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.

There's no formal dress code in the restaurant. However people tend to dress up going to a restaurant in this caliber. You don't want the chandeliers in the restaurant out dress you, do you? 😉
