Well I have :) We were in SF for T-giving weekend and had talked about an AMAZING Italian place we happened into years earlier with our young daughters and now as... More

After a long day of touring SF, we wanted to sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice dinner in Little Italy. Piazza Pellegrini looked cute and caught our eye. Wish we had known that they were really having a bad day. The fault lies exclusively at the hands of our waiter. We were seated rather quickly, and it took some... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff, plenty of food, but nothing spectacular. Some veggies were probably from the can.

I went here a few months ago and enjoyed a nice steak special. I had planned to return here and enjoy another good meal, but the prices were outrageous this time. There were no good specials, in fact the special prices were more expensive than most places regular prices. After looking at the menus we left without ordering.

Arrived early evening as the place was getting ready for dinner, we sat outside on the pavement in the warm sunshine people watching. We were the first people there, we split a smoked salmon pizza (outstanding) and had a decent measure of well priced prosecco and an equally well priced local Syrah which was delicious. Highly recommend this place. It... More

Waiter never came back to check on us after food was delivered. No refills on water. When we brought this to the attention of the manager he could not have cared less. He said he saw us eating and assumed the food was fine...it was not.

Thank Mandy M

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
