Good value, good service (at least in late afternoon). The engaging Italian-accented waiter immediately seated our party of three and offered the regular menu together with a handwritten "Special Menu". We were brought an ample supply of fresh bread accompanied by a highly addictive olive oil and sweet Balsamic Vinegar dipping oil to enjoy while making our early dinner selections.... More

My daughter and I stopped in for a late lunch. I had veal piccata and my daughter had clams and linguini. Very good food and excellent service. Another lucky find as we were walking around North Beach area.

I'm a regular pizza tifosi at pellegrini's . The pizzas are great; fresh, huge and delicious. The rest of the menu looks great ( but I confess I've never got further than the pizzas). Prices are reasonable and service slick and friendly. Highly recommended.

Simple café in North Beach offering indoor casual or sidewalk seating. Simple but broad menu and all of our dishes were very good. Roasted chicken was excellent – half chicken and the breast (white meat) was very moist. The spaghetti carbonara was excellent, pasta cooked just right and creaming carbonara sauce was awesome. The Salmon was grilled – excellent and... More

The service was friendly, and the regular menu was very good, but what stood out the most was the flourless chocolate cake. My family of six dumbly decided to share a piece, and, what is normally an easy way to get dessert, became a battle of the fittest. If nothing else peaks your interest, the cake most definitely will.

Stumbled across this little place and decided to have dinner. Served quickly and food arrived quickly too. Pizza was nice and filling had to take a slice home! Good selection too.

Hopped off the Cable Car at Mason & Columbus in search of a nice Italian meal. Soon into our journey we found Piazza Pellegrini. Took a look at their menu and decided this was the spot as they have one of my favorites "Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare"on the menu. My meal came loaded with lots of mussels and a... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
