Serving up delicious Italian fare, Piazza Pellegrini has something for just about everyone. The pasta arrabbiata is a particular favorite with diners, but many also love the authentic Italian pizzas served. There are plenty of options for dessert Piazza Pellegrini as well, including the ever-popular crostata di mele topped with vanilla gelato.

Guests are welcome to dine in the dining room, but there is also an outdoor patio area with heat lamps to make dining comfortable for most of the year. Make sure to sample a glass or two from Piazza Pellegrini's extensive wine list, which includes authentic Italian vintages.

We were looking for a great italian food and we found it. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious! It is quite loud in the restaurant, but otherwise great place!

You know it's a good Italian restaurant when a lot of the patrons are Italian! Great food, service and value, we would definitely eat here again. Make sure to try the beef carpaccio and the carbonara. Delicious!

There is nothing more pleasing and satisfying then have a dining experience where both the food and the service are top notch. This restaurant makes you feel welcomed from the second you hit the door, throughout dinner and even on the way out. There are hundreds of places on can chose to dine but when you hit a home run like Piazza Pellegrini it makes for a fun and memorable evening.

I would go back in a heart beat, and have recommended this to several friends already. I loved everything about this place. And, as a bonus, there is a place for parking! Imagne!! In North Beach!

Our family truly enjoyed our first experience here. The service was superb, the food was delicious! Very Authentic Italian. We asked for some substitutes on the menu and our waiter was happy to oblige our needs.
Bread was fresh, great olive oil, loved my award winning pasta with meatballs and pancetta! My husband had the Petrale Sole, also a hit! We shared a sausage/mushroom pizza and a caprese salad which were very good as well.
We definitely plan to return. Don't miss out!

Busy, crowded, lively -- our waiter, Esteban, gave outstanding service! The capellini was truly al dente with a most delicious sauce. . . Piazza Pellegrini is always our choice when we go to Beach Blanket Babylon!!

We went here for lunch with friends who were visiting San Francisco. This was a great North Beach find where the food was delicious and the ambiance was just right for enjoying a nice midday meal. The menu offered many nice Italian selections and the service was attentive and friendly. Prices were reasonable for San Francisco and we were delighted to find out there was restaurant parking. If you want a pleasant, relaxing meal and you like good Italian cooking then I recommend you try Piazza Pellegrini.

This was the worst service experience I have ever had at a restaurant. There are so many issues from the fact they were out of bread to the waiter throwing away my friends' dish that she had asked to be boxed up then agressively rubbing her arms and telling her to "just relax" when she tried to figure out where her food was that to say this was a disappointing experience would be an understatement

This was our first time at Piazza Pellegrini. The food and service were both outstanding. I loved the lasagna and would highly recommend it. We will definitely return the next visit to San Francisco to try other dishes.

Have had dinner at Pizaaz twice now and both times we have enjoyed it. We arrived early for our reservation and grabbed a table by the window. It's nice to people watch . The place can get very warm and if you hit the unusual warm day in SF you might find it too warm, which was the case for us. But the food was very tasty. Had to ask for parmesan cheese (which was a little annoying because the place was empty). But all in all a good dinner. Bill for 3 was $116 which included one margharita pizza, chicken dish special, and Fettuccine Alfredo con Pollo. Five glasses of wine.

We ate early on the 4th of July - we were visiting San Francisco and found the restaurant on Open Table. It was an easy walk but more of a "neighborhood" spot and away from the crowds. Service was excellent. food was delicious and everyone in our family loved it. The Tiramisu was a huge hit! The staff was so friendly and made us feel very welcome.

We come back when we are in North Beach. The service is always good. They make good suggestions . The specials are always excellent and they give you a lot of food. Do make this a stop when you are looking for good Northern Italian food.

This was a random find on Opentable and I was very happy with everything. The food was extremely delicious and everyone who served us was so welcoming. We didn't feel bombarded from the staff and they never let us be without water or food for very long. Amazing little place in North Beach to relax and have some great food! I will definitely be back!

Small authentic Italian bistro. Great place to people watch on the patio, and perfect location for dinner before Babylon or for dessert & coffee after (but make sure to make reservations!). A big plus is the small parking lot behind the restaurant!

We tried a number of times to come here without reservation and had a long wait hence left. This time we made a reservation upfront. Very efficient and worth while. Gnocchi was amazing, Dessert also great. We will surely come back.

Great arugula salad, warm Italian bread, Pasta Puttanesca, Chicken Piccata. Table looking out on the street scene. This was an unexpected pleasure - the outside signage is overpowering and touristy. Very enjoyable lunch!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out at piazza pelligrini before a show at bimbos. One couple in our group was a little late but we were never rushed or felt pushed to start ordering. The food was great and we plan to return and bring more friends with us.
