This review is somewhat colored by the fact that the electricity in Hayes Valley went down before we could get past the cocktail and a plate of Serrano ham. But I was with an old friend, the wine was pouring and we had a good evening. The staff was very warm, and they let us hang out even though...

This is one of the best, truly traditional Italian restaurants in the City. Located in the amazing Fell St area, it’s a small gem in a big city. The owners are from old Italy and great everyone like their premiere guests. The food quality and portion is hard to beat!
