Very good food in a nice setting, convenient to Union Square, and both Warfield and Golden Gate theaters.

We sat near the door in a booth which is meh. But it wasn't awful. The service was attentive (asked about our showtime and helped keep us on schedule). We had the calamari, the short rib dinner, the spaghetti and meatballs and a custom pizza. All were good and comfort dishes on a blustery evening. The servings were good sized and we all walked away full and content!

The food was great, one of the best pasta we’ve had in a while. Really recommend their Penne Carbonara! We ordered salads and they were also great. Both starters and entrees are good size, not too big, not too little. Service was friendly and helpful.

The service was OK but very disorganized. The food was awful. The Bruschette was made with stewed (canned) tomatoes and goat cheese........yuck. Goat cheese? Seriously? The Caesar salad dressing tasted like it came out of a bottle. Very bland. We didn't order dinner but left instead to find some thing eatable some place else.

Food was good. It was noisy and difficult to talk to the others at our table.

Service was excellent. Most of the food we ordered was good other than the chicken on the fettuccine alfredo's were a bit overcooked. Other big thing why we like to go her is the gluten free options. This night, all but one or two entrees and most of the apps were or could be adapted to GF and they know to use new pans/different pasta water for GF requests.

One other thing I really object to is the mandatory gratuity (5+), and on top of it being required, it was 20%, 22% if you split checks. I always want the option to tip based on service and in most cases, i tip double tax for good service and more if the service was excellent. So keep this in mind if you end up coming with a larger party.

Overpriced and not very authentic Italian in San Francisco. Never had fried gnocchi before (and it was burnt!).
Staff was friendly and efficient however.

Muy rico restaurante italiano, el menú es muy completo y variado, las pizzas muy ricas y las porciones de muy buen tamaño sin ser exageradamente muy grandes. Muy buena carta de vinos y postres, precios muy accesibles considerando que esta uno en el corazón de San Francisco. Muy recomendable.

Reserved a table for NYE. Website said there was a NYE special menu, but was given regular menu? Service was good. Loud restaurant-hard to have a romantic dinner. Food was good, definitely not great. Really good gelato.

Came here for a family date night. Service was prompt and very good. The food was ok. For some dishes it was honestly a little bland, but not bad. Definitely opt in for the fresh ground pepper. Overall not a bad place if you’re looking for somewhere close to the Curran Theatre.

Dinner before The Nutcracker. Friendly service, and they accommodated special requests for vegan dishes. Great location close to Union Square. Will definitely return.
