Trip down Memory Lane

Our second visit to this restaurant. It is a beautiful restaurant, beautifully designed and appointed. The menu is outstanding and imaginative. The food delicious. Our waiter, this time, was not quite as pleasant as the last time we visited.

We had a dinner for 20 people from all over the country planned following a meeting, and one of our local San Francisco residents chose North Beach restaurant and the prosciutto room for our private dinner. Quite an experience eating basically in the basement with about 50 hams hanging overhead! The prosciutto itself with melon was incredible. The food and... More

Just popped in for a lunch on the basis of reviews and the fact that this is run and owned by the Petroni family who have their vineyard in Glen Ellen and Sonoma and their Chardonnay is served on BA. It is delicious by the way. The service was really friendly welcoming and helpful. Delicious house salad followed by really... More

We came here for dinner on a recent Saturday night, while in the city rendezvousing with vacationing relatives from San Diego (we live an hour and a half away in Sacramento). My husband and I have been here probably 12-15 times, and have loved every experience. It truly is an excellent restaurant in the classic style of old San Francisco.... More

It's a shame they ruined what was a fine... More

This is a truly great restaurant. The food is outstanding. Everything was prepared to perfection. The cheese crackers in the bread basket are delicious and don't forget to taste their home made olive oil. We were a party of 4. We each ordered something different and all very happy with our orders. They have great wines too. I believe the... More

I haven't been here in probably 7 years. But I was happy I stopped by again. Our waiter recommended frito mists and a pasta sampler course. Both were perfect. Pasta was cooked and sauced perfectly. The osso buco melted away from the bone and the sauce was tinged perfectly with just enough acid to cut the fat.

I have dined here before the makeover several times and always good! This trip our waiter (I wish I could remember his name) was one of the top 5 that I have experienced anywhere! The new decor is delightful; go - you will enjoy!!!! John Hickey

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.
