    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:

    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.

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

    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.

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

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