I had an excellent dinner in less than 45 minutes with a great lasagna and desert for 25$. The only issue is that the desert they call Coppa Catalana is not actually such thing, but is close and taste greate!

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.
