This is my friend's favorite place! This restaurant is very special but we love it so much, you need to go there and see the inside. The food is really good and the ambiance is very nice, they also serve large portions and have a complete menu Can't wait to go back !

Very crowded, (christmas week).We had reservations and had to wait 45 minutes.Our server was very nice but it took way too long to get our meals. Food was o.k. I would give it another try on a "normal" weekend. Seems like this place could be better if it wasn't so crazy busy.

This amusing small cucina is definitely rooted in Sicily. The tile and mural decorations breath life into this establishment. The menu is delightful. Homemade ravioli with a verdure mixture appetizer is very flavorful. So tempted to try the gnocchi with pesto next time. Good wine list local and Italian. The desserts are yummy. Must try coffee truffle and spumoni. Gets... More

We decided to try this place out on thanksgiving evening. I am a chicken parmigiana snob & this was hands down the best I have ever had. Their marinara sauce was perfect! The chicken was perfectly cooked & the crust was perfect. The chicken wasn't too thin or too thick. The staff were fantastic & very friendly to us &... More

This place is one of the best Italian restaurants we've been to in San Francisco. We've been there several times and love it more each time. It's family style so the portions are large. The calamari is fresh and prepared perfectly. I love garlic and their garlic dishes easily outshine the stinking rose. We've had several dishes over the past... More

We loved to take out-of-town visitors here when we lived in Berkeley, and still love dining here when in town. Great Sicilian Food, huge platters of food. Doggie Bags required. All of the pastas are very good. Try the Gnocchi. The Cioppino is fantastic. And, we love the Calamari Platter. Service is very good and the decor is Italian Funky.

Fun place; empty early. Split four pastas four ways; plenty. $15 corkage fee was a nice surprise. Heart of North Beach; you can walk from here to Beach Blanket Babylon.

My wife and I revisited Cafe Sport, returning to the city after having been away for too many years. While the waiters no longer insult you, which was once part of the Cafe's local fame, the calamari remains tender and flavorful, with a good deal more than a hint of garlic. Good wine list. Good value. And now, friendly and... More

Friendly, funky and mega portions. The decoration is amusing. Food is nice but very big portions ( good for some and waste for others) Servers were nice and the best was their Spumoni.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
