This stylish but relatively casual Northern Italian restaurant features primarily food and wines of the region. The server was helpful and friendly and the food was richly rewarding. I particularly enjoyed the Cavatelli pasta with duck ragu and the Quail with Chanterelles. There is a...More

Wonderful Restaurant in an easy to get to location. Food was excellent (little pricey but what isn't in SF) We did not have reservations so sat at the bar and drank and ate. Bartender friendly and informative

A lovely menu portends the excellent dining experience. There are many varieties of seafood available. The appetizers of fried seafood or salads were nicely prepared and presented. The halibut was beautifully prepared. The service was attentive and added to the delight of the evening.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
