There seem to be no tomatoes in sight at Perbacco. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, and they also expanded my definition of Italian fare. We had the octopus and sausage appetizers, followed by papardelle with short ribs and 5 hour roasted pork with pasta. Both...More

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

historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
