we had dinner there for a special occassion. The food was delicious. Menu was rather limited, but everyhting looked wonderful. prices were reasonable for san Francisco . beautiful view out of the fron t window. seating was a little cramped as the restaurant is small. parking can also be a issue. all in all I would highly recommend for a special anniversary or birthday. if from out of town you could walk from some of the nearby hotels.

Venticello is truly charming! It is intimately tucked away in the Nob Hill neighborhood. The dining room is rustic and authentic with warm and cozy lighting and candles on the tables. The service has always been wonderful and warm.

The room is very nice as are the hostess, but the good news stops there. The waiter was hostile, rude, and kept us waiting 20 minutes. The food was not good. Heavy sauce not specified on the menu was used on seared tuna and sole

Some reviewers have complained of hurried service. Venticello definitely gets crowded on the weekend but the trick is to get a later seating around 8:30-9:00. You can take your time and stick around until they lock up.

My wife and I have dined at Venticello 5 times. Each time the hostess has been a model of courtesy. The dining area is reminiscent of a charming Tuscan trattoria, though a bit noisy and crowded. Service is slow, especially as the evening
