YesAbout DuccaLocated in the Westin Hotel on Market Street, Ducca provides an inviting transformation from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco to a soothing and intimate environment. Ducca has been offering an enjoyable dining experience since its opening in 2008, where Executive Chef Erica Holland-Toll crafts a variety of Northern Italian dishes that are designed to leave even the most discriminating foodie satisfied.


A prominent marble bar opposite a rotunda lounge area welcomes guests as they step inside, with translucent silk-screened partitions separating the lounge from the main room. The restaurant’s name derives from the word ‘doge,’ also known as a duke or ducca. Decorative inspirations from this period of early Venetian rulers are seen in every corner of the restaurant, along with a subtle mix of contemporary accents. Various works by famous artists adorn the walls; and once recognized by our party, they quickly became a topic of conversation. One can choose to dine under the sparkling chandeliers or enjoy the popular style of bar dining, as often seen in the Veneto region. Take note of the copper-dipped forks placed in honor of the Venetians. Not only were they some of the first Europeans to use the modern fork, but they were also some of the first to consider the relationship between dishes and how they are served in courses.


The bartender provided a warm welcome as my guests and I slid onto the comfortable, sleek barstools. While we browsed the lounge menu he brought over a small bowl of crackers for us to munch on. The menu ranges from casual starters like the crispy risotto fritters to classy, California-influenced house-made pastas and entrees such as Linguine with Clam Sauce and Berkshire Pork Scallopine. My eyes went next to the wine list, which highlights the dual regional influence of Italian and California vintages offered by the glass and bottle. With an outstanding variety of both reds and whites, one is sure to locate a familiar wine or discover new favorite.
