When we opened the doors of our tiny restaurant in December 2006, our goal was to make Piccino as welcoming as the home of a close friend, our food as simple and beautifully executed as possible. We're honored that Piccino became a thriving hub of the community. In May of 2011, we moved from our original space into a new home (dubbed The Yellow Building) on the corner of 22nd & Minnesota Streets.

Our menu still features the classic and seasonally driven thin-crust pizzas and polpette Piccino is known for; our salads and soups use the finest organic produce sourced directly from small local farms. Piccino's menu has expanded to include more small starter plates, house-made pastas, contorni (vegetable sides), and special entrees of meat, fish, or poultry. Seasonal desserts and expertly made coffee complete our daily offerings.

Always enjoy coming to your restaurant, but yesterday there was an unusual delay in our entrees. An extra salad was provided as an apology (and appreciated). I think the opening of the Chase Center may be impacting service. Still love you and see you again!

Excellent service, amazing fresh food, kinda an odd side facing into a retail store- our server from New Zealand was A++ from timing, to recommendations, to her personality

Love this restaurant. I've eaten there twice and the food, both times, was outstanding and quite gorgeous to behold; food as art.

I'm loathe to give such a good review as I don't want it to get tooooooo popular! But I couldn't resist.

The hostess was rude and not accommodating with my infant. We love this place and we were so disappointed. Our waiter was lovely which helped turn this around but not dying to come back here again

We arrived early but we were not served in a timely fashion. Our pizza order was forgotten and we watched people around us who arrived after us being served for quite a while before the waitress came over to apologize for the problem. She offered bread but by the time she brought it the pizza arrived moments after and it was wasted. The music was a boring mix of seventies oldies. I think they could do better. We ordered crude, which was very good, but minuscule and expensive, olives, which were good, and a pizza, which was also tasty. If they had served us on time I might have a different impression.

Had not been here for years. We decided to give it a try again and were blown away how delicious everything was. Everything seemed as fresh as could be and the pizzas are a cracker crust - the type preferred in Rome. Somebody is paying real attention in the kitchen. It is fairly expensive but have to say it was well worth it.

Piccino has been a go-to restaurant for our family for a number of years. The food is always delicious and the service is stellar. From the garden salad to the Salsiccia pizza, to the short rib hash (brunch), it's all good.

We shared our dishes and they were all good. We were 6 people, not 5 as I had booked for. But they were very nice about it and accommodated us with no problem. Friendly service and a very nice atmosphere and setting. Also, not so noisy that we couldn't talk as is the case with so many restaurants in SF; in fact, we conversed to much we were the last to leave.

the food always fantastic. The space always beautiful. The service? needs a bit of a wake up call from complacency. they were passive and seemed totally uninterested. It would be sad that the restaurant fails because of indifferent service. They had NO desire to be bothered by customers.
