Service
 
"Out of the way" from "tourist-heavy Columbus" Avenue, this "cheerful" North Beach "classic" "is where the locals go" to enjoy "unpretentious" , "old-school" Italian standards (including "housemade gnocchi" and "delicious pasta sauces" ) for "little money" ; staffers provide "pleasant service" , but since the "cozy" quarters can get "crowded" , regulars say make a "reservation" or "eat at the bar to skip the wait."

What an amazing place to get some good Italian food! Hands down the best Italian food I’ve ever had and such a cute little venue! The type of place where once you’ve discovered it, you will consider it your special little spot and go-to place to take your sweetheart. It’s our first time visiting San Francisco and we wanted to find a nice local spot with some good food and we really hit the jackpot! The service was fantastic and the food is to die for! The sauce was so creamy and addictive, the chicken seasoned and cooked to perfection, and the vegetables were steamed to a perfect balance of soft and crunchy. It was delicious! Everything from the the food, location, the wait staff, and fun decor made for the perfect dining experience! You have to check this place out!

Wow! Just wow. To the chefs 10/10. Their food was out standing Unfortunately that’s where it ended. What was meant to be a special evening was ruined by the front of house staff. Constantly having to flag the waiter to take our order, to Clear our plates, to deliver a dessert menu. They cannot even hide behind ‘it was busy’. It was a 2100 (9pm) sitting and half the restaurant was empty. So disappointed
