    This is a gem. Wines served by the glass without uncorking? Great appetizers And perfect pasta that even comes in half portions. Scallops and Black Sea bass; great chef in a seaport.

    Literally the best meal I've ever had. Went here for an anniversary dinner and it was perfect. Service was impeccable. Food was amazing and the rolls they give you, I crave them all the time.

    If you aren't sure what to get, go for the Fritto Misto (Crispy Fried Shrimp) for starters and any of the pastas for dinner. Personally I recommend the Pappardelle, or Tajarin.

    I live in North Beach (Little Italy) and this is the best Italian I've had in San Francisco. It is the perfect mixture of old school Italian flavored and new school chef technique.

    The burrata is just about the only thing that isn't house made, but don't let that stop you; it's divine. Follow it up with an appetizer portion of pasta so you'll have room for dessert.

    I recommend the salumi misti plate (share as an appy), ginger cocktail, tagliatelle and brown sugar gelato for dessert (comes w/ some excellent brown sugar cookies)

    Everything is of top quality. Among the mains (“secondi”), the beef cheek is amazing.

    This is Northern Italian food inspired by the Piedmont region, known for progressive ways and rich dishes (i.e. cream and fresh truffles). Don't miss the Chef's Table and see the magic firsthand.

    Sea salted caramel gelato, ridiculous. Also, the dessert with pears. Short rib or sea bass for an entree. Trust me, There were 10 of us, I tried everything.

    La prima: smoked Liberty Farms goose with dried fruits. Il secondo: two pasta tastings - rabbit agnolotti & duck ragu gnocchi. La terza: scallops with baby fennel & blood orange. Qui ho mangiato bene!

    Menu changes daily. Great food, great value, and great service. Wines are better than specialty cocktails.

    Upstairs mezzanine seating is a bit more peaceful than the bustling ground floor, that is, until your taste buds start singing from the likes of house-made salumi and fresh pastas. - Inspector

    I had the Roasted Octopus and Wagyu beef lengua to start with, we split a plate of Tajarin and opted for the Roasted Duck, Halibut and the seared Scallops.Who skips dessert? We had the caramel gelato

    Our hotels concierge recommend us this place but It is not so good place to regular italian pasta... If you like different kind pasta then you can try. I think it is over priced for what you get it!

    The salumi misti plate of house cured meats was fantastic and great as a starter to share. Raviolo with ricotta, spinach and truffles was excellent.

    If they have the "Raviolo filled with ricotta,spinach and farm egg; with grated summer truffles and melted butted" order it, in fact, order two! Awesome dish.

    Eat at the bar. It's one of the nicest in town. Simply one of the best salumi plates and beretta cheese around as well.
