We had great drinks and a couple small plates at the bar. The food was interesting, innovative and delicious. Highly recommended the Meatballs with Focaccia Bread, the Crispy Pig Tails and Tiramisu.
Order off the cocktail menu for an unexpectedly unforgettable experience. Or ask the bartender to craft something just for you. The house cappuccino makes for a perfect nighttime toddy.
Sip a Cappuccino or a Nunn instead of dessert. And a nip of an Amari before bed.
Crispy pig tail and any pasta dish. Be prepared for some pain to the wallet.
THAT CHICKEN THO
They have a black pepper and cheese pasta that is phenomenal.
Well-made cocktails, atmosphere, delicious pastas - I don't know why so many SF people whinge and moan about the overhaul. Would you really rather it had been turned into another strip club?
Nice retro atmosphere. Too few places to have a drink.
James Beard Foundation Best New Restaurant 2014 nominee.
Very fancy cocktails. Only problem is they take, like, 15 minutes to make.
Roasted treviso; linguine with Manila clams; hanger steak with sunchoke purée
Roasted veggies, specials
I was so excited to try this spot after the remodel. I've been twice and both visits the service was disorganized and the food was over-salted. The cocktails and atmosphere are good for drinking only.
The bucatini all'amatriciana here are best in class. Piping hot, perfectly meaty and spicy.
Don't downplay the food, but the cocktails just blew us away. And the bar is so cool that we wanted to make sure you stopped in for a drink if your meal dance card was already full.
You have to order the roast chicken an hour in advance but it is WORTH it! Marsala cream gravy with bread soaked under the chicken and roasted garlic potatoes.
Get the house "cappuccino" 1919 You won't be sorry. Buffalo trace Bourbon and Dandelion chocolate.
May we recommend house cappuccino with Buffalo Trace bourbon, armagac, and dandelion chocolate ganache?
Manhattan was great
The. Best. Food. Ever. Worth the wait. Order the ribs with asparagus. You win't be disappointment.
Get there early.
Wait persons are awesome tip at least 20 percent
Do the cappuccino. The bucatini is also excellent.
Pro tip. Eat here often!
House cappuccino. Duh.
Pressed Pig's Ear is my new favorite thing. It will be yours too.
Don't skip the veggies (salad and sides) - all very well done. They also have a fantastic cheese selection for either a first course or dessert.
Experience hits on all levels, from the satisfying Italian food to the fun bar bites and cocktails to the deep Italian wine program. The only problem is getting in: Tosca doesn't take reservations.
1.5 hour wait at 7 on a Saturday
unique drinks; all the spirit of the original Take an Uber in North Beach for FREE (up to $20) anytime between now until Friday 12/20/13 using the promo code NorthBeachSF. (Excludes TAXI). #NBSF.
Everything was really good. Great cocktails. But leave the gun and leave the cannoli.
One of my favorite bars on Earth. No joke.
Great ambiance for a date. (Try to get a cozy booth to snuggle up in.)
April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman of The Spotted Pig in NYC revamped this classic North Beach bar and added a full restaurant menu.
We had a two top next to the semi open kitchen and had an excellent view of April Bloomfield working her magic. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the octopus and the pig tails in appetizers.
Trouble in paradise or polo club drink off their new menu
Full food service at the bar if there's a long wait. Late night food until 1am!
This Art Deco bar is a cozy solution for the nightcap. A favorite to local celebs like Sean Penn, the drink specialty here is called the House Cappucino: Ghiradelli Chocolate, Steamed Milk, & Brandy.
Opera on the juke.
It's hot chocolate-tastic.
Try the house cappuccino, the lumaconi, and the chicken marsala.
Stepped in, took a breath, stepped out. Smelled strange. Maybe they just had a bad day? Was quite empty.
Surprisingly busy on a pre-Christmas Friday night, but there is a live band and cheery faces. Definitely not a bar where you'll find Grumps.
