Very nice authentic Greek food, dolmades were very nice. Had Youvetsi as a main and was very tasty. The glass of red wine tasted as though the bottle had been left open over night? The waitress was extremely good and friendly.

Went to this restaurant and was a little worried because there was only one other family dining. However, I'm very glad that I stayed. The lamb shank and spanakopita were excellent. The lamb shank was "fall off the bone" tender and well spiced (not so...More

Columbus Avenue and the blocks surrounding it are known more for Italian than any other food. However, right next to Caffe Viva (Italian) is Estia, one of the few high-quality non-Italian restaurants in the neighborhood. The white walls, pictures and music give it a Greek...More

I had a beautiful spanakoritzo for $12.95 US - how freaking good is that?! It was amazing. My friend had the gyros platter and that was equally divine! Ambience, service, wine - fantastic. I was so sad to leave SF. Why can't all restaurants be...More

Pretty basic and humble Mediterranean offerings on the menu like Pastitsio and Gyros. Very cozy!

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.
