North Beach is San Francisco's Little Italy, and is a hugely popular restaurant and bar area. Here you will find cable cars, Lombard Street, Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill, Washington Square, and the Italian Cathedral.

For nightlife you have microbreweries, Irish pubs, late night pizza shops, Grant Avenue's cafes, Broadway's strip clubs, and more. Restaurants are mostly Italian, but you can find good Indian, Chinese, Persian, Mediterranean, Mexican and more.

In 2004 the Project for Public Spaces named North Beach the third best neighborhood in North America behind only downtown Vancouver (Granville Island) and East Village in New York City. They also named Washington Square in North Beach as the 10th best square and plaza in the world!
