Barbacco has amazing Italian food at a reasonable price. The dishes are perfect to share or as meal. The pastas are homemade and absolutely incredible. The Paccheri is amazing. The brussel sprouts are delicious. The salads, particularly the kale salad, are very good. Don't miss...More

We have been to Perbacco numerous times, and eaten in many great restaurants around the city. We ordered a handful of appetizers to share, and nothing stood out. Each dish was consistently mundane. The lasagna had no flavor at all, and my wife's chittara pasta...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

narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
