Stopped in here for cannoli based on reviews. They were piped in front of me so that the shells were crisp. He added a little bit of orange peel, in simple syrup I think, added to the end. It gave it an added complexity. The...More

We stumbled upon this cafe accidentally when Mama's was just too busy, and this was an amazing discovery. Authentic Italian cafe with beautiful coffees and delicious sweet and soft pastries. Everything we ate was amazing. It's a small space with an upstairs that offers more...More

I ordered a cup of cappuccino and a plain croissant and also a small chocolate cookie. It was good. Not too expensive. Paid cash. Nothing special really. It's good for a quick light breakfast.

Ambience needs some work. Very plain colors and decor. Average coffee and pastry. Will do in a pinch. Bathroom could do with an upgrade.

Stopped in on Christmas Day on the referral of one of the local policemen. The croissants with salami, prosciutto and cheese were outstanding. The iced coffee however was overly sweet and the service very slow. I am sure it was because of the holiday, but...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.
