Buca Giovanni vs. L'Osteria Del Forno

Mr. Taster | Mar 1, 2005 03:26 PM

No I am not a troll.. I am an LA hound (almost entirely unfamiliar with the SF chowhound scene) whose boss is in LOVE with Buca Giovanni. I want to send him to a place for dinner the next night that will really bowl him over, and perhaps help his conversion to a chowhound as well :-)

- What can you tell me about these two restaurants?

- Any other North Beach Italian places to recommend?

- How about other Continental/Seafood/Chinese ?

He's a suit-and-tie kind of guy and so won't go foraging for excellent at dingy holes, but cozy and moderately upscale are perfect for him.

Thanks SF hounds-- drop me a line if you need any recs in LA!
