Caffe Macaroni is a tremendously personal experience. The food is fantastic, of course. But what sets it apart is the intimate setting that brings patrons and owners together, as if eating at a close friend's dinner table rather than a typical restaurant.

This was our first time at his restaurant. What a gem. Very small only 4 tables downstairs and same upstairs. The kitchen is open to dining area, the owner is the one who takes your order. They have a very wide varieties of Pastas, mostly with red sauce since, since this is a Neapolitan restaurant. I had Parpadele with wild mushrooms sauce. That was incredible. My husband a Mix Pasta with peppers, sausages in a red sauce. It was outstanding also. Make sure to reserve a table and get there, and if you can get there early I recommend that too.
I can't wait to go back there.

A North Beach friend recommended Caffe Macaroni- a hidden gem we might not have otherwise enjoyed. Tiny, cozy and delicious!
