Tips from locals

Finalist for best restaurant in the country a couple of years ago. Book weeks in advance or swing by after 9:30 and sit at the communal table.

Best pasta in the world, also not so fancy but very special.
April 11, 2019
“Heavenly” handmade pastas are the main attraction at this high-profile Mission Italian, where chef Thomas McNaughton’s seasonally inspired creations also include “terrific” wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and “unique” tasting menus, all delivered by an “energized staff”; tables in the “casual” space…

You can order half-orders of anything on the menu, we recommend trying all the pastas!

Hard to get into but well worth, get there 10 minutes before they open and you’ll get in!

Cocktail Bar
“Arguably the best cocktails in the city. An uber hip award-winning craft cocktail bar, but can be crowded so be prepared. Whimsical menus rotate every few months. Next door to Sightglass Coffee and Salumeria.”

“A casual and very good cafe that's been a part of the mission district for a long long time. Many local's favorite! Very good sandwiches, salads and pizzas. Not only a cafe, you can grab wine and beer and there is a beautiful outdoor patio with heat lamps. They still play bluegrass at night sometimes! love this place!”
