Transporting patrons "back to a San Francisco that doesn’t exist anymore" , this "authentic" trattoria (said to be the "oldest Italian restaurant" in town) relocated to North Beach’s San Remo Hotel some years back; after all these years, fans find the "well-prepared" pastas and other "classic" cucina still "impressive."

Beautiful restaurant, food tastes fresh and is delicious, and the service is attentive. The three big check boxes are solid and basically deserves 4-5 stars automatically. What puts this place solidly in the 5 stars is the way the staff is attentive. They are personable and kind. They love kids, which is a surprise if you notice the lack of a kids menu, the white tablecloths and milk in a non-covered regular glass. So they don't have the usual amenities for kids, but they don't need those gimmicks. What they have is a genuine interest in your children and an authentic warm welcome. I come here to feel like I'm home.

Absolutely a must Italian Restaurant in your list! Food is amazing and the establishment is clear and cozy. The service is good but keep in mind to order wine and be patience until your food arrives.

I had dinner there tonight and it was one of the finest experiences I've ever had dining. My girlfriend and I entered to the bombastic sounds of a band playing old swing and jazz tunes, complete with a vocalist. The waiters were very kind, ensured we had everything we needed, and were legitimately excited when we told them how great the food was. Which is true; we both had pasta dishes and they were cooked as close to perfect as one could imagine for such classic dishes. It was the perfect amount of food and it took maybe 15 or 20 minutes despite the place being moderately full. When we went to leave our waiter shook my hand and was grateful for our patronage. I've never had someone do that when I've gone to eat. It's hard to describe the feeling of that place without you experiencing it for yourself, but it felt like stepping into an Italian family's home for dinner. They treat you like family and are glad to have you there beyond just trying to make money. It's just a rare level of quality that I've not experienced very often.
