Only two entrees on the menu. One chicken, one salmon. When we asked the bartender..."when did the salmon come in?", she had to confer with the kitchen????? .... We ordered pasta bolognese. She suggested meat balls. We affirmed her request. We were served a cream...More

Visiting San Fransico and stumbled on this place. Right away it was welcoming. They have several TV's placed in good locations. Pizza was delicious and we enjoyed Italian beer and red wine.

Great italian menu, nice wine list. Recently changed owners but the new management has thus far maintained the great aspects of this classic eatery

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
