This restaurant is a gem with genuine Italian fare cooked by a chef from Italy and served to us by a great server from Italy. The food is outstanding and the people are so very friendly and accommodating.
Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. The staff is great. The food is the freshest I have found in San Francisco. The price is commensurate with both the food and the service. I would bring a date here, I would bring my business companions here (which is what I did at this dinner), I would recommend it for any special occasion.
A fun place to have dinner. Everyone was friendly, the food delicious and the wine list reasonably priced.
Wonderful, classic Italian food in a friendly neighborhood spot
Very friendly. Food was wonderful. Had the ahi and pasta. Very helpful getting us a taxi as Uber and Lyft cannot drop,where we stayed.
Wonderful food. Would definitely go back again.
Not a fancy place somewhat rustic. Food was very good and highly recommend !!
Best Italian food we have had outside of Italy! Highly recommend it.
First time at Idéale. Grilled Octopus was good. However, the Tortelloni my wife ordered was bland and uneventful while the Spaghetti Carbonaras my teenage children each ordered were excessively salty. I generally like my meals on the salty side, but even I found it excessive when I tasted their food.
Service-wise, the gentleman busing tables appeared unhappy to be there and, thus, making our family uncomfortable. Our main waiter, who was generally professional, did exhibit visible annoyance towards the end when I asked if the coffee could be served along with our dessert; everyone in our table could sense his curt reply. It appeared he was covering far too many tables for just 1 person and even had to prepare the cappuccinos himself.
The general consensus as we finished our dinner is that there was a sense of arrogance coming from the staff.
Chef Maurizio continues to deliver great Roman food. This time , besides his delicious grilled Calamari we had his Scallops, just perfection. For main courses we enjoyed Pasta with Monkfish on a tomato sauce that was really good , we also had a perfectly grilled Rainbow trout. This is a great restaurant with nice staff and great food. A great part of the North Beach neighborhood in San Francisco.
My son’s favorite dinner whilst in San Francisco. My risotto was lovely and his Napolitana pizza-exquisite.
Ideale has been a neighborhood gem for over 20+ years. With the interruption of the pandemic, it seems they haven't gotten their rhythm back. Food consistency is not what it used to be.
I must have come on an off night since the carbonara was congealed and too salty. Have to try it again in a different day
LOVE coming to this restaurant! This was our first visit since COVID. The food was good, but different. I ordered the cioppino (formerly was a seafood stew). It was good, but I prefer the seafood stew. It mainly was mussels. A small piece of fish on top with a few clams. The lasagna was served like a pile of pasta and sauce, where as previously, it was served in an individual au gratin dish, with cheese and sauce galore. Service was top-notch and the tiramisu-OFF THE HOOK! I hope the changes in tbe food are only because of COVID and this is what makes sense for the restaurant, financially. I hope it goes back to the way it was.
Great place to eat in North Beach. Their pasta dishes are terrific, authentic! The bread was delicious. They were able to accommodate a small group. Will definitely go back.
Super fun atmosphere
Can’t wait to go back! Thank you for making our night perfect
Always a great meal! Great neighborhood spot for Italian food. Very friendly staff.
Delicious meal. Great service! Would definitely recommend this place
The food and service were both excellent. We shared the Salad Ideale with fava beans and goat cheese - very good. I had the Pork Saltimbocca which came with roasted potatoes and wilted spinach - the dish was prepared perfectly and was very tasty. My husband had the lasagna which he enjoyed. We did not have desert although they looked fantastic. Rather we had after dinner drinks. Oh - we started our meal with cocktails and had a glass of wine with dinner. Wine was good and reasonably priced. The service was very, very good . Forgot to mention the bread was excellent. We recommend and will come back again.
Best kept secret in North Beach. Great people great food. Can’t wait to get back.
This place is a favorite for authentic italian food
Wonderful meal!! We had some items from the menu and also enjoyed the specials of the day. Delicious food always and a great wine recommendation!
They were busy and 2 of us had the special yellowtail tune - it came cooked, but barely warm......not good
Fantastic. They make you feel like home.
Nice neighborhood italian food. More of a homemade feel and taste than I expected, some original food and decently attentive service. I with I lived closer.
Excellent food, friendly and attentive service, great recommendations for wine from a curated selection. Everything we ordered was superlative. It is tempting to drop by just for the appetizers and pastas every day. Highly recommend.
Ideale is Italia terapia (Italy therapy). They make a great caffe correcto (espresso with a dash of liquor, we love it with sambucca but you can have grappa). We have been so lucky to travel to Italy each year and this last year of course all travel plans were canceled for most people. Each time we go to Ideale we get that little fix of hearing the staff speak their language and they are always so gracious and let me throw down and practice my italian. It’s a great crew of people who work there. They take good care of us! The food is always delicious, the pasta, the pizza, the specials, and mains. You will find some nice bottles of wine as well. Great place, very recommended.
The restaurant week menu was a great value and delicious!
Four of us (two couples) had dinner "outside" Friday night....the place was lively, energetic and tables were perfectly spaced. My wife and I had cioppino and pasta...and one of our friend ordered zucchini julienne...which were good. Now comes the bad and odd...our other friend ordered flank steak w/truffle and mushrooms. The steak was rubbery and tasteless. He promptly told the waiter and asked for a side of pasta instead...after one bite my friend was choking on a 2" wire (likely from a wired brush)...the worst part of this was how the entire wait staff dealt with the situation including the mgr. Zero empathy. The Mgr even questioned where my friend found the wire! When the bill came his meal was still on it...we had to ask to have it removed. Coincidence there was a wire in his pasta? 🤔
The food was great, however the service left something to be desired
The lasagna is with hand made pasta and is spectacular!
Always a favorite for good italian! Highly recommend
True Italian cuisine, no one makes an authentic Roman Carbonara like chef Maurizio. Daily specials are always created from the freshest ingredients.
If you have missed your vacation to Italy, dining at Ideale is like being there for an evening. Best of the best!
The lasagna is my all-time favorite dish! They bake their own bread which could be a meal by itself with a reasonably priced glass of valpolicello. I plan to order delivery when I can't get to the restaurant in person.
Food is very good overall, and the service was attentive and efficient. We ate inside and felt very safe (lots of space and fresh air flowing), and the noise level was fine. Outdoor dining was also available and looked pleasant, though was a bit louder.
I’ve been here before a few times and loved it. This experience wasn’t great. Hoping it’s better next time :/
The food was sooooo delicious!! The service phenomenal. Can’t wait to go back!!
I love this spot on a fun busy block. Sat inside and got a table 25 mins before arriving was able to push it back 3 times with no issues. Got so much food and it was all authentic and delicious. There’s an extensive wine list but also a full bar even though there’s not a cocktail menu. Tip: Order the espresso martini then be throwed by how good it is
I have dined at Ideale at least 4 times in the last few years. I have always felt well taken care and the food had always been exceptionally good. I hope they continue to thrive.
Such a great meal under some very strange circumstances at Ideale. The staff did everything it could to give us a great experience. But with limited seating outdoors, we all had to just make the best of it. The food was great and the service was fantastic. These hard-working restaurant owners and staffs are really trying hard to deal with this situation and I’m grateful that the Ideale team did its best to make it memorable. The orecchiette was really good! My snapper was cooked perfectly. And the wine list was limited but very fair.
