I was craving Mexican as the family and I were vacationing in San Francisco. My nephew lives in town and we met up for dinner. While the food was good, it was so dark and loud. I had trouble reading the menu under the dark...More

The place is not too big and has a good vibe. While I waited to my friend I had a good Margarita on the bar along with nachos and salsa. The Nachos and the salsa were great. Yeah I know it’s stupid to write about...More

I go there whenever I visit SF which is about three times a year. I like it because it a bit off the beaten path in the sense that, while located in the heart of North Beach, you would be unlikely to stumble on it...More

With no exterior signage, this was definitely a fun little find. After a day in Napa, my wife and I stopped in for a dinner bite. The food was tasty, but a bit over priced for the portions. Our wait was about 5 minutes on...More

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.

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

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.
