Nob Hill Café
Cost alone makes the Nob Hill Café an attractive option in the otherwise wallet stretching neighborhood. For less than $15 a plate, customers can get a range of north Italian, homemade pasta dishes, such as linguine alla vongole, penne bettola, and crowd favorite gnocchi bolognese. The menu also has several pizza options, as well as entrees like petrale alla mugnaia, local sole with lemon, butter, and white wine. Located just few blocks from the historical Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels, the restaurant is split into two dining rooms adorned with colorful paintings by local artists.
