Walking in I was welcomed warmly. There's a nice cosy atmosphere about the restaurant. I started with the gnocchi, followed by homemade pasta. It was delicious. I accompanied it with a good wine. The evening was perfect. Highly recommended.

Wonderful service, ambiance and food! Shared the gnocchi with friends (fabulous) and had the carbonara, which was homemade and flavorful. Highly recommend this tucked away treasure—make sure you have a reservation.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
