Looking for Houndworthy gnocchi in the City

So my latest thing has been making my own gnocchi from scratch...a process far more gordian than I anticipated. Seems like one of those things that requires a great deal of practice and/or an Italian grandparent.
I'd love to sample some gnocchi in San Francisco that the learned and discerning hounds have found superlative...to see what I'm really shooting for, you know?
I like the simple gnocci with gorgonzola sauce at Mangia Tutti, on Clay just above Montgomery in the financial district.
Zuni usually has a delicious ricotta gnocchi on their menu. Very tender and slathered in butter. I think that technically their version should be call ravioli gnudi.
In my own gnocchi-making endeavors I have found that baking the potatoes, rather than boiling gets me better results.
