    The food, service and ambiance were all exceptional. We’ve recently traveled to Italy and the food at North Beach is very authentic Italian. Our first time eating here again since the pandemic and North Beach is still fantastic

    I've dined here many times before and the food is always great. The service is phenomenal (which seems to be lacking in many places these days) as well. We finished fairly late this time and, since the restaurant wasn't too busy, we requested a tour of the lower levels of the restaurant. The history and stories of this place are very cool! I'll always recommend North Beach to anybody visiting San Francisco.

    We have been going to North Beach for years and this was the worst. Ordered the veal chop, medium, but it came out rare! It does not taste the same after cooking it again. Our waiter was stretched too thin with too many table to handle. Completely ignored us all night. Very disappointed!

    The food was great. My wife has long loved their cannelloni. When we got there, however, we discovered it was mo longer on the menu. We asked the server about it and were told that even though it wasn’t on the menu, the kitchen would still be happy to make it for her. They did and it was delicious. Now that’s a great restaurant!

    The staff at North Beach are amazing. We were visiting from out of town and our three generations of family showed up completely underdressed. They immediately welcomed us and made us feel at home. To the point where my 11 year old son said "Wow, that waiter is really nice." The food was great, the ambience was perfect, and the staff really knows their craft! Thank you!

    The food was good but not great, more like ordinary fare for tourists. The servers were attentive but overly so. The lead waiter was somewhat dour though polite, and he seemed to be rushing us through the stages of the meal to turn the table. Prices were somewhat high and especially for alcoholic beverages.

    Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, and it did not disappoint. The service, food, and environment were excellent. Their sommelier helped us to pick our a nice smooth Chianti. We started with proscuitto with melon and the warm spinach salad. Both were yummy, it the spinach salad was SO good. My boyfriend had the lasagna and I had the ravioli -both were quite good but a little salty. And we finished with the chocolate pistachio cake-which was surprisingly light. We both enjoyed it. We will most certainly be back. Thank you for making a special evening extra special!

    We went with a couple from Colorado who loved North Beach Restaurant and have dined here whenever they are in town. We can understand their feelings. The service was excellent, the food and wine superb, and the ambience of this old-style restaurant quite enjoyable. We would definitely recommend it to other friends.

    An excellent choice for my birthday! We ordered quite a bit, but what most stands out for me personally was the pasta de la casa. I'd drive back for that. It took us over an hour to get there. I have absolutely nothing to complain about this place. Great service tool.

    Had a very nice experience at North Beach Restaurant a couple years ago. Thus, we have been trying to try it again. Last Sat, we had the dinner at the restaurant. The server was a bit disorganized and talked too much. We started with Cesar salad and calamari vignette. The lettuce looked tired and brown. The calamari was not fresh and very cold. The texture of the calamari was soft and a tag mushy. For the entrees, we had halibut and roasted chicken. The halibut was overcooked. The chicken was fine. The sauce was the best part of the dish. We had zabaione for the dessert. The dessert was cold. The zabaione was smooth but lack of masala wine favor.
