I just returned home from dinner at LIttle Henry's Italian Food Restaurant on Balboa Street, San Francisco. My husband and I are stuffed & fully satisfied. Since Little Henry's is located south of Golden Gate Park in a residential neighborhood, it's very unlikely that it will ever be found or advertised in a typical tourist guide book or newspaper. Instead,... More

We were regular customers at Little Henry's on Balboa St. until we experienced some problems with their service. On several occasions as mentioned in a previous review, they did not serve us the garlic bread that accompanies the full dinner orders and on another occasion they ran out of soup by 7:30p.m. completely! After giving them a benefit of doubt... More

We called ahead and reserved a table since there were 9 of us. Service is friendly. They took our order quickly. Food came out in timely manner. Food is mostly Italian, but they have other food like chicken sandwiches and ribs. The food is just average, nothing really memorable. I ordered the linguine with clams and the clams came out...

They have managed to offer quick and huge Italian style meals- ranging from your typical spaghetti and linguini pastas to your meat dishes as veal... More

A local place in the Richmond district, this place is a favorite of the locals for many years. A place for a quick lunch or dinner, the serving are generous, and a place for a quick meal. For tourist visiting Seal Rock, which is about 15 minutes away, this is a place to eat that is inexpensive, parking not hard... More

We ate here after a long day at Golden Gate Park. I cannot believe the previous two reviews were so positive. The food was horrible. We ordered fried calamari and mozzarella for appetizers. Both were overlooked and from frozen. The clam chowder had to of been from a can - I could only eat a few spoonfuls. The salad was... More

Wow, an Asian-run Italian place. Food is good, plenty of it, and the crew friendly. Lots of cops and firemen eat here, it's easy to see why. Check it out. Cash only. Closed Tuesdays.

We were looking for a place to eat, everything was either closed or too crowed on x-mas day. We spotted this restaurant, and it was a pleasant surpise. We had a great supper there. really clean place, really good food.
