Which Restaurant has the Best Gnocchi?

I used to LOVE the gnocchi at Michelangelo's in North Beach, but have been disappointed during recent visits. I also had a fantastic gnocchi dish at Bix many, many years ago (I'm still dreaming about it), but it doesn't seem to be a regular menu item. There are a few other places with decent gnocchi, but I'm wondering if anyone on this Board can point me to truly excellent fresh gnocchi? I don't care for gnocchi drowning in overwhelming, heavy sauces (I can do without the heavy gorgonzola and nut sauces), but do enjoy a little cream (pink sauce is great) or simple carmelized butter sauce. Caffe Delle Stelle also used to serve a nice gnocchi with chicken apple sausage. I'm boycotting the restaurant in protest since they took it off the menu :)
