I was sceptical of this place when viewing it from the outside. However we had a delicious meal here. The kale salad was excellent, this was followed by their special filet steak dish, which was extremely delicious. Wine selection was great, service was good. It's on the pricey side but worth it for such good quality food.

Very unassuming place as it looks dark inside from the outside. But very nice bar/bistro feel inside. Great atmosphere for a drink and great service! Have not tried the food but the menu looks delish! Definitely recommended!

We went here based on a friend's recommendation. I am so glad we did. The food was off the charts! My husband had the Gnoochi, and he said if all vegetarian dishes were this- he could be a vegetarian. I had grilled porkchops. Also, fabulous. I ate every morsel on my plate. I will say for the price the portions... More

In a city the aize of San Fran there are so many choices, but sometimes a repeat performance is worthwhile. I was with business colleagues and they liked the fact that the photos make it look like the Hopper "Phillies" painting. The food is very good, it can be a bit loud during peak periods although the tables in the... More

Team dinner here. Good service (although they did forget to bring out one of the appetizers). Had the halibut, was great. Wine suggestion worked well.

Having eaten here and enjoyed it thoroughly on our last visit to San Francisco 5 years ago, we had high expectations. While the food was good, portions were a bit small. We probably should have ordered an appetizer, as there was no bread service provided. This was curious, as one would think that a place calling itself a "diner" in... More

Place is basically an over priced tourist restaurant and bar Was surprised as I had been there years earlier. Used to be reasonably priced with good service. Both are lacking now

The food is good but the service is top notch. Their drink selection is good and their bar tenders seem to be masters of their craft. The menu could use a few more items but the current items are done well.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
