I'll be in town in March (from Minneapolis--an italian wasteland) and I'm anxious to try some good italian. I've been to Sodini's in North Beach but I'm convinced there must be better--though years ago chicken a la sodini was a treat. Also, decent tomales and tacos would be a nice find. I'll be staying at the St Francis. Lemme know what you can. I'll be happy, by the way, to trade for MPLS info--I've got lines on great mexican and vietanamese out here.
