- Avoid the North Beach nightmare; valet service is offered nightly.
- Though there are California wines on the wine list, the Italian selections pair best with the kitchen's style of food.
- Avoid the crowds and dine at off-hours. Food is served all day long and deep into the night.

Voted the best new restaurant in the country in 1996, Rose Pistola is a celebration of the bawdy, friendly but sophisticated side of San Francisco’s Italian district – North Beach. This stylish gathering place personifies the vibrancy of its namesake, a North Beach denizen who ran the most colorful bar and restaurant in the neighborhood. With its San Francisco-style dining counter, booths cozy dining room and lively bar, Rose Pistola invites everything from a leisurely glass of Chianti and a bowl of home made pasta or wood fired pizza, to a traditional, Italian-style feast of seasonal antipasti, whole roasted fish, and local vegetable sides. Executive Chef Steve Walker overseas the kitchen and has added his more rustic style to the menu. A full bar and approachable wine list round out the experience. Live jazz trios play in the bar 4 nights a week.
