Made a reservation for four. Showed up and the restaurant was closed. Sign on the door said "Closed for Columbus Day". Why take reservations when you're closed? Pathetic. Went to another restaurant across the street - Caffe Macaroni, which was fantastic - and throughout our...More

I hate to leave less the glowing reviews because I would like to believe that most establishments are always trying to improve so maybe I caught them on an off night. I went for a friends birthday party. She had made a reservation for 16....More

The food was very tasty. The service was average. When we should pay the restaurant charged us twice for the tip.

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.
