Food & service are really good. But $30 for pasta dish seems too high to us. Despite the cost, it is a very pleasant dining experience in a casual, neighborhood setting.

Amazing restaurant! Can't say enough great things - even very accommodating to a vegetarian in our party :) Wine was incredible as well.

Salad was really good (2nd on the menu), bolognese pasta and the crab pasta special were great and the Malbec wine was really amazing. Best part was our waiter, his section was the bar tables I think but he was popping over to our table and really added to our wonderful experience, also recommended we get the Malbec. Can’t wait to come back!

I loved the meal. I said that I wanted a little more private table because it was my girlfriends birthday and the waitress picked a perfect table and brought out a dessert for us. I would recommend this to anybody!

My girlfriend and I went to the old Seven Hills location and it quickly became our favorite restaurant in San Francisco. We had a special occasion to celebrate this week and decided to visit the new location hoping it would still be as amazing.

It was even better this time around.

The ambiance of the new location is perfect and really sets the mood for the food experience. It is roomier than the old location but it still somehow retains the coziness and romantic ambiance.

The service was impeccable throughout the entire night. Just really attentive and kind from start to finish, which is something that some restaurants sometimes lose when they grow from a smaller location to a larger one. It was really refreshing that Seven Hills still puts so much effort into making sure the service is of a high caliber.

All that being said, the best thing about this place has always been the food, and the same is still true to this day. We ordered the Duck Liver Pate, Maccheroncelli, Tagliatelle and a special black truffle pasta they had that night.

All 4 dishes were prepared to perfection. The Duck Live Pate is probably the best we've had ever, anywhere.

The black truffle pasta was also precisely the type of truffle pasta all restaurants need to serve. It contained enough truffles to provide the necessary flavor but not so much that they have to charge you an arm and a leg for it. Easily the most affordable and delicious truffle pasta we've had in America. The Maccheroncelli and Tagliatelle were also excellent.

Overall it was a perfect experience from start to finish. It's really rare these days to have a restaurant that hits all the sweet spots (food quality, service, vibe and price) but Seven Hills does it.

Thank you to all involved for such a delicious and special evening.

The tortelli verde was to die for. The zuppa stagionale was okay but too salty. My husband really liked his pasta too. I’d come back just for the pasta — and share three! It’s pricey with wine but so delicious.

Overrated. Undercooked expensive pasta, which is a huge faux pas. Very nice service and atmosphere but overall not worth the cost.

a bit pricey but overall very satisfying. we enjoyed our dinner. several vegetarian options (though not really for vegan). food and wine were both very good. service was impeccable. the dessert options are a bit limited - would have been great if there were something lighter or more fruity after meal, in addition to the dairy-heavy panna cotta, chocolate budino and affogato.

We were surprised with the location change and all four of us agreed we liked the old location better. Quite a bit noisier. And for the first time, the service was good but not great, also, the menu seemed a bit more limited than in the past. Maybe just getting used to the new location.

It was a very good experience. Our only comment will be towards the service. For some reason our server was not kind. We mentioned several times that it was the birthday of one of the attendees and he ignored us. Other tables celebrated their birthdays with a small recognition but our server ignored us. My sister felt very sad because his son was ignored.

We had not ben to Seven Hills in a few years. The food continues to be outstanding and upscale without being precious. The new location is a bit more spacious allowing for private conversations not overheard by people at tables on either side.

And the staff is expert without being officious or cloying. A very enjoyable place to spend an evening.
