I felt a little out of place being in my 40s and wearing a brightly colored outfit, but this place was very good. The patrons seemed to mostly be wearing black and be in their early 20s, but we sure weren't made to feel uncomfortable....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.
