33 W Portal Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94127
Benvenuto! Quiet and cozy, with understated elegance, Spiazzo Ristorante is located in San Franciscos vibrant West Portal district. We offer authentic Italian cuisine that makes use of the freshest ingredients and traditional cooking techniques. From the time your meal starts with our complimentary breads and dipping sauce and ends with dessert, our team of experienced professionals are here to cater to your every need.
If you've never had a pizza cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven, you need to! The just-right crispness to the crust can only be obtained with the high heat a stone-floored oven provides. Of course we have Italian sausage, pepperoni, prosciutto, and the like, but we also make a divine seafood pizza that simply must be tried. The "fruits of the sea," clams, mussels, shrimp, and calamari, top this red sauce pizza, along with roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil.
Our antipasti menu has something for everyone. Adventurous eaters will appreciate our traditional beef carpaccio with freshly shaved Parmesan. Almost a meal in itself, our clams sauted in garlic and white wine, providing the perfect broth to dip your accompanying garlic bread.
Of course, it wouldn't be an Italian restaurant without pasta. No overcooked, mushy pasta here. This is the real thing, cooked to perfection, every time. Angel hair pasta tossed with fresh tomato, garlic, olive oil and basil is heavenly simplicity. Gnocchi, delicate potato dumplings, are rustic Italian cooking at its finest. Ricotta and spinach-stuffed ravioli pillows with a tomato sauce, chicken and broccoli penne in white wine, lasagna with meat sauce - youll want to come back again and again to take our culinary tour of Italy. We have gluten-free pasta available upon request, so everyone can enjoy Spiazzo Ristorante.
We make our minestrone fresh everyday, and it pairs perfectly with one of our salad choices for a light lunch, or serves as perfect starters while waiting for your entre. Italian food is more than just pizza and pasta. Succulent veal, beef, lamb, and chicken dishes are all represented on the menu, and highly recommended. With a moderately priced, well-balanced wine list, and fresh, traditional food prepared with love, Spiazzo Ristorante is simply the best Italian restaurant in San Francisco. Buon Appetito!
