Eyes feast on views of the San Francisco skyline from Servino's waterfront dining room and patio; though the restaurant’s staff strives to capture the vibrant spirit of a place a bit farther away. Inspired by the rustic cuisine and cozy hospitality of southern Italy, Servino embraces the homestyle warmth of Mediterranean culture while incorporating as many local ingredients as possible. Light from a wood-burning brick oven flickers in one corner of the kitchen, roasting pizzas topped with combinations such as crimini mushrooms and white truffle oil or buffalo mozzarella and green garlic. Homemade pasta dishes and hearty seafood entrees round out the menu of trans-Atlantic comfort foods. With intimate, bistro-style tables spread across earthenware tile floors, the downstairs dining area evokes the spirit of an Italian trattoria. A shaded patio section allows diners to enjoy their meals while keeping an eye on the bay's gliding sailboats and hitchhiking mermaids. In addition to accolades for its cuisine, Servino received recognition from the California Green Business Program, which honored the eatery for its commitment to eco-friendly practices and energy-conservation efforts.
With it's classic checkered tablecloths, Night Light provides a casual atmosphere in which to enjoy its selection of fine wines and craft beers. Chef complements the drink selection with wild boar salami charcuterie, fresh-baked flatbread pizzas, and lobster mac and cheese with highly appropriate seashell pasta. The real star of the menu, though, is the wine list.
The owners have plenty of practice curating a selection of fine wines, garnered at their other establishment, Wellington's Wine Bar. They offer almost two-dozen varietals of wine by glass, with vintages from France, Napa Valley, Argentina, and Italy. They expand the collection with some premium bottle-only wines, such as Chat-en-oeuf's dry yet fruity 2010 Rhone Blend, or the black currant-enriched Nickel & Nickel 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Building on an idea that first fruited in the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France, Mountain View Winery became one of California's first négociant wineries in 1978, its winemakers concocting vintages by curating, blending, and aging a harvest of grapes from rigorously vetted vineyards. Owner Angelo Pera strives to deliver a compelling product by partnering with organic growers and packaging companies and indoctrinates new or interested customers during spirit-sampling symposiums. Throughout tastings, visitors glean each grape's origin, method of production, and propensity for carpet staining.
