Puccini & Pinetti Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
The food was good. The service was excellent. Disappointed to see that they raised all of their prices for Christmas Eve. If I knew I was going to pay $$$ prices I would have chosen differently, I did my research and didn’t expect that.Our server was great. Atmosphere was nice.
We requested a more quiet table and the hostess seated us at a booth that was more away from the crowd. The bar area was very lively and yes, loud. No worries though. The food was very fresh and prices were not unexpected - not cheap but not outrageous. We had happy hour glasses of wine which was actually quite tasty. I recommend getting there at 5:15 or before 6:00 anyway. After that it becomes quite crowded and loud. Overall, very good Italian neighborhood restaurant.
Everything was just perfect. We had a table for Nine and 1 Baby....We were in the back corner which was perfect for the kiddos all to ourselves......It was a quiet day which was even better!!!! My Christmas in SF with my girls in the family/Daughter in laws and grand daughters...We will go back next year for our family tradition......
The three of us ordered different appetizers salads and soup to share . The bruschetta was outstanding, the minestrone soup tasty, the warm spinach salad excellent, the pear/Gorgonzola/pancetta pizza a taste delight and the polenta was good too. We had too much to eat and staying at a hotel, we couldn’t take the leftovers.... 😞. One in our party wanted spumoni ice cream but they didn’t have it. Oh well. A great place.
We dine here several times a year . . . usually when seeing a nearby play.
It's a good solid option, but it's not an exceptional place. Food is predictably good but seldom remarkable. Same for the service. Waiters are usually good, but maybe they have a few more tables than they should have. Wine is on the pricey side.
This time it was Friday night and the place was hoppin'. On other days and time, it's typically a little more pleasant. I prefer seating by the windows -- on the periphery of the sometimes noisy core. The bonus is sometimes is unexpected entertainment (see the guy in the photo).
We went for brunch and were disappointed. I have the crab cake Benedict and while the eggs and Hollandaise sauce were excellently prepared, I believe the crab cake was a frozen patty. Not appetizing.... not what you would expect in San Francisco. My friend had the PNP omelette and said it’s simply was adequate; She had nothing good to say about the individual components or the overall omelette. Maybe they do well for Italian dinner but they were a disappointment for brunch.
Was in town for a quick weekend getaway. Decided to try this place as our hotel was right across the street. Went with my fiancé. Got Meatballs and spaghetti for $28.00 and chicken marsala for $30.00 after the spaghetti was gone we asked for a side of penne as we still had meat sauce left and were still hungry. The serving size was small, charged $18 for just extra pasta. I thought that was ridiculous, didn’t say anything and just paid the bill. Not going back.
Excellent food! Unfortunately the service was poor. Appetizer was brought to table minutes before our lunch was served. Grilled onions were forgotten and served 5 minutes after sandwich was served. Ordered a bottle of wine, waited 10-15 minutes, and had to cancel the order because we needed to make a 2 pm show time. I believe the slow service may be limited to the server we had.
Extremely busy the night we went. Our reservation got us an ugly two seat table next to the front door. People coming, going and waiting for a table... did not make for an enjoyable visit.
And a seasonal menu came out versus the menu advertised on Open Table and website ... not great. Then the gluten free pasta was under cooked. And felt like it was an inconveniece to have to deal with food allergies even though i had indicated such on the Open Table reservation. Overall not a memorable experience.
Overpriced and low quality food. We ordered the $44 Steak and it was not tender, over cooked dry and with way too much fat. It came out with a huge pile of french fries and some rucula without dressing. Nothing fancy nor tasty. Didn’t meet my expectations for this restaurant’s ratings.
