Madonna Mia! One of our favorite memories from growing up in North Beach. This bakery makes the best fogaccia in the country, perhaps in the world. It has much to do with the water in San Francisco. Every time we visit back home in San Francisco, I go by and pick several large slices. This is an amazing experience you... More

Excellence in all things focaccia. I especially like the onion, raisin and tomato selections. You will be served by an elderly Italian woman, or her daughter. Mum is a little moody, irritable, but I suspect that I'd probably be over the joy of retail after a 50+ year stint. The daughter is friendly, happy to make recommendations and chat, shows... More

Our first experience with Liguria was Dec. 23, our first visit to SF, years ago. There was a line of grandmothers OUT THE DOOR. My wife said, "whatever these guys are selling, it has to be AMAZING." We got in line with the grandmothers, who gave us the quick run down -- "Tell them you want a rosemary. And an... More

It's hard to find good food in the US. This is the genuine deal. Great ingredients and a wonderful woman who wraps your bread in paper with string. Buy this amazing bread, (rosemary, olive, raise) walk to the pier and buy cheese and fruit and pickles at the farmers market. Buy wine and glasses at the kitchen shop in the... More

I have been to this bakery three times over the past few years. Others have mentioned how unpleasant the people who operate the business can be. In the past and wasn't so oppressive that I had to run away screaming but I must admit that last week almost brought me to the brink. Came in with wife and my two... More

Liguria makes the most delicious focaccia. My favorite flavors are pizza and mushroom. I especially like that they can cut the focaccia to small pieces for the kids. It's also a great hit at picnics. Be warned that once Liguria sells out, they close for the day so go early. :)

Most delicious foccacia bread ever! We bought four "slabs" (pizza, mushroom, onion and rosemary/garlic) to keep in our condo and it fed us during the entire vacation. They haven't deviated from perfection is all these years. Thank you!

We arrived there around noon and they were already running out almost all the different focaccia (the guidebook we had said that this happens so we weren't surprised), so we order the garlic one and it was just delicious!!! Tasty, tender and big slice of focaccia for $5. I definitely recommend to stop there if you can.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
