Firenze by Night Ristorante

People always say that North Beach has the most authentic Italian food in the city. Usually those people are old, resentful of yuppies and the tech bubble, and stand a little too close to you on Muni, but that doesn’t make them wrong. Every single pasta on the menu is ridiculously good, so find a bunch of friends who are willing to share (or at least historically easy to pilfer from).
