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.

Great Italian food restaurant in the heart of the Italian section of North Beach. Calzone was epic. Great location and atmosphere

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

I was there for breakfeast during Labor Day week end and it was a charming experience. It was a sunny and warm Saturday morning so the weather was just perfect. We had a nice table on the small terrace giving on the street and at the time we were there (around 10:00 am) we were the only customers and the... More

Excellent food but clearly a tourist trap. Food was very good but much too expensive for the ambience and service which is quite lacking. The wine is a very small pour with a basic chianti starting at $10 and up for anything else. If you're looking for Italian in SF, you could certainly do better.

Was recommended to go here by a local San Franciscan as wanted a lunch spot that was within 10-15 minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf. Service was fairly slow on an early Sunday lunchtime but we were in no rush and the food was great. They have a long list of lunchtime choices that all seemed good value. Lots of locals... More
