The Most Exciting Restaurants in San Francisco Right Now

The gist: The newest restaurant from Flour+Water Hospitality Group, Penny Roma has taken over the former Central Kitchen space (in the same complex as the Flour+Water Pasta Shop), making use of the industrial-yet-warm interior and stunning, covered outdoor patio. Penny Roma has a slightly more casual approach than its predecessor, prioritizing classic dishes from all over Italy and a cozy, neighborhood vibe. The Pasta Shop also has a new enoteca menu, with small bites meant to pair with their excellent wine selection (it's also a great warm up to a meal at Penny Roma).
The food: Fresh pasta, made daily in the Pasta Shop, is the star of the show here, with classic preparations like cacio e pepe and a soul-warming bolognese alongside seasonal fare, like a roast squash tortellini. Round out your meal with raw seafood starters, seasonal antipasti and sides, and mains including house-made pork sausage with lentils and a bone-in beef ribeye.
The cost: Starters and sides are $8-$15, pastas are $18-$25, and mains are $29 and up.
