San Francisco splurge

  • p

Lovers of seafood and/or Italian cuisine going to San
Francisco late April. Any recommendations for
memorable, romantic, good value for the price, sort of
places? Cost isn't a huge issue. I realize this is a
tall order given the culinary stature of the city.
Thanks in advance. pat

  1. For Italian: look up Rosa Pistola. I haven't been there
    myself but I've read great reviews about it and then
    heard from my brother (a most reliable NY chowhound)
    that it was indeed excellent and very affordable.

      Thanks Janet. It sounds great. pat

        Just echoing Janet's sentiments. A friend of mine, a cookbook writer, just went to Rosa Pistola and loved it.

          Gary, Thanks for seconding the motion on Rosa Pistola.
          I also made note of Fina Estampa. That sounds
          fascinating too. I only wish I were inquiring for
          myself. But my daughter and her husband will enjoy one
          or the other, I'm sure. pat
