On a beautiful Saturday in February al fresco dinning at its best. Terrific service and wonderful food. The smells and the presentation were classic Italian. We had one of the best margarita pizzas ever and chioppino full of crab mussels clams and fish with a...More

We had a great meal and night at Piazza Pellegrini. Service was good despite busy restaurant on Valentines Day. Special chicken involtini was the best. Highly recommended as it was also a quick walk from Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel.

Rude staff, poor service, some dishes we ordered were not correct, to top it off food was ordinary. Real shame with all of the restaurants around Little Italy.

Casual. Welcoming. Felt like home. Loved the food. The calamari and shrimp antipasti was wonderfully tender and easily fed the three of us. The chicken parmigiana came in a wonderfully fresh tomato sauce with just enough spices. Wonderfully done. Looking forward to a return trip...More

Get the Gorgonzola gnocchi here! Sooo yummy! I've had gnocchi in Italy and this is very much on that level. Excellent view when you sit outside. Be sure to go during the non-lunch hours for quick service and excellent staff.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
