San Francisco is a great foodie destination and we love that our good ‘ol City by the Bay gives us Dine About Town twice a year so that we can keep trying out restaurants we wouldn’t normally know about.
This year, we went to Vicoletto, a quaint Italian restaurant in the heart of San Francisco’s North Beach district, otherwise known a Little Italy. Normally, Dine About Town lasts for a week or two in January and June, but this restaurant is extending its $36.89 three-course menu through the end of the month.
The prix fixe list has a good selection to choose from (some restaurants have only two or three options for appetizers and entrees). Here’s what we had:
Starters: Mussels (above) sauteed in white wine with light tomato sauce and fresh basil.
Burrata cheese lightly dressed with cherry tomatoes and arugula served with grilled bread.
Entrees: House made pappardelle with porcini mushroom, grana padana and white truffle oil.
Black ink squid spaghetti with clams, fresh squid in light tomato sauce. This was a first for us! Very subtle in flavor with delicious, fresh seafood.
Dessert consisted of the usual Italian suspects: panna cotta with a raspberry sauce and light tiramisu.
If you’re looking for simple Italian recipes, you’ll enjoy Vicoletto. For the more modern eater, these classics may not wow your palate.
Vicoletto is located at 550 Green Street @ Columbus Avenue in San Francisco.
