Top Italian Restaurants in San Francisco (and surroundings)

San Francisco doesn't follow fashion. It dictates it. Just look at the wave of organic products, of natural wines, and the long-established success of orange wines.  The most European city in the United States offers extraordinary Italian restaurants, ones that combine sophisticated yet pure cucina along with memorable wine lists. It's all the byproduct of a sensibility unique in the nation. Even the pizza is exceptional - light, well-made, crisp.
