The only thing this place serves is Focaccia- which is to die for if you like breads..! If you want to not miss any flavor, you gotta rush early in the morning else they sell out really quick. (11 am you wont find anything) They have some amazing flavors- but we love the rosemary garlic, jalapeno cheese and pizza (if... More

I stopped in here to get some foccacia while most of our group waited in line for breakfast at Mama's. (The latter is a must.) The customer service is not as friendly as you'd expect for a bakery. But, ignore that and try one of their flavors. I loved the plain foccacia. You can ask to have it rolled or... More

This place never disappoints. It is always in our list for every trip to San Fran. We always get extra to bring back home to Seattle. It freezes really well.

Remember, you only go here for the focaccia, not the service okay. They only accept cash and they sell out by 11 am. They can slice it for you if you'd like. They are closed on Sundays. When I bring Liguria's focaccia to parties, everyone goes nuts over the flavors! The bread is light and fluffy with a bit of... More

Madonna Mia! One of our favorite memories from growing up in North Beach. This bakery makes the best fogaccia in the country, perhaps in the world. It has much to do with the water in San Francisco. Every time we visit back home in San Francisco, I go by and pick several large slices. This is an amazing experience you... More

Excellence in all things focaccia. I especially like the onion, raisin and tomato selections. You will be served by an elderly Italian woman, or her daughter. Mum is a little moody, irritable, but I suspect that I'd probably be over the joy of retail after a 50+ year stint. The daughter is friendly, happy to make recommendations and chat, shows... More

Old OLD Italian woman and her daughter (?) send the foccacia out the door.as.quick as folks walk in. Again, you don't get waited on as much as here ya go, pay up.and beat it but who cares? It is...

Our first experience with Liguria was Dec. 23, our first visit to SF, years ago. There was a line of grandmothers OUT THE DOOR. My wife said, "whatever these guys are selling, it has to be AMAZING."

It's hard to find good food in the US. This is the genuine deal. Great ingredients and a wonderful woman who wraps your bread in paper with string.

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.
