Me and my fiancee walked in without a reservation (found the place on yelp!), and was greeted by the nice Italian owner of the restaurant. All tables were booked, but we were kindly offered to sit at the bar - an offer we accepted :)...More

Caffe Baonecci is possibly my favorite restaurant in SF - and I estimate that I've dined at 200+ restaurants in the city. If you're two doors down, standing in an hour-long line at Sotto Mare, abandon ship and go to Caffe Baonecci instead! This is...More

Absolutely fantastic pasta, really no other way to say it. The flavors were very well balanced and the pasta almost melted in your mouth. Very well done. Enjoyed the fact that it is a small place with a home like feel. Obviously a large number...More

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.

Taste some of the most typical dishes from Lucca that you can only find in Italian houses. Our pizza has become extremely popular in the past five years for its uniqueness, with a style so diverse from other pizzas around the city that you simply must try it if you consider yourself a pizza connoisseur. If you are looking for an authentic culinary Italian experience, you found just the right place. Baonecci offers you delicious and traditional entrees from a Tuscan menu and thin-cracker, mouth-watering pizzas, each one hand rolled for you by Mamma Stefania. Baonecci offers handmade pastas made fresh everyday topped with Stefania's amazing sauces. Everything is made from scratch here. You'll be amazed by the freshness and quality of each plate and you'll be comforted by the friendly Gambaccini family who will make your experience even more "Italiana"!! We know... Our fare is not inexpensive, due to high quality ingredients used for each dish, plus for the love of an Italian woman that puts her heart in every dish that she cooks for you.. As we say in Italian " non si puo avere la botte piena e la moglie ubriaca" "you can't have both a full caraffe of wine and a drunken wife" Buon Appetito!
