Vincent Correnti understood the moment he stepped foot on the Union & Mason corner in 1984 that he was beginning the Correnti family heritage in North Beach. Today Trattoria Contadina is still crowded after 37 years and under the management of their third generation.
The motto of the restaurant which hangs at the front door states: Lascia i problemi alla porta. Buon appetito. It translates to "Leave your problems at the door. Enjoy your meal." So leave all your problems to enjoy the Negroni week with your girlfriends at Trattoria. You can taste the Negroni's youthful and bitter flavors of gin, Campari, vermouth, orange bitters, and orange twist. Pair it with some of their delicious pasta dishes or the local favorite gnocchi and meatballs. Seems like a perfect plan for a weekend hangout with your girlfriends!

Adriano Paganini, a chef, and restaurateur were raised near Milan by a mother who was a superb cook and a family of tailors who used their hands to make beautiful things. Most of the foods on the menu were inspired by the meals she cooked for her family.
The restaurant serves simple, straightforward (and downright savory) dishes like risotto, fresh pasta, crostini, antipasti, and verdure to their guests. You can also enjoy their finest biodynamic and organic wines from Northern California and Italy along with their world-class cocktails like Negroni from the bar. The Tailor's Son is like a love letter to Italy that is woven from a different cloth.
