North Beach Greatest

Just possibly one of the finest Italian restaurants in North Beach. A truly hidden gem; reservations a must.

What you see is what you get at Sodini's. Great atmosphere, somewhat chaotic flow of staff and customers and great food. The clientele is a mix of locals from North Beach, the wider city and visitors. You can eat at the bar, in the rambling rooms or outside on the pavement (which we did - it has quite a slope... More

A surprise. As east coasters we were not expecting to find authentic italian and the best gnocci I've ever had. The waitress and owner were pleasant and friendly. The resteraunt was a throw back giving it a believable feel and fantasti experience.

I really like this place even if I make the occasional misstep when ordering. It's a fun, family run place with no bells and whistles and the food is always perfectly fine. Had to laugh at previous reviewer's comments about Mark - he's a flirt and a charmer, wouldn't take it so seriously. And he protected his loyal followers from... More

Still our favorite and 'go to' place in North Beach! Full of locals who know and appreciate mamma's good and hearty food. Not a place for food snobs or those in need of the new and trendy, this is pure nostalgia. Agreed, it's crowded, noisy and a bit rushed...that's Italian, right? Let the touristy places along Columbus wow them with... More

Sodini's delivers authentic Italian American cuisine with a nice and friendly atmosphere. The staff are all characters straight out of a Scorsesse film and make you feel like you're apart of the family. Highly advisable to to dine at the bar and watch the locals roll in throughout the night. Kacey & Anna are amazing bartenders.

Certainly not high new cooking italian... More

A small restaurant and bar in the North Beach section of San Francisco known as Little Italy. After a long day of travel and settling into our room we walked a few blocks and happened upon Sodini's. After walking in we were greeted with a loud hallo and welcome from Anna the bartender who asked if we wanted a table... More
