What a fun dinner! I loved the elevated dinner party vibe and each and every dish was exploding with flavor. Wonderful to have a vegetarian spot to get excited about! We did the tasting menu which was SO much food- it could've fed four. The staff boxed up our leftovers making this a really great value. Hope this popup stays around!

Chef & co-owner, Mario and his delightful wife, Stephanie, have a knack for making you feel as if they are cooking and serving just for you at this super-reasonable North Beach nook offering robust Southern Italian fare reminiscent of his native Naples; whether you’ve snagged an outdoor table or are in the small, casual interior, it delivers a pasta fix. The menu changes daily to ensure freshness.

About the restaurant
At Chama Nativa we serve a Traditional Southern Brazilian Rodízio. Our Prix-Fixe Menu, includes two courses. It provides the opportunity to enjoy a variety of Prime Meats including beef, chicken, pork and lamb, which we season and carefully fire-roast to expose the natural flavors contained in the meats.

A meal begins with a trip to our gourmet salad bar, featuring an extensive selection of the freshest vegetables as well as a mix of some of the most flavorful composed salads and hot dishes. The main course, the highlight of the meal, will start when you flip your coaster-sized “chip” from the red side to the green side, signaling the meat cutters you are ready to be served.

Service was spotty. Meat tenderness and temperatures were inconsistent. Not bad we just thought it would be better.

Ever since my trip to Japan I’ve been on a hunt for the closest experience to it here in San Francisco. Yakiniku’s staff were just as welcoming and comforting and the meat quality was A1 from beginning to end. Highly recommend for anyone looking for the same experience!

About the restaurant
If you’ve ever enjoyed the 888 dining experience, you know it’s not like your average Bay Area Italian restaurant. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown San Carlos, 888 Ristorante Italiano brings authentic flavors of Italy to Laurel Street. 888 was created from a passion for Italian cuisine that’s deep-rooted in the Maddalena family. Owner Vince Maddalena and Chef Raul learned their craft through growing up in the restaurant industry. Specifically, Maddalena’s, owned by Vince’s dad for over 30 years in Palo Alto. When Vince’s dad closed shop, Vince knew he wanted to continue sharing his passion for food with the public. And so 888 was born! When it comes to cooking, we never take shortcuts. Almost all of our menu is made in-house and we keep things fresh by changing our dishes as seasons come and go. Enjoy our intimate dining experience with a significant other, family and friends or just let us know if you have a large group and we would be happy to accommodate. Your host, Vincenzo Maddalena, would like to welcome you to his restaurant for a unique dining experience of authentic Italian cuisine. Buon Appetito!
