Maybe not our favorite place in north beach, but they have gnocchi which is my favorite and sometimes hard to find. The gnocchi was good and service was alright, though slow to get started. We ordered a bottle of wine and on the 3rd try...More

My wife and I sat outside during Happy Hour for (just) a drink on our first-ever day in San Fransisco. Two menus showed different Happy Hour prices for a pint of lager (from memory, $6/$6.50 and $7/$7.50), which was odd, so I checked with the...More

This a good choice in North Beach. Service is great and the portions are aqequate. They offer a nice happy hour menu.

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.
