This was a great place for us to have our last dinner in San Francisco. My husband's meal was a bit small, he ended up eating a good portion of mine! But it was all wonderful. Service was great, "jug" of wine was perfect, price was very decent. Highly recommend.
Loved the experience excellent food and service
Perfect for dinner before a show at the Curran Theater!
I was amazed at the great food offered! I had low expectations and was pleasantly surprised!
VERY noisy! Good food, strange, off putting art. Waiters quick and accommodating but not very friendly.
Double Dolce cocktail a must try! It was FABULOUS!!!!
I was disappointed in my meal. I ordered the braised short ribs, because I had ordered them before and really enjoyed my meal. This time, the portion of meat was smaller - different from the time before. It was disappointing.
I did appreciate that I wasn’t charged for one dessert, as we were celebrating my sister’s birthday.
Nice restaurant for theater goers. Good food, nothing special
If you're celiac, do not go here. Most places these days you can make do, and most servers can help, but this menu is very limited. Unless you want to eat yet another over-priced salad while your friends have a great night, just stay home and order skip the dishes.
The baby octopus and cannelloni was great.
The vibe needs work. It was too bright, we couldn’t hear the music and the service wasn’t good. They didn’t come back at all and it was slow. Food was good though.
Fast service, excellent food, the chocolate air around the molten chocolate cake was amazing! Would definitely recommend.
Service was slow and disjointed. Food was tasty and drinks were creative and very good.
Hi Debra, We are glad that you enjoyed the food and drinks, but it is unfortunate to hear that service was not up to par. Hopefully you will give us another chance to impress you. Cheers, Cynthia
Great and quick service so we could make it to a concert nearby
We are grateful for the kind words! Thank you for sharing your review!
Great place for dinner before seeing a play at ACT which is a block away.
We enjoyed the mushroom pizza and salad and a glass of red wine that was "on tap".
The service was lacking and the place is TOO LOUD! The artsy menu is a little distracting and hard to read. The options were plentiful though. I got the gnocchi and I really liked it. The beef was tender and the sauce was the perfect amount.
My friend got the kale salad and it was way over dressed. Her pizza was good tasting but the crust was way undercooked. I would have complained. She didn’t. Then again our server barely came by our table so complaining wasn’t really an option.
It was worth a try but I wouldn’t come back.
Tratto is a great place for a meal and is close to Union Square. The food and service are very good, and you can have a leisurely meal with conversation that can be heard!
Noisy to an extreme. Food is ok, not great. Not much variety or creativity.
The mushroom, garlic, and truffle pizza was outstanding!
We like Tratto before the theater. Food is well prepared and reasonable in price. Service is lackluster..not that the servers are bad, but they need maybe more training. They know proper wine service but there seems to be little interest in performing above and beyond the basic level of getting the food on the table. Tratto has much to offer, a super location, interesting wine list, attractive price points on food, but I can’t get past the utter lack of interest by the servers.
Trendy, fun, spacious, delicious and thoughtful food. Fun cocktails! Can't wait to come again!
Good food choices, apps and pizza were nice.
Food was great but service was slow & the waiter seemed overwhelmed servicing so many tables cuz he kept going to the table next to us with our food & drinks.
Good food at a very reasonable price.
Firstly, the restaurant was beastly hot and our waiter (who was horrid) was sweating. Secondly, our waiter was slow, disinterested and obnoxious and did not make the restaurant look good. The food was passable, but the service and ambiance made this a place I will never go to again.
A rather limited menu, however, it fit our bill of wanting to taste various items. We had a frito misto, meat balls, an arugula salad, roasted eggplant cannelloni and a broccoli orecchiette which was more than enough for the three of us, plus drinks of course.
First time. Pleasant experience, enjoyed seeing the hotel next door. Will return!
Food was great with large servings. Lively atmosphere and good service. However experience ruined when we received charge on credit card $10 higher than we had approved in restaurant (which included a tip). We’re visiting from overseas and will not be back in San Francisco to action the overcharge.
Appetizer was cold. So we told waiter and said if our food is cold will send back. Our food comes out at once with salad. Send entree back so we could eat salad. Food arrives was microwaved burning our tongues. Food good but they need help
Great pasta, great service. Yummy apps and drink.
Amazing food and service! The pasta was already good, but then we tried the desert and it was so well-composed.
Great place! Loved the food and the staff were very helpful . I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice place in the city to eat.
Great place to have dinner before shows at the Golden Gate. Service was very responsive.
Friendly atmosphere. Good food
I was craving pasta so I ate here. My pasta was delicious. And the service was great.
We went there for a quick bite before an event. We had small plates and wine. It was all very good.
I would go back again.
Great Italian restaurant off of our hotel lobby. Convenient. The meatballs and bruschetta small plates were delicious!
The tiramisu had no flavour
We were very impressed with this new to us spot for pre-theater dining. The menu has a lot of different options and items that are good for sharing. The chopped salad was particularly good. Nice cocktail list. The space is airy and nicely designed and not noisy.
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
