“Local Restaurant with charm”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Had a large group, with reserved seating in the wine cellar,service was very good, pre planed menu with this amount of folks, chicken,fish,veal.. would rate food about a 7-8 on a 10 scale,
probably would not put this on my regular list, the wine selection is great and again service was very nice.

“The worst service ever..”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

So very disappointed in the food and service. We had reservations for a party of 6. From the moment we sat down our waiter was rude and rushed us through our very expensive meal. The portions were small, the pasta stuck together and was cold. The veal was tough. We spoke to management, he said they were busy and shrugged his shoulders. There are too many other excellent restaurants to go to in North Beach.

“Seriously Overrated - Consider Other Options”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

As a San Francisco resident I feel it's important to set the record straight about North Beach Restaurant. After my recent lunch there I couldn't believe it when I came home and found the restaurant had such positive reviews on TripAdvisor.

North Beach Restaurant does not serve "authentic" Italian food, it serves Italian/American food that is average at best with inconsistent quality. My sole was cooked nicely, although the vegetables and rice served with it were over-cooked and over-salted. My cousin's pasta dish was terrible. It was hit or miss like that all around our table. Not one of us was thrilled with our food.

Another disappointing factor was the staff. When we arrived the waiters seemed gracious enough but we soon found it was all very superficial. They were actually rather prickly and unaccommodating.

San Francisco is filled with places to get fantastic Italian food and a fine dining experience. Sadly, North Beach Restaurant is not one of them.

“nothing to write home about”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

so much anticipation, so much disappointment! From the tasteless tomatoes in my Caprese salad to the very ordinary Carpaccio then into the disappointing and small seafood pasta dish (for the price), this restaurant left me wanting much more than it offered. The highlight of the evening was the moist mouthwatering Tiramisu along with the pre meal bread. Other than that this is a very over priced average restaurant that left me feeling that we should have chosen one of the other Italian restaurants in North Beach. And there are many others....
