Cotogna

The delight of Cotogna in SF remains on the tongue weeks later…

My friend and I had reserved the only spot available on a rainy Saturday at 4p which is a perfect time to enjoy a delicious meal in a rustic, Italian setting amidst multiple choices in San Francisco’s North Beach district. We shared each dish with a wine pairing suggested by the Sommelier. Our primi: the delicate  Fava bean sformato & pecorino romano fonduta The dish brought a tasty thrill to my palate along with a sip of a lovely Italian white wine:

I tried a few sips from the glass of my dining companion, the wonderful Sicilian red:

 

  • ETNA ROSSO, BENANTI “ROSS DI VERZELLA” 2013

    Region: Sicilia Grape: Nerello Mascalese & Cappucio

 

Next came the superbly delicious Bolognese followed by the Pesce Spade (Swordfish!  MMMM). Each of us also preferred a Sardinian red with these:

Topping it off with a hazelnut gelato and a sip of Vietti Moscato, we left entranced and vowed to return.

I hear they cater office parties.  Ha!  I wish I could afford that on my teacher’s salary!

While in North Beach, don’t hesitate for a minute to stop at Urban Sidewalk.  Fabulous clothing and accessories for women and men at very affordable prices hosted by Marcus, the fun and funny proprietor!
