Looking for great Veal Scallopini

  • j

Can anyone recommend somewhere in the city for great Veal Scallopini? Neighborhood doesn't matter, not TOO expensive please. Just looking for good food, no wine, atmosphere, etc.

  1. First, though not an Italian speaker, I believe Scallopini to be a thin slice of something. Not a dish with Marsala and/or mushrooms and/or lemon juice and/or etc. So you might want to clarify.

    Next, it is kind of a medium-low end dish. By that I mean that though veal, it is not subject to precise measure or tasting and cooks in 3-5 minutes, so it isn't going to be the same any two times at a given restaurant.

    All that said, I like Veal Marsala at Ernesto's (Clement & 24th/25th Ave) and at Osteria (Presidio/Sacto).

    1. Veal Scallopini is an old dish. If you are looking for an "authentic" version of it, you won't do any better than...


      1. I love Veal Scallopini!

        I know Pazzia restaurant on 3rd and Folsom has that dish ocassionally, you might want to call and check.

        1. Osteria on presidio and sacramento SF.

          1. excellent veal scallopini w/mushrooms. original, saute w/ wine, garlic, olive oil. mushrooms. I've never had it anywhere else like this. The best. Don't go for atmosphere or service or you won't be impressed.
