“Great for single dining. Outdoor or inside seating. Great specials”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Seafood special with spicy cioppinoo red sauce. Outstanding. Small cafe with great private small tables. Or groups of 4. Great value. Feels like you are in Italy.

“Delicious Food in a Warm and Welcome Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This restaurant offers delicious Italian food in a cozy atmosphere. There are two separate dining spaces and outdoor seating, but I didn't mind the tables tucked here and there. It felt cozy and intimate. The food in prepared in the exposed kitchen of one of the dining spaces, which some may enjoy. The other space is darker and a bit quieter. There were many great items on the menu, but I ended up ordering from the specials board, offering seasonal dishes, like butternut squash lasagna. Delicious meal. Would recommend for a romantic meal or dinner with friends.

“Where locals eat great Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great pizza, pasta, and salads and not super crazy prices ($12-15). Great option for carryout as well. No need to go to North Beach for good italian food!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great little place in Nob Hill area that serves fantastic Italian. Small and seating is limited with no reservations taken but well worth it.

“1st Night Meal in Nob Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were booked into another restaurant but decided to come into this one instead. We had to wait about 10 mins to get a seat but it was certainly worth it. The staff were very attentive which is just what we needed with 2 youngsters with us, who were very hungry after a long and busy day.. The food was good, wholesome and flavoursome and lots of it... It was good value for money and my husband who enjoys a drop of vino was happy with the recommended tipple to go with our meal.. I think you could say it ticked all of our boxes and would recommended it any tripadvisor viewers. We even recommended it to our hotel (The Fairmont) which is just around the corner!

Well Done Nob Hill Cafe & keep up the good work and awesome food!
