Love this place! We always come by when we’re in North Beach. Sometimes we go a little out of the way just to get some tiramisu. Everything is delicious here but I have yet to find better tiramisu anywhere else!

First of all, the two girls who help us are Rebecca and Jessica. They work really hard to make sure that we get what we want quickly, even though there are generally a lot of people at this cafe. They also have a great sense...More

The cannoli at Stella's was very good: the shell was light and crisp and not too thick, the creamy filling was airy and there was enough of it. I hate to say it, but in my opinion the creamy could have been a little sweeter....More

We got lucky - one of us got the very last cannoli on display. The other one of us "settled" for a cream puff. We dined inside the cafe at one of the small tables and supplemented our snack with espresso. This cafe has the...More

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

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.
