We sat outside for our dinner ( very rare in San Francisco) and enjoyed a perfect pasta dish ( homemade pasta with tomato sauce and sausage) and a great burrata pizza. Good amount to share We had the chocolate mousse for dessert, perfect to finish a good dinner! Nice waiter , very helpful and friendly.

My wife and I were walking around in this trendy area and decided we needed a snack. On the outside, the restaurant is very nice and attractive. On the inside, beautiful interior with a separate bar/dining area. I love the bench seating with the pillows for back support. We shared an order of Bruschetta and a salad with fresh tomatoes,...

Beautiful dining room. The trompe l'oiel ceiling is hand painted. Food was fantastic. We shared an appetizer and entree. The cheesecake was a delightful small size. Enough to enjoy the indulgence.

The food was average at best and expensive. We were very disappointed in the service and they weren't even really busy. We will not go back

Room for the restaurant is very inspiring with typical paintings. Food is also good level. I recommend this restaurant as well as Pacific Height area.

I had some days in SF being in a conference and this was my first meal. Everything is expensive in SF, but at least I was looking for good food and a glass of good wine. I got both in this restaurant. Good service. A bit expensive for what you get, but to be expected (see my next reviews).

We stopped here to get out of the rain before meeting family at another spot. The wait staff was friendly, a very nice venue. When we asked about one of the wines, we were offered a taste. We had a pleasant half hour. May be back for dinner in the future.

Went there with my wife, son, and 3 year old grandson. Had to wait 15 minutes to get water. The waiter kept saying he will be right back. Asked for bread sticks for the child 3 times before we got them. Ordered 2 small pizzas, a burger, and an side of fries. I told the waiter twice no mayo on... More

Food here was good - the mussels appetizer was flavorful (although one mussel had some sand), the burrata salad was fresh, and the prosciutto was very good (would've been even better with a bit more prosciutto). Wine list was very overpriced, so we settled for 2 glasses of a nice Chianti.

A friend we were traveling with insisted on going here specifically for the deviled eggs. The dish lived up to the billing but, interestingly, when we ordered a second batch, the presentation was totally different. The rest of the food we had was good also, although they left an ingredient out of a salad...(new cook?)

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
