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

This is the one restaurant we ALWAYS visit when in San Francisco. It has an old school Italian neighborhood feel that comes complete with friendly staff and Frank Sinatra music. On this particular one-week trip, we ate at Sodini's three times. Yes, three. We had planned on it being our opening and closing nights' meals and they were. We also... More

We had dinner at Sodini's on Green St in North Beach, San Francisco last week. The prices are great, the menu consists of the "usual" classic pasta dishes, as well as pizza! The flavor, especially the "creamy tomato" sauce, was superb. This is NOT an average place for Italian food - the food was delicious!! One of the best Italian... More

Went to dinner here last night with 2 girlfriends. This restaurant is owned by one of my friend's cousin. The food was outstanding, as was the service. Fun, fun, fun. If you are in San Francisco, treat yourself. Also, great alcoholic beverages.

If you are in the North Beach area, don't miss it. What a great, friendly, casual, traditional Italian restaurant. Don't dress up, but do expect really luscious food

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.
