Spent over good wines and foods. The Brushetta and Capellini was very good. Be forewarned, my wife and I split the Capellini and is was more than enough! Very generous servings. Kudos to Amy our server for her patients. We were a large group and...More

The food was tasty and the portions huge - definitely consider splitting ($2 charge). Service was quick and efficient. Only complaint was that the soup was not as hot as we expected, but still very nice. We didn't split, so no room for dessert unfortunately.

This restaurant was part of the Hotel Abri where I was staying. The Hotel and Restaurant were excellent. Staff at the restaurant were friendly and professional and service was excellent. My pasta meal was top notch!

We ordered Pasta with clams and Pork chops, which both turns out to be way above our expectations. The clams were fresh and sweet, pasta was al dente. Pork chop was surprisingly juicy and well seared. Service could be better but definitely above average.

Arrived late evening, counted 10 open tables yet they said there was a 25 minute wait. Could get a reservation that was within 10 minutes. They wanted you to drink at the bar before serving you. We walked.

If you're looking for good Italian food at a decent price in downtown SF, would definitely recommend. Good wine selection. Food's good/atmosphere nice. Although prefer the North Beach places, if you're craving Italian & don't want to take the trip, this is a good option....More
