|Italian pizza and pasta lunch spot at the edge of North Beach, under the shadow of the Transamerica Pyramid. Decorative inside, with an "antica" Italian village alleyway theme: green shutters, terra cotta-colored plaster walls, exposed brick, etc. About 20 intimate tables inside, 3 small tables outside. Espresso comes with the right pedigree - even down to the Mr. Espresso cups. Served with a good amount of light brown crema. Yet thin body and a sweet, syrup-like flavor that's overpowered by real sourness. Somewhat hot, but the sourness makes you question the brewing temperature.
