Awesome facility. Had dinner nearby and found ourselves in this super friendly establishment. Very helpful and the samples provided really helped with our choices. I would encourage all in the area to try this awesome "sweet" shop.

Even if you don't like fudge, you'll like this fudge. So many varieties! Known for their 7-layer fudge featured on the Cooking Channel. It is truly a must. Worth a trip to S.F. just for that! Absolutely delicious! Generous samples, too. There's also a large...More

I frequent Z Cioccolato any time I'm in the old North Beach area, mainly because it smells amazing in there and they have a hilarious (and also slightly irreverent) candy-related gift shelf. I've purchased many tasty gifts there over the years. I wanted to write...More

Stopped by here on a food tour. Really enjoyed speaking with Mike and him telling us about the different flavors and how they are made. Creamy and creative, stop by and have a sample!

We came acrossed this candy store while walking around and went in to take a peek. Walls and walls of candies, chocolates and fudge. Creatively decorated and smelled like heaven, but very tight and traffic flow was not user-friendly. After visiting, sampling and buying a...More

Honestly guys, this place is the bomb. The fudge blew my mind, I felt like having had fudge from the south west of the UK, it couldn't be topped, but this place is epic. I don't know what kind of devils work they're using to...More

Lots of candy by the pound, especially salt water taffy: many flavors as well as oldie but goodies like jelly beans. I found the taffy colorful looking but unfortunately bland. The fudge....oh my goodness, more than a dozen different types. Plain chocolate was divine. On...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
