This lively North Beach spot is not for the faint of heart or stomach. Inside, the music is deafening and the abrupt wait staff have yet to master the art of ingratiating American customer service. Vegetarians would be horrified by the mixed grill—sweetbreads, sausages, blood sausages, entrails and grilled meats galore—but carnivores will rejoice in the whopping big short ribs and filets. Everyone’s favorite is the photogenic, 1.5-pound, flank steak that’s just waiting to be Instagrammed.
