Really authentic italian restaurant

This is a great italian restaurant and as popular with locals as tourists. North beach is a great place for italian food generally and Sodini's is one of its best. If you don't want to miss out, or queue for ages, get there early as you can't reserve a table.

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place and we went out of our way to go there. It was so worth it! The food was amazing! The owner, Mark, went out of his way to make everyone feel welcome and since we had to wait a while for a table inside, he gave us some bruschetta that was the... More

I visited a few months ago and absolutely loved this place. There aren't reservations, but the staff was very accommodating to make us feel at home while we waited. I would highly recommend this meal for price point because the quality of their food is top notch! I had the pesto ravioli and loved it though it could have maybe... More

We have got to this Restaurant by a pure coincidence. As always in US, nothing goes without Reservation - and we didn´t one. So we had to wait for our table around an hour, which we decided to spend at the Sodini´s bar. And suddenly we discovered this covered charm of old San Francisco restaurant, sitting at the old bar,... More

Good classic Italian dishes. Great atmosphere. The owner and bartender were very friendly and made us feel like we were regulars from the neighborhood.

I can't say enough good stuff about this place- the cuisine rivals the homeland. There are 1,000,000 restaurants in San Francisco- you won't regret choosing this one!

My wife and I went back to San Francisco after having lived there 30 years ago and sought out our old haunts. To our pleasant surprise, the old "Green Valley Restaurant", now called by the name of the family that owns it, was still there-- and still just as good as it was! Fabuloso! We had a flight to catch,... More

We ended up at Sodini's by accident after being turned away from Soto Mare. So glad we found this friendly and comfortable atmosphere to eat great Italian food. Good bread, good pasta and good wine. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. We will bee back next time we're in town.

Sodini's is located in Little Italy on a side street, but worth the extra steps to get there. The menu says its been around over 100 years, and it feels authentic but not at all tired. The food is very well prepared, the staff friendly, and the seating quite comfortable. A number of the restaurants in the area had waits... More

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.
