Venticello

Tucked away atop Nob Hill, Venticello Ristorante, is one San Francisco’s best kept secrets. With quaint tables, a wood burning oven and views of the bay, Venticello provides a warm intimate atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Tuscan Farmhouse.
Recognized as one of the most romantic restaurants in San Francisco, we are located just a few blocks away from the historical Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels, as well as walking distance from the Huntington Hotel, The Stanford Court, and the Ritz- Carlton Hotel.
As you walk into Venticello, you will enter our upstairs area. Our full and complete wooden bar is supplied with an array of distilled spirits as well as some of the finest Italian and Californian wines. This allows you and your guests to enjoy a variety of beverages while hearing the Cable Car bell ring just outside our front door.
Venticello, meaning soft breeze, will sweep you and your guests away with an unforgettable experience.

"We stopped in and decided to get half portions of each of the four pastas on the menu. Two were outstanding - the salsiccia and the carbonara. The others were fine, but not worth ordering. They also had some good wines by the glass, including a prosecco we really enjoyed. I'd definitely recommend dropping by - we plan to go again soon."

"Really delicious food. This was my second time at this restaurant, and I'll definitely be returning again. I'd particularly recommend the pear pizza as a shared appetizer, as well as anything else on the menu!!!"

"My GF and I were quite amazed to get reservations at Venticello the Saturday before the Super Bowl. The City was jammed with party goers but I think since the restaurant is somewhat 'hidden' and not in the immediate vicinity of the Embarcadero, it probably was safe from the crazy crowds.
We read many reviews and I think in general, the reviews were pretty much on. The food is good but not great. It you want a romantic atmosphere for you and your sweetie, this is the place. Very comfortable and the service was solid. We started with a Caesar salad (was nothing special but good) then split the Pappardelle noodles with duck ragu. It was good...but one might say it needed a bit of "oomph" to spice it up. Very tender duck and lots of onions (cooked)...maybe more garlic and some hot chili flakes would have amped the dish up. The noodles were perfectly done.
We skipped dessert and I had a cappuccino...now that was good! All in all a nice evening out (we rode the cable car to/from the place)...alhough my GF elected to walk in her 4 1/2" stiletto heeled boots a chunk of the way...steep hills! :-)"

"Venticello provided a great overall experience and some tasty dishes. The service was also excellent (we were cared for by Seamus). This is a nice neighborhood gem with romantic ambiance and a nice wine list - great for date or anniversary. My favorite dish was the gnocchi with Gorgonzola, it was delicately prepared, rich and fun."

"We went for my husband's birthday and it was so nice to converse in normal voices. My husband ordered the kale salad which after tasting I would go back often just for that salad! Pizza was generous. only minus is cocktail's are pricey. Nice range of prices for the wine."

"There were two of us dining at Venticello on a fairly quiet evening. Most of the dishes were had were very good (lamb shank, carpaccio, polenta, bread). The veal scallopini fell short and the salted caramel ice cream was superb."

"My wife and I had tickets to SF Jazz and made an early reservation to allow for our on-time arrival to the concert. The reviews we read in advance steered us in the right direction. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived and were promptly seated. Out waiter was attentive throughout our meal, but did not hover. It was early, so the place was quiet, which only added to the charm.
We both had pasta, and while I really enjoyed mine with the duck ragu, my wife's choice of pasta with the spicy fennel sausage was truly outstanding. She had the black kale salad beforehand, and it was delicious - a very subtle vinaigrette accompanied it. They had a special cream of tomato soup, and I chose that as my first course. It was as advertised, creamy, seasoned impeccably, and definitely not your mama's Campbell soup!
I enjoyed a very flavorful raspberry sorbetto for dessert; again my wife one-upped me with her chocolate cake/torte selection. It was decadent. All in all, a great night, and we made our concert with time to spare! We'll return soon..."

"My wife and I made reservations for new years eve. We arrived and I noticed that it was a very intimate setting. The food was well prepared and the wait staff was extremely attentive. If you are looking for a romatic restraunt to impress that special someone I would recommend this place."

"Been coming here for years. Outstanding pasta and one of the best pizzas you will have in San Francisco. Not a huge menu, be sure to go online and review. Ample pasta, pizza and house specialty items. Reservations a MUST. You will not be disappointed, the Carbonara is absolutely one of the best that I've ever had. Good house wines as well."

"we have eaten at venticellos several times, and the past couple times met with the same disinterested staff, poor service, and pricey dinner. we had the same waiter this time as last. he was brusque and irritated by questions about the specials. he would get to that in a few minutes. even the bus boy was unpleasant - flat affect, no humor. i was told by another of the staff that my lukewarm coffee had steam coming from it?? really??? and i don't like scalding hot coffee either. the salted carmel gelato was the only "sweet" deal of the night. we WON't be going back."
