I need to find a casual Italian place to take a few friends. We'll be a small party (4), and we just want solid Italian pasta. Nothing fancy, but we want it done right!
Franchino and Da Flora seem like good choices. Has anyone been to either/both? I'd love some comments on either.
We don't want something as expensive as Rose Pistola or big name North Beach tourist traps, nor do we want something as casual as Cafe Puccini. $10-15 per pasta entree would be ideal, if you have suggestions other than the two I've listed.
