“Walking in San Francisco with a lil piece of Italy in your hands..”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I am Italian, this place is amazing!!! The owner still speaks Liguria's dialect and the focaccia is so good... gosh! I have to hate my self because while writing this review I've started salivating!!! You have to try it. It's also right in front of a good place for breakfast and right in the North beach area (which is the "little Italy" of San Francisco).

“Fabulous foccacia”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Unique foccacia, with a line out the door. If they don't have the one you want, pick another because they're all good.

“Awful”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

It is a bakery and not a resturant. You dont sit there.
We arrived around 13:00 and the only thing that left was a cold pizza without cheese which was not good at all. The old lady was not so pleasent and the pizza smelled like her perfume (because she wrapped the pizza with her hands!!).
To conclude, totally OVER RATED and not recommended!!

“Yummy Focacia”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

You just have to come here just to see it, little family run operation, 2 people out the front wrapping up Focacia in paper and string, while out the back you can see everyone else hard at it baking. Just made me feel like part of the neighbourhood being able to pop in with the usual crowd to get my morning Focacia - so yum!

“a special treat from another world!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Liguria Bakery makes fresh focaccia and only focaccia. There are no decorations, except for an old scale and cash register in the window. This bakery is focused solely on just one delicious product, though you can choose from about half a dozen vegetarian toppings (never any meat or cheese). This old-time bakery across from Washington Square Park in North Beach closes at 2 PM or when the focaccia runs out and let’s just say that they always close before 2, with good reason. Get there as soon as you can, no special orders, and bring cash!
