This cannoli was amazing. They make them fresh in front of you, so they're not sitting and never soggy. They finish it with a little candied orange drizzle which is the perfect compliment to the chocolate.

We went for a coffee after breakfast. The Danesi latte was great. Also had a taste of one of the delicious Italian sodas. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Excellent latte, I wish that I had ordered the largest cup. Such a big difference from Starbucks! The real deal. The tiramisu was excellent as well. An great place to stop if you're looking for a great cup of coffee.

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.
