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! "
From out of town and saw this listed as one of the top Italian restaurants. We had the lasagne and mushroom ravioli and loved it! Reasonably priced, cool little place. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
In a world filled with too many copy-cat pseudo Italian restaurants, Baonecci sands apart as a true, family run Italian/ Tuscan trattoria. The family hails from Lucca and have brought generations of culinary prowess to this lovely, intimate restaurant. The food is great as is the service friendly and authentic.
If you can't make it to Italy this weekend - this is the next best thing.
Charming, Delightful and Delicious! Service with a smile.
Such amazing food and a lovely casual restaurant with very friendly and family style service. We loved it and will be back!
We love the food and their service. Great place for fresh pasta.
Delicious food, prepared with lovely attention to detail. Attentive, warm service. We will be back!
Excellent place for a good Italian food served by great people in a family restsurant
I had the Zuppa Garfagnina, that is, the cannellini bean and farro soup as it is made in the Garfagnana Valley, just north of Lucca. I asked for olive oil and fresh cracked pepper on top as I have had it before in Lucca. They were provided very promptly and the zuppa was authentic and excellent. I followed this with the Eggplant Parmigiana because all of the students at a Civic Kitchen vegetarian cooking class I recently took said it was the best in S.F. It was, and the serving on the antipasti menu was large enough to be a main course. My partner had the Pizza Baonecci which is conceptually interesting, a very thin "00" crust with fresh mozzarella baked in and then topped with the finest quality Prosciutto crudo, arugula, and shaved Parmigiano ( which goes up in price 25% thanks to you know who in the White House). The service was attentive (we had a 6:00 p.m. reservation) and they were turning customers away at 7:30 p.m.
Great AUTHENTIC Italian restaurant. The family-run (from Lucca) is the closest thing to sitting in Lucca and enjoying the great food of Italy. A full range of antipasti, insalata and many choices of homemade pasta. The pizzas are excellent, and again authentic. Enjoy!
I love this restaurant. It is the only Italian restaurant I will go to. The sauces are so fresh and I feel like family. Love this place!
Excellent service, exquisite food and lovely ambiance. They treat you like family!
Very friendly and engaging servers/owners. Outstanding food. Quaint restaurants.
Amazing, mild pesto. Perfectly cooked pasta. Unique and very memorable pizza with mozzarella, garganzola and crisp, thinly sliced pear. A meal to remember!
Always a pleasure to be with the Gambaccini family and the wonderful food Stefania cooks. We had a house ravioli, a pizza, a lasagna and a faglioli (a beans and sausage appetizer I am probably misspelling), and a bottle of chianti from their relatives. A great evening.
Delicious food! Great service!!
Great food. You can tell the family who runs this place loves what they do. It was busy with people who seemed to be from the neighbourhood, which is always a great sign.
The real deal!
We tried this place last year and have since decided to make it a yearly tradition. Today we came for the second time and we we moved it even more than the first. Exceptional service and the food is just amazing. At the end of the mean it looked like All of our plates were completely clean. OUTSTANDING!
Great food, great service. Definitely recommend
Visiting my daughter in college
Best pizza in SF! Thin crispy crust. Yum!
Great meal! The eggplant parmigiana and lasagna are a must!,
As always, Baonecci was wonderful. We have never been disappointed. The food is excellent from an authentic Italian chef! This family run gem is best in the area.
One of the best Italian restaurants in SF! Outstanding lasagna and pizza.
Awesome night! Very friendly service, amazing meal. Quality of a very exclusive restaurant with a great home feel.
Incredible! The pizza is so thin you can’t believe it. Great ambience. Wonderful, attentive service. The San Marzano sauce is delicious!
Excellent staff that made us feel like family
Great ambiance and service. Authentic atmosphere in the heart of North Beach. I would highly recommend
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.
Nice little place. Friendly service and good food.
Lovely relaxing local spot in North Beach. Food was superb and the wait staff couldn’t have been more friendly and efficient
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!!
The cracker thin pizza crust was out of this world! Would go back just for the pizza!
Some of the best Italian food I’ve had outside if Italy.
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.
Quaint restaurant with delicious food! We started with the carpaccio; and we shared both the pesto and bolognese pastas —all three were delicious!
