“Awesome experience, food and service! Wendy took great care of us while we sat at the bar enjoying the view over the bay with the Golden Gate Bridge in the back. Food was delicious and really well flavored. Can recommend the Aperol Spritz with the sun setting.”

Michel de Ru

“This is a great location to have a nice dinner. Perfect view to the bay. Good and nice service. The food was just great. And, they have a very good selection of wine. By the way, crab cake was marvelous.”

Michael Hargas

“ We had a very tasty dinner at this fantastically located restaurant in Pier 39. While the food and service were both very good, the icing on the cake was the view and watching the sunbathing sea lions while we ate our dinner! My New York steak with veg was quite lovely, and my husband really enjoyed his crab taco, along with a very quaffable glass of Chardonnay and an excellent lime margarita. Not exactly cheap food but overall worth it for the whole experience.”

Meet our very best: the most recognized chefs

How did it all begin? With "Mamma", of course: the mother of all Giardino was opened in 1999 in Nuremberg. Since then, our recipe has proved to be a success: fresh Italian cuisine and a casual ambience.
