We were recommended by another Italian restaurant which was full to try Firenze. Glad we did as they were able to accommodate our small party of 3. We had a lovely Italian meal with an Italian speaking waiter who server and well prepared pastas and meats. I had the Brasiole special which was wonderfully done. Reasonable wine list and nice...

The atmosphere was wonderful. It's great when you go to an Italian restaurant and half the people in the place, including the waiters, are speaking Italian! From the time we arrived to the time we left, we felt like part of the family. I had a dish with rolled beef over veal, and my wife had the veal Marsala. Neither... More

Since coming back from my Italian vacation in November 2016, I've been on a personal Italian food pilgrimage in the SF Bay Area to find the restaurant or restaurants that will make my taste buds bow down in worship like they did when I ate in Italy. Firenze by Night was one of the first that did that. I had... More

Firenze by Night is about a block away from Columbus Avenue in North Beach. This is an area popular with tourists, but there is nothing touristy about this authentic Italian restaurant. Firenze is the Italian name for Florence, and it's well suited to this very nice restaurant. We were warmly greeted at the door and quickly shown our seat on... More

Firenze by Night is an authentic Italian restaurant in North Beach San Francisco. Everyone needs to go to. The pastas are delicious and airy. The appetizers are well portioned and easy to share. The main courses are full of flavor. We ordered the bruschetta and meat platter as appetizers, a combo pasta as the second course (ask the waiter for... More

Stopped by on a Sunday night w/o reservation party of 3 and were seated within 10 minuets . The specials really are . My husband had a fettuccine seafood that had a wonderful red sauce with so many flavors. The pasta was perfect. The veal dishes were good and there are several vegan options. The front room features a full... More

Let me begin by saying that I am an eggplant parm snob. I will NOT even eat an eggplant parm unless the eggplant is fresh. When I sank my teeth into the eggplant parm at Firenze, there was absolutely NO question that it was fresh...and probably ONE of the best eggplant park dishes I have ever had....and I have dined...

Very busy place. Recommended by our bartender at the hotel we are staying at. Well worth the $6 uber ride! Authentic Italian--- we got two of the specials and shared and both were excellent! I would come back and I recommend this place definitely!!!!

The service, the food, wine are all outstanding. The owners, servers and bartenders treat you like family and the food is served hot. We were a walk in and it didn't seem to be an issue around 8pm. If you're in San Fran, check this place out. You won't find another place like it.

Very comfortable charming atmosphere for any size group. Very attentive wait staff. Menu items are hit or miss though. The stuffed mushrooms were too few and bland. The special pork medallions in marsala wine truly had no zip or zest to the entree. Only the pappardelle with rabbit sauce plus the soft gnocchi delivered the right gusto to make it... 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.
