San Francisco & Lunch at Caffe DeLucchi

Caffe Delucchi San Francisco

Hello dear readers! As you may have noticed, I've been on a bit of a hiatus since spending the holidays back home. I'm still out west, but I wanted to show you what I've been up to in San Francisco! The other day, we took an epic urban hike around the gorgeous city I call home.

To start, we walked up the steps that lead to Coit Tower, which were filled with amazing views of the bay and great topiary/from the front yards of the houses along the trail.

We also met this cute little black and white cat - Mister Jacks! He was super friendly and literally jumped up and into my arms! We wanted to keep him.

To refuel after our urban hike, we stopped at the adorable Caffe DeLucchi in the nearby North Beach. Caffe DeLucchi is a classic Italian restaurant with outdoor seating and a scrumptious menu.

We started with the original caesar salad, with anchovies on top. It was entirely fresh, crisp, and delicious.

I ordered the rigatoni bolonese, which was cooked perfectly - not too soft, not too tough. This dish really hit the spot!

Here is the fresh snapper sandwich, with parmesan encrusted fresh snapper filet, housemade caper aioli, lettuce, and tomato on a soft ciabatta roll. You don't see snapper too often on the East Coast, so it was a treat coming back home and seeing this one on the menu.

I feel so incredibly lucky to go home to San Francisco, a city filled with breathtaking views and drool-worthy feasts. It's important to experience everything your city has to offer and I'm making more of an effort every year to do so, both in Boston and SF!
