Il Cane Rosso

1 Ferry Building
Ferry Building Marketplace, Shop #41
San Francisco, CA, 94111, United States
TEL: (415) 391-7599

This Ferry Building stalwart purveys its triple-S specialtiessoups, salads and sandwichesto a crowd of financial district salarymen (and women) and hungry tourists. The menu skews Italian with California-fresh local ingredients. The big breakfast sandwich of olive-oil-fried egg, pancetta, provolone, and sweet onion butter may render lunch superfluous. A daily three-course dinner features entrées like 12-hour-braised beef brisket with polenta and oven-roasted tomatoes. Il Cane Rosso’s raw lumber, cement floor, and industrial lighting combine to channel a smart, wharf-chic vibevery appropriate for a fast meal on the Embarcadero.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant's name (Italian for "red dog") is a tribute to Cody, chef-owner Lauren Kiino's three-legged rescue dog.
