We're going to be visiting the Bay Area in mid-May. We've been there several times and the last few we've stayed with family in Berkeley. This trip we've booked some time in SF proper in the North Beach area. We're looking for current favorites within walking distance of City Lights (the hotel is at 444 Columbus), and while Italian is preferable, it's not essential. We'll most likely be a dinner party of 6, and are looking to stay in the $50 per person range. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
