This place features some of the most distinctive Italian cuisine in San Francisco in a pleasantly sophisticated setting. Fresh, seasonal seafood is a highlight here, as is the Cioppino (Italian fish stew). But first try the antipasti, which are given special attention here. The service is professional and there is a full bar where you can munch antipasti while you are waiting for your table. It also has an extensive wine list featuring Italian and California wines for the most part.
A bit noisy, good food, but they have a strange way to serve food. It is kind of a group effort. But it doesn't work. I also saw other reviews showing this to be an inexpensive to moderately priced place. For two people without drinks and one dessert the tab came to $125.
The pasta was about 2-3 oz served in a lunch/dessert plate ($17), partially uncooked(do Italian eat pasta raw?). The sauce was good, but it came only with 3 mussels & a few bite size pcs of fish & calamari. Well, everyone there seemed happy with that portion, probably because they all had their drinks to satisfy the calorie count. Good for dieters (for me, heck, never again).
