I went here a few months ago and enjoyed a nice steak special. I had planned to return here and enjoy another good meal, but the prices were outrageous this time. There were no good specials, in fact the special prices were more expensive than most places regular prices. After looking at the menus we left without ordering.

Arrived early evening as the place was getting ready for dinner, we sat outside on the pavement in the warm sunshine people watching. We were the first people there, we split a smoked salmon pizza (outstanding) and had a decent measure of well priced prosecco and an equally well priced local Syrah which was delicious. Highly recommend this place. It... More

Waiter never came back to check on us after food was delivered. No refills on water. When we brought this to the attention of the manager he could not have cared less. He said he saw us eating and assumed the food was fine...it was not.

Outstanding good, really good quality and very fresh. Of course it is the American version of Italian, which means it dish was between two and three times the size of what the same dish would be Italy. Great service as well.

On a recent very busy Saturday night in North Beach, we decided to wait at this restaurant after wandering through the crowds on Columbus Av. So glad we did. The wait for an inside table was not too bad and we were able to check out the menu while standing outside. The restaurant is older, but clean. Nice atmosphere with... More

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
