Food quality and service was over the top. Best Italian in the city. Give it a try, you just can’t go wrong!!
Best dining experience in a long time. Very attentive, knowledgeable and fun. Amazing food, wine and the canoli was to die for.
The food and service were excellent with a fine-dining atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Entrees were good and a good value. The house special appetizer was okay and extremely overpriced.
As is almost always the case ... Our North Beach dining experience was exceptionally good. The service, food, ambience and the wine list are all totally Top Shelf! This is a favorite venue for our special occasion dining when we are visiting The City. The Prosciutto Room and the Wine Cellar Room are MUST Experiences!! Of they’re not available for your dining, request a “peek” ... you’ll be WOWED!!
Wonderful, attentive service. Excellent food.
Always excellent food and service. Been going for 30 years. Marco is the ultimate Italian waiter.
From start to finish the experience was top notch! Outstanding meal and service!! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for great family Italian in San Francisco!!
We celebrated a 65 th Birthday and it was perfect!
I continue to enjoy the amazing food and atmosphere at NBR. I love Marco and the staff! Keep up the amazing work! We love you!
Great location. Staff very hospitable
have been going here forover 40 years , but recently the las t 3 meals have been sub par. Not going back
Really nice neighborhood gem. Staff were pleasant and made my experience stress free. I have a foot injury and get around on a knee scooter. The staff accommodated my needs and were very attentive. I ordered the Caesar salad (half portion) and it was delicious. I ordered the pasta with the pesto for my main which also was delicious, and the lemon sorbet for dessert. I was stuffed! Very classy atmosphere, easy to get to, great staff. Really great experience. I’d come back again!
Old school Italian with traditional choices. Great location!!
One of our favorites - when we lived in SF in the past, and now whenever we come back to visit! One of the gems of North Beach - classic italian food with the best service you will find. Food is absolutely delicious with obvious prep, thought, and care. The staff are wonderful with children. You cannot go wrong here. We have never been dissapointed!
Our first visit to North Beach Restaurant did not disappoint! Our server was outstanding and everything we ordered was excellent! We will definitely be back on our next trip to San Francisco!
Best Italian food in SF with the best service. Truly old school. The spinach salad is bomb asf. We love the pollo al mattone - chicken under a brick - so crispy! And the gnocchi are pillows. This place is the best. Art by Miro etc on the walls too.
Traditional American Italian. Suited Italian Waiters suited in Black Bow Ties, white tablecloths, relaxing decor. We started with cocktails that were well made. Marco our waiter was excellent, explained the extensive specials list, much to choose from. We finally chose starters and our main course, both were freshly made & delicious. We also had Italian wine, helped to choose by Marco. Finally, we finished with white chocolate cannoli. OMG, they were so so delicious! Would recommend North Beach.
Very good all the way around! Waiter was very effective. Great spot.
Most delicious meal so far in San. Francisco!
The swordfish was delicious. Gnocchi was outstanding. Veal Marsala was best I've ever had. Outstanding service! We will return!
A fantastic experience, the food was superb! The house specialty spaghetti carbonara was the best I’ve ever eaten. Loved it!
The service here is impeccable and really makes for an exceptional dining experience.
Server Daniel was wonderful! Very expensive! Very small portions
Loved everything about this place!
Extremely disappointing. I can’t believe I got dupped into going to this place.
I was introduced this restaurant and this was very good!
We’ve been dining at The North Beach Restaurant for 25 years. The food is always delicious. The waiters are professionals. We highly recommend it for any occasion.
Our waiter Mateo alone was worth the trip. Ultimately the bill was not worth the experience though.
Went for my mom's birthday and it was better than we anticipated. The staff was well dressed and very friendly, from the greeter to the wait staff they all made us feel at home and that they wanted to ensure a good time. The food was great, we all loved it and the portions were large. A moderately priced wine was recommended and it was delicious. The restaurant is not too large so it's fairly quiet except for the locals who have fun at the bar or at one of the tables, so it's not stuffy. Prices are a bit high but we were not disappointed at all. I would recommend North Beach restaurant to anyone
It was a really nice dinner. The Service was Perfect! Special birthday with Friends
An amazing meal! Their prosciutto and mozzarella are made in house and the calamari is fantastic! Our waiter was incredibly attentive and his recommendations made our meal superb. Very nice wine list too. We dined here before seeing Beach Blanket which turned out beautifully as it was just across the street. Highly highly recommended!
NBR never disappoints. They do what they do very well. The seafood is also very good.
Incredible food. Must visit if you're in the North Beach area. Warm lighting, very cozy
Great service and food
What an excellent. I have been to North Beach Restaurant before and wanted to share the wonderful food and service with a very good friend, and the experience did not disappoint. It was wonderful as usual.
Do not bring a baby here. They will treat you badly. Food was too salty. Our waiter was nice and tried his best. But the bussers and the host were extremely rude. They wouldn’t let us pick a better table, wouldn’t walk us to our table, yelled at us about our stroller. Treated us like crap when our kid cried. Wait staff were rushing around us to serve other tables...took two and a half hours to order two pastas and a salad and some appetizers. Our guest that we brought had an anxiety attack and they tried to call the ambulance when he went outside for fresh air then cleared our table before we were done as if to get rid of us. Overcharged us for mediocre calamari. Sat people two inches a way from us on all sides so busses and wait staff had to run behind us every five minutes and it was so damn loud. We had to scream to hear each other. Food was gross (over-salted..skimpy ingredients...pasta tasted like a supermarket brand that was not homemade...and it was overpriced. North Beach Restaurant has become a tourist trap. Nightmare experience!!! I’m a 3rd gen San Franciscan and I was scandalized. Oh. And I had feed my kid on the stairs to calm him down it was so chaotic in there. I noticed that there were hanging slabs of meet in the basement with flies around them. The bathroom downstairs had nowhere to change a diaper except for on the counter between the sinks. It’s really not the true Italian family-style experience but some bastardized Disneyland version like the spots on Columbus. Shame on them.
Escorted to a table in the bar/cellar. Ambiance was church basement, service was indifferent, nothing notable about the food. Never again.
I have had excellent meals here for 30 years and just returned hoping it would be the same. It was...almost. The food remained excellent, they still served the Petroni wines, and the ambiance was similar with experienced waiters and bartenders. What was different? I had to ask for the olive oil! Italian restaurants are also renown the expectation that you will not feel rushed, have the time to enjoy your meal and your friends, and even have the table for the evening if desired. Unfortunately, something has been lost with this tradition at North Beach Restaurant. One felt hurried, if not harried and that took away some from the experience. However, I will be sure to return at the next opportunity and expect that similar decisions by others has necessitated the need to move people through the restaurant. Too bad that some things are not timeless.
Wonderful as always!
