Great sandwiches. The gelato looks amazing but haven't tried it yet.

Sometimes you just know when the place you walk in is not the usual standard cafe scene. Norcina is all about Italian. From the food and drinks to equipment/supplies used, it's not your typical cafe deli. Counter exterior matches back walls that of white brick design patterns with intricate gold accent. A few wall-mounted aerial table and high chairs make this a cozy place. Got me a muffuletta with prosciutto and creamy cheese. The bread has imprint that matches butter wafer use on gelato. Aged prosciutto are thinly hand slice with cheese oozing from the side. Pistachio gelato doesn't show that deep green color and embedded with pieces of pistachio, but what you get here is the extract of real pistachio mixed in gelato. I may come back and watch the eclipse since this place is hidden off the embarcadero waterfront.
