On the day after Christmas, on my husband's birthday, our family decided to visit Picco, long on our list because of it's reputation for freshly made risotto. I'll give some details but to summarize, it was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. Yes, you can order an entire dinner but sharing the plates, combined with the prompt,... More

Stopped here after cycle ride. Wanted a small lunch with a glass of wine and a view. We got that but the wine was some of the most expensive we had in all san francisco. So expensive we thought the menu must be wrong at almost $50 a bottle - it's only a cafe!! Food is snacky and ok. We... More

We just have a coffee here, but it was surprisingly good and tasty. And the vies from the bay are breathtaking.

The worse value Caprese salad ever. Tiny portion served with dry bread. It was a ripoff .dont bother with this even if you are tempted by the nice view.

We ate here after biking the bridge and were pleased we did. The view and atmosphere was great, as was the service and food. The pizza's were particularly good.

Great location on the waterfront and a good place to hang out with a beer or coffee on a fine day. Quite expensive for drinks though, and few tables.

Very expensive drinks, only two of the four meals ordered was correct. A tomato cheese panini, delivered as ham and artichoke. Soup vegetable instead of minestrone and very small and sour. Do yourself a favour buy food from a nearby store and sit on the wall next to this cafe.

Sitting outside with panoramic views is stunning. And the view is five star, the coffee again for coffee lovers is a must. However the food that we received wasn't great. While it came out in a timely fashion I was disappointed with the meals. I'm not sure why minestrone soup has now been reduced to a vegetable soup!!! The view,... More

Recommended by our tour guide, we tried Piccolo Caffe without consulting Trip Advisor == big mistake! The good: the sunny patio with a gorgeous view. The bad: the food, the service and the price. The $9 cup of chowder was thin and watery, and not warm. They made one panini wrong (we requested no cheese) and the guy tried to... More
