Very busy place. Recommended by our bartender at the hotel we are staying at. Well worth the $6 uber ride! Authentic Italian--- we got two of the specials and shared and both were excellent! I would come back and I recommend this place definitely!!!!

The service, the food, wine are all outstanding. The owners, servers and bartenders treat you like family and the food is served hot. We were a walk in and it didn't seem to be an issue around 8pm. If you're in San Fran, check this place out. You won't find another place like it.

Very comfortable charming atmosphere for any size group. Very attentive wait staff. Menu items are hit or miss though. The stuffed mushrooms were too few and bland. The special pork medallions in marsala wine truly had no zip or zest to the entree. Only the pappardelle with rabbit sauce plus the soft gnocchi delivered the right gusto to make it... More

I could not tell you what makes it authentic. Sorry, I'm not from Italy. What I can say is that on a Tuesday night, I was served a delightful experience. The food was as if it was prepared in a kitchen....at home. The service was perfect. The time between my house salad and the main course seemed long (2, 3... More

I went to Firenze, Italy last summer and when we decided to have Italian in SF, I immediately thought of this place. I had seen it before on Yelp and it served typical dishes that we tried in Firenze so we booked it. The owner was really nice and since I know Italian it was a pleasure to speak a... More

If you are going to Little Italy to grab some Italian food, stay off the main drag (Columbus) and try the family-owned places on the side streets. Our hotel concierge recommended Firenze by Night and it did not disappoint. The owner met us at the door and made us feel at home. Our server was old-school Italian and really went... More

We were in love with this place! The employees were all Italian and knew their stuff, in fact I had my waiter order for me! Food was so good, definitely not like chain Italian restaurants!! Prices were reasonable! The atmosphere made you feel like you were back in time and exactly how you would picture a family owned, real-deal Italian... More

One of the last long time traditional Italian neighborhood restaurants left in North Beach. Nice interior setting, full service bar, great service from longtime Italian wait staff. A few of the table are squeezed in so if you’re in one of the main travel paths for waiters it can be a bit annoying. Food is excellent. We all loved our... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and the food has been good overall, but not impressive. The pasta is good- pasta dishes would be my choice over some of the other dishes we have tried. Even the specials have not been as good as the basic pasta dishes. Seafood dishes have been disappointing considering the proximity of fresh... 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.
