Upscale, modern Italian menus & wine
Italian · Lower Pacific Heights · $$$$
The Zagat Review
"Sensational" Italian dishes, including "outrageously good" pastas, pair with "noteworthy" wines from the Boot at this A16 sibling in Lower Pac Heights, which consistently "nails the risks it takes" in the kitchen; "truly impressive" service helps justify the "splurge" , and while the "elegant-shoebox" setting is undeniably "tight" , there’s an "amazing" chef’s counter and even "sitting at the bar" is a "joy."

Giving it 3-stars based on my visit last week. It was a Tuesday evening. We didn’t have a reservation but we took a table outside that was available. We didn’t mind the little chill in the air. However, we did mind the very slow service and lack of attention from the staff. I understand that kitchen can get busy and sometime it takes longer. No big deal. But it was a battle to get anyone’s attention to even get our water glasses filled or order a second drink while we waited. And even when it was done, it just took way too long. In the end, the tasty food wasn’t good enough to make up for it. And two of the three mains weren’t at the optimal temperature. Seemed they waited a little before they arrived at the table. It was a little embarrassing to take out of town colleagues there. In the past I gave it 5-stars. I’ll consider changing it again after my next visit but I feel I’m being generous at this point.

Very good pasta dishes and fresh, bright salads. The service was fantastic from the help with pairings, navigating the right space and ensuring our glasses were never empty. Ate at the chef’s bar so we were constantly engaged with the cooking of the meals which was done with a very careful attention to detail.

First time having dinner and I would certainly recommend and come back. We had a dish that was particularly a bit too salty and the server immediately rectified the situation by offering a replacement dish. Our server was fabulous, attentive and efficient. Chicken liver mousse... yum!
