We went to this restaurant as we wandered around Little Italy. The place itself is very nicely decorated and had a bit of atmosphere when a few people got in, but service varied between excellent and uninterested. The food was inconsistent too, my Veal Parmiagano...More

What a shame. Beautiful restaurant and lovely food. Lots of veggie choice. But the service was awful. We were left waiting for ages after being seated. It took about 20 mins before a waiter came over to take our order. It took another 20 mins...More

Tourist trap but good location, as they all have it. Nice staff but food was miserable and wine was crapy and overpriced. Hostess dipped her fingers in olive oil on table and was working it in her fingers as she stood at the door!

We accidentally chosen this restaurant since we found that it provides gluten free options. It offers very authentic Italian cuisine (considering it being almost on the other side of the world), Eros Ramazotti as the background music while we were there.

We visited this restaurant as a family of 3 about 6pm in the evening so it was relatively quiet. The service was very good and the food was nice, if not spectacular. However, the chocolate desert my 11yo son had was "the best desert ever"...More

We were looking for a good Italian restaurant after a day in Sonoma when a bank teller told us about her family's place a few doors down. We were delighted that it was exactly what we hoped for. We shared the panzerotti appetizer, which came...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.
