North Beach

North Beach is a rare neighborhood, it manages to be a perennial hit with tourists while remaining beloved by San Franciscans. It's best known as San Francisco's Little Italy, with its high density of check-clothed ristorantes, cafes and Old World delicatessens. It's also a popular pilgrimage for fans of the Beat movement. However, North Beach is no relic, and it has much to offer beyond pasta and poetry. This vital neighborhood is home to some of the liveliest nightclubs and bars in town and small boutiques carrying handmade clothing and imported goods dot the streets. Whether taking in the historic landmarks, sampling house-roasted espressos, shopping or chowing down, North Beach has plenty to offer.
