Celebrating a birthday with a friend whose birthday is next month.

She had three course lunch with chicken marsalla and was pleased.

I had beet salad and lemon cheesecake....iced tea all around.

Waiter most efficient and friendly, kept those glasses and water full.

We enjoyed our visit, the meal, the service, and the quiet.

Good location for pre-theater dinner. Nice ambiance and good service; waitress asked if we were going to A.C.T. performance and gave us complimentary bruschetta. Unfortunately the food is average at best.

Lunch service not made within 60 minutes, a service charge of 50$due to extra time over 60 minutes during JPMorgan week... Last time I go there... Used to be good, just got bad, real bad...

We had reservations for the Museum of Ice Cream and I saw Puccini and Pinetti was a six minute walk from the Museum and who doesn't like Italian food. These was a great find and we will be back. The fried calamari and rock ship with the spicy sauce was a tasty beginning. We ordered two pizzas, spaghetti and meatballs and the cappelini. All were great and it was great sharing. I also recommend you stop by for their Happy Hour if you can.

This is first time I have had a terrible meal in San Francisco. The food was bland and mediocre. The only exception was the service which was exceptional. Unfortunately, that was all that was great. I will never eat here again.

GREAT location. FANTASTIC service. LOVELY ambience. Bland food. Disappointed with all of our dishes. My husband had a penne dish that looked full of flavor - was not. I ordered their signature spaghetti and meatballs and it looked amazing... and lacked any distinguishing flavor. Mild tomato, underspiced beef. The presentation was wonderful and we LOVED the wait staff. May try again hoping this was an off night during the busy Union Square holiday season.

Went to restaurant to have dinner with friends. The food was good dependable Italian nothing to fancy. The drinks from the bar were good. Check out the bar menu if you don't want a large meal, they have some great options. The main restaurant was noisy but clean. I had spaghetti and meatballs. They were good. The sauce was pretty dry and could have used more tomato.
I would go again but not at the top of my list.

Perfectly prepared dishes, wonderful flavors and textures. The pork chop was tender, juicy and flavorful. Chicken Marsala was served with a wonderfully rich sauce. Highly recommend adding grilled shrimp to any pasta dish as they were excellent.

Food was average and menu was very limited. There must have been a staffing problem on the night we were there. Server was rushed and rushing around. Long waits for refills, order additions etc. No way are the prices reflective of the quality.
