Had dinner the other night at one of San Francisco’s gem restaurants, Allegro Romano. This charming jewel box space located at Jones and Broadway is well known to insiders and is a favorite spot for local concierges to recommend for a delicious and intimate dinner. For us, it was the perfect space for a birthday dinner for six.
Under chef-owner Lorenzo Logoreci, this 32 seat space feels like you have stepped into a small Roman restaurant. We immediately started with the grilled bruschetta with garlic and tomatoes followed with beef carpaccio with truffle oil. Other dishes that made it around the table were rigatoni with pancetta (house specialty), Dover sole over black olive risotto and a Black Angus filet with porcini mushrooms and Barolo sauce. Knock out pasta dish—fettuccini alfredo with freshly shaved truffles—special that night, and absolutely delicious!
