Fodor's Review

You'll fall for the charm of this retro North Beach institution, where the nostalgia isn't just in the decor but on the menu. Forget everything you know about health post-1955, because, really, how often can you order a hamburger steak seasoned to perfection? Pot roast and five different veal dishes add to the mid-century meat-heavy menu. The butterscotch pudding, an all-cream confection, is topped with whipped mascarpone and sea salt. Black Formica tabletops, checkerboard floors, and red leather booths provide the backdrop at this 1937 institution (only in this location since 2012.)
