Looking for a comfortable bar in San Francisco where we can do a gift exchange (6 people). Dinner afterwards. Good parking a plus. Prefer mid range $ Italian.
OpenTable brings up 39 different options including Rose Pistola, Antica Trattoria, and Il Fornaio.
Okay, this probably doesn't meet enough of your criteria, but we ate at Luella last night. The bar area is very nice and not jammed into the main walkway somewhere. I had the scallops which were wonderful, my friend loved the braised pork shoulder, a speciality of theirs. Not Italian and parking...well, I think they have valet. I walked - even climed that damned hill - because parking up there is pretty bad. Food is great, atmosphere very nice, so you may want to consider it.
