Had some of the best pasta I've had in years. Better than anything I ever ate in Rome. I ate here a couple of days ago and the place seemed very clean, so not sure about the last ...


The food was ok. They had a guy outside that convinced my wife we should eat there. Everything was going ok until it was time to pay. We waited quite a while and finally I flag...

The Bottom Floor 5/21/2006

I’d eaten a perfect meal at the trattoria a few week before, so I was looking forward to friends coming into town and taking them back to the Steps of Rome. Little did I know, the Trattoria serves a completely different caliber of food than the ground floor of Steps. This is where the action is. The waitstaff massages you, they sing, they flirt. The place gets pretty wild, all in hopes, I suppose, of distracting you that the food’s nothing special. It was shameful to say the least to have raved about Steps of Rome to my friends and then take them to the wrong Steps, everyone all jazzed up for an amazing meal, and then to see them poking around their pasta in the midsts of music pumping and the waiters clowning around. Bummer. There should be some sort of disclaimer or warning signs to save others from making the same blunder. more

Trattoria! 5/21/2006

There’s the steps of Rome Trattoria and the Steps of Rome main restaurant. The regular section is where the action is, singing waiters and all that, but the food has been dissapointing every time I’ve gone there. It’s an entirely different quality than is served in the trattoria, where everything is a little more expensive, but the food is so authentic. For some reason, I always end up ordering something off the menu, not that the menu is lacking, but I’m always hankering for a specific combination and they nail it every time. Can’t think of a more romantic place to take that special someone. One of the few places I've eaten at in North Beach that wasn't a huge letdown. more

great italian food 12/29/2005

this place is where you can find great italian food. the service is great and the food is even better. the high price is worth it because of the fine quality of italian food as if you were striaght in italy. the pizza and paninis are the best and if you ever happen to be in this part of town, i recommend you go in here for some great italian food. more

Great Tiramisu 10/7/2005

I always enjoy dessert with a good cup of filtered coffee and Steps of Rome in SF definitely hits the spot. You can get a slice of tiramisu for $4.50 and enjoy a cup of coffee for $1.50. I guess it's not really cheap but a great place to bring friends or just hanging out in the city on a nice evening. They serve entrees as well but I've never been there for that. From what I've seen, portions are decent and look fresh. I definitely recommend the tiramisu or the taratufo. more

Excellent Food. 9/13/2005

I love the tiramisu here. Entrees are also good, but the tiramisu is to die for. Gotta try. The staff gives excellent customer service. I love coming to this place. I take all of my friends from out of town here. more

Be serenaded by your wait staff 7/27/2005

Great little restaurant, Can be a little busy at the weekends, but is well worth the wait. The staff are amazing, they go above and beyond, they are very polite and make you feel like a million dollars, plus they can be counted on to throw open the windows and serenade the passer bys. The food is great, very tasty and well presented. I reccomend the Chicken in a Vodka Sauce, very tasty. The actual restaurant is in a prime location, right in the heart of North Beach. more
