Last minute desire for cioppino and Yelp brought us to this cozy throwback to my childhood. Great retro feel, stupendous food....great ambiance! Unfortunately, live on opposite coast-look forward to next visit to Bay Area.

Saturday early evening visit recommended by our server at the wine bar across Green street. We waited 45 minutes for a table at 6:45 PM which was no problem. This is a small and casual place that touts the best Cioppino in SF. We agree.

Went there for lunch had seafood pasta with the Pomodoro sauce. It was just OK — flavor were just sort of there...the sea food was fresh, but this dish just was sort of uninspiring. Service was decent and the people were nice, but I probably...More

This restaurant serves good food but beware that when busy it has capacity downstairs where there is no atmosphere. We all (2 adults and 1 child) had seafood pasta and quality was very good. Along with 2 drinks each the bill was $96.

I’m a Seattle boy and we have some great seafood. But the cioppino here DEFINES this dish. The crab díavolo ain’t bad either!

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.

I think they will split a regular order for two persons, but I don’t think there are half orders. It’s very reasonably price and terrific.

No reservations for parties of three or less. 6pm is a good walk in time.
