Are there any (quality food) casual places to eat within walking distance to this comedy club? North beach is ok. So much in North Beach is touristy and not good food generally.

    Tony's Pizza Napoletana about 1/3 mile.

      Sotto Mare for Italian/Seafood would seem like a fit.

        Albona (Istrian), on Francisco between Mason and Taylor, is a charming, unique, small restaurant with a very different cuisine with bold flavors.

          L'Osteria Del Forno is a couple of blocks away and isn't touristy. It's quite small and homey.

            I enjoy La Trappe, a Belgian gastropub. http://latrappecafe.com/ It's at Greenwich and Mason.

            I also agree with Albona.

              L'Osteria Del Forno is a good choice, but you'll have to be prepared to wait. Oven-based foods: pizzas, roasted meats, roasted veggies and the like. Simple menu. One of my favorites. Once upon a time it was one of the Chron's bargain bites. Prices have crept up a bit, but it's still a bargain for the quality.

              Albona seems to fly under the radar, but locals love it. Very good. Istrian food (that's the tiny piece of Italy east of the Veneto but not quite Croatia). Not quite like anything else you're likely to stumble on.

              You won't regret either one.

              i'm told Calzone is ok. Never eaten there, but every time Ive walked by it's populated by tourists. Largely Euro-tourists. Never eaten there, but you might want to look into it.

              Avoid: Steps of Rome. Stinking Rose, Delucci, Panta Rei, Rose Pistola.

              Cinecitta does interesting Roman-style pizza. I like it. Others feel, well, otherwise.

              Some folks really, really like Tommaso for pizza. I think it's third rate at best. YMMV.

                Thanks all, This is why I always ask when I have a question. I knew of some of these places, but new ones are always nice. I think we will hit the Trappe since we are going with 23 year nephew and he loves beer. This place is new to us since we come from the East Bay .We love Albonia, but not the right "audience".
