Service
 
"Superb" Roman cooking, from "excellent" antipasti to standout risotto and homemade pasta, is "as authentic as it gets" at this "unpretentious" North Beach Italian also offering an "extensive" wine list; the the "homey" setting is another reason fans feel "transported" to a "little trattoria in Italy" , and the "welcoming" staff is another plus.

Came in after hours after a class tour of the Barbary Coast. The restaurant is very calm, quiet. Service was quick between meals, I would recommend the pasta amatriciana; mouthwatering! Only thing: dish was slightly under cooked but the flavor made up for it. The place is very cozy (small) and intimate with warm lighting. Highly recommend. Thank you Maurizio!

Recently spent a month in Italy. Rome, Tuscany, Milan and environs. This place is at least equal, if not better than any of the places we tried there. Great services and ambiance as well. Please don't pass it by!

Dined here with my mom, sister, and daughter. The service was great and the food delicious and authentic. The waiter suggested a pasta dish for my young daughter that was not on the menu. The most amazing limoncello dessert. Still thinking about it and looking forward to returning to Ideale for another taste!
