North Beach

Our tip(s) of the week pay homage to the lovely neighborhood we call home. For those who don't know, North Beach is known as San Francisco's Little Italy. Not only is it home to some of the city's best pizza (Tomasso's and Tony's), but it also is home to Francis Ford Coppola's own european bistro Cafe Zoetrope, which finds its home in the beautiful Sentinel Building.

Ideal Day in North Beach:

1. Stroll through beautiful Washington Square Park, grabbing a sandwich at Petite Deli & Picnic

2. Step back in time with a cocktail at Tony Nik's Cafe - serving North Beach since 1933

3. Grab a handmade pizza at Tomasso's - the home of the west coast's first pizza oven
