I've got to say that this was the most surprising restaurant experience I've ever had! I found this place on Trip Advisor because I wanted Italian food (and wine). When I got there, we were late for our reservation. The line was long and the...More

Enjoyed an impromptu dinner here after shopping on Union. We sat outside and as some locals came out they recommended the veal so we had that and the Penne, very nice. Would recommend to others - only a short walk up from Ghirardelli

Really nice, small and legit Italian cuisine and vibe in CowHollow. Great dinner on a calm Monday night. I enjoyed a tasty spaghetti with clams, and my dinner mates enjoyed their (different) entrees very much as well. Charming and attentive service. Highly recommend.

We found this restaurant by chance and really struck lucky. This is the best Italian restaurant we have found in this area of San Francisco. Not cheap but it was well worth "splashing out"!

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
