This is my go to trattoria in San Francisco. The roman dishes in particular excel and offer the best in class, from the amatriciana to the cacao e pepe...the best of the best.

If you are looking for amazing fresh pasta, this is the place to be. The appetizers were delicious and our pasta rivaled that of pasta we have had in Italy!

There are a ton of Italian restaurants in the area. This is by far the best. It all started with fresh homemade pasta. A true Italian restaurant.

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.
