Absolutely fantastic! In South San Francisco for a conference and found this gem! Obviously a local favorite; however, as a weary traveler in need of sustenance this was the find of the century! Three in our party, we each had something different and raved about our own dishes as we ate. I can't say enough about this place. Our waiter, an absolute gentleman, was stupendous! Thank you, Bertolucci's, for hosting us...simply remarkable!! Best wishes to you and your team!

Had a delightful dinner with a full house within one hour of opening. Many locals enjoying a meal with family and friends. The wait service great and the meal excellent. Plenty of items to choose from to please anyone. The bread and focaccia are delicious!!! Prices are reasonable. Definitely a spot to try if you are seeking a Sunday dinner in SSF.

Easy street and off street parking. I try to come on friday afternoon for lunch/dinner to watch the mature Italian 'mothers with their sons and wives or Saturday night to watch the same men back in with their bimbo girlfriend.
Those Italian mothers sit ramrod straight and always
have two cocktails or wine before eating. The menu
is excellent as is the food. I always order the Caesar salad
with extra archives and the Calamari which is cooked
perfectly. My friend always has a pasta dish and says it
is always cooked perfectly al dente. You could close your
eye when you open them you expect to see Dean Martin
or Frankie seating at the next booth. STRONGLY recommend this restaurant for the food and the visuals

After a month of bar food we stumbled across Bertolucci's while trying to find somewhere to eat before flying out the next day and I must say we were delighted with this find. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and overall this was the best eats we had on our holiday. I would certainly recommend Bertolucci's to anyone who was looking for food in South San Francisco.

Took our extended family to dinner on 9/24/18. Seemed perfect as our guests had a 9:00 pm flight at SFO. Their car was filled with their luggage, making a tempting target for a break-in. Luckily, Bertolucci’s has a private parking lot. Unluckily, it was full. We parked in the only secure spot, directly in front of the restaurant, occupying half of a large loading zone.
Nice dinner, as usual. But as we were finishing up, our waiter came by to tell us we needed to move our car. We asked if it would be ok to wait until we finished eating, and he checked with the owner, but came back to tell us we needed to move it immediately. We asked again, and the owner came to our table. We explained we would be finished and out in five minutes, but the owner said we were “breaking the rules” and needed to move our car immediately. One of our party got up to move our car, and has he did so, a woman berated at him for “parking like an a—hole”. She turned out to be the owner’s wife, who wanted to use the space herself. I spoke with the owner and asked if he thought it was appropriate to speak that way to a customer. His reply - “she didn’t call him an a—hole, she just said he parked like an a—hole”. I asked him if there was really a difference, but it was a lost cause. We paid and left immediately. I did ask the maitre d if the owner was always like this, and he quietly told me, “only when you break the rules”. Understatement! Cross this one off our list.
