San Francisco was already known for its Italian gourmet shops over a hundred years ago. Today, there are only three that have stood the test of time, and this one is the oldest. Their freshly made subs are prepared proudly by real Italians dressed in their white uniform like aprons over the counter. The gents are loud and direct, but welcoming in their reception of new customers. Molinari is more than just a place of work for them; it’s their life.
