Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our order was not satisfied entirely (1 course missing); pasta was over-cooked and Cheese-Cake was too cheesy without any real crunchy-dough! Coffe is not really italian style. Finally, Apple-pay was not accepted due to not expected internet issues. Bad service level with no customer proximity.../ understanding!More

Oh my - this is so lovely. When we arrived we were told we were sat at the best table and we were - in a corner adjacent to each other. Perfect. Thank you! An incredibly extensive menu but we stuck to the specials and...enjoyed the seabass risotto and scallops (huge) with ravioli. Super service, lovely ambience, delicious creative food. It’s a super restaurant! Definitely on our to return to list and highly recommend.More

Was in SF attending a conference and asked our concierge to recommend a good Italian place. It was a short (but uphill!) walk from our hotel and the experience was lovely! Great bread with balsamic,garlic, olive oil dip to start. I enjoyed my ravioli which...was recommended by waiter over the gnocchi. Opted for the crème brûlée for dessert which was a bit overdone and the only reason why I didn’t get five stars.More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Fino on a Monday evening. The service was great and the food was better. Wife had linguine bolognese and raved about affogato, a dessert with espresso and vanilla bean gelato. I had a fantastic fettuccine carbonara...that made me wish I had two stomachs so I could eat another order. Can’t recommend this place enough.More

We visited SF as a family, looking for an Italian restaurant. All four of us love Italian food. We are kind of picky but gave this restaurant a try. A bit suspicious because of all the good ratings, too good to be true?? But, we...were surprised to say that least. Food and service was excellent. Three of had pasta and one chicken. We also shared appetizers and a couple of desserts. So, good. Our waiter was so nice, kind of quiet, worked without making too much of a fuss. 5 stars for him.More

Managed a late booking yesterday evening. The food was excellent, we even managed a crème brûlée at the end. Excellent service by Susan and the lady who was front of house. Best Italian we have had whilst on our trip to the US. Thank you...and would highly recommend.More

We went for a celebratory dinner after watching Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. Our meal was phenomenal from start to finish. Just as important was the spectacular service of our server, Susan. She really went above and beyond to make our wedding anniversary a...truly memorable one.More

Without a doubt, the Best Italian dinner I have ever had, anywhere! The restaurant is small and busy but we were able to get a table without a reservation. The service was excellent, the wine suggested was spot on and the linguine with bolognese was...Perfection. Finished with crème brûlée. I suggest anyone looking for an Italian dinner while in SF stop by Fino. You will not be disappointed.More

First time here and will now go every time we visit the city. Friendly, helpful staff and very flavorful food! Caesar salad excellent! Veal saltimbocca with mozzarella and avocado was delicious! Bolognese with fettuccine was out of this word! A must try is a traditional...Italian dessert Zabaglione. It’s not too sweet, warm, fluffy and so perfect over fruit.

I didn’t vacation with you. Not sure what recipe you need. If you’re looking for the olive oil balsamic dipping sauce recipe from Fino Bar & Ristorante in SF, you will have to contact them.
