Best Veal (Picatta, Marsala, Parmagina, etc) in San Francisco/North Marin

Pregnant woman craving veal needs help! Thanks

  1. On top of Nob Hill there's a small Italian place called Venticello. They can do a veal picatta if you ask. It's not on the menu but they can make it by request.. Every now and then I crave the combo of veal, lemon and capers. Now, just so I don't get in trouble, you might want to call ahead and confirm that they'll make it for you. But really, how could they deny a pregnant woman with a craving?


    1. It's not picatta/marsala/parmagiana, but Jackson Fillmore does a nice big veal chop with garlic and herbs.

      In the Castro, "The Sausage Factory" is a 'solid average' Italian place. Nothing fancy. Not expensive.
      Perfectly serviceable though, and while I've never been pregnant, it has answered my own personal craving call for chicken parmigiana on many many an occasion.

      They have Veal picata, parmigiana, milanese, and dore on the menu.
      They do chicken marsala, and while veal marsala is not on the menu, I'm sure they'd make it for you. Here's their menu:

        Funny, I thought of the Sausage Factory but decided against mentioning it. They do a very good chicken picatta. The restaurant is comfortable, well worn, and somewhat old fashioned. Glad you included this old favorite.

        1. Bistro St. Germain does a delicious osso bucco

          1. Try Marcello's on Taraval in the Parkside/Sunset District. Really good veal dishes there.
