Finally getting around to submitting my review of this cozy little place in North Beach, that was thankfully open for lunch on Easter (a day we don't celebrate). I had a house specialty, Ravioli di Granchio, with hand-made, squid-ink striped ravioli filled with Dungeness crab meat smothered by a tasty cream sauce. It was seriously great. My mate had Gnocchi... More

Was pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of flavors in that place, the service was great, prices are unexpectedly good for spoiled San Francisco. Try their Burrata salad, you can hardly get that fresh and rich in taste stuff even in Italy. Lasagna was splendid too. Next time I will take there seafood dishes, that this place is famous with.

Great ambiance and good service. Authentic Italian old style delicious food. Had Spaghetti with Calamari and Alfredo Pomodoro - both really good. In Little Italy and close to Beach Blanket Babylon which is a must-see on a trip to San Francisco!

Right in the heart of Little Italy, this tiny restaurant serves delicious homemade everything. Mussels are fantastic, carpaccio is deliziozo as the menu says! Pastas are fresh, sauces amazing! But what you won't forget is the absolute charm of the place! Family owned since 1965. It's tiny. You'll need a rez!

This place is amazing. Adorable decor and true authentic feel. Excellent service and the food is AMAZING! They were able to take care of my gluten intolerance with a fabulous salmon and vegetable dish. The salad with what I think was burrata cheese was delightful. A must do. Loved it!!!

Stumbled upon this little restaurant among the many that dot the area. Reasonable prices, great food, extensive menu, at least 6 specials of the day and helpful staff. It may not have the fancy table clothes or stuffy wait staff but an enjoyable meal with family friendly booths and a good meal

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
