Milano is one of our favorite restaurants for frequent trips to San Francisco. The food is excellent, the menu is varied and special courses provide even more variety. For dinner, the antipasti cover a good range of first courses - salads, small bites of Bruschetta....More

It feels more like a family run restaurant with great service & friendly/knowledgeable staff. The food was traditional & good. The wine list was also very good.

We had a great dinner at Ristorante Milano. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We had a party of 6 and although the space was small, we never felt cramped or rushed. My meal was fabulous and authentic Italian! I loved the neighborhood feel.

It's a fairly small room, but very pleasant. Aldo, the owner, is from Rome, where his father was a noted restauranteur. But Milano lives up to its northern Italian name. The daily specials offer variety, we've never been disappointed with the food or the wine....More

Lovely staff but food not great. Sup and grilled veg to start with followed by the seafood linguine which quite frankly was not edible. Husband had a plate of meat which whilst he enjoyed it didn't look nice.

Family of three enjoyed delicious pasta and veal dishes with fine wine. In addition to the great food, this Italian restaurant has a comfortable friendly ambience. We enjoyed good conversation with both waitstaff and other patrons.

Nice little neighborhood restaurant. My wife and I had a good meal but overall nothing spectacular. On the plus side, it has a small family run feel.

Lovely intimate Italian restaurant. I stopped on my walk back "home". I'd spent the day on a tour of Muir Woods and Sonoma/Napa wineries and this was the perfect place to stop relax and enjoy a well prepared meal. I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola...More

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Believe that the owner and at least some of the staff are fluent in Italian. The woman who waited on us last time spoke Italian. On some visits the waiters seemed strictly anglo but I could be wrong.
