The North Beach Restaurant is an institution in SF. Some of the best prosciutto I’ve ever had. Great selection and just plain good. Service is always great! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We enjoyed our dinner- escargot appetizer, and charcuterie. Then outstanding halibut, ossobuco and veal. We shared a tiramisu, which was delicious. Extensive wine list, try wine from their local winery! Efficient staff.

Veal parmesan and pasta with vodka sauce were swimming in grease. Waiter was rude and condescending. Was the most disappointing meal of our trip.

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.
