    The spicy octopus stew is as awesome as everyone says. Use the bread to sop up the extra sauce.

    Fancy some Italian this evening? This family-run sparkler is free of pretension and full of love. Don’t miss the spicy octopus stew, the sea urchin pasta, and the unusual wine selection. Read more

    Cannonau wine. Rank order:spaghetti perf al dente, chewy & garlicky. Squid ink linguine=lemony & crisp. Sea urchin pasta=heaviest of 3 & like a salty sea urchin flavor pearl couscous. Terrific EVOO.

    Featured and reviewed restaurant on KQED Check, Please Bay Area Season 5, Episode 7. I'll have to make a stop here one day for a taste of Sardinian cuisine.

    Make a reservation in advance. If you order 1 appetizer, 2 first, and 2 main = perfect portion size for 3 people. Don't forget a bottle of wine because they have an amazing list.

    the spaghetti with bottarga is the best pasta dish I've ever had!

    Jeffrey Johnson · September 7, 2013
  • Meg M.

    one of the only places in the city you can get Argiolas wine. Burrata is perfect. Get the seafood or fish - meat is done better elsewhere.

    Meg Minuskin · August 21, 2013
  • Brian T.

    Great place to try unique seafood dishes. Get a smorgasbord and share.

    Brian T · May 9, 2013
  • Tom M.

    Check in BEFORE you get seated; they ask no electronics be used at the table. After that, order the squid, then the perfectly cooked & seasoned Spaghittusu Bottariga. It lives up to the hype.

    Tom McGhan · April 8, 2013
  • Gianpaolo S.

    Octopus + black ink pasta + tartufo all'amaretto = top notch!

    Best Italian I've had in a long time, east or west coast! Get the spicy baby octopus stew & squid ink linguine. Foodie. Heaven.

    The real Italian pasta and pizza.

  • Dab P.

    The Salami pizza, not the usual crap you get from other places. Doesn't even have tomato sauce. It's delicious.

    Dab Padilla · January 6, 2013
  • cyn k.

    Imagine the most tender octopus in an italian mole-like stew. Combine that with delish pasta, meat plates, and incredibly kind service- win win win.

    Not so much San Francisco Italian, as pure unadulterated regional Italian, this family-run sparkler is free of pretension and full of love. Don’t miss the sea urchin pasta. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Try a rare & different wine tonight: Campagnano's Pallagrello Bianco. This white grape delivers full-bodied, low acidity wines, w/ apricot & peach flavors (similar in ways to big whites of N Rhone).

    Avoid this place. Extremely rude. We were asked to wait while regulars who didn't make reservations walked in off the street and got seated. They proceeded to tell me I'll be seated soon for 30 mins.

    don't decide on your order until you hear about the specials.

    Stephen Fox · November 8, 2009

    Try the pizza Sarda and the seafood salad - both excellent

    Stu Fisher · November 7, 2009

    ask for the tuna heart pasta, very strong but amazing
