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.
The carpaccio and risotto were absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for an intimate and delicious Italian meal.
Trattoria Contadina is always wonderful in every way.
A delicious hole in the wall Italian restaurant! Honestly one of the best meals we had while visiting SF. Perfect date night!
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.
TC never fails to deliver an authentic Italian experience with excellent service.
I took my girlfriend here on her 25th birthday. THIS PLACE IS INSANELY AMAZING.
We were very well taken care of by the hostess and the wait staff. Dinner was very good. I loved the ambiance. I’ll definitely be back and definitely recommend it to others.
Wonderful North Beach Italian experience. I’ve been coming here over 30 years and it never disappoints!
Food, service, and ambiance were all excellent and at a reasonable price.
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.
Our 2nd visit to the restaurant and were once again pleased with the food and service, we will return again when in SF.
Poor service. Food not as good as advertised.
We had a surprising great dinner at this small unpretentious restaurant with great service and lively ambience.
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.
Great food! The meatballs were fantastic, as was the pasta and wine. Thanks!
Always great attention to every detail and request. Never rushed. Pure family.
Love, love, love! What a treat last week to see the cheese ravioli on the menu - it was amazing. Best Caesar too. And the tiramisu? Y. U. M.
Great vibe, location is great and the people are so friendly. Love this place. Welcoming and family feel. Food is terrific too.
Good home style italian food. I have been coming here for 15 years and it never lets me down. Popular among locals and lesser known by tourists.
Excellent as always. Our favorite !
Great service, delicious food, moderate prices. Loved the spaghetti with clams and the risotto special!
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.
Never disappoints! One of my SF favorites. I've been coming here for over 20 years.
Food was absolutely awesome! It was great to have a old school Italian restaurant that provided exceptional cuisine right in North Beach / Little Italy -- Bravo!!
Reunion with out if state friends
The epitome of a Trattoria in San Fran.
Old school family run Fantastic
Great food and service.
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.
This restaurant was a great place to celebrate our 8th anniversary. Very lively, busy yet the service and food was great.
We were a family group of 7 and they accommodated all of our needs. Good authentic Italian food with very helpful and friendly service. They were very aware of the needs of small children & brought their food very quickly
Amazing, as always. Favorite Italian in North Beach. No question
Brought parents from out of town and had an amazing experience
Fantastic! Everything from the service to the amazing and authentic food was spot on! We will be back!
