Restaurant Details

This tiny Italian bistro defines itself as a neighborhood restaurant, albeit one for the Russian Hill residents who most appreciate white tablecloths and milk-glass chandeliers. Alexander Alioto - yeah, he's from S.F.'s politic-and-food-focused clan - aims at doing right by the classics. Dishes like housemade fettuccine carbonara and duck breast with sweet-sour braised cabbage demonstrate the chef's European training, and his menu is peppered with all the names of the local producers he places orders with. While Seven Hills' inexperienced service can be off-putting, Alexander's technique is sure. And his house-made ricotta backs the restaurant's brightest stars. Drizzled with honey, it's the restaurant's best dessert; a ricotta-stuffed raviolo uovo crowned with an egg yolk and served with truffled brown butter is an opulent flight of fancy.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
