At first I wasn't sure if this was an Italian restaurant, the name certainly doesn't apply that it is. This restaurant is centrally located in the Italian neighborhood of San Fran "North Beach". The service was excellent. The food was plentiful and authentic Italian. Delicious!!

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.
