Many factors other than food make a restaurant successful, and if you talk to the white-haired woman eating at Bella Trattoria, the difference there is co-owner Alessandro Iacobelli.
The woman, who is nearing 80, cocks her head, coyly smiling as she talks to the handsome Iacobelli, and he flirts right back. She works her way through the classic Italian meal crafted by co-owner Fabrizio Laudati. When she finishes her dessert, Iacobelli, who has worked at Tutto Mare, Pane e Vino, and Scala’s Bistro, is at her side to help her up and see her out the door. It is located at 3854 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, California.
Boneless trout ($13.50) anchors the menu. One night it was stuffed with eggplant and basil; on another mushroom, pancetta and black truffles; on still another, it was splashed with lemon and dusted with a mince of parsley. They have over four hundred reviews on google giving them four-point-six star reviews.
The first thing you are handed when you sit at the long marble counter at Sotto Mare in North Beach is a sheet of paper with Dessert Menu written across the top. At first, I figured owner Gigi Fiorucci wanted us to save room for something he’s proud of. While it seemed kind of odd, the restaurant is filled with quirks, starting with the owner who greets customers with the demeanor of a bookie taking bets.
It’s amazing when you learn that the restaurant has been here for only about four years. It’s a wonder that Fiorucci could collect all this clutter in such a short time, but then again he’s had a lot of experience, having owned such classic places as Mayes Oyster House and Double Play. It is located at 552 Green St, San Francisco, California.
There’s no doubt that this is Fiorucci’s restaurant and that he’s in control. On the menu, he also notes there’s “No Meat-No Chicken-No Trans Fat!” There are only fish and fresh vegetables. They have over two thousand reviews on google giving them four-point-six star reviews.
The economy of Italy is in shambles, so the husband-and-wife team left their lives in Europe — he was a mechanical engineer, she worked in restaurants — to start over. They landed in North Beach, where they opened the Italian Homemade Company in August 2014.
It is a bright, cute shop that sells imported retail goods and house-made sauces, and even makes fresh pasta daily in a dedicated nook just beyond the open kitchen, where jovial cooks guide customers in the ins and outs of the pasta options. It is located at 1919 Union St, San Francisco, California.
On the short prepared-food menu is where Italian Homemade Co. shines a little differently from the likes of nearby elder statesman Molinari and other Italian American delis. They have over one thousand reviews on google giving them four-point-six star reviews.
