A neighborhood favorite for tasty, reasonably priced pizzas & pastas. Staff is both hip and friendly. Calzone's is part trattoria, part osteria with creative food, sleek European ambiance, moderate prices and lots of fun! Large open windows overlooking the street makes for exquisite people watching. And in the evenings, the warm glow of red drop lights set the mood while you dine on signature dishes.

Long after the other restaurants on the North Beach "strip" have closed for the night, the bar at Calzone's is still serving (until 1:00 am). With it's collection of miniature liquor bottles and a larger than life black and white photograph of Dean Martin the bar has a cozy atmosphere and big windows overlooking the street offering the perfect venue for hanging out in the heart of North Beach.
