Our family feasted on authentic Italian cuisine. We loved the pastas, veal, bistecca, and fish. A great find in SoMa. Highly recommended.

Recommended by friends when we visited SF, it was the perfect spot - non-tourist restaurant. Limited seating, fast and friendly service, and the food super. Crusty warm bread, perfect pasta, delish lambshank.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
