Apparently, the restaurant changed ownership in January of this year and the menu has changed some. I walked in to check it out and was pleasantly surprised. I found a neighborhood gem and highly recommend it. The pizza was thin crust, somewhat crunchy due to a combination of flour. It was delicious and unique. Large, great kale salad. The staff was friendly and responsive. The background music was enjoyed. Many Italian wines to pair with meals and the owner provided insights and recommendations. There are so many fine SF Italian restaurants and this one is affordable, clean, unique with outstanding food, service, and ambience. A lucky find for me and I'll be back!

I've been to Uva Enoteca a few times for both lunch and dinner. The menu items are fantastic, and incredibly tasty. I find that the ambiance is a little flat, especially inside of the restaurant, so I do not love that about the place. That being said, if you are going only for the food, this place can't be beat.

After Christmas dinner with friends that wanted to go on Haight and I’m not familiar with this street at all so I looked up the reviews and tried this place out. I’m gluten free and meat free and they do have gluten free pasta, but when I saw the reviews on the eggplant, I had to try it! It was sooo good! Perfect, not too tangy and not too sweet! Just enough cheese (not vegan), had the beets with ricotta and mint and thought that might be weird but it went perfectly together! Everyone else said their food was amazing too! It would have made my dinner perfect if there was gluten free bread to sop up my sauce! The dessert we had the panna cotta with raspberry and corn flake crunch which also sounded weird but it works!

We love this place. Since they opened it’s been our neighborhood go to for Italian and is just consistently great. Tonight we decided to wander along Divisadero to grab a bite and every place we checked had a 30-40 minute wait. So, we shrugged our shoulders and headed to what we knew would be a solid, comforting meal. There was only one other table with diners which broke my heart but you know what? The food was still excellent, the service cheerful and we left happy.

Since they opened this has been our go to for Italian in the neighborhood. The food is consistently great and service cheerful. The menu changes a bit seasonally and is always delicious. Totally recommend!

I've dined at Uva many times in the past, and it's always been a worthwhile visit. Last night, however, for my birthday, and my friend's birthday, we assembled a group of six, and were pretty much treated like stragglers though we had a reservation, and I guess that doesn't necessarily guarantee better service or extra attention, but I feel like our waiter was passive & annoyed at us for coming in on a Wednesday night. The food is very good, albeit the portions are small, but the service was brusque and chilly. We told the waiter we used to be regulars - just a stony stare. Kitchen staff delivers dynamite bites but don't expect to be buddies with the wait staff.

I've been to Uva maybe 30 times and it never gets old. Perfect neighborhood restaurant (in the best neighborhood imo) - everything is delicious, great atmosphere, kind and knowledgeable staff. It's a go-to place to take anyone visiting SF.

We ordered the Salami pizza and Smoked Mozzarella pizza for delivery. Both arrived perfectly prepared and in exquisite presentation, almost too pretty to eat. Almost. The Salami pizza (Spicy salame, mozzarella, pecorino, calabrian chilis, san marzano tomatoes, red onions, clover honey) had a cool bit of honey that complemented the chilis so well, loved it. Maybe a touch too much honey for me but great nonetheless. The Smoked Mozzarella (Smoked mozzarella, toybox tomatoes, garlic, basil, black pepper) was just a simple, well seasoned pizza that tasted sublime. Yum. Recommend trying out, we are looking forward to trying more from their menu. Feb 2016.

Came here for my partner’s birthday. The service was excellent and they were very helpful with bringing in an outside cake. Portion sizes were good. Really enjoyed the Orecchiette pasta and spicy salami pizza.

Giving this cute little spot 2 stars, mainly because it's such a welcoming restaurant with a homey type of atmosphere and because the wine was amazing. Sadly, I can't say the same for the food or the service.The pesto burrata was the best part of our meal and it wasn't fantastic. I'd give it a 5/10 because it lacked flavor and the crostinis were so hard they were practically inedible. My friend ordered the stuffed shells and they looked really delicious! I didn't get to try them, but she finished her food and seemed satisfied with the meal.The cacio was absolutely awful. 0/10, inedible. I left probably 75-80% of the meal completely untouched. I'm used to a creamy saucy cacio, but this was literally just a lump of melted cheese in top of pasta. There was no sauce. The cheese was so thick that all of the pasta stuck together. It was so so heavy and truly not possible to finish this meal. I really wish I had gone with the pasta pomodoro instead, it looked so good. If I ever return, I'll try that instead.Our server was nowhere to be found, and didn't check on us a single time after we placed our order. We wanted dessert and to order more wine, but he wasn't around so we waited.. and waited.. and waited. Until we flagged him down for our check. It was only when he came over for the check that he asked how everything was, and if I wanted a box because I left all of my food on the plate.. eh. Judging by the other reviews, this place normally has pretty great food so maybe this was an off-night.

For our dinner at Uva Enoteca we ordered five different items and shared family style which think was perfect to try a variety of options. The chopped salad was crisp and fresh, but ultimately just pretty good. The Mushroom pizza was fantastic, with a bold mushroom flavor, and fantastic dough that will certainly satisfy your group's mushroom lovers. The spicy sausage pizza has a perfect level of spice and sizeable slices of sausage. The orecchiette pasta was creamy and al dente. The meatballs were good, but would have preferred a larger portion versus the cost. The real standout for me was the lamb bolognese! The lamb gave the sauce such a deeply savory flavor. Overall, really enjoyed Uva Enoteca as a good spot for attentive service, a nice upscale, not-too upscale atmosphere and of course tasty food.

I held a large party here this week. Plentiful food, great pricing. Excellent Service. They went above and beyond and were so friendly and hospitable.
