Everything is perfect here. Ambience very sober and chic. The sequence is perfect, fresh and top knotch products. We were there on a special occasion and the menu was particular. In every detail. The lobster with caviar delicate. Dinner took around three hours, but was...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.
