If you are searching for one of the best and creative lasagnas, try the fabulous short rib lasagna at Luella. Besides this entrée, you'll find the ambience captures that local Russian Hill neighborhood feel. Service is very good and the menu is equally creative.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
