Music was too loud - causing guests to yell which was very unpleasant

Great neighborhood gem within walking distance of son's apartment-hooray. We were seated earlier than our reservation, very nice, at a warm table in the back. We began with 3 interesting cheeses and some delicious olives. Wine came in 8 oz sizes, great for enjoying during the whole meal, nice reds to choose from. Three of us just had to order the wild boar lasagna, since our family hails from the Bologna area and cingale is very well known there and different that anything else we get here. Very rich and very good. The fourth person got the kale pizza and it was pretty good. We will definitely be back. Good waiter, too :)

Very good creative and tasty food, nice attentive but not annoying service, tasty wine. Great place for a meal with a friend. A bit noisy but conversation is still possible. My second time, and will come again. Feels like a rare find in SF

Very romantic vibes when you first walk in. Dim lighting and most 2 person tables. Wait staff is friend and attentive but forget often. Wasn’t a rush hour so not sure how they could forgot someone of 1/3 I’d the tables there.

We have been coming here for years. It's a great spot for a nice casual dinner. We were there for happy hour which is also always great. The spicy salame pizza was super tasty. Our waiter was super friendly and the only thing I would say could have been better is the bread they serve with the cheese. It was super dry and dense.

Perhaps we ordered the wrong items. Both the octopus dish and baked eggplant with cheese were unappetizing. The little gem salad was ok but the lettuce seemed a bit wilted. The beet salad with ricotta tasted more like dessert and was cloyingly sweet. We were disappointed after reading such great reviews.

We took a friend to SF to see Hairspray (it was fabulous too!). We made reservations for an early dinner afterward. Two of us had the arugula salad to start with and one had the baby gem salad. We all loved the salads! I had the octopus main (delicious!) and pasta and pizza were the other dishes. My friends loved their food as well. Service was great; the wine recommendation was amazing! Highly recommend this place!

Got the group meal (> 6 people) for the first time. Food was good, but we only got one of each dish, so splitting it 6 ways didn’t feel like each person got much.. but, it was reasonably priced at $30 and still high whality

We got seated right away on a Saturday night at 8pm. Serving sizes are good sized, we were able to split a pizza and salad between the two of us. Ambiance is nice, service was pretty quick. We were happy with our meal.

Attentive service. Food arrived quickly and it was well prepared and delicious. We ordered a few dishes that had tomato sauce that was tasty but perhaps the waitstaff could have helped us balance our meal a bit.

We made reservations for eight and the day before we added two more and UVA could. Not have been nicer or more accommodating. It is a small place and two more may not seem like a lot but it was and we really appreciated their help.

I absolutely adore Uva Enocteca. This restaurant has been my neighborhood "spot" for years - it's a hidden gem. They have the most outstanding flavors in San Francisco (the smoked burrata is to-die-for) and a delightfully warm, cozy vibe. I highly recommend the pasta pomodoro, corn salad, and the chocolate budino.

great venue but we went for a friend's birthday, marked it in the reservation, and they didn't do anything or bring anything out for her which was quite a bummer

This neighborhood restaurant always delivers a very good experience. The menu is unique as Italian restaurants go and the food is consistently quite good to excellent. The pizzas are well made and unusual and the crostinis are always a treat as starters. It can get noisy when the smallish restaurant fills up. Good choice of reasonably priced Italian wines.

The marinara sauce was too salty; our waiter was efficient but not very friendly. Prices were reasonable. I’ll give it another chance.
