Fodor's Expert Review Scalo Northern Italian Grill

$$$ UNM/Nob Hill Italian

In the heart of Nob Hill, this contemporary eatery draws a crowd for its upscale sheen and its people-watching patio scene. Pasta is prepared as you like it, the wine list is deep, and menu standards like lattuga con prosciutto salad (made special with figs), fettuccine al pollo (a primi, with a piñon-strewn alfredo sauce), and secondi like vitello alla piccata are presented well. Live jazz music on Friday nights is a nice touch, but can be loud.
