The Sodini's clan have done quite well. Not only starting Golden Boy pizza nearby, they purchased the Green Valley Restaurant that I knew from my youth. It is the way I remember. Sinatra and rat pack music in the air. Quaint candlelit tables lined with paper so little kids can doodle drawings with crayon before a meal is served. Stick... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much the first time we came back. The atmosphere is great, service is very friendly and the food is wonderful. The portions are huge, enough for lunch the next day. Pastas are fresh, the sauces are rich and flavorful. Great Italian wines by bottle and glass. Lot of dinner choices, try two different ones and share.

Walking back from Telegraph Hill we were asking someone walking his dog for advice regarding a restaurant close by that can be recommended. He suggested Idealo (been there, did not rate it family friendly). Second suggestion was Sodini's. Nothing special about the place except for Erin making you feel welcome whoever you are. Creola on every second table, paper to... More

Went with 2 friends after walking the city all day. The food was good and waitresses very busy so not too attentive to every table.

We went here looking for a place to eat after walking up and down Columbus Avenue IN SF doing some shopping. This place hit the spot. We got there between lunch and dinner so it wasn't terribly busy yet. We ordered and had great mussels as an appetizer and then excellent pastas. By the time we left the place was... More

This is an excellent family owned traditional Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is very casual. The steamed mussels and clams were very good, and the veal scallopini was excellent. They do not accept reservations but we arrived before the rush on a Tuesday evening and were seated quickly.

Very attentive service once you get seated. This place is right out of the Sopranos.....see the host taking names.love it!!! Key point for those new, it doesn't take reservations. Once you get your name on list, stay right there or at the bar. Do not leave even if the host takes a cell phone # Food and wine very good

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.
