A quaint, family resturant that is a big hit for the local community. Drinks are large, service is excellent without being over polished, food is plentful and there are many choices. I was surprised with the quality of the food and went with a fellow NP and her just retired Police Officer husband and we choose to eat at the... More

My daughter and I were looking for a great place to eat in San Francisco for dinner. We were on a cruise and only had one day there. We wandered around North Beach until we came upon Sodini's and knew instantly we'd found the perfect place. From the Sinatra music playing, to the Sinatra pictures hanging within, to the smell...

Basic, busy and brilliant ; an authentic Italian with a good menu of freshly made favourites. It's a bit cramped but the speedy service and great food more than make up for it. A little gem.

Crowded and noisy but the smell of great Italian dishes from the busy kitchen was incredible. We both ordered gnocchi dishes which were delicious. Didn't have room for more! Waitress seemed a little distracted and not too friendly but food worth a return visit.

Everything about this place was great. Service was fast and friendly, drinks were good, cheese ravioli was delicious, melt in your mouth gnocchi, and awesome pizza. So happy our friends brought us here, definitely looking forward to eating there again.

Classic North Beach spot w a full bar, Sinatra playing and an extensive menu of classic Italian American dishes. Recommend the tortilini carbonara and chicken parmesan. Enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Good selection of Italian red wines. Great service with lots of character.

It's been almost 20 years since I've been back to Sodini's. The last time I was at this restaurant it was called Green Valley. Walking into the restaurant, I noticed the bar hasn't changed a bit but the restaurant area has had a light face lift. The servers and hostess were very friendly. The green salad we ordered was huge... More

This was one of the best Italian meals I have ever had. After 3 nights in San Fran I stumbled on this place. Rachel our host was the best. Recommending the right meal, beer wine and serving sizes. (I hoped I tipped her well enough). When in North Beach go straight there for a meal and ask for Rachel to... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
