We found this place a bit on accident and am so glad we did. The pasta was fantastic - you could tell it was freshly made and make it feel like a home cooked delicious meal. The service was good and friendly. The menu had just enough choices without being limited or overwhelming. I had the lasagna and it was... More

My husband really enjoyed his black squid ink spaghetti, me not so much I had a pork rib pasta it was a little spicy, and in my opinion not very flavorful. It was very noisy, in their defense there was a large group that came in, which left our service not very good.

We were pleasantly surprised by this amazing restaurant. We tried 4 different dishes and all of them were amazing. The homemade pesto and lamb sauce was amazing. We will definitely go back again.

Had a late reservation and were worn out on July 4th weekend. Small place in North Beach... Nothing fancy, but what we had was outstanding. I had the branzino which was excellent and my wife had the white fish that was equally good. Next time we'll try the dessert and enjoy a coffee, but we were spent....

Finding a place in North Beach to park and have dinner before seeing BBB is kinda hard to do, especially on a Friday night. Finding Vicoletto for a 6pm dinner was as special as seeing the show! Fighting Friday night traffic was tough but the restaurant was accommodating to our delay. We ordered the set menu and enjoyed the burrata... More

This small local restaurant offers attentive service, a somewhat limited menu but excellent homemade pasta dishes and some knockout appetizers. If you're looking for southern Italian - aka Parmigiana - or fish this is not the spot. We had two terrific appetizers - mozzarella buratta and fried eggplant balls. The Dorado served whole was okay, my linguine with crab was... More

We ma a reservation at this place after seeing it online. We had a big group and the place was accommodating. The wine list was great, and we all had good plates (recommend the burrata if available), but the restaurant was otherwise almost completely empty, and I don't understand why. This place seemed to share a kitchen with the place... 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.
