Poesia, located in the Castro district, is known as not only an Italian restaurant, but also as a full bar and poetry lounge.

These pastas come accompanied by the freshest vegetables of the season. There are plenty of wine and cocktail selections to pair any of the delectable dishes on the menu. With these ingredients for a great meal, Poesia brings traditional Italian cuisine as well as true poetry to the Castro district of San Francisco.
