SF Weekly's Description

Chic, whitewashed, high-ceilinged room in the Mission District, featuring the cuisine of Liguria, a region of Italy whose capital is the seacoast town of Genova. Farina Focaccia & Cucina Italiana's pastas are all house-made, and might include handkerchief pasta with pesto, and the pansotti in a creamy sauce with finely chopped nuts. The secondi could include filet mignon in a rich mushroom sauce, and carefully cooked tuna paired with burrata and heirloom tomatoes. Don't miss the extraordinary Italian desserts.

    Great cuisine and HUGE portions! “This pope’s daughter could eat a horse!” –Lucrezia Borgia

  • mayu-chan on 09/15/11

    Great date spot with great pastas, try their Pansotti Al Sugo Di Noci. Pricey? Yes, but when I'm not paying for it.....

  • Tammy C. on 08/17/10

    Try the award winning pesto!

  • Hugo B. on 11/13/12

    Handkerchief pasta with pesto and meat ravioli are incredible.

  • Amine K. on 10/13/12
