Great traditional Italian cooking! This place should get protection as a historic landmark. I have been coming here since I was a kid, and even my elderly Italian relatives can’t find something to complain about. The service is always amazing, the atmosphere is lovely but casual, the prices decent and the food is KILLER. On Thursdays, bottles of wine are half off.
Try anything and you won’t be disappointed. I was a vegetarian for years and their pastas always left me satisfied. The vegetable ravioli are incredible and one of a kind. The MVP here is the gnocchi al pesto. The gnocchi are consistently soft, creamy pillows that melt in your mouth and when they smother those those lovely morsels in an ambrosial combination of basil, garlic, cheese and a touch of cream it is an absolute DREAM.
I have been to Italy, lived in New York City for years and tried many places in SF, and I can honestly say this is some of the best food I have EVER had. GO!
