Where can I find Zabaglione in San Francisco?

Can anyone recommend a restaurant in San Francisco that serves zabaglione, aka zabaione, aka sabayon, etc?

It is an Italian dessert of egg yolks and wine and a few other ingredients, whipped up and served hot. The traditional presentation is to serve it overflowing in a parfait glass, which is quite dramatic. I first had it at Milano in the 80's, but it was not on their menu when I was last there. Unlike most other desserts, this has to be made to order.

I am not interested in the frozen variety or the ice cream that supposedly has the same flavor. For me, the whole point is the texture and the temperature.

Fino on Post Street is the only place in SF where I have been able to find it recently.

Is it available anywhere else?
