Pre/post Theatre
A spirited, bar-driven restaurant serving rustic Italian fare with modern sensibilities. Tratto means the stroke of a pen or a mark in Italian, nodding to both the neighborhood’s artistic history and the name of The Marker, the boutique hotel next door.

Tratto’s flavorful menu of simple, delicious and shareable dishes coupled with casual, communal-style dining creates a neighborhood bar experience inspired by the Italian tradition of “aperitivo,” or happy hour.

Guests can enjoy playful twists on classic Italian cocktails, boozy Italian sodas, and beer and wine from California and Italy, including a jug of house wine from the taps.

Choose from a wide selection of traditional small-plate antipasti, house-made pastas and pizzas, entrees served family-style, seasonal side dishes, and classic Italian desserts including ice creams, gelatos and sorbets.

The service was the best we have had in San Francisco. Great recommendations from the server. House made Italian sodas were delicious. We had Polenta fries, butter lettuce salad with green goddess dressing, and roasted grape prosciutto pizza. All delicious and plenty of food for two people. Had the Italian donuts and an affogato with housemade gelato for dessert- both amazing.

I went there for my 50th birthday celebration, this was stated on booking and by my husband earlier in the day! I booked this restaurant as I read that they would help me celebrate, nothing was done acknowledged or even when I informed them said nothing! The waiter rolled his eyes every time we asked for anything and had to go and get another server! Totally disappointed and the food wasn’t good! Thanks Tratto for the birthday disappointment

Not bad at all -- just ordinary. Very limited, odd menu. If I ever go back I'll order soup & small plates. (The minestrone was outstanding as was the bruschetta.) The pasta entrees were just not very good --- the pasta was overcooked and underseasoned. Considering they only have a handful of entrees on the menu you'd think they'd do them better. The description of the place said "buzzy vibe." I have no idea what that means unless it refers to table after table of millennials looking at their phones and not talking to each other. If I rated this place on the entrees only it would be 1 star. Service was efficient but not warm or welcoming.

It was our last night In SF and Trattoria was a great place to enjoy it. It was lively and spacious and I loved the contour landscape on the wall. We we're served promptly and our waiter was knowledgable and attentive. The wine and Itslian sodas and all the food was terrific. A great night. Two small things we're not ideal though. First, the salad and the pasta came out at the exact same time. I wanted to eat my salad, but the pasta was getting cold so I switched to the pasta, then finished my meal with the salad. Not what I wanted to be doing. The other thing wad that i got several big knots of fettuccine, clumps that were not seperated well. It tasted fine but looked rather homely. A trifle I suppose,

Great food and good service. I loved the decor. A bit noise because it is in a hotel, but overall was a great dinner before going to a show.

Pretty cool place. The best arugula salad I’ve ever had, WOW. I had the chicken and it was great. Not 5 stars ‘cause it’s noisy, but maybe I’m getting old.

Exceeded my expectations, all went so smoothly. We had an early 5 pm reservation and let our server know we wanted to be done by 6:15 to head to Hamilton, he said no problem and I was at ease to enjoy my meal. The decor is great and loved the pic worthy hotel lobby. I had a seasonal strawberry kiwi Italian soda with Vodka and it was unique and delicious. We started with the canneloni then had our pizza and salad. Loved all three. We were out the door by 6:15!

Relatives were taking me out to lunch for my birthday in the downtown area, so I suggested Tratto. I’ve had dinner there, and since my family enjoyed our experience, I thought that this would be a good time to try their lunch menu. We all enjoyed our meal yesterday - especially the pizza and Italian doughnuts for dessert!

Some relatively unique dishes very well prepared for a tasty meal. House made soda with a different flavor each day - the flavors are strong, but good. The deserts are really good too.

Very simple! No bread offering which most Italian restaurants provide. Server took slightly unfinished dishes away too quickly. Noise level of the open space was way too loud with voices bouncing off the hard walls and floor.

The Hilton on Union Square recommended you. What a neat spot! The food was terrific and we hard a hard time choosing just on entree for each of us. The SummaTime cocktail special was also delicious. We would highly recommend this spot!

Convenience was the main reason we went to Tratto after a long day of walking. The food was just ok. My husband's gnocchi was pretty good but my cannelloni was bland and gummy. An Italian restaurant should be ashamed to serve such poor pasta. The service was friendly but not efficient. Would not go back and would not recommend.

We were looking for a new restaurant for brunch and stumbled on Tratto while walking around the area near our hotel. The reserved tables were on the corner by the windows and spaced far enough apart that we were able to converse easily even though the restaurant was full. We ordered the French toast (two very thick slices of brioche browned to perfection), eggs Benedict which were perfectly done, and the breakfast pizza (with Parmesan, thinly sliced speck, and a poached egg). There were so many enticing items on the menu that making a choice was difficult! The food was excellent. The service was attentive without being cloying. The atmosphere was relaxing.

Food was delicious, ambience was nice, good location, price was good. The main problem is that it took quite a while to get hold of our waiter for ordering, paying etc.
