Italian
If you are looking for an authentic culinary Italian experience, you found just the right place. Baonecci offers you delicious and traditional entrees from a Tuscan menu and thin-cracker, mouth-watering pizzas, each one hand rolled for you by Mamma Stefania. Baonecci offers handmade pastas made fresh everyday topped with Stefania’s amazing sauces. Everything is made from scratch here. You'll be amazed by the freshness and quality of each plate and you'll be comforted by the friendly Gambaccini family who will make your experience even more "Italiana”!!

We know… our fare is not inexpensive, due to high quality ingredients used for each dish, plus for the love of an Italian woman that puts her heart in every dish that she cooks for you.. As we say in Italian “ non si può avere la botte piena e la moglie ubriaca” “you can’t have both a full caraffe of wine and a drunken wife” 
Buon Appetito! "

The real deal - family-run Italian restaurant in North Beach. Porchetta as a starter. Homemade pasta, great Bolognese, incredible seafood, great Nebbiolo. Gelato with cherries and Vin Santo for dessert. Felt like I was back in Florence.

This is a very authentic Italian restaurant. Having been to Italy several times and in particular in Lucca, I can attest to what Italian food is like in Italy. Baonecci is the closest thing to eating in Italy as there is in San Francisco. Home-made pasta with terrific sauces, this is the place in North Beach, or anywhere in SF to find great, simple Italian food. We highly recommend this spot on Green Street.

Really disappointed by this place. The pasta was mediocre and very expensive. The mushroom tortellini dish was $31 and was simply not very good. Flavors were just ok. Would not recommend highly. Maybe it was a bad day.

Food was excellent-authentic Italian, not Americanized at all! Risotto, arrabbiata pasta with Calabrian chilies, and cantaloupe draped with prosciutto! Delicious- and the service was appropriately attentive. Can’t wait to go back!!

This is our favorite pizza restaurant in SF! We had a group of five for a going away dinner and everything was awesome! Two salads, one order of bruschetta and four pizzas was the perfect amount of food for everyone to share and enjoy. The thin crust pizzas here are AMAZING and you really can’t go wrong with any of the topping options. Service was good and the food came out in a very timely manner. I always recommend Baonecci to my friends and can’t wait to come back!

Baonecci is a warm, comfortable, family run restaurant. Our second visit and it was equally as wonderful as the first. Entrees were outstanding. Would definitely recommend this hidden gem in North Beach.

The food was dull and mediocre. Tomatoes in the burrata salad were poor quality, which kills the dish. The lasagna was ok, pesto was not very tasty and the Bolognese was dull. The melon and prosciutto appetizer was not well prepared- the meat was draped across long slices of melon rather than cut to fit bite-sized pieces.

Very delicious, rich food in a lovely if small space. The pizzas have a heavenly, thin, crispy crust and the toppings taste like they are straight out of Italy. Pastas have a great texture and are well sauced. My boyfriend and I love sitting at the bar counter instead of the tables. The food is super delicious and is what made me realize that North Beach isn't just a gross tourist trap. The staff is always fun as well.

Combo of community seating and tables for 2-4.
Even on a weeknight at 8:45, I’m glad I had a reservation. There were 2 tables when we arrived and a family of six had to be turned away.
Shared one appetizer, one salad and one entree. Tried 3 wines and everything was wonderful.
Carpaccio Di Bresaola    , burrata, Bolognese.
Barbera, sparkling rosé, Chianti.

Leftovers, too. Which were great the next day.

There's been a proliferation of places in SF in recent years that serve a REALLY good plate of pasta, and after recently discovering Baonecci I add it to the top of the list. The standout is the arrabiata. They go there with this dish. So spicy it will make sweat pop on your forehead, and absolutely delicious. I recommend that if you're having dinner with another person you don't both get it at the same time, because you'll need to switch plates from time to time for heat relief. Last time my partner had the arrabiata and I had a wonderful penne pomodoro, simple and fresh and delicious, and we traded plates halfway through to cut the heat. They also serve a basket of unusual, almost flatbread-like bread, that helps to soak up the heat. Good stuff. The only reason I don't rate higher is that it's a tiny room and painfully, aggressively loud. You have to scream across the table to make yourself heard. Aside from that, just have a glass of nebbiolo and eat some great pasta.
