The food was good and the service was great. We ate at one of the tables outside and loved the people watching. The prices were pretty good for San Francisco.

We ate at Calzone for our last night in San Francisco. Great food, good service and a lovely aspect overlooking this great dining precinct. Try the Gnocchi with the Gorgonzola sauce. Its to die for

Most expensive meal on our holiday so far and the worst by far. My husband ordered the home made lasagne, which was stone cold in the middle! We sent it back and it came back out clearly having just been zapped in the microwave. It was over €20!! A lady on the table next to us, who said it use... More

The calzones are not your average stuffed pizza dough. They are flaky and light and filled with amazing ingredients. Make sure if you go with someone to order two different calzones and then split them. There are so many good choices you don't want to just have one.

Might be the best pizza I ever had. Dungeness crab pizza. Loved that this location has several choices without tomato sauce, pizza dough they offer is perfection, crisp but not burned. Inside and outside seating.

Busy atmosphere. Server always made use feel rushed to answer all of our questions and not very friendly. Food was at best "fast food" quality. Needed to ask for all extras like fresh pepper , Parmesan cheese, wine cooler and more. Clattering of dishes was loud and very disturbing to all guest we could see.

Two floors offering good Italian in the heart of little Italy (would be in trouble if they didn't!). Can even eat on the pavement, with the aid of heaters in the canopy. Crab pasta dishes really good. Pleasant and helpful staff. Interior designer had a penchant for red.

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.
