I had a really bad lunch here. I ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara but frankly it was inedible. It came swimming in a lake of oily/buttery thin sauce and was totally over loaded with what seemed like raw garlic. I complained to the waitress Danielle, who...More

Very simply put, this was the best meal I had in San Francisco while there for a week. They even had chianti wine. Best tasting pasta dinner! I highly recommend it. You can eat inside or outside.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
