming, given the extra cost of the truffles. Wines (corovin) by the glass were excellent, as was the service. Ambiance was ordinary.

We wanted to order all of the pasta dishes, they sounded so good. Two of us loved the pappardelle and one had ravioli, which she thought had grown in size since past meals there -- not a complaint. The beet and plum salad was perfectly. Attentive waitperson. We were yakking it up since we hadn't been together in a while, but he knew just how to interrupt as necessary. We appreciated the covid protocol at the door, which was checking IDs and vax cards. A fabulous place to finally go out in the world.
