Very friendly staff and attentive to customers. Offered recommendations and adapted orders as requested. Food was exceptional. Appropriate serving sizes. Environment clean, comfortable and busy. Loved the stained glass lamps on the ceiling which look like Tiffany glass. No reservation needed.

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.
