Macaroni is arguably the best authentic, Italian restaurant in North Beach! The service is impeccable, the food is divine and the wine selection is extraordinary. As the old adage goes, 'Pictures speak louder than words', so I've included some of the delicious dishes that we...More

Really tasty, albeit my dish was a bit small. Feels like some real authentic home-made cuisine, but the best part was the atmosphere and the friendliness of Marco. There's something magical about this place. Recommended.

Not sure how this restaurant received these high ratings. Limited menu and what is the deal with second floor dining room? Felt like being in a doll house. Menu and dining rooms appear not to have been updated for years.

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.
