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!

This is as upscale Italian restaurant which really lives up to its reputation. All the dishes we had were outstanding. A surprising feature was the relatively large portion of all the dishes.

We have been going to Perbacco since they first opened and the food and service keeps getting better each and every time. We've been there at least 15 times for lunch and dinner and the food never fails to completely impress. Today the gnocchi melted in your mouth and the other pasta a we ordered we just as wonderful. Excellent... More

I attended an event here this past week on the second floor. The food was surprisingly good for a group function. I had the chicken which was incredibly moist in a balsamic reduction. There was only a curtain separating our group from the second floor diners. It was so noisy it was difficult to hear people at our table. I... More

We had dinner on Saturday and it was crowded and noisy. You are practically rubbing elbows with guests at the adjacent tables and listening to their conversations. The menu selection and wine list are extensive. I had the beet salad, garganelli pasta with lamb ragu sauce, and glandula affoga for dessert. All were good, but nothing extraordinary or especially inspired.... More

Every time we come here we are delighted. Tonight the crudo was exceptional. The Rabatan with mushroom was delicious, especially with the great Amarone.

Unfortunately, our dinner experience at Perbacco was disappointing -- both the food and service. Our wait person was rather unpleasant and quite annoying throughout the dinner. It began with his not giving us a chance to look over the menu before asking us about what we wanted to order. Then pouring our champagne (which was not chilled) and not giving... More

Having spent my honeymoon in the Piedmont region, I am always ready to try a new (to me) northern Italian restaurant or dish. This modern take on clean and creative Italian should not be missed when nearby. I started with a glass of Nebbiolo, perfect. Appetizer of poached, roasted and raw pear with sweet Gorgonzola that melted in the mouth.... More

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.
