Foursquare Tips

  • A jacket is suggested. We wonder if a papal robe would suffice
  • Call for an "anniversary dinner" to sit at a corner table for a view of the entire restaurant. Save room for mini dessert selection to finish your meal - fruit tart and carrot cake macaron are best!
  • San Francisco Chronicle, one of our reviewers, says, "For the meat course, the kitchen features Kobe beef, with tiny caramelized baby squash, a pad of potato puree and a green peppercorn sauce".
  • Winemaker's choice: "... if I simply want to sit down, not make any decisions, get a terrific wine education, have wonderful food, and be taken care I go to Aquerello." Tyler Thomas
  • Delicious! The lobster panzerotti and ridged pasta with foie gras are heaven!
  • One Michelin star.
  • Chef Suzette Gresham-Tognettis refined Italian cuisine is exquisite, but dont miss out on the superb wine service and enjoy some exciting Italian varietals. - Inspector
  • You must order the Foie Gras Ridged Pasta. YOU MUST!!!
  • The $325 seasonal tasting menu is centered around truffles and includes uovo affogato over creamed leeks and butter crumb with shaved white truffles; white truffle gelato and guanaja, and more.
  • Try the pear ravioli stuffed with foie gras, or the sturgeon with truffle, kusshi oysters, and osetra caviar
  • Even though it's off of the seasonal menu, you can order the Ridged pasta with foie gras, black truffle and Marsala as your second course in the three course menu.
  • Pasta. Wine. Everything's executed very well.
  • Amazing italian. The ridged pasta is a must
  • I was there with good friends who made the food taste even better. Scottish salmon and Risotto were great.
  • It's hard to go wrong. Everything's spectacular here.
  • The place is top notch, however I feel La Folie is better in the same price range
  • The classic Parmesan budino (described by Michael Bauer as the finest, most exquisite custard, surrounded by tiny greens and topped with black truffle caviar) is a must ... as is a fat wallet.
  • Diners select three to five courses. There's also a six-course tasting of the restaurant's signature dishes for $95; wine pairings are $75.
  • Specialties: House-made pasta with duck liver and black truffles; lobster panzerotti in spicy lobster broth; cauliflower budino; truffle-stuffed chicken breast; bourbon caramel semifreddo.
  • Best biscotti
