In the Italian neighbourhood of North Beach, this classic Roman restaurant is a favourite. A good place to take the family, it’s an unpretentious, atmospheric trattoria that offers delicious seafood, risottos, home-made pasta, burrata, delicate seasonal vegetable dishes and prosciutto. It also has an extensive wine list. And if you’re in North Beach and just want a quick lunch, you can’t go past Tony’s Pizza Napoletana (570 Stockton Street) for a pizza slice.
This Italian neighborhood has a relaxed charm you don’t get in Union Square. North Beach is great for wandering and eating, adjacent to Chinatown, close to Coit Tower and City Lights Bookstore as well as easy walking distance to most of the city’s best sights.
