Directing the kitchen of one of San Francisco’s best-known and loved-by-locals restaurants, our Executive Chef Larry Finn comes from the school of less is more. Deceptively simple recipes. The freshest, purest ingredients sourced from top local purveyors. And a commitment to maintaining the centuries-old foundation that goes into Italy’s bella cucina, or beautiful kitchen. His creative menus look to tradition for their foundation, but are re-imagined with his own inspired flavorful interpretations (think Gorgonzola + Pear Pizzetta featuring red wine poached pears) to create sheer delight at your table. Chef Larry’s passion for seasonal cuisine is also fused with an Old World approach that includes a woodfired oven and earthen cookware to turn his rustic Italian specialties into a stellar San Francisco dining experience.
