About Trattoria Contadina
Thirty years ago Vincent Correnti stepped foot on the corner of Union & Mason and knew that it would be the corner to start the Correnti family legacy in North Beach. Very shortly after that his sons Dirk and Bret and his sister Ann were all here to make their family trattoria thrive. Over thirty years later this place is still full of Correnti’s. Current owners Gina & Kevin both feel a great responsibility to keep "THE TRATT " going in Kevin's grandfather, Vince Correnti's honor.

Trattoria Contadina Ratings and Reviews
Awesome host Vince (family of owner) and servers. Amazing food. Tiny but charming and really warm atmosphere. We’re from the NY area and this food is as authentic Italian as it gets. Our second time here and it’s a must whenever we come to SF. We hugged it out with both Vince & Kevin (owners) as we left! Feels like family here.
The food was only mediocre. The pasta was overdone and the red sauce had no taste. The eggplant appetizer was the best part of the meal. The Ceasar salad dressing was not pungent enough. Only the addition of the anchovies (for an extra $3.00 dollars) made it tasty. The service was only fair though we were asked several times how the food was. On balance I would not recommend this restaurant to friends.
This is our second visit to this great neighborhood Italian. The diavolo sauce was the best that we've had and we have tasted plenty.Our friends enjoyed gnocchi and were nice enough to share some. Gnocchi will be on our order next time. Prices are reasonable, especially for what is served, and the service is fun and helpful.
Upon entering the restaurant you are pleasantly welcomed not only by the hostess by then again by the servers. Strongly recommend reservations but If you don’t have any they try really hard to fit you in. They support “mom and pop” establishments from getting meat locally and vegetables. Everything we ordered was extremely tasty. Our server Nancy was very knowledgeable about the wine and menu. We will be back!
Went for a friend’s birthday and really enjoyed it. For appetizers we had the bruschetta, which was just ok that night, and the pickled things which were a big hit. For my main, I had the spaghetti and meatballs which was yummy. A friend had the special risotto with artichokes, minus the chicken, and she absolutely loved it. 2 other friends had the Daviola and really enjoyed it. Great for small intimate gatherings! Terrific service!
Our group of 5 was very disappointed in our dining experience at Trattoria Contadina. The restaurant was run down, cramped and noisy. The service was ok, especially from the female busser who cared for us.
All of the above would have been forgiven if the food had been well-prepared and appropriately priced. Not one of us finished our meal or took home leftovers. All I can say is that the positive reviews that I saw must have come from those unfamiliar with Italian food. A tremendous disappointment!
We had reservations and were seated right away. We were served a complimentary glass of champagne as we were celebrating our anniversary. Our service was prompt and the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the beef ravioli and my husband had the Prego. The food was so good! It was served piping hot and had so much flavor. We finished our meal with the tiramisu and gelato. Everything was delicious and was worth every carb. We will definitely return when we visit San Francisco again. By the time we left the restaurant had a 2 hour wait so make sure to book a reservation!
Cozy family owned restaurant with great menu choices. Salmon Risotto was melt in your mouth delicious. Our vegetarian friend swooned over the gnocchi with cheese. Thank you, Kevin for so proudly sharing your family history of the restaurant. So happy you continue to be successful. This is truly a North Beach neighborhood gem!! All the best!!
Found this gem on TripAdvisor then linked in to Opentable to book. We had also seen it from the cable car heading to pier. We were sat quickly and luckily for us had a window seat next to a fun group, the service was great and the food also. We ordered the shared antipasti plate to start, certainly big enough for 2. We both ordered pasta and were not disappointed. Will visit again when in SFO next.
Excellent food, great service. Highly recommend. My family ate at the restaurant this weekend for my birthday dinner. Food was outstanding. Very friendly, warm, welcoming atmosphere. It's a local neighborhood restaurant and seating is tight but great windows.
When I visit San Francisco my stay always includes a meal at Trattoria. It always satisfies and I am very comfortable going there. I am familiar with the neighbor and have known the family for many years. It is always packed and when you get there early for your reservation, sometimes they might not be able to seat you until you are closer to your original time.
Trattoria Contadina had very good food and the service was great. The noise level is high as had a challenge to have a conversation heard. If you are looking for a good neighborhood restaurant with good food, service but without the frills this is the place. If you want quiet & romantic this is not the place for you
Like visiting one of your best friends, always something special and never disappoints. The food is always good and often very memorable. It’s not Michelin 5 star but neither are the prices. Very good food, reasonably priced, fun place with good owners and staff. It’s the kind of restaurant I wish I could eat at every week but I live 2.5 hrs. away. If they only had a parking lot but then we could never get in!
