We stumbled on this great little Italian restaurant as we wandered to the bay front from the cable car museum. It was brilliant, clean, extensive menu and quick service. With all food prepared in an open kitchen into the restaurant. Reasonably priced and friendly efficient service. Nice vibe! We ate inside even though it was sunny as there are extensive... More

My husband and I were in San Fran a couple of years ago and found this place on a walk. We were looking for a place to eat by our hotel and we chose this one. So, glad that we did. The food was wonderful, wine selection not bad for a small place. Would go back again!

Do you ever wish for a reasonably priced, amazingly tasty, homemade Italian meal? If so, this is the place. My family and I enjoyed a late lunch (lunch specials served until mid-pm) of various pastas -- tagliatelle, fettuccine, and more - with a gamut of succulent red & white sauces and my personal favorite, the ragu. Service was friendly, efficient,... More

Excellent meal. Very attentive staff. The meal was delicious, had the short rib parpadelle, chick parm and ravioli. Restaurant ambiance was quaint. Pleasant overall experience.

Having disembarked the big red bus this was convenient. Had lunch special. Not sure why it was special. It was Chicken alla Milanese at $14.95. Tasted good. Not greasy or chewy as snitzels sometimes are. Salad fresh and vinegerette nice. Quick even though busy. Did not experience poor service previously described.

Ate here tonight and was impressed with the buzz and friendliness of the staff, pretty host did a great job of keeping the tables full and turning over but it soon became clear it was her skill rather than the quality of food and service that kept the buzz going and business flooding in. When our mains arrived (an hour... More

We happened to pass this restaurant right after we parked and luckily the smiling hostess was outside and offered us a menu to browse. Homemade pasta sounded great, so we gave it a try-we were so glad we did!! We sat outside and had an amazing authentic meal, large portions, great service, just make sure you leave room for their...

Service was good, the pizza tasted like one you get from a kebab shop at 2am. The pizza was smothered in cheap tasting cheese on a bought in base. Shame, as everything else was decent

Across from Washington Square we were lucky enough to get window seat so we could watch the world go by. We walked in after seeing so many people in there, and we're glad we did. Fantastic Italian service (and a chance to practice my (limited) Italian) The food was bellisimo, accompanied by beautiful wine, it was a truly great meal.... More
