We visited at Bask during lunchtime. Food was good, nothing special, really, but the sercice was extremely friendly. Especially the spanish-looking lady who took our order was excellent!

Adventurous and picky eaters alike will find something to enjoy at this spot. Great atmosphere, attentive wait staff, reasonable prices (for San Francisco) and some very unique flavors. Make a reservation as it’s an intimate spot and try the beef tounge- seriously!

We had the hamburger made of beef and lamb, Iberico-ham, 12 month old Manchego cheese, crispy onions and home made parmesan chips! It was my really, really good. A minus for the dirty menus and sticky table, but a plus for the nice staff!

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.

I'm sorry I don't know. We bought our wine there. You would have to call and ask I think.
