    Food was pretty good, but not worth the money. Service was bad. Had to flag down the waiter to place my order, get water, and had to ask three times for a glass of wine. Used to be a destination spot. Not anymore.

    I made a reservation for one and ate by myself. The food was delicious when I finally got a waiter’s attention. It was very difficult the entire night. I was finally able to order wine and it took a long time to arrive. The waiter said she thought I was waiting for someone even though there was no extra/empty place setting beside me or at my table. Then I waited another 20 minutes before I could catch someone’s eye and force them to take my dinner order. After my meal I asked the waiter for take away boxes and she said she’d bring them right up. Well they didn’t come and after watching her give several other people boxes, etc, for 15 minutes, I waved over the manager and asked for a box. I really wanted to get out of there at the end and I felt like a hostage. The times in this post are not estimates. I looked at my watch the entire time. Anyway, if you’re a woman dining alone, I don’t recommend this place. It made me feel invisible and terrible.

    Meatballs were a disappointment. Pro: light , con: lack of flavor/seasoning. Tomato salad with fresh Buratta was 🔥🔥🔥. Pizza was burnt and lacking flavor but points for the scissors to cut slices. Dessert was great. Chocolate tart was very very rich but a hue portion could of been shared with 4 people easily. The server seemed to be annoyed that we ordered so much. Just gave us the vibe of get out of here as he asked if we wanted check several times with out even showing dessert menu.For that interaction it killed the vibe. Would come back as the ambiance and setting was perfect for a night out.

    Great neighborhood restaurant with delicious food. Very busy so device was a little slow but gave us time to relax and enjoy the food. We had an outdoor table that was on the street so a bit noisy but enjoyable.

    Another fabulous dinner at A16!! Beautiful night to eat outside on the sidewalk and people watch on Chestnut Street. Celebrated our anniversary with prosecco and a wonderful meal! Olives, shishito peppers, arugula salad, green salad, burrata with crostini (one of the best combinations EVER!) and parpadelle with pork. Can never go wrong with A16!!

    Service was brusk and poor. Waiter failed to remember order correctly and my wife had to eat after all of us were finished. Waiter tried to make it up by brining a lot of free wine but you can only drink so much. Food was alright but not very Italian (main entrees). Perhaps stick to the pizza. If you want a better rustic Italian experience and better food, go to Bella Trattoria.

    The food was good and the server was ok. I am giving it a 4 out of 5 stars as we were a group of 3 ladies and when he brought the bill ha never mentioned that he already included a 20 percent tip for himself. I thought chipping with something that the customer decided not the server. We were all put off by what he did. I initially noticed the line for additional tip on my credit card receipt and re-checked the bill and sure enough he had already added a 20% gratuity. Will definitely think twice about eating here again

    One of my favorites. Unfortunately just hasn’t held the pace it once had the last couple visits for me. Some of the Food was perfect and just as it’s always been, while other dishes were delivered cold to table (in particular a pork chop presented wonderfully with and exquisite crust, only to be dry and cold. Bad combo). Beans that used to almost scorch my mouth, also strangely below room temp. Had a server take an unusually long amount of time to bring a second glass of wine, which I understand as it was very busy. Unfortunately on delivery (by a different staff memeber, helping I’m sure) it was the same varietal as the first glass I had ordered, and not the frappato I’d asked for. Mistakes happen, lost in translation, it didn’t bother me until I felt via a sardonic apology that this was my mistake. Ouch. Nonetheless, it’s as charming and busy as it ever was. Hopefully it’s just a blip or a miss that busy night.

    The worst service in San Francisco. Stuff were rude and gave us a tiny table (max 4p) for 6 - even tho there were other available tables. The food was average and nothing to do with Italian cuisine. There are many other good options in the city.

    The restaurant is VERY BUSY! There are several crowded tables inside. The park-let may be the best place to be. In the back there a few tables but, they are all pretty cramped. One table is at a significant lean and the chairs are wobbly. I am not sure if they have out grown their space or just need to put as many tables as possible in the restaurant to maximize revenue? The restaurant is VERY noisy and there is not significant enough distance from your neighbor to not be included in their conversation. The automatic 20% gratuity is almost guaranteed poor service. Our server seemed to be training someone. Even they looked annoyed at the lack of competence. Our server admittedly forgot to put in our order and had to come back for us to repeat our order for them to put into the kitchen. Once food was dropped we were forgotten about until the next course came and once finished they forgot to bring us the leftovers. At that point we were too annoyed to ask just left. The food was delicious though the pizzas came uncut with a pair of scissors for us each to hack out our own slices as we saw fit. The pasta was a bit over cooked for our liking and the filling for the cannoli was a bit too sweet and overwhelmed with orange. The budino tart was perfection and we would highly recommend. Though I am not sure if I would be willing to navigate an evening of poor service, in an overcrowded restaurant to get there.

    It was a horrible and very brief visit. We arrived on time. The hostess was flat and silent and almost comatose. Les us to a table in the back. Very very noisy. When I asked to sit at a different deuce she picked up the menus, put them on the. We table and walked away without a word. In a few minutes the waiter came and slammed water into empty water glasses. Spilling a fair amount. And walked away. I asked for a rag to clean it up with and he threw me a napkin from a nearby table. All this left is feeling unwelcome. We walked out. Spoke to the manager. Told her what happened. She apologized saying “I am sorry to hear that we’ve had such a great day.” Won’t go back. Won’t recommend.

    We hadn't been there since it opened many years ago. The food was excellent, the wine list extensive, and outside dining now available. I would have given it a perfect score but Chestnut street was quite a madhouse that night (maybe because it was a Friday night?) so I wouldn't return on a weekend again.

    Pizza is excellent, outstanding selection of wine. We got the lamb pappardelle and it was very sub par. Hard noodles, dry meat and no flavor. Luckily the pizza was Amazing. Fantastic flavor, pillow soft crust, and just the right amount of heat. The service was awful, our waiter did not visit our table one time after the entree was dropped off. Even after we sent the pasta back she did not come by. I was blown away by being completely ignored. Delicious pizza, quality wine, and horrible service

    We celebrated my husbands birthday at A-16. There were 3 of us dining. We received the bottle of wine 25 minutes after we placed our order. Since it had taken so long to receive we placed our entire order at once. The waiter did not provide any feedback or give us any direction. We were eating family style and under ordered. Between the salad and pasta we requested a single glass of wine. It did not come until after the pizza and pasta. We tried to cancel it but they brought it anyway. They need a broader price point for their wine menu. Go to Roma Antica for Italian it is much better.

    I sat in the parklet. Service was very slow and hard to get a waiter to come by. My napkin was dirty, so I asked for another and was given another dirty napkin. The parklet is sloped, and so was our table, so we couldnt put our wine down without it sliding off. Our server gave us a rec. on wine and it was not very good. Food: skip the insalata de mare. arugula salad was decent, but could use a punchier dressing. Peppardelle was weak/undercooked Pizza was the highlight by far - good pizza, great chewy dough. Really the only redeeming part of the meal. Hopefully the inside dining experience is better, but I would not come back here to sit in the parklet.

    Our server literally spent about 1 minute total for the entire time we were there, and I do realize that it was busy and they were understaffed. The food (papardelle with lamb) was tasteless and uninteresting. This restaurant has really gone downhill, sadly.
