We had a wonderful dinner for six at this small and intimate restaurant. Get the garlic soup, a dish not to be missed. Also sensational was the rack of lamb. All the desserts were great as well.

I don't know what was better, the food or the drinks or the ambience or the wait staff. I felt like they treated us like we mattered to them. Thank you Piperade. Appetizers, main courses, dessert, everything was great!

Sorry, I have been since 5 years in San Sebastián, nobody would eat that food there. The old waiter was very nice, the food has much potential. The lamb was also good. The starters have been made without love? Dear Owner I know that you...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.
