This place is small and has been in San Francisco a long time. You walk in and are immediately greeted by tempting creations of sugar and dough. There are a couple of tables inside and outside. A steady stream of customers come in, select a...More

What else can I say...it was excellent! Small place with a few tables, had a delicious cannoli to cap off a terrific meal (separate review of Betty Lou's Seafood).

We had a quick stop here on our food tour. We came back to try many things. Wow. The cannoli are crispy and decadent. Great cakes and tiramisu too. Nice service too.

We made a point of stopping here because of reviews by our tour guide and reviews we read online. The goods are definitely eye catching but, like a lot of bakeries, the cookies were a little stale and the cannolis were disappointing. Was hoping for...More

This is an old-style bakery that serves excellent Italian coffee and the most scrumptious cakes you ever did see.I'd say the interior hasn't changed in decades but you don't go here for the decor.It is an essential part of the San Francisco experience for us...More

We stopped here after dinner and had amazing lattes and were able to take home great pastries. The cannoli was by far my favorite but the cookies were outstanding as well. I’d definitely go back!

The tiramisu at this bakery is amazing. It is not very sweet, adequately dipped in alcohol (i guess it could be grand marnier with orange flavor) and fresh and light mascarpone cheese I wish i could try other cakes at this bakery. All look very...More

It's easy to walk right by, tiny with not-great signage. It's been there a long time, and I always try to go when I am in North Beach. Friendly service, a few tables inside and out. And the sfogliatella!!!
