Pizzeria
Barbara is a lively Italian restaurant inspired by the rustic tradition of Roman pizzerie, opening in San Francisco’s historic Italian district of North Beach in September 2018 to serve as the neighborhood destination for casual dinning. We feature an energetic open kitchen, creating fresh takes on classics as well as original inventions showcasing seasonal and local ingredients, transporting taste of the eternal city to San Francisco. We offer craft cocktails, Italian and Californian wines, indoor and outdoor seating, and Barbara's fun, warm, style pairs well with the restaurant’s classic Italian comfort and friendly spirit.

    There was no point in booking a reservation as when we arrived we were told that “everyone has a table” and were told to sit at the bar to eat with three bar stools even though we were a party of four. We then finally got a table but outside under an extremely loud speaker and when we asked for it to be turned down, we were told no. The food was basic and not the best, the only positive thing about that restaurant was the location which is why it’s crowded, not because of the quality of food and service. I would HIGHLY recommend to NOT eat there.

    I had a good time dining at this pinseria. Good food and wine, ample portions, and solid service. I would love to go back and try other items on the menu.

    Went w/ some colleagues for a casual Italian in North Beach--primarily for the roman style pizza. Pizza was pretty good, would order again. Wine options were not good and some of our wine-by-the-glass we sent back because had been corked for too long. Meatballs were good, others had pasta which they all seemed to like. Service was alright. Overall--good for a casual pizza & some basic Italian classics but if you are entertaining, I think there are better, more upscale options in the area.

    We've eaten here many times, but my husband ordered a steak for the first time, and LOVED IT! My cacio e pepe was a little dry this time, but still quite good. The pinsa was so good, as always, and the wine hit the spot. Great service and fun vibe.

    The drinks were small (martini glass only 2/3 full and Negroni buried in ice). Linguini and clams was the saltiest and briniest I have ever had (don’t order it); the ragu was decent. The pizzas looked good. Very loud.

    This place is a trap. Don’t get fooled. They do not honor reservations, always over booked or will just stick you outside. The food looks like it’s good to be good, it’s not. It’s mediocre. The food lacks flavor and salt. And this is coming from someone who loves all Italian food. I wanted to like this place. But I feel obligated to tell people is disappointing.

    The restaurant offers a great selection of Roman dishes and Italian wines. However, the kitchen doesn’t know how to make good cacio e pepe. The dish came out with clumps of cheese and fell short in taste.
