Slow Living Radio welcomes back Thomas Klein of the Fairmont San Francisco as he prepares for his next journey to Fort Worth Texas to work with Canyon Ranch.  We talk to him and his lovely wife, Barbara about their reflections and favorite things to do in San Francisco. Lorenzo Logoreci, the owner of one of their go to restaurants, the popular Italian Restaurant Allegro Romano, also joins us to tell his story and celebrate this wonderful couple.

We asked Thomas and Barbara a few questions about San Francisco favorites:

What is your favorite spot to enjoy a glass of wine (or cocktail).

Allegro Romano

Located in the gorgeous Russian Hill, Allegro Romano is the quintessential small neighborhood restaurant.  You will feel as if you have walked into a local eatery in Rome, where our owner and chef Lorenzo grew up.  Our classic Roman cuisine will delight your palette and Lorenzo will provide an experience not to be forgotten! 
Chef Lorenzo and his wife Kelly Steckelberg
Chef Lorenzo grew up in world renowned, family-owned Tre Scalini Restaurant in Piazza Navona, Rome. After opening a successful restaurant in Heidelberg, Germany, he moved to the USA where he worked as Sous-Chef a the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead, Atlanta. In 2004, Lorenzo opened Allegro Romanot. With the atmosphere of a small Roman restaurant, hidden from the tourist tracks, Allegro is where local San Franciscans enjoy dining in luxury. The secret of Allegro has slowly escaped and has now become a standard for restaurant connoisseurs, politicians and celebrities looking to have a truly wonderful dining experience. Visits from well known people are common, as Allegro has become of Clintons, George Schultz  Willie Brown, Barry Bonds, Brat Pitt, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Bob Dylan, Ben Stiller, Joe Torre, Rudolf Giuliani, Conan O'Brian, Omar Visquel, World Champion GP and Superbike Max Biaggi, Miss Italia Eleonora Pedron, and many more.

  1. These are really popular places in the city for private events for corporations like us. It can be hard to find the right venues in Los Angeles for big events. The right size, that is flexible fits well. Thanks to you.
