Our Beginnings was a plate of Bruchetta and that was amazing. Services was on point and consistent. There was a drink I did not like but was able to trade it without any problems. I ordered the Rose Penne, the server did warned me it would be spicy. But I loved it and it’s the perfect spicy.

Early dinner reservations and the restaurant was fairly empty so we were seated quickly. Service seemed slower than it should have been given the number of patrons. Food came out quickly and was tasty. Portion size was good to hearty. Happy Hour crab cake could have used a bit more crab and less filler. Fig Pizza from the main menu is a favorite.

The food seemed good. Salad was fresh, but didn't really have salad as a meal option unless you wanted to add meat. Not many dairy free options. Everyone else seemed happy though. Portions for non-salad options were large. Be warned the gentleman behind us was very upset because the lasagna dish did not have any meat in it. So if you order the lasagna, don't expect meat. It's a nice cute place, the menu is definitely for cheese lovers.

I’ve eaten here almost every time I’ve come up to City for theater. It never disappoints! The special of day pasta (all of us ordered) was delicious. Veggies, shrimp, fennel Sausage and Brown butter sauce.

Waiter was excellent!! Personable and attentive.

P&P drastically changed their menu and removed all of the good, unique dishes in the process. This was a disservice to long time customers. Now there is nothing unique about the restaurant- it feels like a tourist trap with basic food for unsophisticated palates. Sad! Bring back our favorites!

Was busy & full of tourists, understandably due to location. The food was good... but the bread & tapenade might have been my favorite thing. Prices were ok, but maybe a bit high for what it was. Only tried this place for the bonus points... and would go back again for same reason.

I would say our visit was very mediocre. This was a pre-play brunch /lunch. The food was acceptable, but nothing special, the chicken on my spinach salad was very over done. Others found their food just ok.
The biggest problem was that the 4 of us had to lean into the middle of the table to carry on a conversation..way too loud, from neighboring guests to the kitchen activity and the restaurant was not that full.
Look and feel of the restaurant and the menu were good..

I compliment your staff on the quickness of getting the food to our large 12-person group! Your food was good but sadly our waitress did not treat everyone at our table with respect. One of my daughter's asked for ranch dressing to go along with her pizza and the waitress scoffed at her and actually wrinkled up her face and looked disgusted and said we do not serve ranch dressing with pizza! I realize that this waitress was from another country and possibly in a different culture they might handle it differently but it still is not good to leave your guests feeling disrespected and irritated by your waitress's poor behavior.

I had an early business lunch but it turned out that lunch is not served on weekends, only brunch. There were few pasta dishes available as a result. I had the linguini with clams. There was a lot of liquid in the dish. The focaccia was freshly baked. Service was great.

Service was very slow. I think this restaurant could be a good one but they need to hire more servers if they want attract a lunch crowd. Not every lunch can take two hours! We did like the lunch break special. That's a great idea for streamlining for faster service.

Stayed in SF overnight for business. Restaurant was close to my hotel and they gave me a nice table even though I was solo. Had minestrone, pizza margarita and two glasses of wine. $53 before tip. A little over priced for what it was, but service was good and I felt welcome.

The food is not worth the price point. The support staff was friendly but our waitress was not good. Took the order for our kids and then came back 15 minutes later when their food was already served to take our order. Not professional either, she loudly called out a declined credit card to the table next to us. Food was not authentic Italian, sauces tasted like something from a jar. Cheese platter seemed like it was bought at Costco.
