The food was good, but nothing special. I had calamari, which was a bit undercooked. The waiter was exceptionally slow in bringing my drink, which came only half way into the meal.

This restaurant is outside the old SF Mint in the Plaza. Be sure to make reservations as it got packed on a Thursday evening. The menu is trendy but very tasty! Service is good; waiters offer suggestions if you have questions.

Wonderful menu--small but creative and choice. A rose wine from Northern Italy that you won't find anywhere else in the US.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
