We did not have a reservation but managed to get the only free table. The Bruchetta was the best we have had and the Home made Lasagna excellent. Fortunately we ordered both dishes to share as otherwise there would have been a lot wasted. Obviously...More

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.
