This is a wonderful Italian restaurant in the heart of North Beach. They have an extensive menu which covers most anything you would expect, including the best gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce you'll find anywhere. Great service and a good value for the portions you get.

We just had an amazing lunch at US Restaurant. The food was excellent and the waitstaff attentive and friendly with ready smiles. It felt like an old fashion neighborhood lunch spot. We will be returning.

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.
