This is just a general thank you to you SF Chowhounders. I just came back from SF a couple of days ago from my first vacation in YEARS. As I was visiting tons of friends and family (Filipino-style, which means wonderful, endless days of eating homecooked tastiness) I knew that I would only be able to go try one great place.

After scouring the boards, I found Incanto.

I knew it was a good sign when the cabbie that took me there commented that it was a place only locals knew about.

Apps: The Porchetta di Testa was interesting - I really enjoyed the marbling. Though I totally forgot to ask which part of the head it was - I am guessing cheek. (Anyone know?)

Entree: I had the Spaghettini, Sardinian cured tuna heart, egg yolk & parsley which was just...delish. *sigh* My friends had the Braised pork shoulder and the Roasted lamb neck. While both exceptionally tasty, I am glad that I went with the wilder of the 3 (as per the suggestions given by chowhounders).

Dessert: I had the Bay leaf panna cotta which was meltingly good. Though I think my pal's Honey-lavender ice cream with peach crostini was the absolute best. Esp the ice cream. Dreamy.

So, thank you, chowhounders for helping me make the best of my vacation.

    So glad you had a great meal! The porchetta di testa and the spaghettini both brought conversation to a halt at my table because they were so good.

    Thanks for the report - hope your future visits are as successful!
