Fodor's Expert Review 54 Mint

$$$ SoMa Italian
Overlooking the always interesting Mint Plaza, a busy European-style plaza that surrounds the former U.S. Mint, this brick-walled, cozy-modern restaurant is one of San Francisco's best examples of a Roman trattoria, with both rustic traditional cooking and gentle spins on classic recipes. The exceptional cocktails by Jacopo Rosito are worth a trip on their own, and diners can wrap up dinner properly with an amaro and an espresso—this place truly feels and tastes like Rome. In more of a pizza than a pasta mood? 54 Mint's sibling, Montesacro, a block away, introduced the city to pinsas, an oval sibling to pizza.
