    Rude waiter - let hurrying us to order. After we ordered never checked on us again. This is especially jarring since they charge a 10 percent extra fee excluding gratuity to subsidize employees

    Went here for the first time for a birthday celebration. From arrival to departure the service was impeccable. Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and made some awesome suggestions which were absolutely delicious. I'd like to specifically highlight Jennifer's service! She was an exceptional hostess. Although she wasn't our waitress she checked in frequently and had an amazing personality. Thank you for making my friends birthday a pleasurable and memorable one

    Good was outstanding. Pizza, pastas, but the suckling pig dish is the best pork dish I’ve ever had. The fried potatoes were so tasty. We loved the meal. Fun spot, excellent service and value.

    If you're looking for a light, refreshing spaghetti dish, this is not the place for you. The lemon flavor is strong and overpowering, making it difficult to taste the delicate flavor of the clams.

    Have been three times. This last time I really only enjoyed the pizza and was left wanting more/less seasoning on the other dishes. The vongole dish was inconsistent in taste/preparation from last time, which was delicious. This time there was too much lemon and I would not order it again. The suckling pig was inconsistently seasoned as well, however, the potatoes were tasty.

    Food was nothing like their upstairs restaurant. Salcicia pizza was nothing exciting-not much sausage and a lot of fennel and onion. A lot of crust. For $29 I was expecting a more impressive pizza. Compota (eggplant antipasto) was okay but I wouldn’t order it again. Wine at $22 a glass is pricey but tasty. Too many other great places in SF to try this one again

    Had a reservation on Friday evening for table outside, had to wait a little bit no big deal. Brought our own wine since corkage fee is $30 for first two bottles. The food is always great - we shared family style the focaccia, risotto balls (must have), salad, cacio pasta, margarita pizza, and the fish. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out!

    We sat in the outdoor parklet, so the "ambiance" score needs to be understood in that context. It was a windy night and somehow the wind was whirling around in our booth in spite of the plexi windows. We could have used an extra heat lamp, but that's no fault of the restaurant. The food was mostly good -- spinach lasagna and eggplant parmigiana were fantastic. The insalata tritata was on the super salty side -- tastes good if you have a few bites, but the saltiness starts to build up. The tiramisu was everything you want tiramisu to be. Overall, dinner was good.

    Food was very good. Able to share plates, family style dishes. Waitresses have been able to accommodate 9 people table. Music was a little bit too loud and due to the large number of people we had to order pretty fast the drinks and the food. The burrata/ prosciutto plate does not come with bread …

    Just posted an extensive Google review, but it came down to really subpar service, starting with a 20 min wait for a reserved table. Food overall was really good (a couple dishes were just pretty good), but we were there from 7:30 to 9:45, due mainly for having to wait for long stretches of time throughout. With all the hype, I expected a much better experience. We probably won’t return.

    First I did not know it was not the real Che fico, location was on the ground level with Low ceilings. The food was good but very expensive for what it was. We were told that it was family style so ordered accordingly then the food all came at once even though we were told it would come in 15 minutes separated from each other. The waiter shrugged his shoulders and half apologized. Then the floor manager came over to see what was going on it was very loud in the back corner that we were put in and it seemed as if she was shouting to be heard one of my party got upset with that and asked her to stop shouting. By that time the meal was ruined then five minutes later the chef left the kitchen to come in tell us not to treat his people that way. All of this and I noticed that they were going to charge us 10% on top of everything to pay the staff which I don’t know why it couldn’t come out of the $40 spaghetti price. So probably will never go here again.
