I had an excellent late lunch ( 1.30 p.m. reservation ) here a little over a month ago and as I was making a reservation today to eat there again next week, I thought I should praise how enjoyable a dining experience it is to go there. The dining room, towards the back , beyond the bar, is modern but... More

We ate dinner in this restaurant last Friday night with couple of friends visiting from Italy. They were very impressed with quality and taste of their food. I would recommend it and would go there if we visit San Francisco.

What a delight! Recommended by friends and it did not disappoint! Food was excellent at all levels. The staff were friendly and helpful and our entire experience something to remember! Noisy but not intrusive. The pappardelle with short ribs, the risotto, the veal dish and everything just to die for!

An expensive authentic Italian food with a flair. For the five us our bill totaled $330.00 which did include a bottle of Dolcetto DogliaAbbona for $56.00. We were seated in the upper level which is away from the crowd, however, if atmosphere is important this upper level is not for you. One of the owners came to our table and... More

Had a terrific dinner last night with family and friends. The service was outstanding and the dishes even better. Starters at our table included tuna with a blood orange vinaigrette- light and fresh, the burrata was terrific, and someone ordered a half order of the lemon ravioli with asparagus as a starter. This was light and unique and delicious. For... More

For a sexy night out go to Perbacco and share entrees. They will gladly split the plates and it was fabulous! We had the octopus starter, beef short rib pappardelle (to die for) and Kurbata pork chop. This was enough to enjoy and not be too full. Our server was so attentive and personable. Highly recommend reservations as this place... More

Our group had the charred avocado salad, risotto, veal, pork chop and octopus, and all were outstanding. Nice downtown atmosphere and good attention from the waitstaff. Highly recommend.

They accommodated us with a very last minute reservation at 9:45pm which was fantastic. Everything was excellent including the service. Our pasta meals were fresh and delicious. Would highly recommend.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
