The title of the article I read in the Sunday NY Times this morning. Having visited SF this Oct. it peaked my interest. In a nutshell the writer said "there are small places that don't advertise, that develop undercover reputations among those in the know who pass through or live in the hills around town". The three places were Aqua Santa,Trattoria Nostrani and Kasa Soba. Needless to say they each sounded wonderful.Had I read this before I arrived no doubt I would have tried at least one if not all based on his reviews. Just wondered if anyone from the area would agree?
