After Midnight Foodie Dream – You want gnocchi, calzones or any other italian delicacy, you can get it in the wee hours!(til 2am) It's not just thrown together but it will come out fast, hot & will make you down it! You can smell the fresh,made bread before they set it on the table. Be careful, because it is possible to grub down three before your food comes. There is ourdoor seating with heaters, but I prefer a booth in the center to people watch inside & out. The coffee is caffeine ridden & lovable! You wont want dessert(unless that's all you came for)the main dishes come in generous portions! AND IT'S SF NORTH BEACH!! Lively & classic SF!
great for a sunny day! – If you're lucky and outdoor seating is available on a warm, sunny day, it's nice to able to enjoy your meal and sip a mojito while people-watching. Yummy flavored mojitos and decent entrees (I don't remember the name but it was some kind of lamb tenderloin + baby arrugula dish - SO good!) makes this place definitely worth coming back. However, be warned that outdoor seating comes with a price - it takes forever to get any kind of attention from the waitstaff!
A great late night dining option – I always end up at Calzone's with a group of friends around midnight. I don't know where I would go if they didn't stay open until 1am, probably be stuck with one of the junky pizza by the slice joints. The food is consistent -- I love the smoked salmon pizza, it's always crisp and flavorful. I'm also a fan of the italian potstickers -- a nice riff on the chinese classic, these coming filled with italian sausage. The Moscow mojito is a dangerous concotion -- it should not be so easy to drink the tangy vodka laced beverage! And I admit, I love the fresh sugar cane garnish and have been seen chewing on it without shame.
good location – This place is fun for people watching on a sunday afternoon while sipping a Mojito. Their finger foods are ok, but nothing worth bragging about. It's the atmosphere and location that brings me back time and again. The outdoor service is super slow so don't go if you're in a rush and be prepared to walk up to the bar to order your own drinks, but it makes for a nice leisurely somewhat tasty meal.
Best Place for Late Night Food – Best Mojito in NB. Great Calamari, Crab Salad and Pizza. They are open till 1am with a very good service. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Best french fries ever! – This place is totally unassuming, but I am glad I gae it a try. I've been several times, and each time was great. I love thier chicken sandwiches, the maui onion salad with crostini, and just about anything else I have ever eaten here. The service is really good, the food is good, and on warm nights ask to sit outside so that you can watch all of the people walking by. Late night proves to be a real entertaining experience.
Best gnocchi! – My date and I were walking around North Beach, trying to decide what Italian restaurant we wanted to have lunch at. We decided to give Calzone's a try. We were totally impressed with our meal! To start, we had the Bruchetta. So good!!!
He had the Chicken and Asparagus with homemade fettuccini. I had a variation of the homemade Gnocchi. I requested to have them made with a basil pesto and to add chicken. Awesome! I know most chefs don't like their dishes changed, but this ended up being the best gnocchi I've ever had! They just melted in my mouth!
For dessert, my date had a lemon torte of some kind and I had the Tiramisu. It was the best Tiramisu I've had anywhere, except in Chicago. The torte was good, but I'm not a huge lemon person.
Service was pretty good, but we had to ask for a refill for my date's iced tea. Our server was very pleasant and accommodating. I'll definitely go back!
A slice of Italy – This is one of the greatest little spots in North Beach. After a nite of great live music, we were walking down Columbus and noticed the checkerd sidewalk. Grabed a table outside and had the best late nite dinner we have ever had. The food is outstanding and they have a nice wine list. The patio is heated as well for those chilly nites. The service was great and the prices are very reasonable. Every time I go to North Beach I dine here.
yummie sandwich – had a baguette burger that was good... grilled onions, meat was juicy and flavorfull. the tiramisu for dessert was yummie. service was average. i went during the afternoon on a weekday so it wasn't really crowded.
Awesome Food, Great Location – My friends and I had a great time at Calzone's the other day. One friend had the burger, which looked incredible. She said it was one of the best she's ever had. I had the orzo with coteghino sausage and the spinach salad - they were both really, really good. Fun place to go with alot of people. They have great Mojitos! We will definately come back sooner than later!
