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.

This was our first time dining outdoors since the beginning of this pandemic, and this restaurant did a great job at keeping people safe and distanced. The food was also very delicious. We will be back again!

Nice service. Limited menu items. Salad has little flavor. Eggplant dish was very small and a little over salted. Bread was dry and stale. Would not go back.

A friend recommended Uva, and he is an Italophile, (is that a real word). If he rated it worthy, happy to give it a try. Not disappointed. Great, focused wine selection. The pizza with honey clover was stupendous and subtle., even with chile flakes. The stuffed shells were great, and the tomato sauce was incredible. Like Marcella Hazan incredible.

Been waiting about a year to get back to Uva Enoteca. Friends and I were supposed to meet up before the first COVID shutdown but precautions made us cancel. My friend was thrilled when I suggested it. We ordered the cold roasted cauliflower salad, the sausage orecchiette and the mushroom pizza with a bottle of Pinot. Loved everything. We're hearty eaters but there was no room for dessert that night. Nice chat with our waiter as to how things are going for them too. Both of us were surprised how low the tab was even with a bottle of wine so we'll be back soon!

We really enjoyed the food here. Would only hope the restaurant could provide umbrellas or shading to those uncover seats, so the diners didn’t need to eat under the rain. It was drizzling the day we ate here, so it’s still okay for us.

The service was great, even on a rainy day. The seating area had heat and most of them were under an outdoor cover. Highly recommend saving room for the desert.

Service was terrible. We were essentially asked to leave so the host could give our table to his next reservation even though several other tables were open. Rude host and very poor customer experience.

I love this place and I came multiple times. 4 star and not 5 this time because the dishes were burning hot and not as good as last time (maybe avoid lasagna and eggplants ?)
I’ll come back I think it was bad luck

I come to Uva Enoteca fairly often. The food is terrific and a good value, and it has a lovely, cozy ambiance. Their outdoor dining situation is what it is given the circumstances, so I won't hold that against them. There are service issues whether indoor or out. So if you don't mind rolling the dice on service, it is a neighborhood favorite.

Hi and thank you for dining with us. In regards to our staff using the bathroom they certainly did use the bathroom, but it was to clean it with disinfectant as we do every 2 hours for safety purposes. Please pass along to your friend. Boris

It was Valentine’s Day and we waited about 45 minutes for our entrees just to find out that they were cold. It seemed like they just microwave the food... I got the lasagna it was hot in some parts but ice cold in the middle.

The best happy hour menu and prices in town. My first choice whenever out of town friends come to visit. Can't beat the service either. Worth splurging on the Chocolate Budino or the Torta di Ricotta dessert options even if you think you are too full - I guarantee you will not be able to resist finishing either one of them.
