The Chinatown in San Francisco is the oldest in North America and one of “the largest Chinese communities outside Asia”. It was established in 1840s and it was highly influential and important in the culture and history of ethnic Chinese immigrants to North America and the USA. In addition the San Francisco Chinatown has been a home and starting point for thousands of immigrants from China. It is also a main tourist attraction with its restaurants and shops. The attractions there draw more visitors per year than the Golden Gate Bridge.

If you want to have a cup of very nice coffee you can always visit the Italian neighbourhood of San Francisco. North Beach is a district in the northeast of San Francisco neighbouring with the Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown. It is accepted as the Little Italy of San Francisco because there is a majority of Italian Americans there. This is the nightlife district of the city. The APA (American Planning Association) defined North Beach as one of top 10 ‘Great Neighbourhoods in USA’.

“Enoteca Ottomista strikes a balance of being both a great wine bar and restaurant with its delicious rustic Italian cuisine, complimented by an expansive wines list that specializes in Italian varietals.

From the warm and rustic dining area that surrounds the rich wooden bar, to the wrought iron vintage tables and chairs in the heated front patio, the design completes the whole experience. The ambiance is reminiscent of a charming little restaurant somewhere in the Italian Tuscan countryside. Highlights from my last visit include the special pizza del giorno, the beet frisee salad with toasted sunflower seeds and pistachios, and the salumi plate.”

Although it is considered as one of the windiest parts of San Francisco, the Alamo Square is one of the most visited and most photographed ones. The row of Victorian houses known also as Six sisters or Painted ladies show the visitors how the city looked like at the end of 19th century. And the view is unbelievable, indeed. The Square is located in the Western addition which is very often called Alamo Square neighbourhood. This is the part of San Francisco with the 2nd largest concentration of large homes.
