San Francisco, CA 94114

Francesco d’Ippolito dreamed of creating Poesia when he was a young boy and took his first job making cappuccino at a neighbor’s cafe. Decades later, floating on the Mediterranean Sea in Calabria one Summer with a friend, he began systematically, step-by-step to make his dream a reality. What would it take to bring the magic of the Italian coast to San Francisco? The warmth of the Italian kitchen, the fresh flavors, and the light-hearted air? Since 2008, San Francisco is home to Poesia. Nestled in the vibrant and colorful neighborhood of the Castro, Poesia Restaurant, is a dream come true.
