Brindisi Cucina di Mare

San Francisco
$$$$

Tucked in the international culinary heaven that is Belden Place alley, Brindisi is named an Italian province known for its fresh seafood. The signature dish here is linguini allo scrigno, which bathes clams, mussels, tiger shrimp and calamari in a spicy tomato sauce over homemade pasta. You can’t go wrong with any of Brindisi’s seafood entrees, which can be enjoyed on the patio for extra European flair, but the oyster happy hour and free bread with pesto sauce are also worth a trip.
