Welcome to CUCINA urbana, a casual Italian American Neighborhood Kitchen and Wine Shop located in the heart of Banker's Hill. The menu highlights the cuisines of various Italian regions with a distinct California ‘farm to table’ flair for which the Urban Kitchen Group has become known. Chef Joe Magnanelli is excited to preview his Italian heritage and create dishes that are fresh, simple and seasonal. Items include: antipasti, artisan pizza, pasta and piatti. Enjoy wine by the glass or visit the Wine Spectator award-winning wine shop and select a bottle from over 100 selections at retail price ($8 corkage fee applies). The space features contemporary elements and vintage artifacts creating the feel of a modern Italian kitchen combined with the history and comfort of an old rustic country farmhouse. A focus on raw, sustainable material is evident with much product coming from recycled/reclaimed local sources.

Seamlessly melding refined and rustic, vintage and contemporary, Sepia has the feel of an instant classic. The stylish space is warm and inviting, comfortable yet lively. Attention to detail runs throughout Sepia -- both in the room and on the plate -- from the custom Art Nouveau tile floor to the hand-crafted millwork and the vintage stemware. The easy elegance of the room serves as the perfect backdrop for the inventive American cuisine. Chef Andrew Zimmerman's product-driven, seasonal menu showcases the purity and quality of the ingredients, letting both the ingredients and his passion for what he does shine through. Sepia celebrates tradition – with a modern twist.

"Excellent on all counts. Refined cuisine - preparations are excellent combinations of flavors; inventive and just plain good. Every course consistently over-achieves. Exceptional service makes it a real pleasure - not overbearing but always available. Very well-informed staff; truly hospitable. Plus it's a cool space. I'm there whenever I'm in Chicago."

A testament to the Bay Area's local bounty, Radius sources its ingredients from within a 100-mile radius of its SoMa neighborhood digs. This duo of casual cafe and full-service restaurant make an ideal lunch stop, drink haven, or destination dinner venue.

"Fabulous. Warm, welcoming, excellent and interesting cuisine. Service was casual but great.
Note to non-locals: BYOB. They will point you to Public up the street for a great selection of wine.
