What's your favorite north beach (sf) restaurant
We'll be staying in north beach next month and want to enjoy wonderful Italian cuisine both casual and upscale. How about good places for lunch, coffee in the area?

Giovanni's for lunch, It is a shrimp truck just off the highway maybe a few miles from Turtle Bay Resort. Best shrimp ever, that's all they have by the way. The reason I keep going back to Oahu.

Oh you meant SF. Oops, I'm a doofus.

Well, I like Rose Pistola and Ideale.

However, now I wish I could take a trip and try Giovanni's!! ;)

Da Flora on Columbus serves very delicious Venetian Italian food in a somewhat quirky room. It is not your typical North Beach Italian osteria.

Koi is a hot restaurant these days.

My wife and I enjoyed eating dinner at The House a couple of years ago.

I also like Da Flora.

Caffe Sport is a casual funky institution in North Beach. Italian seafood and pastas are their specialty. You may find yourselves sitting at a big table with others in a really fun place.

All duty noted. Stu, can you ring in on this?

Spruce is a restuarant which is on the Conde Nast Hot List Tables for 2008. It's not in North Beach but from what I hear it's worth a visit. My wife and I are planning on eating here when we visit in late July.
