In North Beach there are a million Italian places but Jane knows her stuff and recommended this one, so we tried it out. Jane and I started off with the bruschetta, which was tasty though I wasn’t very good at keeping the stuff on the bread as I ate it. The key to a good italian place is supposed to be the gnocchi, so that’s what Jane got (she’d loved it before) and I got hte gnocchi panchetta. Both were really good. Splurged on a little chocolate souffle for dessert that was appropiately yummy. That was that! The service overall was good, and most of the waitstaff was “quite attractive.” I’ve heard they will dance, but we didn’t observe any of that.
Be careful if you go here, they don’t take credit cards, but the food is great.
Gretchen introduced me to this place a few years ago, and I must say, for a small place, it sure packs a large size punch. The Mozzerella Caprese is very fresh and tasty, and the raviolis are very good as well.
