Cazone's is a North Beach
Cazone's is a North Beach iconic restaurant. The service is fast and atmosphere is fun. Our food was delivered before we could blink. Ingredients were fresh and delicious. I recommend the bruschetta, pizzas, and lasagna. If you're looking for a fun place to eat to experience a little bit of North Beach flair, Calzone's is the place.

Whenever we are in San Francisco
Whenever we are in San Francisco we stop at one of our favorite restaurants....calzones. Great for dining outside and people watch under the gas heaters. Food, service is always the best.

Excellent place for people
Excellent place for people watching while having lunch or dinner.
Some items on the menu are outstanding, however some others are meh. overall, as far as entrees are concerned, I've found all of their pizzas to be outstanding, and their Mojito's as well. The rest of the drinks were kind of so-so and I thought the pasta was average.

Food was pretty basic. Pork
Food was pretty basic. Pork chops were good although a bit too heavily seasoned with garlic. Calzone with gorgonzola artichoke and spinach was pretty flavorless. Salad with arugula was a little heavy on the arugula. Desserts were scant. Drinks were good. Tequila mojito was very good....

Went to dinner at Calzone's on a recent Saturday night. Nice crunchy/chewy bread offered right away. Scallop appitizer was great, wasabi kick was unexpected surprise! Everyone's dishes were great, procuitto / artichoke pizza--yum, sausage orzo pasta also good, but the best was the fresh fettachini alfredo with lots of crab, artichokes and spinish...it was excellent. All portions very generous. House red wine was ok, the Hess Cabernet was very good. Chocolate mousse dessert was good. Rapsberry lemonade was wonderful. Service staff were all very attentive, great service. Really great meal. No Valet parking, but we found a garage next to the police station (less than 2 blocks away) , and only spend $6 for parking for a couple hours.

Don't go into the City much
Don't go into the City much - traffic and parking are such a challenge. Had tickets to Cobbs and looking for a nearby restaurant to have dinner before the show. Selected Calzones based on vicinity and Open Table reviews. We were seated in a small oddly angled corner with a tiny table. North beach is pretty crowded and this restaurant is very much so and loud. However, service was good, food was very good and had a very enjoyable dinner. Will certainly go back again.

A Fathers Day Tradition

Pre-Beach Blanket Babylon Meal
Auctioned off dinner and BBB performance at a fundraiser. Calzones was the perfect location for walking distance to the parking garage, and Club Fugasi. Great restaurant to people watch from inside or outside seating. Outside seating is best for 1 or 2 people, larger groups should sit inside. They had a nice menu choice. We ordered 2 appetizers, 4 different entrees, and 2 bottles of wine. Wine was not overpriced and service was very good. We all enjoyed our food and even pasted around our selection to each other to sample (good friends). Would definitely eat here again.

I'm never disappointed.
I absolutely love this restaurant. I've never had a bad dish and I have been to Calzone's about 10 times. My favorite dish is the Pasta with Crab and scallop sauce. The sauce is light and tastey and they never skimp on the crab. The pasta is made fresh so it's heavenly. I have had many salads and appetizers and loved them all. We were seated upstairs on this night and even though the food and drinks come from downstairs we never waited for anything. Various employees brought us our food and drinks and helped bus our table. I was very impressed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Its a tradition
Every time we have been to San Francisco in the past three years, my family has hit Calzone's because of its fantastic food and vibrant atmosphere. The Tirimisu is superb!

Reliable Option for North Beach
Calzone's is always a good option for lunch or dinner in North Beach. The food is good, but not outstanding. The ambience is really good, the location is central to all of North Beach, and it's a big enough space you can bring 5 people and usually find a spot. It's convenient and it fits the bill. If there's just the two of you, it's great to get one of the café tables out front to people-watch while dining.

North Beach Restaurant is our favorite when we head to San Francisco. We were early for our reservation but the staff seated us right away at a table inside but next to an open window which was perfect. You had the feel of the people passing by and the people sitting outside at the sidewalk tables. Great service. Whenever we asked for something it was there within seconds. Great wine, pizza's, pasta's and salads. We'll be back next trip here.

used to frequent this place when visiting SF but hadn't been back for a few years since living here with so many other options. either way we were glad we went back and were happy to see that the food and overall experience (we sat outside which is great for people watching) were worth the trip.

north beach classic casual
Menu had been updated with so many great selections that it was difficult to choose—sharing with friends allowed us to taste more of their dishes. Wines were from reputable wineries at an affordable price point.
Busy place, but going midweek made it easy to get a reservation at the last minute.

Fun place with great food!
Fun place with great food! Colorful, themed decor, and good menu variety. Our group of 12 was seated quickly and served at a very comfortable pace for conversation but quickly enough to get us to our next event on time. Kudos to the kitchen and wait staff!!

Service was fantastic -- amazingly
Service was fantastic -- amazingly fast for how busy the restaurant was on a Saturday night. The outdoor seating was perfect for our group of 4 on a beautiful fall night in SF. While waiting for our table the bar was 100% focused on getting drinks for tables, not for those at the bar. This was a minor downside as our table was ready within 10 minutes. A reservation is highly recommended on a weekend night -- especially if you want to sit outside. Come for the fantastic food, ambience, and service (not for the bar).

Scoping out North Beach
This place has everything you want for a fun evening in North Beach. Outdoor sidewalk dining with all seats facing the Columbus Ave., great food and price variety, good service, and fun people watching can make it a romantic evening or spur of the moment event.

The food delicious!!! The
The food delicious!!! The appetizers are amazing. The margaritas are awesome. The portions are perfect. I leave Calzones craving the next visit. It is about one mile from Union Square and you can walk there- we do. I love this place, I have taken a few different friends and they have all loved their meal. If you like Italian food you will LOVE Calzones.

Calzone's was chosen on a recommendation from a local. The food, service, & atmosphere was great! The meal was unrushed, the waistaff were very knowledgeable & able to answer any questions about the food & its preparation. I would highly recommend Calzones as a place to put on their bucket list when visiting San Francisco.
