Tratto - San Francisco
Menu is great. Food and ambience even better than anticipated. Can't go wrong dining here.
Wonderful find close to our hotel! The focaccia was DIVINE! It seriously melted in your mouth, with the extra salt and dipping olive oil, it was really AMAZING! The romanesco sauce with grilled vegetables was super tasty and the pasta excellent. A big YES as to would I recommend this restaurant to a friend.
We went with all the family. Service was fast. Food was ok. Nothing extraordinary
We ate lunch at Tratto prior to seeing Cursed Child at the Curran. We had a reservation and arrived just when they opened. We were given a choice of a large or small table and we chose the larger table next to the window. Our server was no. Ice and friendly. She answered questions about the food and checked back frequently. The food was really good. No scrimping in lunch service the pasta was perfect and the sauces were spot on. She even brought me a birthday dessert although I not said it was my birthday! Must be that the app told them. But whatever the reason it was a wonderful surprise!
Fresh made pasta was nice, but otherwise we weren’t too thrilled with our food. Yelp pictures made the ambience of this place seen a lot “fancier” than it actually is.
Theater dinner. Everything was terrific
Great value and especially great when attending plays at The Curran theatre in San Francisco. Will go back again!!!
Minestrone tasted good but served lukewarm. Lettuce in salad was limp, didn’t seem very fresh. All the food seemed pretty mediocre.
Great dining experience. Food and service was excellent!
Our waiter didn’t seem thrilled to be there, but the food & cocktails were good.
The service was very good, attentive. The restaurant was almost empty so I hope that was not a typical day.
The salad greens were kind of wilted, could have been fresher, crispier.
Warmly greeted and promptly seated thanks to our Open Table reservation. A varied, yet not overwhelming menu (both food and drink.) For example, they offered one brand of each varietal of wine and a handful of both beers and cocktails. Our server did well in answering any questions we had and helped patiently with those who just couldn't decide. No daily specials - read into that as you will. Personally, I think it's a good thing.
The Spinach Tagliatelle, Three Meat Bolognese was a pretty safe choice based upon the previous reviews and it certainly did not disappoint! Perfectl Perfectly cooked pasta with just the right amount of bolognese. It'll be tough to order differently next visit.
A very nice Tiramisu and Affogato finished off the meal.
Service was very attentive, yet not intrusive - probably knowing the show schedule at the nearby Curran. (We had plenty of time between Harry Potter, Part 1 and 2, to enjoy all Tratto had to offer.)
This is a great location if you're going to the theatre and the space is really cool. Was warm and inviting and upbeat. The lobby next door, where you go to use the restrooms, is amazing. The food was truly delicious (spicy polenta fries, foccacia, crab arrancini, gnocchi with braised beef) but the server while so nice, was a little slow and our cocktails took a good 10 mins and then we had to remind him about one of our missing starters. But we'd go again!
Everything was so good- tried two of the salads and two pastas and they were all amazing
A pleasant surprise in the Theater District. May become our new go-to.
The theatre prixe fixe menu was very helpful, as we were between the 2 Harry Potter shows at the Curran and had limited time. We had time to spare, and had a lovely dinner.
The service was super slow and the food was bland. But the drinks are good - I would only recommend coming here for the bar, not the food
Enjoyable lunch before attending ACT performance with friends. Food was good, menu somewhat limited. We all enjoyed the mushroom/garlic pizza, among other menu selections. Iced tea was refilled without requesting it, but had to ask for coffee refills.
Pleasant surroundings. Noise level fairly low. Restaurant is very convenient to the theaters on Geary. Would return.
This is a casual to moderate spot with a solid menu and very good service.
Great for a pre-show meal or any time.
Close to theaters. Chopped Italian salad was OK, minestrone soup had more flavor. High-energy Happy Hour/ pre-theater crowd on a Thursday.
Great food and the wait staff did a great job of making sure that we made it to the theatre on time.
We had dinner there. Delicious. Tagliatelle with bolognese and gnocchi with braised beef. We also had a good lunch here. Reservations are recommended. If you have a play to get to, they’ll accommodate your schedule.
Good food! Place is a little noisy, but the service was good!
Food was delicious, with ample portions, and very reasonable prices!
Modern twists on Italian food. Limited non-alcoholic beverages.
Service was great but food was cold and made me sick.
We went for my roommates birthday
The best pasta EVER.
Quick and helpful service to get us to our show, and. Theater price fixe menu
Great location! Very good food and excellent service made for a fun evening
Booked a reservation here because it is close to he Curran Theater. My wife and I split the Arugula Salad and Gnocchi with braised beef. Both dishes were excellent and reminiscent of true Italian food. Service was great and prices were reasonable for the quality of food. I would definitely recommend Tratto for anyone visiting this area. We will be back!
It was perfect for what we wanted. We were seeing the 2 part Harry Potter play at the Curran and we had time between the shows for dinner. This is a very nice restaurant about half a block from the theater and they take reservations. It worked perfectly for us and the people were very nice. It was noisy in general, BUT we were able to hear each other across the table without raising our voices. The food was generally good.
Liked the ambiance of Tratto. The wait staff was attentive and the dessert was really good. Our pasta dish looked appetizing, but lacked flavor.
This was my second visit to Tratto having really enjoyed my first trip. The restaurant is in a hotel and does not have its own restrooms. Patrons are directed to use the hotel lobby restrooms which are just across the hall. This was a problem because hotel security followed me in to the bathroom and while I was occupied demanded to know who I was without identifying themselves. This is insane behavior for any business and rude beyond belief. The hotel manager added nothing to the conversation when I brought this to her attention. I will NEVER return to Tratto and cannot in good conscious recommend it if this is how patrons are treated.
Service was excellent - courteous and friendly. However, I wish we'd been told about the charge for water. We were surprised by the tacked on $6 charge for water upon receipt of the check. The food was good, but the tiramisu was a slight letdown.
honestly worth the price!! it tastes like real quality italian food. the pasta is made fresh - you'll lick your plate clean. however, the service is a bit slow.. other than that would definitely visit Tratto again.
My martini, a vodka martini, very simple, was awful. It tasted like a Fernet martini and was extremely gross. By the time the waiter came by to check on us, it was too late and I stuck with water.
Food was good, calamari, soup, caeser salad and a pasta dish.
Waiter seemed like he was too busy or we were just put in an area where we were easy to be forgotten about.
Meh. Good location for the Curran but unhelpful host and just so-so food.
We were really looking forward to eating at this restaurant before we went to the performance of Hamilton at 7 PM.
One of the reasons we chose Tratto, is because it’s open all day.
We felt that the server was not very engaged, seemed preoccupied. The service was spotty, and when we wanted our check he was nowhere to be found.
While the food was tasty, it was served lukewarm. We had soup and two swordfish entrées.
