Sometimes, takeout on the couch is just what you’re in the mood for. But other times, date night calls for the works—dim lighting, flickering candles and intimate nooks built just for two. The next time you’re in the market for a special dinner, head to a spot that serves up charming ambience and great food. We rounded up nine of the most romantic restaurants in San Francisco, including lots of pizza and pasta options…because carbs are the way to every girl’s heart.
Editor’s note: Because of the latest COVID surge, many SF restaurants—including Zazie (our top choice for this list)—are closed temporarily, and masking requirements, proof of vaccination and indoor dining restrictions are constantly changing. The restaurants on this list are working hard to adapt and follow the latest safety protocols. Before you visit, be sure to check out their websites and social accounts for the latest updates.
