I had Ravioli Pomodoro, excellent sauce, lovely ricotta and spinach stuffed house-made raviolis. I would have licked the plate if I had not been sitting near the windows. My dining partner had Spaghetti Bolognese, excellent veal sauce, just how you think it should taste, obviously...More

North Beach is known for its great Italian cuisine, and this restaurant is one of the best and most authentic in the hood. The salads are fresh and tasty, but it is the pasta you will go back for. Many claim that the Spaghetti Bolognese...More

Went there for dinner with family and we all had pasta. Quality and taste was good, no more no less. But better places around in this neighborhood.

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.
