Brought a friend here for a birthday dinner on a busy Saturday night. The food was amazing. The drinks were amazing. The host was awesome. The waiter was one of the worst either of us have had in our lives. Just terrible and put a damper on the entire evening. Clearly the owners of this restaurant have never seen this guy operate. Not sure I would ever come back despite the delicious food.

Great food and great service at a reasonable price. An excellent North Beach Italian restaurant that has been a neighborhood gem since the 1970's. I first ate here in the 1980's and have always had great food and service - Highly Recommended. As an added bonus, an A-list rock star that is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was at the table next to us. He seemed to be somewhat of a regular, since he knew the staff.

excellent dinner with superb service - noise level was very high due to a table of about 15 people that overpowered the room , difficult to converse across the table . They should have been seated in a separate room

Just Go! The North Beach Restaurant is easily my favorite Italian restaurant in San Francisco and one of my favorite restaurants. This is a great place for a date or special occasion. The food is fantastic, and the service is professional. The restaurant is decorated with beautiful art including many signed Juan Miro prints. I been going for over 25 years and love every meal. They are also great about accommodating special dietary needs. I took my mother and she was on a special diet. She told the waiter what she needed and they made something she loved. You'll also be able to have a conversation without any effort, as this is not a loud restaurant.

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!!

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!

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!

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.

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
