I loved this restaurant because it was top table without the pomp and ceremony. I ordered the oysters for starters which is always a risk for a first time. They were delicious, salty and succulent. The service was great, the wine list albeit large was...More

We enjoyed one of the best Italian meals at Capannina. Make sure you make reservations, as it is a popular dining spot. The polipo alla griglio was so tender and full of flavor. The veal scaloppini with black truffles was delicious.

It is a beautiful restaurant on a lovely street but nothing else about it is more than average. We ate there with our two children and felt like we were imposing on the waitstaff. I had the pork cutlets and my husband had the seabass,...More

Great food, fun little place, don't plan to park nearby unless you have amazing karma. Delicious Italian cuisine with large portions, shareable. Great overall experience. The burrata was wonderful as was the risotto con vongole.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
