Today for lunch the office mates and I wandered down to Zuppa for lunch. It is now my go-to, "hardy bowl of pasta for lunch" place. I had the pork ragu which was really simply and yummy. Triangular tube pasta with a nice spring to it as you ate. Really good and only $11. I'll be back.

I moved to San Francisco over three years ago and one of the first restaurants I went to was Zuppa in SOMA. It was one of my favorite spots right away. I even threw a birthday party for my (now) fiance in the private loft area upstairs.

My new favorite place for lunch and happy hour! Roasted veggie plate and fresh mozzarella was perfect -- if only it was alfresco on this beautiful sunny day in Soma. Oyster specials and great wine deals for happy hour make it easy to leave work early.

Specializing in what is in season and available from local farms. There is a cheese and tomato appetizer that melts in your mouth. The chicken is cooked to perfection. The drinks are world class.

Waitress was very stuck up. Bad service is NOT acceptable in the compatible SF restaurants. Food was ok but the rib eye steak we order has a lot of fiber.
