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.

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.

We went to Trattoria Contidina over 20 years ago. I was happy to see they still had the porcini mushroom pasta special that I loved! The tirmisu was outstanding! Ciao

Trattoria Contadina is "just right." The location is energetic enough - but also far enough away from the frenetic areas only a block away. The food is interesting, and the variety is sufficient - simple fare with a modern twist. Everyone who works there is oh-so friendly. The wines are reasonably priced, and "a good time was had by all."

Attentive service.
Food tastes fresh.
Feels like a local hang out.
Don’t like the music. Wish they played more authentic Italian like they used to, or at least a more euro dining selection.

My wife, then girlfriend, found this magnificent restaurant 15 years ago. And the experience was unforgettable. What was lost from our memory was the name. Even though we had returned to the city 3 times since then, one time being for our honeymoon 11 years ago, we had not enjoyed the wonderful experience. On our 11th Anniversary trip, on a walk to the warf, we encountered the magical place. We quickly booked a reservation for the next day. What a wonderful experience. Friendly staff, great ambiance and as per usual great tasting food! I now have the restaurant in my phone for our next trip to the city! Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy Trattoria Contadina!

A friend had recommended this place a few times. I finally made reservations for when my husband's parents were in town, so there was some pressure to have it be just right. It exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious, the staff friendly, & the overall atmosphere & experience cozy & fun. I can't wait to go back just the two of us!

Read a lot of great reviews about this restaurant but to be honest, I'm not sure what all the hype is about. Made a reservation two weeks in advance an glad I did because when we got there, people were spilling out of the entrance out onto the sidewalk waiting for a table.

Once inside however, the food was remarkably unimpressive and average at best. The meatball appetizer was OK but I've had just as good from a supermarket. The snapper entree was a bit under cooked and the pasta dish was nothing special.

With all the great restaurants in the city I'm not sure why this one gets such high marks. At least it wasn't overpriced...by San Francisco standards.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on November 11, 2017

The food was on the bland side my husband really likes meat sauce with his Italian Food and they did have meatballs but no meat sauce only a bland marinara. The feel was more of a spaghetti factory atmosphere with lots of small children versus a date night place. I was disappointed in the Gnochi they were really heavy like led balloons in your stomach versus a light fluffy potato dumpling.

Trattoria Contadina is some of the best Italian food in the city. If you’re looking for good pasta, delicious drinks, and a great place to enjoy a meal with a special someone or friends, this is a great choice.

Great neighborhood restaurant for dinner after Beach Blanket Babylon. Enjoyed the wine, appetizers, salad...loved the "Pickled things." But the entrée was just ok. Perhaps I ordered incorrectly. The service was great, the atmosphere fun and cozy. I'd try it again.

Trattoria Contadina is an absolutely wonderful neighborhood restaurant with great food and friendly service. While the restaurant is a local gem, it is not secret. It was full on a Thursday evening and a reservation during prime dining hours or days is a must. This it the best of fresh, comfort food, is prepared with simplicity and love. It is a great value, and the food is the focus of this dining experience. I can't wait to visit again.
