Great food and service.
Food was yummy, and they were kind enough to let us know what had dairy and offered to adjust the dishes (since one of us was lactose intolerant).
Thank you guys!
Not the first time I have eaten there which should be interpreted as speaking positively about the quality and value of eating here. We had two appetizers, warm burrada with a yummy sauce and octopus with a sauce that almost like eating lobster. We also had pasta that looked like deconstructed Mac and cheese but was actually a squash sauce—very tastey. We shared a pizza with sausage and pizzas at Piccino’s are always good. We had dessert, though one could hardly say we were still hungry, zeppoles with a great sauce of apples. I highly recommend their lemonade, lemony without being sugary.
I would highly recommend making a visit to this restaurant! I really liked everything about the place - especially the service. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and helpful.
They ran out of basil and the focaccia bread wasn’t hot but overall good experience
Pizza with asparagus and smoked mozzarella was really tasty.
Great food, lovely service sat outside with our family dog-great experience lots of charm
One of the best experiences. Daniel and I were there to celebrate our dads. February 28th is a special day for us as it's my late dad's birthday and Daniel's father passed away on the same day last year. we felt so well taken care of through the entire evening (Thank you, Leslie!) Everyone is so nice here. Thank you for the corner table. our favorite spot. food is amazing and soothing. my tummy always feels peaceful after eating here. wine selection/suggestion is always good. we love Piccino.
Consistently good food and good service. Very noisy during peak times but other then that we love going back to Piccino.
Portions are small and it’s not really fine dining but more quality casual dining. Let’s remain humble... Good care for the dishes from the kitchen but nothing really exceptional, some flagship dishes are still missing, and dishes that could be staple dishes bringing back to grandma or family cooking memories are a bit tiny lacking of sides at least. A few simple pasta with polpettes would not hurt. Service, location, decoration and ambiance are solid.
I love the ambience at Piccino. It is the perfect spot for a Sunday dinner or weekend brunch. The squash soup is exceptional as is the pizza bianchi.
Great! Good food Nice People
First of all, when I made the reservation, I did not notice it was only brunch on Saturdays or I would not have gone there. I do not like brunches. I was looking forward to Italian food for lunch. The portion on our appetizer was delicious but tiny which made the price even higher. My "salad" came with a few pieces of sliced celery completely smothered with dry, finely grated Parmesan or similar cheese. It was described as a Ceasar-type salad and there was no lettuce or other greens I could see. It was inedible as it was just like trying to eat a forkful of grated Parmesan, and I sent it back and ordered eggs. The regular coffee was not to my taste, and they do not offer refills.
I'm sure others like the restaurant as there were many people there; however, I will not go back.
Business or party or friends and family getting together, this one-of-kind beautiful place - una palazzina gialla! - is the place where to go to enjoy real delicious and simple food. That is the main thing about Italy: semplicità!
My fifth visit and it is just as astounding as the first. The food was superb, the desserts creative and perfect. Beautiful interior and marvelous ambiance. The staff was attentive, informative and pleasant.
We were greeted by a lovely Persian hostess who did everything to make our lunch experience perfect. . The gentleman gave us a
good Italian white wine. He was knowledgeable and accompanying. Even though you were very busy at lunch. We shared the smoked trout,
which was cooked perfectly. We will always return.
perfect as always! everyone is friendly, charming, and helpful. great wine selection. food is divine.
the food was great, I will definitely come back.
I would have to save that this place has become my favorite Italian spot. What a vibrant spot with fantastic food. The servers were mindful of every detail - including changing out the silverware and wince glasses. Friendly and well informed.
Dogpatch is still playing catch-up in the fine dining arena but Piccino was touted to us as a place worth a trip. As it happens we had business in the area so we chose it for lunch. Piccino has a very nice vibe, a combination of casual sophistication and new age spirit. The place is bright and open and the seating is comfortable. Noise level was a modest buzz. Service was friendly and professional. We started with the radish and kohlrabi appetizer, which was interesting but not totally successful. For entrees we shared the funghi pizza (acceptable), the strozzapreti with squash (flavorful but quite rich) and the chiocciole with fennel sausage (excellent, but a little spicy). We found carafes of some decent, slightly obscure wines ( a syrah and a chardonnay from producers we never heard of). At $37/pp wine tip and tax included it was not unreasonable for a creative meal, although not a bargain. We will return when our travels take us to that part of town but I don't view Piccino as a destination restaurant.
Awesomeness healthy friendly warm great wine wonder conversations.
It was good everything. We kinda did a la carte type of thing with the food we ordered.
Nothing was left on the table nothing!
came here for lunch and it was amazing. every dish from appetizer to pizza to dessert was beautifully presented and a taste sensation. so i made dinner reservations to send a good friend off to NYC. And blah. nothing was terrible, but nothing was particularly noteworthy either, except for the service which was attentive, accommodating & not over-bearing.
Had a really great meal on a nice date.
The restaurant exceeded expectation. It is a very relaxed pace, and the staff is courteous, attentive and very helpful. Each dish had an unexpected flavor twist that made every bite an adventure. We were so relaxed and enjoyed our evening.
Fancy place ! Pleasant people looking after you ! Food as such was ok but not great! The sun choke dish was good , that was something I have never had anywhere else. The soup was pretty bland lacked flavor . The main entree vegetarian pasta dish was good ! The non alcoholic pear beverage was too sour for my taste!
Our waitress was super knowledgeable of the menu and provided answers to all our questions. She was honest with her recommendations and we couldn't have had a better meal. Definitely plan on going back very soon. Other staff members were also very attentive.
Food was not as good as I remembered it to be a while back. Service was slow.
Delicious, as always. Piccino is my favorite go-to for every occasion.
OVerall, it was a good experience. However, the food was not of the highest quality. Some dishes were great but some were average. I wish there were more dishes lower in carb value for those who are health-conscious.
I will return, however, to try their pizza.
Every dish was delicious.
Food was fantastic as always. We love the octopus salad although it could stand to be a more generous portion.
Never disappointed when I come. Love this place!!
Superb squash soup, excellent light pizza, and an amazing olive oil cake with citrus - one of the best desserts I've had in years. And friendly helpful service. In a pleasant historic building, you can't go wrong here. Not inexpensive, but worth it.
absolutely great first time at Piccino! Took an out-of-town friend, needed a warm cozy place for a good long chat, and we had that and more. The food was excellent, authentic yet updated, and we liked every single dish we had. Also, the service was perfect - that hard to get balance between attentive and "overly present". Knowledgable and friendly wait person. Would definitely recommend and will go back!
we had such a great dinner! It was our first time at Piccino and we will definitely be back!
Had the Indian spiced cauliflower pizza and the octopus. Both amazing. Terrific service as well.
Really great - one of my favorite restaurants in SF
Our server Kate has us keep coming back for more and more of this delicious food!
