Planned to have Italian for lunch after the obligatory visit to Lombard street and found this restaurant unexpectedly before we encountered the main cluster in North Beach. Good, reliable Italian, al dente pasta, lightly grilled calamari and good selections of meat entrees. Meal was capped off by a nutty profiterole desert n decent Italian coffee. An excellent lunch enjoyed by... More

We sat outdoors last nite and had a great dinner, great service and wonderful food. I had the lasagna and my wife had the alfredo. Both dishes were very good, and the salads and bread were as well. beautiful

Enjoyed a wonderful meal within an easy walk of our hotel near Fisherman's Wharf. Sat at a sidewalk cafe table and enjoyed a warm October evening! The pasta was amazing and veal parmigiana tender and delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner!

The best Italian food we've ever had. It started with amazing bruschetta antipasti. I had wonderful linguini pesto with pollo and my wife had the heavenly wonderful gnocchi with Italian sausage. I was a little jealous of her choice, although I have no doubt that anything on the menu is excellent. Lastly, the service by Domencio was spot on.

This restaurant is located on Columbus Avenue in the North Beach area. North Beach is the Italian section. The food was delicious and the service was fast and friendly. To top it off, the waiters are good looking! I would recommend this restaurant.

We had a large group of 8, and our reservation had us seated immediately! We shared a couple of pizzas, a wonderful antipasto plate, and a few people had a lot of special requests on the pastas, and everything was accommodated. I high recommend this place!

After four days in San Francisco, we had hunted high and low for authentic Italian, on the Monday of our long weekend trip we found it. We were always going to share but hadn't told the waiters, half way through they were surprised we'd swapped. After two clean plates, much less upset. As is the American way, the bill is... More

My wife and had dinner outside on a beautiful evening, and was expecting so much from what we had read. Had to wait for our reserved table as there was someone seated before us. Our waiter was less then helpful. When we would ask about a dish, his response was "very good, all of our food is very good" Well,... More
