We took an early afternoon break after a day of walking nearby neighborhoods. The cool Racer 5 IPA's paired nicely with a section of marinated olives and a tasty selection of bruschetta including Roasted Pepper, Marinated Brussels Sprouts, and Tuscan Chicken Liver. Convenient downtown location...More

Both of us had the same dish, and we both LOVED it. The wine was good too. We did not have appetizers or dessert, so there is nothing more to say.

Good mix of excellent food, attentive but not overbearing service, relaxed atmosphere and reasonably-priced offerings. Far betterr than some ofthe other "name" Italian places in SF.

Completely different atmosphere from Perbacco, the fine dining restaurant next door, which is also very good. Sit at the bar at Barbacco, and you will get perfect service, at least we did (dinner on a weeknight). Much more casual than Perbacco, with food more like...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
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,
