We had walked all day, were really tired and just happy to finally get to the Little Italy district in San Fran. We checked TA and found this restaurant close by. It was early so we had no problem getting seated right away. The service was wonderful, the food hot and good, my pasta dish was wonderful although my husband... More

While I appreciate that for some, the Olive Garden is the standard for Italian food, we know better having traveled through Italy and living in a eastern city with a big Italian population. This place falls short even by the Olive Garden standard. The bread is stale, the soup is watery, the pasta is like "hamburger helper", the salad is... More

Excellent food all around. Started with a few salads and calamari, which was the best we had while in SF. For main dish the server recommended the seafood linguini over the special risotto, and the risotto would have had to been amazing for him to be wrong. The mussels and shrimp were cooked perfectly in a nice white wine sauce.... More

This is my first visit to this small gem in the North Beach area of San Francisco. The restaurant, while small in size is grand in atmosphere! The food was lovely, we had one order of the special fish and one of the special veal. Both great. Then there were two orders of ravioli, fair but not great. In addition... More

Absolutely the best Italian food I have had in a long time! A quaint little restaurant run and owned by an Italian family! Authentic food! The gnocchi and the carbonara are by far the best I have tasted... not to mention the service is superior! Make sure you pop in and say hi to Rosario (kinda looks like Robert Downey... More

Hearing Eyetalian as you begin to take your seat, you can feel hospitality of place. Place has more of a feel of neighborhood on east coast, as you might find I'm Boston or NYC or even Chicago. You will also notice when any party leaves there are handshakes and a thank you for coming. My server was Mike, the bartender,... More

Who knew that going to San Francisco would allow me to feel like I was back in Italy. This restaurant has provided Amarone, my favorite wine, friendly service, a lovely restaurant with a mural of Firenze, and an amazing menu with wonderful food. I got the gnocchi which was wonderful. The strachiatella was wonderful. The veal dish was so delicate... More

We had group of six. The food, service and atmosphere were all impeccable. Try the veal or fish and you won't be disappointed, but I imagine everything is excellent given their attention to detail and focus on making the customer feel at home and as if the entire evening revolves around him or her. The menu is broad enough for... More

Firenze by Night is an long time favorite in the North Beach (little Italy) area of San Francisco. I've had the famous gnocchi dish many times (always delicious) but last night I tried the Fettuccine Pesto and I'm still thinking about it a day later. True Italian pasta pesto just like in Italy. It was so good! If only my... More
