Ristorante Ideale information
Other North Beach restaurants fake Italian accents, but this trattoria has Italians in the kitchen, on the floor and at the table. Roman chef/owner Maurizio Bruschi serves authentic, al dente bucatini ammatriciana (tube pasta with tomato-pecorino sauce and house-cured pancetta) and ravioli and gnocchi handmade in-house ('of course!'). Ask Tuscan staff to recommend well-priced wine and everyone goes home happy.
