About Rose Pistola
Rose Pistola opened in 1996 to critical acclaim, including the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in America. Named for Rose ‘Pistola’ Evangelista, a neighborhood barkeep, cook and all around character, the restaurant has evolved in to a North Beach institution. Our food has always been inspired by the Northern Coast of Italy and sourced from local fishermen, farmers and ranchers.
Rose Pistola offers free live music four nights a week, featuring the very best local musicians, who range in style from Swing, Latin, Rag and Contemporary through Classic Jazz. Our musicians are the best in the area and love playing for a crowd in the bar, and are also available to be booked for private parties.
We offer an excellent wine list that is focused on small producers from throughout Italy and California. The bar boasts a substantial collection of Grappas, Italian Liqueurs and Aperitifs, and offers original cocktails that change seasonally. Join us for local and innovative Italian food and a festive time in bustling North Beach for your next group dining experience to remember!
Rose Pistola is perfect for almost any type of event. Seating capacity ranges from banquette tables for up to 16, to a full restaurant buy-out for up to 120 seated or 200 for standing cocktails. Our alcove seats up to 26.
