French. From the owners of Market Bar at Ferry Plaza and Bix, the eminent downtown supper club, Florio restaurant provides a good meal on happening Fillmore Street. Even though the location designates a Pacific Heights location, Florio would be at home in any neighborhood. Part French bistro, and part Italian trattoria, Florio keeps it simple serving up classic dishes like chicken liver pate, steak frites, roast chicken, spaghetti Bolognese, veal & ricotta meatballs and house made gelato. This is just the type of place Fillmore Streetand the rest of San Francisconeeds.
Florio is the swank spot for a very dirty martini and a great prix fixe 3-course dinner that includes a salad, choice of two entrees (recently they were delectable short ribs and wild king salmon), and a dessert all for $23.

Florio features your standard French bistro fare. You can't go wrong with the mussels in garlic and wine or the roasted Chicken.
Note: The noise level is quite high; not a great place to go if you want privacy or romance.
