Every stem of parsley dreams of the day when it will be plucked from obscurity, implemented in an artful dish, and autographed by its favorite piece of cutlery. Indulge in star-struck condiments with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of continental Italian cuisine at Aperto.

Aperto's chefs employ local and organic ingredients, including Fulton Valley poultry and wild-caught fish, to craft a seasonal menu. Dinner platters include roasted meals of Fulton Valley chicken, which adorn tables alongside french fingerling potatoes, baby summer squashes, and preserved lemons ($18). House-made sweet-corn ravioli bastes within a pesto broth ($14), and chefs ladle prawns, pepperonata, and capers atop a nest of fettuccine ($17). The lunch menu offers a host of grill-kissed panini ($8+), and brunch straddles the line between sunrise and sun-summit with a slow-braised, shredded pork hash accompanied by two eggs ($11).

Aperto's selection of sippables includes an international wine list ($7+/glass) with a particular propensity for the potent elixirs of Italy. Diners can peer through their vinous concoction with the natural light streaming through Aperto's large front windows and a palette of soft reds, yellows, and greens blankets the dining room's walls.

Aperto

Like a tree’s favorite sport, the menu at Aperto changes with the seasons, adapting to whatever local, organic ingredients are currently available—including wild-caught fish and poultry from Fulton Valley Farms. Besides the housemade pastas and entrees such as red-wine-braised beef short ribs, a selection of white and red wines pairs well with the rust- and cream-colored decor. As Meredith Brody of SF Weekly observed in 2008, the “simple but effective” furnishings include wainscot rails, framed photographs, and a large armoire where grandpas can nap after a hearty meal.

Customer Reviews

This is a gem !Worth the journey we loved the buckwheat pancakes !
David P. · January 9, 2017
Top, attentive service and creative, solid food. Not much atmosphere and the restaurant was very cold temperature-wise. But a very good experience all-around.
