Stopped in late with my girlfriend and a friend of hers that lives in the area. We had a great time consuming the complimentary awesome chips and salsa as well as some apps and a few adult beverages! Wait staff was friendly and attentive.

A friend told me about his place but he said there wasn’t a sign. He says it was one of the best undercover Mexican style food in the city and he was right. I like to eat my Mexican food in the mission but this...More

We were craving Mexican food and came across Don Pisto’s. From the minute we walked in it felt like we were brought back to a beautiful authentic little Mexican hacienda. The food was hands down, no exaggeration, the best and most memorable Mexican food we...More

This restaurant must have a new cook because we cannot understand the 4,5* rating at all. This was just embarrassing. We had the calamari and the pollo asado, both had little to no taste outside being extremely spicy. I rarely leave a restaurant grumpy, but...More

Definitely at the top of our best Mexican food list. The carnitas taco and chorizo mussels were amazing. There was overflowing nacho chips as well. Nice and friendly servers. Overall a humble but good food place.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
