    Nice place, good food/wine options, and everyone was friendly. The only drawback was the outdoor seating could be better (the tables are on a big slope and are a bit too close together, so was hard to talk over other conversations).

    Food and service stood out as excellent and would love to have again. However, the music was much too loud, even in the back of the restaurant where it tended to be more open and airy. That's the deal breaker for us - too noisy. But, then, we're old.

    Salmon was over cooked and dry. Steak was not salted and medium well rather than medium rare. Surround of caramelized onions with steak unimaginative. Salads were good. Currant gelato was like eating jam.

    Not enough expletives for the food. It’s a wow for what is not typically considered wow food: pizza and pasta. The thin yeasty delicious crust in the pizza is certainly one of the best in SF…then quality ingredients throughout with depth to their sauces in both categories. We shared the margarita with prosciutto, maccaronara pasta ( simple tomato with hearty house made noodle) and the little gem caeser. Yum! Oh, and the meatballs…loved the flavor of mixed meats, but texture was a little soft for my taste. All in all, an outstanding meal and will become one of our regular “go to’s” for un-fancy dining. And their waiters know their wines! Tell ‘em what you like and trust their rec…100% Italian and I knew none on the menu. My rose had great balance and my partner’s pick for a Sauv Blanc pleased him a lot. Didn’t love the tall tables, but for a neighborhood venue, this remains one of The Marina’s best.

    Food was over salted and just kind of meh. Got the most expensive bubbly rose based on waiter’s recommendation and partner got a red after saying he wanted something full bodied and the waiter said I know just what to get you, and both were frankly bad. Went here because it’s supposed to have great wine, but it was not in evidence. Waiter was brusque.

    Service was bad. Took 34 minutes of sitting there until our waiter acknowledged our existence. 50 minutes until we were actually served our wine. Food came out in random order. Ordered the salumi, and it came out as the literal last dish. Our waiter was incompetent. Overall pretty lackluster experience.

    We were a big group at peak dining on a weekend so that is always a struggle for a small wait staff. They should share duties and split tips to ensure better coverage of the basics, like water. The food came out at once instead of normal timing of appetizers, salads and then pizza. The slower service meant less money on lucrative wine sales….but also felt inhospitable. Like they didn’t want us there. All the food was outstanding, the wine list amazing, but too nuts and stressful dining environment to make it worth wading into the chaos. But like I said, we were a big group and that tainted our experience for sure.

    I had *such* high hopes for this restaurant! The bar and the vibe from the front of house staff were really exciting and buzzy. Fun music, and great service by the hostess. Unfortunately, as soon as we took our seats it was downhill from there. Our table service was really (very noticeably) poor, the wine was oxidized and undrinkable, it was so loud that we couldn't hear each other speak, and there was a bug in our appetizer. It was a special night as well, celebrating a university graduation, and so we were doubly disappointed. I hope this was just a really off night but we won't be coming back to find out.

    Food was good but service really slow, there probably weren't enough workers to handle a Friday night crowd. Our server would disappear for long stretches of time causing us to wait inordiantly for basics like water refills and beverages. I would recommend this restaurant with a caveat that the service may be spotty.

    What worked: Service = excellent. Back patio pleasant atmosphere on a sunny early evening. What didn't work: Noise level so high very difficult to hear conversation; Also my little gem caesar salad dressing was tasteless. I shared the anchovies, as I prefer them to be finely chopped and blended into the dressing. Without them, there was no taste.
