Great food, great service

We ate here before going out to a show. We were seated at a table by the front window, so that was a nice treat. Food was good, service was good. While there, two families with strollers came in, and they were treated with respect. The concierge at our hotel came in for dinner....I can see why... read more

The waitstaff here will treat you like royalty. Excellent, personal service. The menu is outstanding and four entree specials were also available. The portions were generous. Excellent carpaccio, fresh-baked breads and fresh seafood. Delicious meal and memorable occasion. Highly recommend.

Wonderful from start to finish and one of my favorite restaurants in the City. To start, the waiter was very friendly, personable, attentive, and made us felt like home. The Calamari Vinaigrette (their specialty) was perfecto with just the right amount of "tang." The Petrale Portofino was perfectly stuffed with shrimp and crab and I could not get enough of... More

My dad lived in SFO for a couple of months and raved about North Beach. He liked the food so much he ranks his meals there as the best ever, even topping our trips to great restaurants in Florence and Madrid. So i told myself, it must be that good. For this SFO trip I decided we had to go... More

After bombing out at Sotto Mare on a Sunday afternoon (closed), we eventually ended up right around the corner at this Restaurant. Crisp service, excellent food particularly the Ravioli which my wife and I are still talking about 3 days later. It was so good, I barely remember eating anything else there. Ok maybe that extra glass of wine has... More

I'm in San Francisco three to four times a year and never miss this restaurant. Excellent service from a very professional staff. Traditional Tuscany fare served in a great Italian atmosphere, Not to be missed,

Very good service here. I had a well prepared steak, and my family had seafood and pasta. The price is well worth it at this location. Ask for a table in the wine cellar

I happened upon this place and walked in and to my delight I have found my own personal favorite place to eat. The ambiance there is truly old world and I had the opportunity after the best meal to go downstairs to see where they make their own cheese. The wait staff is by far the best and I only... More

If you want great Italian fare with a superb wine list served by a knowledgeable and friendly staff then North Beach Restaurant is a perfect fit! The prosciutto was the finest around! You may even spot a celebrity or two. We did.

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.
