TripAdvisor reviews had us make reservations at a different restaurant, but when we arrived that one was empty while up the street, at Sodini's it was packed.

Was recommended by our tour driver, Dylan's tours, and did not disappoint. Dinner was good, quick, reasonably priced and the service was great. It was fun to eat outside on the street. Reminded me of Europe. Very casual place. We walked there after a visit to Coit Tower.

We had tried to go to a bistro down the street but for some reason they were closed..... we looked up the street and saw Sodini's signage and said let's try this..... we are glad we did. Very local clientele which added a fun flavor to the evening. The food was homemade and fabulous. We had the mussels and gorgonzola... More

Sodini's is everything you would want from a nice Italian-American family restaurant. The food was great, portions huge, service super friendly and capable and the price was very satisfactory.

Local recommended Sodini's. Wait and bar staff welcomed us like we were regulars. Opened at 5pm and quickly filled up. Table service quick and friendly. Many Italian selections on the menu. Hearty sourdough bread before the meal. I had the gorgonzola gnocchi covered with gorgonzola cheese sauce. It was excellent. Reasonable prices for San Francisco. I'd go again.

Pasta and Pizza were wonderful. The atmosphere is wonderfully North Beach casual. Wine list was perfect with the menu. We can't wait to go back.

We went here on our last night in San Francisco. The food was good and the wine pours were generous. What more can you ask for? The restaurant is small and seems to fill up pretty fast so I would go early to get a table. The staff are very warm and make you feel comfortable. They were very good... More

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

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.
