This was my last stop in a recent San Francisco trip, and as I arrived, it was extremely busy - so I took that was an encouraging sign. I did call in to try to reserve a spot for myself, but they'll only reserve tables...More

I cannot describe in plain words how much we enjoyed our entrees in this restaurant. Their pasta was loaded with seafood. For a very reasonable price. Seafood risotto was just as delicious. Two thumbs up from me and both of my friends I dine here...More

Came here for the first time with my sister and we sat at the bar. We ordered Cioppino for two, oysters and a wedge salad. We loved everything. It's a very small place that gets crowded fast. I recommend going early. You won't be disappointed...More

I was really keen to eat here after reading all these recommendations but I can only rate my Linguine with seafood with 3 stars. The white sauce was without any wine not enough salt and without any chili. With very little more effort the result...More

This place was amazing! Food was great and such a cool atmosphere! We were out of towners but they made us feel like locals!

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.

I think they will split a regular order for two persons, but I don’t think there are half orders. It’s very reasonably price and terrific.
