Mountain View, CA
I still don't know who are the guys running that restaurant., but it is the place to go. From major events, like weddings, to just a good dinnner with a friend. The atmosphere in the reestaurant is very authentic to italian cuisine. There are 4 brothers who always argue, but it is always a pleasent night for the guests. I felt like a personal guest in their home. The food is amazing, from delicate veal to melt in the mouth pasta. For seafood lover Crab Ciopino, THE BEST IN BAY AREA. I have never seen anyone finish a bowl of Ciopino there, so if you do, let me know.
Flipper's, ah, so many memories. I have been comming there since my freshmann year of college. Back then, coffee was a donkey piss, but kept me awake. And, boys..... Ah, those international boys. NOW, Flipper's is the place to go to enjoy a perfect lunch, or desert. You will spend no more then 11 $ and you will enjoy every cent of it. Gourmet burgers are made to order with an excuisite touch of every culture you can immagine. I always go for Compegagehn burger with curly fries and ranch dressinng. Besides the greatHayes Valley location, Flippers offers to transfer you to any location you want with their food.
No matter what people say, shoes are the girls best friend in San Francisco. I am a shoe guru in this town and I have to tell you if you want to start your shoe collection or just get a pair of loefers , COME TO PAOLO. Yes, ladies , our cinderella dreams come true in that store. On a good day, As you enter a spacious room fool of shoes,designer himself will sit you down and serve you on his knees. At Paolo you get the latest styles at reasonable prices. AND..... You are always, and I mean always get the best deals if you just smile to Paolo. Men get evenn better service. While your girlfriend is distracted by shoes, boys get to hang out on the opposite side of the store checking out Paolo's collections which he himself wears and demonstrates. The quality is optimal.
