We have been to Mescolanza when it was located further out on the avenues. They have a new chef and the food is still good but the pizza was a disappointment. We started with a complimentary eggplant appetizer with a very garlicky pesto. Which is fine is you like garlic but if you don't it overwhelms. We shared the antipasto... More

Upon a recommendation from local friends, three of us tried this restaurant on a recent trip to San Francisco. Though it is not in the "heart" of the city, it's worth looking for. The staff is friendly and attentive and the food delicious. I had the Calamari steak, and another in our group had Angel Hair Pasta with added chicken.... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much, surprised why the selection and quality. My wife had the gnocchi, I had the veal piccata...we both shared a beef carpaccio and the creme caramel. It is truly a "neighborhood gem"

This was the first visit for three of us. Highly recommended by friends and the staff and menu did not disappoint. We chose the calamari steak, linguine carbanara, and angel hair pasta with requested chicken breast added. They were happy to accommodate. Check out their website for full menu. There is a nice selection of wines to add to the... More

We absolutely LOVED our experience at Mescolanza! We learned of the restaurant from the show 'Check Please Bay Area' and we're so glad we had the chance to try it out this past weekend. The restaurant is attractive, the wait staff was very attentive and friendly, and with one exception, the food was fantastic! We very much enjoyed both the... More

My wife and I have been to Mescolanza many times over many years. The food and service has always been consistently good. The food specials change each week or so and the daily menu offers excellent choices, including some of the best homemade pastas. The wine list offers many good values in domestic and Italian wines.

Menu/cuisine as in Lucca. Three of us ate -- 2 veal piccatas and one veal marsala. Simple dinner with bread and butter, no wine. Veal cooked perfectly, lemon/butter/caper sauce on the piccata was a perfect balance, marsala also delicious. Served with a variety of vegetables. For dessert: CIOCCOLATA CON AMARETTI chocolate flan with amaretto and crushed amaretti cookies, and Scoops... More

As per other reviews, this restaurants location is currently incorrect (requested update. Very good traditional Italian. We had a large group of 11 of us but were easily accommodated. I had the special Penne Alla Arabaciata, which was very good. Not a massive amount, but a properly sized portion, some may prefer larger plates or could order starters etc. Very... More

I am so glad that Mescolanza is back, they're now on the corner of Geary Blvd. and Second Avenue. This restaurant used to be on Clement Street, between 24th and 23rd Avenue. They had to close in 12/2014, I think they lost their lease. I was so happy to see they reopened in their new location. They now can seat... More
