One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. The food is outstanding, wonderful wine list and service is amazing. Cannot wait to return!
Home made good quality food hidden in Russian Hill. Polenta with lamb meatballs was great and tiramisu was excellent! Service with super kind staff!
Very good authentic Italian restaurant.
Amazing place. A wonderful hidden with excellent food and service.
Needs a handicapped bathroom or grab bars. Happy place
Excellent service and food quality
Ristorate Milano was an extremely pleasant surprise given its location and relatively low key exterior. It was all about service and food once you walked in though. Our waiter was sincerely concerned that our initial experience in the restaurant was a good one, and it was. As the first guests of the evening, we couldn’t help but get plenty of attention from our server. However, that attention did not seem to decrease as the evening went on and the restaurant filled up — with what appeared to be a number of regulars. This is a place I would highly recommend, and we will be back.
Very nice food and seated by the window which was nice
This restaurant reminded us of dining in Rome. The wine was excellent; Food delicious. Service was kind, attentive, and helpful when we asked for recommendations. If we lived in SF, we would return frequently. Highly recommend.
Delicious, authenticate Italian food. Local neighborhood restaurant with great food and atmosphere
So amazing! If you haven’t been I pity you! The staff is great. Food is amazing!
Fantastic REAL Italian. I'm a European and it is refreshing to find such a jewel in SF. Food is fantastic (pasta, seafood, and dessert!). the place is charming and wine prices are reasonable (while the wine menu is really comprehensive if you like italian wine). Recommended
Service was exceptional, food was homemade and full of flavor! The restaurant is charming. We sat by the window overlooking the street and it was romantic with the fresh flowers on the table.
Excellent food, wine and service. Lively but reasonably so atmosphere.
Food was amazing
This was a very popular restaurant & though it was the 1st time for us, we intend to return. The service was excellent. We made our reservation through Opentable & were seated immediately. There were ample street parking if you go early (around 6ish). Service was friendly & food service was reasonably fast. Food was good! Serving portion were adequate for dining there. They have one of the best Tiramisu in town - almost like the one I craved for from Milan. They served good, strong coffee which paired very well with their Tiramisu. A great Italian food spot.
Amazing food, atmosphere, and staff!
This is my favorite Italian neighborhood restaurant. The food is authentic Milanese. Pasta is fresh. Wait staff are Italian, too. Love this place!
The fettucine were delicious and so were the mushroom bruchettas. Really excellent. I discovered a new wine grape variety: falanghina (Antiche Terre) that paired wonderfully with the food.
The service was particularly wonderful. It seemed as if the staff was comfortable and even enjoyed working there.......always a good sign for how everything is likely to be!!
Delicious pasta and desserts. Picked Ristorante Milano for my birthday dinner.
Ristorante Milano has been a delicious and gracious part of our life for over 20 years. Aldo has consistently innovated and elevated Milano above all our other favorite neighborhood restaurants - old classics (like the most perfectly grilled Veal Chop In SF) mix with surprising new treats like Crostini w/polenta.....The menu focuses on seasonal offerings favoring local producers, but what keeps us coming back time after time is the unfailing warmth, good cheer and talent of Aldo, the kitchen,and the whole Milano team. If your favorite brother was Italian and a restaurateur, this would be his place.❤️
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend.
Went with my wife wanting great Italian and we loved it. From the Pear Salad to the ravioli to the veal, we loved it all. Can’t wait to go back.
Fantastic Italian food in small intimate setting. Feels like you just ducked into a small restaurant in Rome or Florence. Highly recommend it!
Always exceeds expectations!
We had a reservation for a party of 7 and we were able to change it to 8 with very short notice. We ended up getting there from 10-60 minutes late to the agreed time but the host was still extremely welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing and the server made great suggestions when we asked. I hope to return again soon, maybe punctually next time. Great for any age looking for a nicer yet reasonably priced dinner.
Wonderful dinner. We have not been in Russian Hill in several years. This is an outstanding restaurant.
This has been my fourth trip. It has never been anything but delicious and enjoyable. Worth the trip and moderate struggle to park.
Food was authentic and excellent, and the service was very attentive without being intrusive.
Excellent dining experience. Recommend!
A real find
Charming restaurant with great food and service. Tables are a little tight. We will definitely go back – on the early side on a week day.
Interesting menu. Attentive and knowledgeable service. Small place so if filled..esp. w lg groups..can be noisy. Owner stopped us outside to chat..nice touch!
Everything was great! Owner came around a few times and checked on us! When we left, he remembered our names! We will be back! Thanks, Aldo and team!
Excellent, authentic Italian restaurant- All food outstanding & very fresh! Wonderful servers and staff. Ristorante Milano is a charming neighborhood gem in the Russian Hill neighborhood.
Great to discover another restaurant in our neighborhood. Menu was interesting, food was fresh and delicious. Service was friendly and smooth. I look forward to returning.
Our friend was visiting from out of town and he specifically asked for the best Italian in the city. I had never dined at Ristorante Milano but the reviews were impressive. Our dinner did not disappoint! The food was authentic and delicious! The restaurant was small and intimate. Our friend was really impressed very happy we came
