The meatballs come 3 to an order ($16!-- a bargain), with an accompaniment of spaghetti marinara. The night we dined, the meatball varieties presented were pork, veal, and lamb-- we chose to try them all. Each was distinctly seasoned, each went perfectly with the pasta....More

Arugala salad was just fair. Pass on the Lasagna, as you could likely make it better at home. Mine was overcooked and dry, and a small piece at that as well. Wine was ok. The plus is a neat narrow atmosphere and staff friendly. Gelato...More

Had dinner last week. Reservations are a must for dinner - it gets crowded. We had reservations and yet had to wait for over 30mts. Space is very crowded and inspite of the reservation, they squeezed us - pretty pathetic into a table for 4...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
