My wife and I had our first date at Capannina. We returned for our anniversary and were not disappointed. From the time we took our seats we were treated like family. The food was like being in Italy. A wonderful evening.

Lovely little neighborhood spot with yummy pastas and very friendly servers. We ate outside at one of the sidewalk tables; they have heat lamps, but we’re from Minnesota and thought the August nighttime temps were perfect. I love that this place has treats for all...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
