Cafe Bellini – San Francisco, CA

We tried Cafe Bellini based on their location and Tripadvisor rating (806/4,576). What we realized after entering is that it is really 3 restaurants in one. Different entrances but connected in the back. There is a burger joint, the cafe and a pizza spot. We sat in the cafe. It was clean and decorated in a french theme. The pastry case in the front was full of yummy enticements.

I ordered the caprese salad to start. It was bland. I drenched it in balsamic vinegar and that didn’t help. The pita bread on the side was stale.


Daughter ordered the Mediterranean platter. This was a better appetizer, though nothing to write home about. The olives and hummus were palatable. Again, not so fresh bread.


The margherita pizza was under-cooked, and wet and soggy. I asked the waiter to cook it until crispy. It came back hot but still soggy with not a bit of color on the crust.

For dessert we chose a lemon tart. The tart was very good. Lemony, fruity and a nice crust. Obviously made out of house.


Service was slow and uninterested. Too pricey for what you get. Don’t waste your time or money!
