Will be in SF for a few days in 3/02 and am looking for a few authentic Italian meals. I don't care particularly about the region--I'd just like the food to be honest, unfancy, and satisfying.
San Diego (my current hometown) is remarkably devoid of the above (although we certainly have a large selection of overpriced mediocre Italian "trattorias").
I will greatly appreciate SF Chowhound suggestions. Thanks in advance.
