We ate here on the evening of our arrival after a long flight from London and it was just right for weary travellers. Lovely interior with linen cloths and napkins, and very attentive service. The food was delicious - a fabulous starter of burrata, tomatoes...More

Very disappointed overall. We wanted authentic Italian food and this was recommended to us by the hotel concierge. I want to mention the parking is a shady operation. I had called to make sure they had parking, the guy said yes, $10 valet. When we...More

Tuscany inspired long time eatery. Great service although some might find overbearing. Terrific wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. Prices are on the high end but it is SF with mandatory health fees and all the stuff that happens in the city. Well worth a visit.

Bit of a disappointment after it’s great reviews. A decent family restaurant but nothing special. My wife ordered the pasta primavera and veggies tasted like they’d been frozen before cooking. My lasagna was nothing special. Given that it’s local favorite, I’m almost certain our experience...More

My wife and I were vacationing, and were told to dine at North Beach Restaurant for the best San Francisco Italian cuisine. The recommendation was spot on. We were met with a very friendly greeting, and immediately seated at our table. Our waiter was soft...More

Outstanding old school Italian Restaurant at a fair and reasonable price. Great food and wine, together with excellent service. Even had the bonus of an “A” list celebrity seating at the table next to us during a recent visit. We have enjoyed this restaurant since...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.
