Our group had the charred avocado salad, risotto, veal, pork chop and octopus, and all were outstanding. Nice downtown atmosphere and good attention from the waitstaff. Highly recommend.

They accommodated us with a very last minute reservation at 9:45pm which was fantastic. Everything was excellent including the service. Our pasta meals were fresh and delicious. Would highly recommend.

We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed the ambiance here. The Vitello Tonnato was just delicious and the pasta with porcini and pork so flavorful. The pork chop was tender, moist and a large portion. Also the service was excellent. Definitely a wonderful Italian restaurant.

We've been going to Perbacco for many years. Especially if we needed a place to go with kids and still enjoy our food. Kids had gnocchi and pasta, I had salmon crudo (really good) and duck breast. My duck was a bit overdone but skin was crispy and so flavorful that I didn't mind. Good consistent performance

Returned to this restaurant after a great meal a few years ago. Sadly, we were presented with average main courses and appetizers at our table. Excellent wine steward provided the proper wine at desired price. A great bar while you wait.

This was our first visit to Perbacco. We often eat Italian food in San Francisco - I would rate this one very high. The food was excellent, all four of us were delighted with our appetizers and entrees. They make their own pasta and the sauces do delight! One of us didn't go for the pasta, but the quail instead...

My wife's salad and my beer salad was delicious. Both her pasta with rib meet and my ravioli were delicious although I could have wished for a slightly larger portion. Skipped dessert. I had iced tea and get irritated when they don't keep it filled which was the case here but staff were nice

For one of the best fine dining venues in a city renowned for its cuisine, Perbacco needs to step up its game. Our server, Jamie, was inattentive at best, and the risotto app and scallop entree were under-seasoned and bland. I'll return, but with hopes for better attention to detail.

From the maitre'd to the waitress and bus boys, an incredibly friendly staff. The black sea bass was perfection and my partner's ravioli tasted homemade. Given the quality of the food and service, I thought the prices were a good value.

Perbacco has delicious modern Italian cuisine. I had the beef tartar and braised short rib and I couldn't be happier. Though the martinis weren't that big, the food definitely made up for it!

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
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, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
