Union Square Restaurants’ Reigning Italian

For two decades, Scala’s Bistro has won over the discerning palates of locals and visitors alike with rustic Italian cuisine presented on a chef-driven seasonal menu. In a city known for its sizzling restaurant scene, it’s a source of genuine pride that Scala’s Bistro continues to be a go-to venue for savvy diners seeking to be dazzled with specialties like butternut squash gnocchi and Gorgonzola + pear pizzetta, each authentically interpreted with market-fresh ingredients.

Paired with a setting that feels like Europe without the jetlag — high ceilings, richly colored floor tiles, white linen tablecloths and a semi-open kitchen – Scala’s Bistro creates an experience that’s your ticket to a memorable evening of inspired San Francisco dining.
