About North Beach

Steeped in Italian character, San Francisco's original waterfront is a good place to have coffee, take a stroll, and enjoy Washington Square Park. Terrific North Beach dining includes Fior d'Italia, Little City Antipasti, Moose's and Washington Bar and Grill. The Beat Generation also made this area famous, so a stop at City Lights Bookstore and Vesuvio Cafe is a must.
