L'Osteria Del Forno, San Francisco: 4 reviews and 5 photos

  L'Osteria de Forno, North Beach, San Francisco
by karenincalifornia

Great tiny little Italian bistro (only 28 seats) in North Beach. Staff is Italian. Owned by two Italian women from Varese and Bologna. Long lines at lunch. Get there before noon or after 1pm. No reservations. No credit cards accepted. Lunch and dinner.

Favorite Dish: Delicious antipasto, foccacio sandwiches, pizza, pasta. Save room for tiramisu.

Pay no attention to that cop busting the guys in the corner of this picture. We don't. Seriously, North Beach is very safe.
