just one good italian place in north beach, that's all i ask

OK, I'll probably get a lot of links to earlier threads here (and that'd be swell!), but here's my question.

What's a good down-to-earth Italian restaurant in North Beach?

I scanned some recent threads and narrowed it down to Caffe Macaroni and Caffe Sport. They both sound great from what I've read here.

Are these good choices? We are looking for a casual, fun, good dinner tonight and I am willing to make reservations etc.

I've had a brilliant and totally-too-expensive meal in North Beach (and I can't remember the name of the place), but all other NB experiences, where i was wandering along following someone else's lead, were just mediocre tourist italian food.

Help me, chowhound-wan, you're my only hope.
