  • Minestrone soup -skip it!
    by  on 10/03/2010

    I liked the decor and Italian speaking waiters. Good coffee too. Waiters very nice also. BUT.... I decided on the minestrone soup as I was not that hungry. While it was tasty , I have to say I have had better soup from a can ( Progresso- Puck) Theirs was full of too many carrots and potatoes and very skimpy on the other veggies such as zucchini and peas. I think I found one or two beans and zero pasta. So basically it was bowl of potato and carrot in broth. Unimpressive! My daughter had a calzone, which she enjoyed and was very tasty, but at $15 for more or less an inside out piece of pizza, it's too high in price. I would not go here again, as I have found other Italian restaurants on or near Columbus Ave I liked better.

  • Fabulous Italian Food, and Fabulous Italian Hospitality
    by  on 05/19/2010

    Excellent food, excellent wine list - this is coming from someone who IS Italian. Great Trattoria pricing (ie, this is not a cafeteria, nor is it a fine dining establishment, but it is well priced for what it is - a standout in a neighbourhood of great Italian food). Also - the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet - a member of our party left her handbag in a taxi and there was nothing they could not do to help - phoning taxi companies, offering free drinks, etc. This is genuine Italian hospitality, and delicious food - everything was excellent, but the pastas really stand out!

    Excellent food and attentive service; this family owned and operated Italien restaurant is a real find, with heated outside tables for watching the passing crowds; all dishes are made to order; mid-day specials and a very broad menu makes this one of our favorite stops in North Beach.

    Nasty owners/managers.\r Giovanni, who i was told is the owner, completely bad mouthed us in Italian thinking we didn't understand what he was saying.\r I also heard him call one of the hostesses a Bi### and misstreating another employee. \r I think miserable people who treat others like this don't deserve my business or yours no matter how good the food might be. \r what an a##!

  • Here' top pasta restaurant in SF? yes if you're NOT Gourmet ! and you need to order 1 food per per
    by  on 11/03/2008

    my first SF, we found this restaurant as SF top pasta restaurant voted on San Francisco Chronicle in a guide book at Hilton Hotel room. trip=eat yammy food !!! we were really looking forward to eat super tasty pasta. I'm really picky for food, first bite is everything to me. we sit down and order drink... ask recommended pasta to waiter, as his recommend I ordered ""Tortellini Boscaiola"", and tried to share with my husband because I'm very small apatite, BUT he requested to order 1 entree per person !!! YES each person have to order food in this restaurant. there's no sign to notice about it in front of door and write about it small in menu. we didn't mind to order 2 plates, but this restaurant policy made us really feel bad. \r this restaurant is not supre high class.\r how about top pasta in SF ? ""Tortellini Boscaiola"" clearly too much light taste cream sauce and lasagna sauce was too sour because too little cheese. who voted this pasta is top in SF ?\r I never believe guide book again.
