I have not had real Italian like this since I was in Italy. The service was great, it is a real family feel. We had the pizza, burrata, the Bolognese and lasagna as a group. EVERYTHING was outstanding! GO!

This should be ranked No. 1 for Italian food in San Francisco. Can't get more authentic since the female chef is Italian. Stefania cooks while her husband and son run the restaurant; they were all born in northern Italy and San Francisco is lucky to...More

Nothing special, especially for its price. Had a pizza and the pasta was rather dry. Small place with actually good atmosphere.

For a place that has a 4.5+ rating in an Italian Restaurant in North Beach, wow San Francisco's Italian community must be crying their eyes out... For $ 130+ for the 2 of us, you'd expect a very good to excellent meal. This was below-average...More

Baonecci is a small storefront restaurant with an old family place feel. Service is quick and responsive, and you feel the friendliness of the place and the staff. All their pasta is homemade. That said, there are some significant deficiencies. First, for a place that...More

We can for a quick dinner and got what we wanted. The pasta dishes were fine, nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home bout.

Caffe Baonecci is a family run authentic Italian restaurant in the North Beach area of San Francisco. It is VERY small, so reservations are recommended, bordering on required. The food is simply delicious and you can't really go wrong between the pizza, pasta or other...More

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.

Taste some of the most typical dishes from Lucca that you can only find in Italian houses. Our pizza has become extremely popular in the past five years for its uniqueness, with a style so diverse from other pizzas around the city that you simply must try it if you consider yourself a pizza connoisseur. If you are looking for an authentic culinary Italian experience, you found just the right place. Baonecci offers you delicious and traditional entrees from a Tuscan menu and thin-cracker, mouth-watering pizzas, each one hand rolled for you by Mamma Stefania. Baonecci offers handmade pastas made fresh everyday topped with Stefania's amazing sauces. Everything is made from scratch here. You'll be amazed by the freshness and quality of each plate and you'll be comforted by the friendly Gambaccini family who will make your experience even more "Italiana"!! We know... Our fare is not inexpensive, due to high quality ingredients used for each dish, plus for the love of an Italian woman that puts her heart in every dish that she cooks for you.. As we say in Italian " non si puo avere la botte piena e la moglie ubriaca" "you can't have both a full caraffe of wine and a drunken wife" Buon Appetito!
