Best Overall Italian-American
If that is a category, I spent ten years with an Italian American wife, straight out of Brooklyn with an NYPD cop father. Talk about an Italian family, and boy was the food ever good - out of this world! So, when I stepped into Victor's I knew there was something to the place. The sheer tackiness of the interior, combined with no nonsense service I thought I took the wrong exit off the BQE. Victor's or Vic's as I like to call it serves up absolutely the best Italian American style food in San Francisco. This stuff is 100% delicious 100% of the time, the anti pasta is the best around and the price is right. All of the pasta's are homemade (If you don't believe me just go through the bathroom which takes you through the kitchen you will see them making it) and the sauces are out of this world. Never had a bad meal, comes with good bread, Italian American style (with butter not oil and garlic). I am going to say it is romantic, because you know what with a partner you love, a bottle of the cheap wine it's really quaint, not hipster, not pretentious , just real.
