Share a pizza or enjoy a portion of delicious pasta with the homemade and famous sugo full of sun and taste. Friendly staff, worth waiting for a table, seating like in Italy at a long table.

We enjoyed our dinner at Tommaso's. The friendliest staff- although they had never seen us before. The service is efficient and the food is good. The pizza has a touch of American taste, but ingredients are genuine and give a truly Italian feeling. I'd definitely recommend it.

Outstanding pizzas and the ravioli is amazing! Friends thought the marinara sauce was the best. Pesto raviolis melt in your mouth. Loved it all. The only dish that was just average was calamari, not bad, but not like the other dishes. Service was good. It's a busy place so get your name in.

We were looking for a pizza place near our hotel, and my husband found Tommaso's. The pizza and salad was really good. The service wasn't bad, but it was not over the top either. I would return based on the food alone.

Based on the T.A. reviews my wife and I set out on foot from Union Square to find and try Tommaso's. A 10 - 15 minute walk later we were there and the smallish restaurant was going full tilt. Not a problem for the friendly staff and a short wait later we were seated at our table. Carmen Crotti (I... More

Fabulous pizza and basic but well cooked Italian food. Wonderful clams, lasagna, and thin crust pizza. Justifiably crowded all the time.

After days of eating Oysters, Shrimp, Crab etc...We were craving a hearty meal. Tommaso's was just what we needed. There was festival close by in North Beach and the place was packed but somehow we got seated and didn't have to wait an hour. The Lasagna and traditional spaghetti were our favorites and the Caprese with a little Burrata hit... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
