North Beach is the Italian sector of San Francisco and is home to many fine Italian restaurants. It also has some good dentists but most of the people who work in the restaurants and need dental implants North Beach SF head off down south to the financial district to see us.

Why? Because we have a stellar reputation when it comes to dental implants North Beach SF, and everywhere else in the Bay Area too for that matter.

Of course, you might expect us to toot our own horn a bit, but the simple fact is that our doctor, Dr Alex Rabinovich, is one of the leading experts in the field of dental implants, not just in the US but in the rest of the world as well. He is in great demand to speak at dental conventions and has written many white papers on the subject. This is why so many North Beach people recommend him to their friends.

In turn, we love Italian food and we are happy to recommend some of our favorite places in North Beach.


For pizza, Tony’s Pizza Napoletano on Stockton Street takes a lot of beating. Tony Gemignani is an absolute gem when it comes to pizza and his restaurant is hugely popular – so much so that you can expect to wait for a table if you haven’t booked.

Da Flora on Columbus Avenue is a smaller and more intimate venue and its menu is Venetian inspired. The focaccia is superb. Here you will also find sweet potato gnocchi in a sherry cream with bacon which is a very rich dish. Occasionally, just to surprize you, they add in a few Hungarian dishes as well. This is another where you need to book.


If seafood is your “thing” then Sotto Mare on Green Street is the place to visit and serves oysters, crab Louie, linguine with clams, and the famous cioppino which was invented by the local fisherman in the late 1800’s. Basically, it was made up of whatever they had left over from the day’s catch, and was very often shrimp, crab, clams, and other fish, and then they added tomatoes, onions, and garlic, and cooked it all up in olive oil and wine with added herbs. Truly delicious.

Molinari Delicatessen is on Columbus Avenue and has people queuing up all day for their sandwiches, including the Renzo special on focaccia.

For home-made pasta, Italian Homemade Company, also on Columbus Avenue, produces tortellini in lasagne and bolognese, and also serves piadine which is a sandwich made with warm flatbread. They do a classic one with stracchino cheese, prosciutto, and arugula.

Those are just some of our favorites. Don’t forget though, that when you need dental implants North Beach SF, the place to be is in the financial district. We will ensure that you really have something to smile about in addition to all that delicious Italian food.
