Excellent food and excellent service. The waitress was very responsive and took great care of us. Well worth the time and money.

The food is undeniably delicious and the staff welcoming. If you don't mind noise that oscillates from lively to loud, or sitting at a table for 4 that is half an inch from a table for 2, this may be for you. But to my...More

Although we arrived with high expectations based upon previous reviews and ratings, my wife & I found the food just so-so. Blandness of the food was the predominant theme.The appetizers (avocado w/ kumquat, gem lettuce salad & tuna with blood orange) were moderately tasteless with...More

Lack of adequate selection of menu coupled with very average (and overpriced) pizza and average drinks were only partially offset by good pasta and duck dish.

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.
