Jose, the Italian-Argentinian owner of this local landmark, has dedicated himself to cooking chicken perfectly. Marinated in an ever-so-slightly tangy marinade and then grilled over heated rocks, not charcoal, the result is juicy and flavorful enough to keep the modest dining area crowded pretty much all the time. The chicken comes with a crisp green salad with Italian dressing, but you will also find homemade soups, usually lentil and split pea, as well as Italian sausage if you are craving a little red meat with your poultry. Try to get a table by the large picture windows for a great view of North Beach as you dig in. Please call to plan your visit.
I have been eating at Il Pollaio since first coming to San Francisco in 1990 - not only is the food consistantly excellent, the owner, his family and the other staff are always friendly and fun. It's a must for anyone visiting North Beach. Enjoy!
Do you like big hamburgers or chicken? Then you will love Il Pollaio. Best french fries in North Beach. I would recommend getting the Il Pollaio Hamburger and splitting it with someone. Try to get a window seat so you can people watch. Best time to go is noon on Saturday or a weekday afternoon. It's hard to get a seat at night.
The chicken is the reason to frequent Il Pollaio. Paired with a fresh mixed salad of romaine lettuce, cole slaw, and bean with bread and butter- it's one of my favorite eateries in the City. And the price is right!
Other items on the menu that are quite good are the italian sausage, hamburger, and cottage fries.
I highly recommend Il Pollaio!
