Italian. On trendy Union Street in San Francisco, Luisa's restaurant is a throwback to old school Italian home cooking. In a classic rough-hewn dining room with straw wrapped bottles dangling from the ceiling Luisa serves up the same old family recipes she has been preparing in restaurants since 1959. Veal and seafood are specialties at Luisa's, and pastas are homemade. During good weather, dine alfresco on the outdoor heated patio. The menu focuses on northern and central Italian cuisine.
Established in 1959, Luisa’s is a warm, romantic, cozy, Florentine atmosphere that makes one feel as though they are really in Italy. She has been cooking authentic Italian cuisine since 1959 with passion and makes all the Italian specialties in house; Luisa only selects the finest seafood and Niman Ranch organic meats. All pasta and bread is made fresh on the premises.
