We sat in the back for brunch. The music started at low volume then increased. We asked them to turn it down and they did! Wonderful. Of course, the food was fantastic as always. Thx guys.

Super cute spot in the mission. Food was good though the eggs in my purgatory were overdone (some solid yolk whoops) but still tasty. The mister had french toast and “the most amazing bacon”.

The server was MIA. The host was great, seated us next to the window as requested. The waitress never came to check on us after food was delivered to ask how things were. I had flagged her over and she looked at me, went into the kitchen and never checked on us. We flagged down the host to give us hot sauce. We had to ask the host to take care of our bill. Our waitress was disgraceful and I wouldn't recommend based on the quality of her service.

It was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, cocktails, decor, service and especially the food. Our artichoke appetizers were delicious, although one of them was a tad too al dente. Not consistent, but very flavorful. The pasta dishes were delicious and perfectly balanced - not too rich (carbonara) with perfect pasta! The orchiette pasta dish was incredibly flavorful and also cooked to perfection. The only criticism was the music was a too loud for the first part of the dinner when we arrived and were looking over the menu and waiting for our cocktails. But it was then lowered and was more enjoyable, and then increased again before we left. It was too difficult to hear across the table when the music was too loud.

The veggies were the standouts! Squash with preserved lemon, sage and walnuts; turnips and beets with salsa verde and breadcrumbs; fried "Jewish" artichokes with mint. All were superb. The carbonara was ok - but the pasta was too al dente. Nebbiolo by the glass was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall, I thought it was an interesting meal, that provided lots of great ideas for our own home cooking.

This is the spot for drinks and snack of pizza Bianca . If the attic Hicks are on the menu then that is a plus . The pasta has been too al dented the past two visits . It use to be such a delicious restaurant despite warnings I went any way .. just awlful and the group sitting next to us were also a bit shocked . But the wine is good!

I'm not a fan of "Italian" restaurants in America - none of them are good. I had the bavette steak, which was cooked very well and tasted great. I shared the rigatoni with a companion and, like most pasta dishes with a white sauce, if you don't eat it immediately, they begin to gel and this one was no different. The rigatoni itself was unremarkable and, perhaps, overcooked. Two companions thought the black rock fish was good and the other two companions shared another fish dish (which I can't remember what they had!) and thought it was OK. The broccoli or broccolini was superb - the best dish of the evening; well-seasoned, great taste, cooked perfectly. Service was inconsistent and the primary waitperson got a few orders wrong, heard them incorrectly, or once ordered, didn't provide them at all. We were seated near the rear - 5 of us at a make-shift table for 4 - it was tight, uncomfortable, and warm. The place is loud; way too loud to have a decent conversation. Yet another SF restaurant where you're supposed to have had a good time, but when you're finished, you're exhausted from trying to have a conversation above the din. Decent food, but nothing says I need to return any time soon.

We have love Locanda before, but they were not on their game this time. The pizza bianca and the pasta caccio/pepe both were insanely salty – and I like salt! The pasta was almost crunchy – and I like al dente! Not sure what the deal was but we won't be rushing back.

The food was very good but our server rushed us. We were worried that they needed our table, but when we finished there were several empty tables so there was not a reason to rush us the way he did. When the 4 of us walked out, we all agreed that our server left a lot to be desired. But the food was very good and we enjoyed it and would go back.

I would go back just for the cocktails and our server! The mixologist was amazing! I couldn't figure out what I wanted to order so they asked me for my flavor profile. The creation was so good I hope they put it on the menu.
The food was very good but what made our experience really great was our server. So patient in helping with the wine and menu!
One of our friends has Celiac and we were amazed how the kitchen was so accommodating.

Had lovely Labor Day brunch in the Mission.
The ginger soda had great flavor, kind of like lemonade.
The bacon was crunchy and not too salty which makes you want to eat a lot.
The salad with fresh pea pods and poach egg and potatoes was a winner.
