If you want real authentic Italian food, don't miss Firenze By Night. Great service, friendly waiters, and very clean and reasonably priced. We recommend highly.

Absolute must to have authentic Italian while on San Fran. The award winning gnocchi was perfect. Tender in a very nice creamy tomato sauce. I opted for the chicken and prawn over penne for my entree. Excellent overall meal.

Father and son team bring a special touch to this Italian gem right at the border of Little Italy and Chinatown. Their handmade gnocchi is the best hands down that I've tried anywhere. On this past trip I was introduced to the capone which was stellar. Waitstaff are charming and personable. Visit this place every chance I get.

WOW! Can you say homemade!!! This place is legit. Placed on the outer reaches of Little Italy, and tucked between a variety of other establishments this one may be easy to miss. But I must say it is worth seeking out. The front signage is simple, and when stepping inside it was quiet, fairly plain but oozing with charm. The... More

Classic, old school Italian restaurant run by generational family; dad and son in kitchen and daughter out front! Wall photo's from by-gone days, flirty Italian waiters, great veal scaloppini.

Small restaurant nearby Washington square. Got this restaurant recommended. Outstanding gnocchi - told to be the best in San Fransisco. Try also the spinach salad! Friendly Italian waiters. As a patry of six on a Monday evening, we had to wait for 20 minutes. I advice to book a table in advance. Second course (pasta, gnocchi, risotto) around $12-15, main... More

Our concierge sent us here. A nice walk from our hotel in Fishermen's Wharf. Excellent service and good food. The gnocchi was the BEST I've ever had, including in Italy. Reasonably priced. Ordered the special of fettuccine and seafood. The seafood was not fresh....wouldn't order again. But would return just for the excellent Caesar salad and gnocchi.

Our family of five enjoyed traditional Italian fare. Favorites included the gnocchi, mushroom risotto & lasagna. Definitely save room for the dessert. We sampled multiple ones and they were all excellent.

To begin with the, the service started off very good - The waiter joked, spoke Italian, and delivered drinks and meals promptly - but it went downhill from there. The bread was half between Focaccia and Itallian bread. We understood that gnocchi was the premiere dish of this restaurant, so that is what we ordered. It was very mushy and... 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.
