We were in SF with extended family that we had not seen in years and we were staying in the Nob Hill area. We went to this cafe twice, once for late breakfast and once for dinner (group of 8 and 12). We showed up without reservations but did not have to wait too long for our tables. The servers were attentive and the food was delicious. It is a very cozy, comfortable cafe. It isn't so loud that it is hard to carry on a conversation. Will definitely go back when we are in SF again.

For a very reasonable price we enjoyed a lovely dinner at the cafe. Excellent service with both indoor and outdoor seating. For a tiny place it has a pretty broad menu and great atmosphere.

Walked over from Leavenworth street. We found the food here is very good and a little bit pricy .
We had the Lasagna and my daughter had Spaghetti and my wife had an Italian dish with shrimp.
All were tasty. Lunch was served with a warm bread.
Our service was adequat.

Felt like a pizza and we weren't disappointed. After a 10 min wait for a table we were seated inside as it's only a small establishment. Pizzas come as margarita and you decide from a range of traditional topping. The pizza was delicious and authentic. Sauce could have went a little closer to the edge and cooked a little longer but was still delicious. Up there with one of the nicer pizzas I've had. Also had a delicious salad of greens, candied walnuts and pear. Recommend for a bite for sure

I really enjoyed this restaurant. It was refreshing to discover a local dining experience not all that far from Union Square. The food was great, the service was attentive but not hovering. It is a small restaurant and I image there are time when the wait is very long but I think it is worth it. We lucked out on a Sunday night for dinner an were seated immediately.

Save room for dessert because the gelato/cheesecake combination is something you must try. My husband is not a cheesecake fan and even he found this dessert tasty.
