If gnocchi is on a menu, I'm ordering it! So of coarse I had to order the homemade gnocchi...which was excellent. My husband had a calzone, figuring since the place is called Calzone's it better be good. It was THE best calzone we ever tasted! It was light, not too doughy, the filling was tasty. Service was extremely fast, friendly,... More

Visiting nephew from out of town. Nice Italian meal. Casual ambiance. Limited beverage menu. Food was very rich. A little cramped. Too cold for outdoor seating which would have probably been more fun. Friendly staff.

This area of North Beach has many choices for Italian food. It wasn't a hugh place, but there was adequate seating including outdoor seating. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. The service was attentive. It was nice to see the government "cost of doing business" surcharge was included in the price of the meal. A lot... More

The food was fresh, the portions large, and the service was decent. Our problem was that the chicken on the pasta smelled very chickeny if that’s even possible. Also, the noodles are made from scratch but we thought they were too thick and chewy. We liked the restaurant ambiance - we ate on the sidewalk. It was easy to get... More

Great little restaurant, we made a reservation otherwise you might have a wait to get in. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meals. I just wanted regular spaghetti with meat sauce but it did not seem to be on the menu. I did enjoy my Italian pot stickers though.

We found this on a walk back from the Port to Union Square area. It was a clear day and managed to gain a sidewalk table. Service and food were excellent. Highly recommend their pizzas!

Description
It doesn’t get more local than Calzone's, in the heart of North Beach. Whether you're sitting outside at the heated cafe tables or inside in one of the comfy booths, this sparkling bistro with a decidedly Cal-Euro atmosphere is the perfect place for watching eclectic locals mix with visitors drawn by North Beach's reputation as the hip place to see and be seen.

The restaurant has been owned and operated by the same North Beach native since 1986 and is open 365 days a year, serving food continuously from 11:30 am until 1:00 am.

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.
