Tucked away in a residential neighborhood was this neat little restaurant. Things were a little tight but that really added to the neighborhood feel. Eight of us had dinner there and everyone enjoyed the experience. We all had different menu items and all of them...More

Atmosphere is quaint, staff is friendly, vast selection of wine, portions are ridiculously small- I was hungry an hour later. Food was decent but if you're not full then it's not satisfying, plain and simple.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Believe that the owner and at least some of the staff are fluent in Italian. The woman who waited on us last time spoke Italian. On some visits the waiters seemed strictly anglo but I could be wrong.
