We had great expectations for this place but only the pasta dishes were tasty. The asparagus burrata was ok, the ahi tuna had no flavor and the pizza was very average and way too expensive. Service was very good so I will give this place...More

This is a fun restaurant in Russiona Hill. The portions are good for sharing. We split the Arugula salad and a Salsicca pizza. We were there on a Sunday night and it was almost full. Both indies and outside dining. Friendly, prompt service.

Hadn't booked, but they fitted us in no problem, although was midweek so that might have helped. The waitress helpfully suggested a 14" pizza would be plenty for both of us to share and it sure was, just couldn't manage the 8th slice between us...More

Simple food with a modern twist - so fresh and delicious! We had the prosciutto melon salad, margerita pizza (soo good) and paperadelle. All perfect! Pizza is a oven cooked with flat base so really light. Highly recommend for a casual night out with friends...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential

Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,

and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
