Went here two days in a row on a four day trip to San Francisco, that's how much we enjoyed this place. The tomato sauce is amazing, have been trying to reproduce it ever since. Anyone who appreciates the nuances of a simple tomato sauce...More

No spaghetti and meatballs here, no lasagna either. I love those foods, but this is upscale Italian, and that means choices that are not typical. There are some real hearty options here, and all the bases are covered (pastas, veal, chicken, fish). The Fetuccine all...More

This long time family owned restaurant was recommended by a friend who was there decades ago and again just a month or so ago. Still a favorite of theirs, so we tried it. Classic Italian, delicious homemade pasta and veal, lovely servers and ambience.

I’m sorry to say I found this place a bit underwhelming. My Insalata Romana was rather small and not very interesting. My fettuccine with Milanese meat sauce was very bland (maybe it is meant to be) and the lemon ricotta tart was not to my...More

Small but nice place with outstanding homemade pasta. The lamb shank was bland but well cooked. The mushroom bruschetta was outstanding. Well worth the 10 min walk downhill from Nob Hill -- but take Uber or Lyft back up.

I had Fettuccine Milanese, but it was more Bolognese and the fettuccine were fresh made. Very good! As a main, I had fish of the day, salmon with a lemon and white wine sauce. Excellent. Very friendly staff. Hope to go again soon.

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood was this neat little restaurant. Things were a little tight but that really added to the neighborhood feel. Eight of us had dinner there and everyone enjoyed the experience. We all had different menu items and all of them...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Believe that the owner and at least some of the staff are fluent in Italian. The woman who waited on us last time spoke Italian. On some visits the waiters seemed strictly anglo but I could be wrong.
