Service
 
A "wonderful transformation" of a city "landmark" , this longtime North Beach bar is now owned by Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield (NYC's Spotted Pig) who have "kept the best parts" – the red leather booths, checkered floor and vintage murals – and added a "delicious" Italian menu; "knowledgeable" servers keeps the "vibrant scene" humming till late, and even when it gets "pricey" , fans say it still "feels authentic" and are "so glad it survived."

Went here for dinner. Great ambiance. You can see into the kitchen which I always find cool. The service was pretty good. We had had a few drinks prior to dinner so we didn't have any here, but I hear they are excellent. The food was fantastic, except for the cannoli, that was very strange and I wouldn't recommend it. Portions are a little on the smaller side so I would get more than one course. I'd come back.

Great vibe, comfortable and stylish environment. Great drink selections and absolutely delicious food. I liked our wait staff as well.

This place blew me away! Warm, friendly, took real good care of us! Drinks were strong but not overpowering. Staff was outstanding! The food... out of this world! Best pork chop I've ever had, ever... and I come from a home where my grand dad grew up country and cooked a mean pork chop! Sorry Pop, but I'll be bringing him some!
