Italian. "Perbacco" is an Italian word to accentuate positive comments as well as an expression of pleasure and surprise. Perbacco then is a fitting name for this San Francisco restaurant that showcases an artful blend of classic Italian cuisine with a modern sensibility. Perbacco's seasonal Northern Italian menu focuses on the refined cuisine found in the Piemonte region, such as Parpadelle or Agnello in Fricassea (lamb stew). The authentic Italian dishes are complemented by Perbaccos wine selection, featuring California as well as Italian imports.
