We made reservations for 6 p.m. but arrived around 5:15 and were warmly greeted and seated. Happy hour goes till 6 and you don't have to sit at the bar to enjoy. Antipasti: Castelvetrano olives lightly marinated and with fennel were delicious and h.h. at $2.50 instead of $5. Bruschetta with chopped tomatoes and ricotta at h.h. $2.50 a piece... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat one night and trip advisor'd this place and just showed up with out a reservation. They said they were full up for the night but managed to get squeeze us in right away. The food was so good, and wait staff even better.

Years back I asked a close friend - he's 100% Italian :) - where to go for some good Italian food on a first date. Without hesitation he recommended Trattoria Contadina. Trattoria is the perfect representation of a high-quality, family owned/operated restaurant. We've come for random date nights, a birthday (8-10 people), when we have family in town, and every...

After reading other reviews we had to have dinner here. Very friendly staff and extra special service. The food was wonderful. They were busy but it didn't effect the pace of our meal. We ordered all the specials of the night and very happy! Tip: make a reservation, they do get busy. Ask for a window table so you can... More

Great food and service. Found after a stroll in Little Italy. Hidden gem. The caprese salad still makes me smile. It was heaven. Fresh pasta was delightful. Sauces were perfection and service was spot on.

Excellent Italian fare. Great veal scalopini and risotto. Good service, atmosphere. Excellent Caesar salad with anchovies. And don't miss the raspberry Cabernet sorbet.

Wow! What a great Italian restaurant! The decor is warm and homey. Service was great. Food was superb and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the burrata and meatballs for appetizers. We had all 3 salads on the menu and they were fresh and delicious. We've been to Italy 3 times and this was the best ravioli I've ever had! All six... More

My daughter picked this restaurant for her birthday dinner when visiting San Francisco. We made reservations ahead of time. The table was ready upon our early arrival. The restaurant was two story (which was a little hard for one in our party) and close quarters, but it was perfect otherwise. The service was amazing- especially our waitress Hannah. The food...

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
