A great lunch at Cotogna [San Francisco]

I'm trying to write something as soon as possible for each of my restaurant reports because the last time I did a whole trip report I waited too long and even with notes forgot much of the details.

Had breakfast at Dottie's. A pretty dicey neighborhood but I liked the restaurant and would return. Had the Lamb sausage scramble with chile cornbread and jalapeño jam. It was very good

Went to the Ferry Bldg. That is quite a nice market you' have here. I didn't eat much because I had lunch plans.

After walking around the market for about an hour I walked to the Tadich Grill just to have a drink and see the place. Could not believe there was a line at 11:25am. They open at 11:30 I enjoyed talking to the bartender and waiters.

I then walked to Cotogna and had an excellent light meal. I started with the spinach sformato which was very good but not as good as the ricotta raviolo with farm egg. The raviolo was absolutely delicious . I highly recommend it.

If I hadn't had a large breakfast I would have liked to have tried another pasta dish but I was pretty full by then and finished my meal with an espresso. I really liked the restaurant and would return if I came back to SF.

It also made me want to try their other restaurant Quince.
