Excellent food and wine choices, professional service and great ambiance with older neighborhood and younger hip crowd. The interior is particularly nice with different seating areas and options.

The food here is so delicious. Fresh and fine ingredients with simple preparation to let them shine. We went early so it was very quiet, which we prefer. Service was lovely, friendly, just the right amount of attention.

First night in San Francisco and we were looking for something close by and this place was a great find. Would go back. Everyone was great and the food perfect.

I love this place. Everyone I take here is always very happy. Amazing pizza, pasta, appetizers and entrees. Love the Italian wine and the 8 ounce glass. The crostini's and the kale salad are a must. The pomodoro sauce must have crack in it. The manager treats you like a new friend. Totally underrated. I've been going for years.

i chose the restaurant based on its menu and the assumption that since it is an "enoteca" it would have good wines. Food was very good for its kind but the wine by the glass list was very mediocre and disappointing. Nice spot for outdoor dining, however and up and coming area of Lower Haight.

This is the first restaurant I’ve got back to since COVID started that I thought, “Wow, they’ve gone downhill.” Seated next to dish room when restaurant was largely empty, served moldy bread, and team was understaffed, slow, and seemed confused.

Tasted bread accompanying burrata peach salad was burnt- pasta with broccoli and cream was fine, but nothing special. Meatballs were…dense.

Emilio is great--friendly, efficient, professional, knows his food and wine and how to run Uva like a well-oiled machine. The chopped salad is amazingly delicious--so well done, perfectly prepared, clean and lightly dressed, and (you'd be surprised) delicious-- yes, a salad. We ordered pasta (orecchiette, boar lasagne, and the rigatoni pomodoro) were hearty and pretty much divine--and a serving of meatballs (three) that everyone tasted and rated excellent.
Their prosecco has the most refreshing hint of green apple surrounded by lively, crisp bubbles--that makes a really nice complement to dinner, especially during the long days of summer's end and early fall.

I have been here many times over the years and always returned for the wonderful cheese platters. In the past they had many cheeses (and meats) to choose from and you picked 3 or more, according to the size platter you ordered. The cheese/meat was served with nuts, honey, baguette and beautifully presented. This time there were no options, no nuts, and the presentation was lacking. What we received was one good soft cheese (didn’t catch the name), spreadable cheese in a bowl that was fine but reminiscent of grocery store cream cheese with herbs, and provolone. I’ve gotta say I’ve never seen provolone on a cheese platter. There was good baguette, honey in a small bowl, and unknown sweet jam (not fig). $22. We also ordered the beet starter, which was a bowl of pickled beets with some cheese sprinkled on top. My husband liked his sausage orecchiette. wine by the glass is a good value. I was sorry to see such disappointing change and don’t know if I’ll return. The waiter was curt. I hope it’s a post-pandemic temporary dip in quality.

I found this restaurant through the Internet having never been there before. When we pulled up outside it looked rather daunting but the food was very good. Little in the way of ambience and with a high noise level they somehow manage to create lovely Italian dishes

Shared a Margherita pizza and stuffed shells - both delicious. Nice outdoor booth setup with dividers between the booths. They turned on the heater close to our table as soon as we sat down, which was essential as it was a typical breezy late afternoon.

We loved the heated parklet setup. The siding kept us out of the wind and the vents in the side ensured we received good air circulation w/o making it too cold. The heaters kept us warm. Food was wonderful and comforting. The neighborhood vibe was an added benefit we would have missed inside. The service was top shelf.

I made a reservation for an outdoor table and requested a booth. Understandably, the host said booths were for parties larger than two. The booth was empty the entire time we were dining though, and as tables seemed to be reservation-only, I'm not sure why we weren't allowed there. Dining for two consists of tables on the sidewalk without ambiance or privacy. Service was great overall- waitstaff was attentive, but I miss pre-Covid when they would tell you about the wines and dishes. Also was told we had 1.5 hours total for our table, so we honored the time. While we were waiting for our credit cards after paying (and we waited 10-15 minutes), the host approached and briskly informed us we had to vacate the table, as if it were our fault that the other waiter hadn't brought us our final receipts and returned our cards. I won't be going back there again anytime soon. It was one of my favorite places before the pandemic - I have been dining there 10+ years. Hopefully, the experience will improve as people adjust to post-Covid interactions.

It’s my birthday this week so we reserved a table at Uve and took the trip into San Francisco from Sonoma for dinner to celebrate. It was quite cold and windy but we had reserved a table outside as we’re not fully vaccinated yet. This restaurant had great reviews, and looked like it had a nice covered parklet. I just want to share with other diners that if there’s only two of you, you will not be seated inside the parklet, but at an uncovered table on the sidewalk. So if you have to be outside, you will want to make a reservation with two additional friends to access the premium spots, because sitting out in the cold on the sidewalk is no fun. To be fair, these are the accommodations that restaurants have to make during Covid, and not everybody has access to fabulous outdoor space. But it made for a mighty uncomfortable dinner, and we were disappointed that they didn’t allocate any spots inside the protected area for smaller parties. The vegetable appetizers we had were very good; the roasted cauliflower and the kale salad especially, but both yummy and excellent. The two pizzas we ordered (the mushroom and the burrata) were undercooked, soggy, and bland. The pasta Pomodoro on the other hand was absolutely delicious. We might try again when are able to safely dine indoors, and simply focus on vegetables and pasta. Service was indifferent at best, but these are difficult times for most restaurants and employees. So, a mixed bag.
