Great pastas and friendly staff!

Great, fun, friendly atmosphere. Started with a huge, fresh house salad along with a nice bottle of Toscana. Then came the gnocchi's, "pillows from heaven"! We had the gorgonzola with mushrooms and the meat sauce, both were great. The staff was interactive and helpful with menu ideas which made the... read more

This is some real San Fran authentic food and personality. The food is rich and the restaurant is jumping. Pack in and enjoy the busy bar and food service. True Italians will find this "Old School Good"

You can sense that at one time this was a great family restaurant in North Beach. The decor is old style Italian with friendly, helpful service but once the food was served we were disappointed. Bread: store-bought sourdough served cold. Balsamico on the table was rancid. Caesar salad: dressing was bland, very little parmesan. Croutons were good. Gnocchi pesto: again,... More

The place is steeped in history.... we went here because the Seafood Place three doors down was full. The Pizza's were really very disappointing. We left it after two pieces and went around the corner for dessert.... Lovely decor and should be awesome but nah...skip it.

Love the martinis here. No reservations available so plan on a couple of drinks beforehand. I have tried the majority of the menu and only thing I can't reccomend is the calamari. Opt for the steamed mussels to start and veal scallopini. Service here is genuine and treat you like family. You just can't find many places like this left... More

This swanky little hole in the wall still has the same great decor from decades ago, but all of it just adds to the charm. On one side is the bar and the other you're crammed into tiny tables. Do NOT let any of this detract from your visit because the food is incredible! Best clam pizza I've ever had... More

I would be perfectly happy to enjoy a pitcher (or two) of their house red, with their Caesar salad (anchovies on the side) and their amazing sourdough. The atmosphere is homey, with a splash of mobster, and the servers are fantastic. The rest of the food is good. Not great. Just good, but good enough to keep me coming back!

Great bar - great traditional Italian gangster type place - everything you can imagine that would make you feel like you are in a movie - this is it. And the food - just plain excellent Italian. You won't be sorry with this one.

We stumbled upon this place and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is great and the food just as good. The house salad was very impressive and unique. We loved the meal and strongly recommend this place.

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.
