San Francisco-North Beach

This unpretentious Italian sports pub has been a North Beach institution since 1942. As you might expect, it's a properly old-school kind of establishment and we're glad it still exists relatively unchanged and untouched.

This
unpretentious Italian sports pub has been a North Beach institution since 1942.
As you might expect, it’s a properly old-school kind of establishment and we’re
glad it still exists relatively unchanged and untouched. Fashions come and go
but this place continues to do its own thing. Once past the tricolore exterior
you’ll find yourself in a room a long bar, a scattering of well-worn chairs and
tables, a further scattering of pool tables, and numerous photos on the walls,
of Joe DiMaggio, Tommy Lasorda, Frank Sinatra, and Francis Ford Coppola and the
like, who all knocked back a drink or two here in the past. Equally popular
with old-timers as with a younger crowd who like its vibe, it’s an agreeably
mixed place. There’s a decent range of drinks available, including
Italian-style aperitivos and cocktails, as well as a good selection of shots
and beer. There’s a quality jukebox and the atmosphere is great when a big game
is on TV. No food though, so you may want to fuel up on pizza at nearby Golden
Boy.
