Venticello or other non-touristy neighborhood places?

Leonardo | Oct 14, 2005 07:37 PM

Greetings from Portland. Coming to SF in two weeks with my girlfriend. Staying at Grosvenor Suites in Nob Hill. 1st night have a res for Luella. 2nd night res for Venticello. However, the latter has had scant attention on this board. Reviews on Citysearch have been very mixed, some raves, some rants.

We also seek Chinese or Italian joints, North Beach/Chinatown or similarly central. Prefer authentic as is possible, not watered down for American taste, not pricey or trendy, no big chains. Quiet & not many families a huge plus.
