VENTICELLOS deserves a Michelin Star for for its creativity and flavors & the Legion of Merit medal for THE MOST GRACIOUS SERVIC.
Especially Tim & the Mr Ciba modem
Consistently reliable Nob Hill gem ESPECIALLY if you’re known to them!
Well run operation in spite of the fact you’re kept waiting in spite of having a reservation!
We went here for my partner's birthday because it's only blocks from our apartment. We have been living in the neighborhood for several years, but we've always opted for Venticello's sister restaurant, Nob Hill Cafe, also on Taylor Street, a few blocks away. In short: Venticello has the better ambiance, it's more romantic, and you can make reservations with them. However, we both agreed, Nob Hill Cafe is better in terms of the quality and portions of the food and the service. Our waiter at Venticello was absent from most of our meal and didn't check in to see if we wanted anything more (pepper, cheese, a refill on our empty drinks). We left feeling disappointed, particularly in the service -- given the price is more than Nob Hill Cafe but with little added value. We will likely stick to Nob Hill Cafe when needed nearby Italian moving forward.
Venticello has a cozy atmosphere, superb, unobtrusive but attentive service and fabulous food.
This is a great neighborhood Italian restaraunt with cozy ambiance and attentive service. The food is great and I've come back here 5 times in my last 6 months.
Always come when we are in the city. Great ambiance and Great food!!
Thank you, Bob S.
I'm a fan of the Venticello, and I never miss a chance to get a dinner there every time I go to SF, either alone or not (ok, that's an average of... every two years, Europe is a long way from SF). That time however, we've been disappointed: very slow service (we were not in a hurry, but 2 hours for an entrée and a desert...), rather small serves, and above all too busy and such very noisy. Anyway, I probably come back next time.
It was New Year’s Eve. Our reservation was at 9:30pm but they informed us they wouldn’t be ready until 9:45pm. There was a noticeable and significant lull in between courses. Once we were done with the course, our plates were cleared, but we waited at least 15-20 minutes for the next course. I am not sure if they were extremely busy for the holiday and just trying to catch up. The food was delicious.
Excellent new year’s eve at Venticello’s.
Venticello is consistently good and great for the neighborhood. There isn't a bad item on the menu and service is consistently fine, and often good.
