AMAZING food at this tiny and wonderful restaurant in Russian Hill - great variety and DELICIOUS - in San Francisco. This places beats all of the italian places in North Beach (i.e. tacky tourist traps with mediocre food) by leaps and bounds. Best italian in SF by far. Service is sometimes questionable a little but can be overlooked
