L'Ottavo - San Francisco

L’Ottavo Ristorante has delighted locals and visitors to San Francisco for 20 years with our authentic Italian cuisine. Our small family-run restaurant feels intimate, cozy and tucked away from hectic city life. At L’Ottavo, you can picture yourself stepping out of San Francisco and into a neighborhood restaurant in Rome where the food is consistently delicious, the service is friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is comfortable and unpretentious. Our menu offers chicken, veal, beef and fish dishes and an ample selection of delicious pasta. Our customers especially rave about our Homemade pasta, Lasagna, Veal Saltimbocca, Chicken with Marsala wine and Mushrooms, Lobster Ravioli and New York Steak, as well as our daily specials, which feature fresh selections from our local markets. Come visit us for old world Italian charm, a flavorful Italian meal and classic Italian wines. We are walking distance from Union Square, located near major hotels.

"We had a show at the Society Cabaret and made reservations at L'Ottavo for dinner. It is a very nice and cozy Italian restaurant on the edge of Union Square. We had homemade gnocci with mushrooms, peas and ham in a light tomato sauce, which was delicious and eggplant parmagiana which was also good. The service was very attentive and we will go here again when we have an event in the area."

"After looking up reviews on multiple sites, we chose to visit this italian restaurant. We had a mild case food poisoning after a shared anti pasta appetizer. Noting else was shared and identical reactions that kept us chained to our hotel room all night."

"Brought an international group of about 14 colleagues here for dinner on a Sunday night. I don't usually go out for Italian, but the people I brought were very happy with the selection of the food, beer, and wine. The food was quite satisfying in that homey way Italian joints often have. I wouldn't say it is a hot spot for foodies, but it is a good spot for comfort food and looked to be a good place to go with a smaller group or one other person if you want a relaxed, yummy dinner at a fair price. Given the location, it has a charm and low-key atmosphere that is hard to find in that neighborhood."

"Be prepared for a small intimate setting that is business and family friendly. The Bruschetta was among the very best we have enjoyed. There wine selection was very good and entrée portions are European right sized leaving room for dessert. Their tomato is very much like those Central Italy. We enjoyed their Tiramisu, Pistachio Italian Ice Cream, and the Almond Mocha Gelato with coffee."

"We were looking for some Italian food on our last night in San Francisco. L'Ottavo did not disappoint. The food here was excellent and everyone in our party loved their dish. The atmosphere was also quaint and quiet so it was easy to enjoy conversation."

"We enjoyed everything starting with the bruschetta appetizer and ending with the tirimisu which we shared. We will definitely return the next time we are in San Francisco. We were delighted that it was quiet enough to easily carry on a conversation with the friends across the table. The service was excellent."

"We arrived there. They didn't have the reservation. After 10 min waiting they confirmed the reservation, but said they didn't have tables, so we had to wait. After that we left. The lady working there was extremely rude and aggressive.
Don't go there. Never"
