Why We Like This Place

Kuleto’s has long been a local favorite for its Italian cuisine, but the restaurant also serves up a quintessential San Francisco experience. Located just off Union Square, it’s part of the energetic heart of The City: Theater-goers, shoppers and visitors from all over the world give the surrounding streets a cosmopolitan buzz, and the Powell Street cable car runs right past its front door.

If you’re planning a rehearsal dinner, bachelor/bachelorette weekend, wedding brunch, reception, anniversary party or meeting, Kuleto’s offers several event spaces. All of them are easily accessed in the adjoining Villa Florence Hotel, a historic boutique establishment with its own distinctive Italian ambiance. Plate glass partitions are all that separate the restaurant from the hotel’s lobby and wine bar, a charming place for a cocktail reception. Decorated in Italian Renaissance hues of crimson, gold, violet and bronze, it features a Medici-style fireplace and mural of 16th-century Florence.

For complete privacy, Kuleto’s has four additional dining rooms elsewhere in the hotel. The Board Room, which has its own bar/reception area, is the most intimate. The Caruso Room accommodates executive luncheons or family gatherings at one long dramatic table, and the Da Vinci Room seats up to 16 guests. The Machiavelli Room is the largest space, with comfortable seating at round tables. All four rooms feature traditional Italian artwork and mirrors on the walls, as well as mahogany wainscoting and trim.

They also enjoy the same high-caliber cuisine and service that have made Kuleto’s a San Francisco destination for Italian food lovers. Executive Chef Robert Helstrom puts together menus that showcase classic Italian dishes and feature fresh seasonal and regional vegetables, fish and meats.

With its creative menu and prime downtown location, Kuleto’s has that rare ability to deliver the essence of culinary Italy and the flavor of San Francisco at the same time.
