While some elegant Italian restaurants in San Francisco have excellently prepared dishes, they often miss out on the communal and social aspects of Italian cuisine. At Barbacco, guests can enjoy delicious, traditional Italian dishes in an intimate atmosphere more conducive to friends and family. Barbacco is located on California Street next door to its sister restaurant, Perbacco. While Barbacco adheres to the same high standard of quality as Perbacco, its trattoria atmosphere is ideal for a casual meal with friends or a night out without the pressures and rules of fine dining. Even the menu allows for groups to share a variety of appetizers and small dishes, or enjoy a plate of Lasanga Bolognese -- made with spinach pasta -- all to themselves. With the spirit of traditional communal dining alive and well at Barbacco, the restaurant is putting a fresh, modern twist on their food and atmosphere. For a meal that is bound to bring friends and family closer together, look no further than Barbacco.
