What a hidden gem. Found it through trip advisor and it was great. Our waiter Caspar was great and this restaurant was like a well greased family machine. Our food was awesome. Great raviolis as well as veal scallapini and pork Milanese.

We went on a Wednesday evening with a group of 6, including 2 children. Everybody enjoyed very well prepared entrees, including an extremely picky 5-year old who gobbled up his corkscrew pasta with cheese- the only meal he ate with relish in 5 days. I...More

Enjoyed an impromptu dinner here after shopping on Union. We sat outside and as some locals came out they recommended the veal so we had that and the Penne, very nice. Would recommend to others - only a short walk up from Ghirardelli

Wow! Everything about our dinner was amazing. The tortiloni with boar sauce was so good. The veal was delicious as well. A very Italian vibe and don't miss dessert!

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
