I know it’s New Years Eve, but the wait time to actually receive our food was excessive. The people sitting next to us was seated just before us. They had received, eaten their food and left before we were served our entrees. Also no waiting area to sit while you wait to be seated. Food was good but for us not worth the 40 minute drive. Great place I’m sure if you’re a local.

I have been here multiple times and try something new on the menu every time and have yet to find anything that wasn’t absolutely delicious. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming. This is just a overall great place to dine whether your taking the family out to dinner or going on a special date. I high recommend trying The Place.

However, this one misses the mark. The decor and atmosphere is more cafeteria than fine dining. The attempt to make cocktails from “mock” Alcohol was sad and the food was mediocre at best. Overall, a disappointment.

The food is excellent and staff delightful. We loved the bagna cauda, arugula salad and short rib. They were out of lasagna. Next time we will have pizza from their beautiful pizza oven. They had live music in the bar that is in the back in a separate room so it's not too noisy. Every table was in use when we were there so it was kind of noisy but it added to the fun vibe. Highly recommend!

Last night at The Place, I was totally impressed. The moment we walked in, we were greeted and immediately seated per reservation. Our waitress, Heather was simply fantastic. The food, brought back memories of my grandmother's cooking. The canoles were excellent. My family really enjoyed the evening and looking forward to another soon.

I grew up in New England and this is the best place in California that I’ve had for real Italian American, Boston type food! And I have lived in San Francisco! This definitely surpasses any Italian restaurant in North Beach!
