"Really enjoyed our meal. Oddly, while the reviews praised the bread, we were not impressed. But that's such a small part of the experience. Highly recommend this restaurant."

"My dining companion and I had planned what we had hoped would be a relaxing and pleasant experience at this restaurant. The hostess/waitress caused me to do something I have never done before in my life--leave no tip.
We arrived a few minutes early for our 6 p.m. reservation and were greeted coldly by the hostess. The menu suggested asking about any specials. There are none, we were told. My companion ordered the ravioli, which she said was good. I ordered the salmon with English peas. No peas were noticeable on the plate, and so I asked the waitress about them. “In the rice,” she said. I came across four peas!!! No big deal, but I wasn’t clear as to why they bothered mentioning them on the menu.
No bread was offered, and we would have liked some, but as the waitress never came back, we let it go. Apparently, bread is an extra item--a couple of dollars or something like that.
As she took our plates, she asked about another glass of wine. We said no, but we would like some coffee.
I don’t know if they serve desserts, but we were not offered a dessert menu--just the bill. I think we would have enjoyed a little extra coffee and perhaps a dessert, but as neither were offered, we just paid the bill and left. We felt as though we were hustled through, probably to make the table available for more customers.
A minor point: I would want the waitress to be comfortable, but wearing an outdoor down vest type of jacket the whole time seemed a little strange, especially for a restaurant that advertises their dress code as “casual smart.” Not a big issue at all, but just seemed to add to the uncaring attitude.
The place soon filled up, and so it must be a popular place. Perhaps the waitress was having a bad day and we were just unfortunate. Anyway, a long anticipated, but disappointing evening.

"We went for Christmas Eve dinner. My three picky teenage children were raving. I'm from New York and never find food out here that I think is as good - this place was. Small, warm and casual environment. Highly recommend!"

"This place was a wonderful little spot, tiny but sweet and perfect for a reunion dinner with a few friends. The food was exquisite and authentic and was exactly like most of the wonderful spots I'd dine while traveling in Italy. The service was authentic Italian, he was attentive while leaving you completely alone for most of the time, yet making sure you were happy and ready with your order. Great little place tucked away in the hills of San Francisco."

"we always passed this restaurant and finally stopped by: its part of a small hotel, cozy with great potential. the real fault was with the waitress, very disengaged, hardly any passion for food exuded, could have been a much better experience since the food was very good."

"Service was excellent and the food was divine. Will be dining here again for sure. A hidden Italian gem in Nob Hill that is great for small groups or dates."

"I found this place simply via OpenTable. I wanted a place close to the Masonic Center. What a great find. The atmosphere is authentic Italian. I had a seafood pasta dish. My wife had spaghetti carbanara. Both were great. We would go there again."

"This was a second visit with three friends who wanted a quiet place to talk and enjoy good basic Italian cooking. We found it on a Monday night. The experience could not have been better. The salad greens were fresh, the pasta and polenta were made that day and the wine list more than acceptable. This place deserves attention for those who live in the Nob Hill area. We will be returning in due course."

"The food was outstanding how ever the service left something to be desired. To start off with we were handed a loaf of what we through was complimentary bread, like most restaurants do, only to find out when we got the bill that we were charged $2 for it. The sitting area in the restaurant is very small and there were always two servers sitting behind the bar, we had to call them over to order, to clear our plates, and to pay the bill, they didn't refill any of our drinks including water and they didn't even ask how the food was until we had to call them over to take our plates away. They just sat behind the bar the whole time messing around on their phones. Ridiculously poor service for any restaurant to have."

"Truly a neighborhood gem. Loved it. The food was excellent - specifically the Veal Marsala. Very accomodating as we were running late and had to move our reservation to later. Tiny restauarant with great atmosphere and great food. Wonderful place to enjoy a fine meal and wine."
