Sounds like Harry's Roadhouse. It's amazing how many people they can seat in there.

They're currently open for limited seating, and pick-ups.

Thanks Rancho Chinatown sounds familiar, if I could see the front I would know for sure.

Restaurants in SF are mostly back open now. Went up yesterday for our favorite Italian to find the excellent Il Piatto has closed for good during Covid. Walked over to Osteria de Assisi, it was open so we ate there, not nearly the quality of food and marginal attitude of management still overrides the staff. So now where is best Italian in SF???

Two places in Santa Fe we like for Italian are Sassella (pricey but has been reliably good) and Andiamo.

We used to like Trattoria A Mano (also pricey) but they have been closed since Covid began and I am not sure of their status, or if they even have plans to reopen.

I spent last weekend in SF and ate 2 meals at the flying Tortilla. It was decent but the pancakes were huge and heavy as lead. Dinner at the La Fonda was good. I called Pascals and she said they were having a "soft" opening. I would have gone there over La Fonda.

Two of our favorite restaurants in SF have closed for good, Trattoria al Mano and Il Piatto, the only two Italian restaurants that were really good. Likely due to Covid that simply has lasted too long.

I like the Czech restaurant on north Guadalupe. It's called Dolina. They have a great bakery section, and are also open for lunch and dinner, when they serve some yummy E European food: Paprika Chicken, Hungarian Goulash, homemade cream of mushroom soup, chicken dumplings, salads, and a good bakery menu.

They survived Covid by building a porch onto the buildings. I happened to walk by one evening during one of the breaks in the strict Covid protocol, and the entire porch was packed with people enjoying a rare dinner out. It was nice to see people enjoying the chance to socialize. The place was buzzing with energy!

We loved both of those places, too. The place that took over the space Il Piatto was in, Horno, is good. If you haven't been, I would recommend giving it a try. What Horno lacks is the happy hour, but the food is very good. Maybe better than Il Piatto was.


Trattoria al Mano was a sad case. It was great, but the owners did not seem committed to the area. Once they closed during the lockdown, I got the impression they never intended to reopen. The same people owned Lucky Goat, Bobcat Bite, and some rendition of the restaurant at what is now El Sendero as well, which all opened and closed very quickly. Bobcat Bite opened on the tail end of the Covid restrictions, seemed to do well, and closed within a few months. That after doing substantial renovations to the building.
