“Most accomodating”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We arrived 8 handed without a reservation. The manager moved someone to fit us in on one table. Food very good price also very reasonable. A friend joined us just before we left and had a drink with us for which we were not charged. Would revisit if in the location.

“Wanted a do-over”
Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

San Francisco has Ron's of fabulous restaurants and we picked wrong. We were drawn in by the crazed Italian soccer fans but quickly realized that it wasn't worth it. The Coke was flat and the waitress didn't care. The lemonade was so sour you could barely drink it. The pizza was gross and our stomachs complained for 2 days.

“AMAZING! Quality for a great price.”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We went there because I had read that many of their items were vegan, and because we went with non-vegans, this was a great compromise. Oh but the word compromise does not describe the food. We all LOVED it, so much that we got it delivered to out hotel the next night. One of the best pastas I have ever had and I am a pasta lover to the max (including eating pasta in Italy). I can't stress it enough that you have to eat here! Oh and excellent service.

“Average Italian food ala Olive Garden.”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We were walking North Beach and spotted this on the corner. Before 4pm they have a lunch special menu so the prices brought us in the door.

My partner had a pizza margherita and i had the spaghetti carbonara. Both dishes were ok, but really nothing special. It was Olive Garden quality, so it was ok but being in Little Italy i guess we expected more.

“Eh, okay for late night”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

If you're looking for a quiet, nice sit down restaurant for a late night meal (post 12am), this will suffice. If you want good food, I would opt for a different place. Food quality was fair... the chicken linguini was stuck together though the flavor was okay. The pizza was thin crust and semi-sweet but not nearly as good as the other we had earlier in the night. Waiter was very ready to be out of there and his service was very slow and inattentive considering there was only one other table. Again, if you just want to sit quietly in that area and hour, it'll work, but don't expect fantastic food.
