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.

The motto which hangs at the front door states:

"Lascia i problemi alla porta, mangia & buon appetito"
Translation: Leave your problems at the front door.

Friendly family owned business. Owner was extremely attentive. Great food, very affordable and decent wine selection. I will definitely go back when in San Francisco.

Amazing Sally Silva starter (clams and shrimps with a white wine, citrus, persil sauce) and Vongole pasta (one of the best I ever eaten over world!!)
Wines were fantastic too.
Great and friendly employees.

My friend and I shared two of the specials and a tiramisu. Both dishes were delicious and filling. The venue is a little crowded but the service was great.

A bit salty all around. Good service. Pasta was ok, surprisingly over cooked. Not al dente. Short pours on wine by glass. Ok value at best.

We could not LOVE this place more!! My husband took his mom here in the early 90s when she would visit from GA. Then we met & went here often during our time in SF. Now that we live in LA, we bring our boys at least once a year. Delicious food, attentive service in an awesome neighborhood setting. See you again this summer!!

friends in San Fran recommended this as their favourite restaurant. We were so disappointed in the service. Our waiter ignored us. It actually took 30 minutes before we had a drink in front of us and that was only because we asked the hostess to help us !
VERY noisy restaurant - so be prepared for that.
food was good but not amazing. My daughter had the smoked trout risotto special and it was really not great. I had the veal on the menu and it was quite good. Pasta was average.

Very nice family dinner. Portions were huge, recommend going family style on the pastas. Corkage was $25 which is a little high, but standard for SF. Will definitely be back.

The restaurant itself is very cute and service was great. The food was mediocre at best, the pasta did not taste fresh and the meatballs tasted like they had been pre-cooked and then reheated, making them dry.

We hadn't been to Contadina in quite a while and we're glad to be back! It's close to our apt, the food is good, and the servers charming. To top it all off we got to watch the occasional cablecar rattle on by. We'll definitely be back to 'our local'!

My wife and I lived in SF 15 years ago. We now live in NY. We came to SF this year on my 40th birthday with our two girls. She asked me where I wanted to go for dinner on my birthday...I said absolutely “The Tratt”!

I come here anytime I get the chance. The food is, without a doubt, some of the best in town. The service is terrific. It feels like a close relative’s house. It seems like everything in this place is done with pride and love. Trattoria Contandina truly is a SF gem.

So much salt that I couldn’t eat the pasta.
Service was good by the manager was horrific.
She had two of her friends at the bar who were drunk and yelling. Yes, yelling. When I asked the manager to please ask them to respect that this was a restaurant and not a football match, she did nothing.
Sad for such a venerable venue to be under such poor management.
Skip it folks.
