I was on a business trip, solo, and tired from a cross country flight. I grabbed a walk in seat when the restaurant opened, and what a brilliant move that was. I started with the tuna tartar. Excellent, tender tuna on crisp taro crackers. I...More

We had Salmon rolls and scallops as starters, and Black Cod as main. If I could I would give this restaurant a rating of 6, as all of the above tasted marvelous. But book a table early, as it is a small restaurant and often...More

I will NEVER go here again. The owner clearly does not care about customer service and their reviews have made them feel indispensable and inflated their ego so much that they treat dissatisfied consumers with no respect. I had the worst experience I’ve ever had...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.

I believe the apps were anywhere from $5-15, the entrees ranged from maybe $12-30 roughly and desserts were probably $6-10. That is an estimate but should give you an idea.

You may call them at (415) 986-8612. Reservation is highly recommended unless you go there a few minutes before opening: 11:30 for lunch and 5:30 for dinner.

Not exactly sure what the question is here. This place is a trendy fusion restaurant. It's crawling with tech-savvy yuppies. The food is mediocre at best, and overpriced from my point of view. In SF, people go with the... More
