A modern interpretation of the classic diner, Sportello (Italian for counter service) offers a menu of chef Barbara Lynch's trattoria-inspired Italian dishes for both lunch and dinner. Sportello's casual, lively, Italian spirit is captured in the sleek, minimalist design, in the cuisine - fresh pastas, creamy polenta, and simple soups - and in the supremely approachable, artisanal wine list created by wine director Cat Silirie.

Sportello's bakery and retail counter serves a selection of Italian-inspired breads and pastries baked fresh each day so Fort Point Channel dwellers and diners can stop in for a delicious treat for breakfast or lunch whether they're in the mood for a cup of organic Peruvian coffee and an impossibly flaky croissant or a sandwich from the refrigerated case.
