Claims to have the oldest brick oven on the West coast. Ordered a few pizzas - which came out nice and hot. A tad on the salty side. Owner and staff were very friendly.

Maybe our mistake was not ordering pizza. Caesar salad had no taste and eggplant parm and veal saltinbuca(?) were just okay. Waiter was less than friendly and service poor

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.
