San Francisco - North Beach
I have been down to San Francisco several times now and on my last visit we walked through China town and into North Beach. I instantly fell in love with the area. North Beach is full of Italian restaurants, bars, strip clubs (if your into that), and little shops. We ended up snagging a tiny table at E Tutto Qua under the stair well. Let me tell you, I lived in Italy for a while and this place was legit. Everyone was speaking Italian and singing loudly. The food was amazing and tasted just as good as it did in Italy. I would recommend making a reservation for sure. It was packed! I'm not sure how we snagged a table. You won't leave this restruarant without a smile on your face.
What I ate: Cheese Pizza (yes basic but delicious) and terimasu (if you like terminus don't skip out it was amazing)
What I drank: Birra Moretti
What I wore:
I have to say the boots I am wearing in this picture are so comfortable. Walking around the city in them was a breeze. I've had this pair over 2 years now and they have really held up. If you're looking for a comfortable, heeled bootie I would defiently recommend these.
After dinner we walked onto a little side street that was lined with local bars and shops. I would recommend if you visit north beach be ready to eat Italian food, because that is all there is. If you go during the day there are a ton of restaurants with covered patio seating. Make a reservation and wander the streets. Wandering is the best way to stumble upon a hidden treasure.
