Best Gnocchi Ever

Our tour guide recommend Tommaso's and it was delicious. The gnocchi was fantastic. After tasting this gnocchi I look back and question myself if I have ever had real gnocchi . . . it was that good. The restaurant was not fancy and the seating was a little cramped.

On a long weekend in San Francisco and went here as this place was recommended by a local. We went on a Sunday at about 7:00pm and only had to wait about 10 minutes. We ordered the Caprese salad as an app and it was delicious. You got 6 average sized tomatoes and a generous slice of mozzarella. We ordered... More

My absolute favorite! It is always on the list when we go to SF, no matter what the occasion. We have been know to travel to Tommaso's from the Central Valley just to have dinner and turn around and go home after. It is great for a romantic dinner for two or a party of 20. There is always a... More

i have eaten many wonderful meals at Tommaso's. The family has held fast to tradition and quality. They always handle the crowded restaurant with graceful charm. The pizza is what all the new places with wood fire ovens aspire to produce. The made to order dressed salads are fresh, the roasted peppers are one of my favorites. One San Francisco... More

Tommasos is our family's favorite restaurant. We come here every time we are in town. Nothing anywhere compares. Try it and you won't regret it. Fabulous food, super friendly service and let's not forget the best pizza in San Francisco.

I spent a couple of weeks in San Francisco in November on business and this was the culinary highlight (except for discovering a pasty shop in the ferry building, being from Cornwall!) - the pizza was so good!! I had 1/2 seafood and 1/2 sliced Italian sausage on a small pizza, which was plenty at 12 inches. The seafood (king... More

The service was pretty good there was a long line but it was worth the wait. The coo coo clams were so good and the tiramisu was so good I want to go there every day. I loved it and it is totally worth going to.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood 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 neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
