Loud. Elderly crowd -- we were the youngest one's there -- which is saying something trust me. I was going OMG here we go again when my "simple mixed green salad" showed up and it was excellent. And my char-grilled Bronzino (Bronzini) was as good as fish as I've had anywhere. So, happy happy happy! And service to continental standards.

Two stars for the black kale salad. Outstanding. Everything else was, to put it politely, poorly executed. The arancini were WAY too salty. The pizza came out burnt - it can happen, but.. - and wether the dough was completely bland, the sauce was extremely salty. Also, no buffalo mozzarella. The fresh mozzarella they use is tasteless. The service was anyhow fair.

Over priced with spotty service. Go to their other spot down the street. Better value.

There is practically a horde of Italian restaurants in Nob Hill and Russian Hill area. I would describe Venticello as classic, but not super inventive. But they get the basics down really good. Service was pretty awesome. Our waitress was attentive and came by frequently, but not too often that we'd get annoyed. Food was pretty good. As I said above, not terribly inventive, but delicious nonetheless. If you're looking for a hearty Italian meal without frills, this is perfect. Soft focaccia bread with olive oil/balsamic is provided when you sit. I wish the bread was warm and crusty, but it wasn't too bad otherwise. The eggplant rollatine appetizer was very good. Smothered in tomato sauce and packed with flavor. Yum. For entree, I got the fettucine with pork fennel sausage in a tomato cream sauce. This was really good. The pork sausage had a lot of flavor and wasn't drowned out by the tomato sauce. Portion was pretty good size. Slight spiciness in the sauce.

Boar stew on pappardelle was delicious... Downed with a glass of unfiltered pinot.. the name escapes me.

Great service, really generous portions, nice atmosphere. A bit on the pricier side but pleasant experience overall.
