The atmosphere was great, not too noisy for a location on Powell & its nicely-decorated inside.
I had the 3-course meal lunch special : Price-wise- pretty good deal for a little over $20.00, Taste-wise- not too impressive, althought the main course was a good-sized amount, the caesar salad with whole anchovies was a bit over-the-top & the watermelon dessert was too sweet.
My group was there for about an hour-n-a-half waiting for each course to be brought, so I would recommend this location for dinner versus a lunch-break stop.
Also, if you're not familiar with Italian dishes, this may not be the ideal location; I wasn't really sure about many of the menu items because I wasn't familiar with the Italian-named dish.

This is one of my very favorite restaurants in SF. There food is excellent and they have the best tirimisu I have ever had. They have a beautiful carved bar that has a great deal of history (the waiters will tell you the story). I had the chicken and loved it.

Great food and service but very hard to get a reservation. I guess that is a sign of good food if it is hard to get in. The dinners are fabulous but a bit pricey. I say go for lunch and still have a nice meal.

Located in the hotel Florence on Powell St. off of Union Square. I recommend the lunch menu the best. Dinner is expensive, and can be hard to get a reservation, but it is worth it if you can get it.

I visited this restaurant a couple weeks ago, it was recommended by my hotel concierge. I was excited to try it out, but disappointed to find limited meat-free options. Really there is only one safe dish on the menu - spaghetti pomodoro.

Ambiance was great. Service was prompt and very courteous.

Food was great. The Macaroni starter was delicious and so was the Brick Chicken. My Husband loved the Duck Entree, wasn't too fatty.

It was my husbands birthday and when we had finished dinner they brought a free Tirimisu, to help us celebrate, which was a very nice gesture.

Great Location in Union Square.

I have to go to Kuleto's everytime I visit San Francisco! Some of the best inventive Italian fare I've ever had. Service is attentive, beautiful decor and relaxed setting, even when it's crowded and loud! I love it, it's a "must do"!
