We stumbled onto this lovely spot when our group of five had reserved a table at another North Beach restaurant which inexplicably closed without notice. Last minute, unreserved seating for five, on an end of the week night is not an easy thing to find....More

From the moment you walk in you realize you are in a special restaurant! Service is second to none! Food was exceptional! My only complaint is that the portion size could be bigger with respect to the price. The service is the star here! Reservations...More

Fantastic cuisine and superior service, thanks to Marco! We enjoyed 3 veal scallopini dishes, 2 pasta dishes and the veal sweetbreads — all impeccable, as was the broccoli rabe. The vino, a barbaresco, was a fine complement and the espresso with aperitif capped the experience....More

I've been coming to this great institution for about the last 7 years. I love the house pasta - perfectlly al dente rigatoni with a creamy sauce with veal, mushrooms and tomatoes. The burrata, halibut, sole and veal are also great choices. Waiters in black...More

We visited this wonderful restaurant before going to Beach Blanket Babylon which is nearby. Most of the wait staff have been with them for many, many years. It's so nice to be able to go into an elegant restaurant with bow-tied waiters, but dressed informally...More

Probably the "Go-To" Italian restaurant in North Beach. The veal dishes should be given serious consideration, simply stated: outstanding. The Maitre D' was a little uppity. Prices, however, are more in line with fine dining as compared to a local / tourist neighborhood italian restaurant.

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.
