We enjoyed this little restaurant .. found by accident while looking for something else. But, we are glad we stayed. The Chicken Marsala was amazing, and proportioned right. My wife loved her gnocchi. We did end up taking some leftovers to a homeless person around the corner, which we hope was helpful. Prices were reasonable, and a great value overall.... More

This is the kind of restaurant I would go to in North Beach when I was young and didn't have a lot of money. Good food, large portions and an unpretentious environment. We had dinner here last weekend and I loved seeing young and old enjoying this restaurant. They don't take reservations but luckily we went early and were seated... More

There are many "Italian" restaurants in North Beach--the original Italian neighborhood in SF, but Sodini's, also known as Green Valley to many, is one of the original. It has maintained its culture, its menu, the quality and authenticity. Prices are very fair, service is wonderful--you feel like you are being served by your mom! We never miss going here when...

We went here tonight for our anniversary and were treated to the meal of a lifetime. After wandering around North Beach for about an hour we circled back to this classic-looking, over 100-year-old SF staple. The atmosphere was lively and the place was filled with families, couples, and friends-tourists like us and locals, too. This was just delicious food and... More

Visited here during a recent stay in San Francisco and what a night we had. Nothing was too much for them as i am a very fussy eater. The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. Stayed behind after the meal mixing with the locals having a good time. Would visit this restaurant again if i`m ever back in... More

We were looking for a non-touristy place for dinner in Little Italy and thought Sodinis looked worth a point. OMG! Super friendly staff made us feel at home and this was clearly a popular place for San Franciscans. I had gnocchi and it's worth traveling from NZ just for that. Pizza was typically great, and the side salad my daughter... More

We loved the ambiance of this place, and the food was absolutely fantastic - I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Service was great, too. This place was exactly what I was hoping it would be.

Perfect family-ran feel Italian joint. Big portions and great atmosphere. Stumbled upon the place in Little Italy and lucked out. Exactly what I was looking for - an Italian place not trying to be fancy but serves up great food. If I'm ever in the area again I'll be back. Not a lot of tables, so have a cocktail at... More

We ate at Sodini's on a Saturday night in mid-May since we were staying at a nearby apartment. The service was good and the portions were generous. I had linguine with meatballs and meat sauce. It seemed a bit strange to have meat sauce and meatballs at the same time. I didn't like the meatball flavor--not enough spices for me,... More

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.
