Going to Sociale this Sat. - What to order? Where to park?

I've discovered to my joy that a well-rated SF trattoria is open for lunch on Saturdays, a not overly common trait of bistros up there. So we're going to Sociale for lunch this Saturday, and I've been looking over the menu - so many awesome choices! What's good? Do they make their own pasta?

Also, it's at 3665 Sacramento. Who's in the know about parking in the area and can advise me?

Here's their website:

  1. I usually don't have a trouble with street parking during dinner, but I'm not sure what the area will be like for lunch.

    Fried Olives are a must order for an appetizer. Bone Marrow dish is another option for a more daring appetizer.

    Their pastas are really good because I believe their housemade. The Spinach Fettuccini and Pappardelle are really good. The chef uses a lot of what's in season, so it'll always be fresh and tasty.

      The last time I went there they had (for dessert) fresh, piping hot donuts served with a small coffee milkshake. The shake was not great, but I still fantasize about those donuts...
