SF Weekly's Description

Tucked behind the Old Mint in a charming bit of downtown urban renewal is this small, stylish Italian restaurant in SOMA. 54 Mint features the lusty, full-flavored cooking of Sicily: bucatini with fresh sardines, fennel, and raisins; baccala (cod fish croquettes); and arancini (deep-fried rice balls flavored with saffron). The silky potato gnocchi served with a hearty meat ragu are irresistible. Desserts include a flourless chocolate cake chunky with almonds, and panna cotta splashed with aged balsamic vinegar. There's a long marble-topped bar where you can sample the almost-all-Italian wine list. The outdoor tables on the plaza are pleasant at lunch.

Tips from foursquare

  • Brian P. on 07/21/09

    be careful downstairs. it seems like a scene out of the godfather.

  • GourmetLive on 10/17/10

    Pastas were the real standout, particularly the housemade trenette w/Sicilian pesto: long noodles generously coated in a sauce of equal parts basil & tomato & studded w/coarsely chopped almonds.

  • Jenna B. on 01/18/10

    The tiramisu here is scrumptious!

  • Kenneth L. on 07/17/10

    Great authentic pasta carbonara. No cream in the recipe. Yes! :)

  • Munch On Me on 08/01/11

    The Vermentino wine pairs perfectly with Crude di Zucchine. The salad achieves a light but satisfying taste. The lemon and mint balance out the heavier flavors of the squash, cheese, and fried almonds
