I love grabbing a slab of Foccaccia for the weekend. Go early. They frequently sell out of most everything before closing. The ladies can seem gruff (mother/daughter team). The place has been here forever and it feels like stepping back in time. They are great at what they do.

It truly is a bakery. No place to sit down. Just go to the counter and order the very best focaccia bread you'll ever taste. It's old time Italian family owners have been there forever. Go buy a slice of heaven and walk across the street to a Washington Square Park bench to eat it. On the mornings of holidays, the line goes around the block with shoppers picking up special orders to go with their holiday meals. Locals from North Beach know it as Sorocco's.

I was able to go in the morning & had the olive - cut up, to munch on - very yummy!...& reasonable. I have to try their other varieties the next time I visit.

My grandparents went here for their foccacia; my parents went here for their foccacia; and, I go here for my foccacia. Liguria's foccacia is a holiday favorite - every Thanksgiving and Christmas it is on our table....but that means I line up at 4 am the day before in order to get my supply (as does about half the State of California it appears). My favorite is the pizza, but the green onion; olive; plain and their new jalepeno are fantastic as well. It is hit or miss on the "service with a smile" during the holidays - but since they are probably starting their work day at 1:00 am and waiting on hundreds of people before most of the world wakes up, it makes sense. I have traveled Italy many times, and have been in the Liguria region multiple times - and to be honest, this bakery beats Italy's best (although in Portofino, the plain foccacia we found was very similar). Get in early because once they sell out for the day - the shop closes.
