Happening and popular place. Good location in North Beach. Very good food. Good service. Decent prices. The only negative point is that the seating is a bit uncomfortable, crowded and the place is very noisy. I recommend it.

We found this place almost by accident but really enjoyed our evening. The food is excellent and the staff take real pride in the offerings and therefore describe and recommend dishes effusively. Well they might as everything we tried was excellent in quality and taste....More

I’m not sure why other people rated this place so highly. We went on a Sunday night. It was loud and we couldn’t talk to each other without shouting since we couldn’t hear each other. Also our waiter forgot to place part of our order...More

It seemed like this was the place for the locals. Very good food. We ordered way too much because it did not look like much - but there was plenty to get fed up. Another great thing was that the waiter kept bringing cold water.

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.
