Restaurant recommendations in San Francisco

We (2 cousins, DH and I) will be visiting SF at the end of May for a few days. We will be staying near Fishermans Wharf. We need recommendations for at least 2 nights. The restaurants need not be at or near Fishermans Wharf, preferably not, unless something is really worthwhile. We were thinking around $25-$30 pp for either starter and main or main and dessert, or is that too conservative for SF. No tourist traps if possible, and DH is not fond of fish or seafood except salmon. Thanks for your help in advance.

Barbacco and Firefly are two places I have been to recently that would push your budget just a bit, but would be fun places to visit. Firefly is very much a neighborhood (Noe Valley) haunt with a fun and funky vibe. Some love it. Some, not so much. I thought the food was delicious, but it was a bit noisy. Barbacco serves delicious Italian small and not-so-small plates in a fun and lively atmosphere in the financial district. Service at both was very good.

Go to Yelp and type in the food you want ( Italian, etc.) and the area ( north beach, etc.) You will get several choices with numerous reviews from people that have eaten there

Hello joto, here is an Italian restaurant in North Beach that might be of interest to you. Many Fodorites have enjoyed this restaurant and have often returned to it several times. Wishing you a wonderful time in San Francisco.
