    HOLY CRAP! Never eaten a better sandwich in my life! Got tuna w/avacado + mozarella (no capers/onion) Everything is fresh and delicious! Worth the hr flight just to get their sandwich and canoli!

    Best Dishes Under $10: Tiramisu. Arguably the best in San Francisco, is light as air and the perfect balance of sweetness and espresso. More: http://bit.ly/TbwLaH

    Try panna cotta and cannoli. It seems to be back on Italy. Nice spot and gourmand choice in SF

    Best cannoli in North Beach. Made fresh and served with chocolate chips and a little bit of candied orange peel.

    Check out the macchiatone, their version of the gibraltar/cortado, and their house-made Sicilian cannoli.

    Any breakfast dish with the eggs is great. And try the eggs with marinara. Santo, the owner, is friendly and hospitable and the wi-fi is free and fast.

    Looking for an intimate cafe in the crossroads of North Beach & Chinatown with WIFI, Italian books, & great food? Find Santo & tell him that Jacquie Ricci's friend from Chicagoland sent you his way. Read more

    Get the Caffè Freddo on a hot day. It's cold espresso with a layer of cream. Don't stir it!

    The coffee here is perfect, don't put sugar on it and take a sip before you will love it.

    Their tiramisu is better than the ones you get in the restaurants.

    Spacious artful modern spartan cafe. The workers are one young itlaian immigrant male and a middle aged filipino lady. Tiramisu is not too sweet, nothing wrong with it, very basic and standard.

    Serviceable cannoli but everything about this place is too much. Too bright too loud too many TVs.
