Old Style Italian

Caesar's Restaurant

We were in San Francisco Sunday morning, and stopped for lunch on the corner of Powell & Bay Street, at an old style Italian restaurant, Caesar's. There were city notables framed on the wall, and there was a visit by a previous pope documented there as well. The restaurant has a history of over 50 years!

Mixed Green Salad

Dad began his meal with a Mixed Greens Salad which he said was BIG with the crunchy vegetables he likes.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

He then enjoyed some Spaghetti with Meat Sauce.


Meantime Collette & I had some Minestrone soup. This was totally tasty, and the hostess kept turning people away at the door as they only provide take-out Minestrone on weekdays!

Linguine with White Clam Sauce

I went on for some Linguine with Clams in White Sauce. There were no clams in the shell included, my preferred way, but the amount of clams was well balanced to the al dente linguine, and these were tender and sauced well.


Finding out that it was my Dad's 88th birthday, the staff surprised him with a song and a slice of birthday cheesecake with candle. Dad got his wish.

Your pictures -- the smoke from the birthday candle, the lemon-juice drop over the saganaki -- have been wonderful!
