A real pleasure to find a great Italian restaurant which maintains the "old" standards!! The waiters all wear bow ties and tux with serviettes correctly draped over the left forearm. They also know how to be polite and give great service. The food was good...More

Perfunctory bonhomie (not Italian, I know), middling food. Good wine list, but expensive. Can think of other places I'd rather be on a Saturday night.

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.
