Baonecci Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
A lovely dinner! My husband and I started with two yummy salads and then shared a thin crust pizza and one of their house made pastas, both of which were first rate. We also had a few glasses of red wine that complemented the meal nicely. Service was excellent and the overall atmosphere was convivial and warm.
Very pleasant dining experience at this family run cute restaurant. We figured pizza is their specialty, so we had 2. Monte Bianco-really enjoyed this one! Salamino piccante&salsiccia was a bit too salty for my taste, but same thin crust. Would love to try couple different ones next time, recommended by our waiter. Bionecci salad was very good-perfect combination of flavors and good quality ingredients. Sangiovese, house wine, was decent. We shared home made Tiramisu, since it had some great reviews. It was just OK-nothing to remember or compare to amazing desserts you'd have in Tuscany, unfortunately. Overall good experience and reasonable price for SF; will be back at some point!
We were here a week ago with a large group and my wife didn’t sample most of the delicious food (I have no problem eating & socializing!), so we had to give it another whirl. Once again, a great time- friendly, efficient staff. And the carpaccio, tagliatelle bolognese & pizza truffle salume are not to be missed! The tiramisu was a nice, light interpretation of the dish & we didn’t feel weighed down by 4 courses. The wine list is quite nice, from the by-the-glass (but DOCG) Chianti to the sublime Sassicaia. I enjoyed the Super Tuscan by the glass.
We live in SF, but don’t get to North Beach as often as we should- thanks to Baonecci, this won’t be a problem any longer!
First time at the restaurant and was looking for a casual business meal ambiance. Well I found it here as the service was friendly and attentive. The food was prepared with the care of being fresh and delicious.
I highly recommend this experience and will return again.
The staff at Baonecci is very welcoming and accommodating. The ingredients they use are fresh and the combinations well thought out. Our salad was crisp, the dressing was subtly flavored and the thin apple slices brought a nice, unexpected element to the dish.
The wine list is also well considered. I've had a few different bottles at Baonecci and each was distinctive and flavorful. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was very good, but quite costly for the portion size. The waiter said he would bring bread, but never did. All the tables around us received it. When we asked for some at the end of our meal, it was as though we had asked for free dessert or something. We dropped the issue. It was a busy night for the restaurant, but it's hard not to feel that we were rushed in and out. We had also requested a window table when making the reservation, but did not get one, despite a table remaining open at the window for the duration of our stay.
Unfortunately this review is a little tainted since we went on the same day as the Santa Bar Crawl in SF. But needless to say you better be very patient when you go here. It took an hour and a half to get one order of carpaccio and a small pasta plate. Both were great, but I was hungry and I just don't like waiting that long in a restaurant. Also, the sign on the door said reservations only, but slowly as more and more people just opened the door they were allowed to get tables. It became noisy and just annoying, especially since we were waiting an hour for one plate of pasta, which ended up being pretty small. Bottom Line: Great Italian food, but its slow and might be a loud place to sit to sit and wait for it.
Came here after reading Yelp reviews, it doesn't look so inviting from the outside, but glad we gave it a try. We found the best thin crust pizza in SF. I part of me doesn't want to say that because I want to be able to get a table whenever I want. But if your looking for Neapolitan thin crust pizza this is the place to go. The owner is always there, him or his son, and my only feedback for them is your one and only waiter, teach him how to smile and be more friendly. The owners always take the order as far as we've been there, but the server serves the food and he looks so unhappy and never smiling. But honestly we just zone him out cause we have the best pizza in front of us. But that would make the experience even so much better. I also think they should have a little bit more affordable wines, the pour isn't so great either, we might stay longer and order more if there were. But we will definitely come back to this great Italian place!
The very best and most authentic pizza you will find in the US, and I have spent much time all over Italy. The family is from Lucca, which is not known for pizza, but somehow they are comparable to the best of Napoli and Roma for thin, vibrant, delicious pizza. And the pastas are home-made and equally delicious. Recently they have expanded the menu to offer a wonderful filet and some other entrees. Grazie mille Stefania and Walter!
Oddly, though I couldn't get a reservation for 4 or more, I found a table for 3 and then found there were several open tables. So if you can't get a reservation, you might try to drop in. I had VERY high expectations based on my prior visits. I thought this place had THE BEST pizza. Didn't seem quite as good this time, but maybe it was my order or something. Still a very good restaurant with real Italian pizza and real Italian flavors and real Italian staff. If you want a simple but authentic Italian meal in North Beach, go here!
Baonecci was awesome! We were looking for classic Italian pastas and Baonecci's menu has so many different ones to choose from, and they even make their own homemade pasta! We had the pomodoro, the Bolognese, with bruschetta and a salad to start and everything was fantastic! We also enjoyed their beer and wine selection and finished dinner with sambuca. The service was great, in this family run restaurant, and it was nice to hear stories about the family and the area in general. When we return to the San Francisco area we will most definitely be back to Baonecci!
