I had the Roasted Northern Halibut and it was one of the best meals I have had in SF! My wife had a pasta dish, it was good but not to die for. The beet salad was exceptional, we both enjoyed it.

Perbacco is right in the heart of the Financial District of San Francisco. The food is Italian-American and the preparations are delicious and high end. I had a gnocchi appetizer which was delicious and the sea scallops for an entree which were perfectly prepared. The wine list is extensive, particularly in the Italian wines and they have people who can... More

My adult daughter and I ate at Perbacco yesterday night, and it was fabulous. Food was excellent, service was attentive and efficient. Special mention for their sommelier, who selected an outstanding wine for us at a reasonable price point ($50), and also to whoever came up with the pear and cheese appetizer and the chocolate dessert (starts with a "...

I've been here several times and the food and service are always good. Can be very loud and packed on the weekends. Don't count on space at the bar.

We open the door and I greeted the host. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Tables are very, very close to each other. Service is nice enough. If you do not know Italian culinary words, they can help you translated the menu. Very nice wine menu.... nice enough for a nice dinner.... exceptional, no. However the dark chocolate... More

In a city with so many great food options, it's hard to stand out. The ambiance is great for a night out with friends after work or even on the weekend and the good, overall, is also great. The octopus (piastra roasted octopus) appetizer was beautifully seasoned and not at all rubbery, which is a plus, and the tuna (pesce... More

My husband and I loved their lasagna. Our friend really liked their risotto. Very good wine selection with friendly, knowledgeable staff who can help guide your selection. A bit loud though.

My wife and I love coming here for some fine Italian food. We enjoy sitting at the counter and drink great wines from their impressive wine list and share a bunch of their great appetizers and main courses. The atmosphere is hip and elegant at the same time. Love it every time!

Our son and a friend took us here for dinner on our final night in town. Amazing service and divine food was completed by an incredible recommendation for a bottle of wine. Everything was impeccable from start to finish. I would highly recommend Perbacco for anyone looking to impress clients, family or friends.

Thank Redtwin2

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.
