I visited San Francisco about 8 years ago and had 3 very memorable meals.
The first was a Clam and garlic pizza in a small pizzeria that was a walk up a hill (no surprise there) I think somewhere near Ben & Jerry's, which I think was in North beach.
The second was an Italian restaurant near the financial district. The restaurant was on 2 floors the ground floor having a few tables and a bar and the main restaurant upstairs was dimly lit and romantic. Something like Cafe Macaroni? Does that ring a bell with anyone.
If anybody has any insight as to the names and exact locations I'd really appreciate it.
Also, 8 years later, are these places still worth a visit for old times sake?
