Backpacking through the Bay Area offers a chance to savor traditional European cuisine. First stop is the classic French menu at L’Ardoise Bistro, a dreamy, neighborhood spot tucked away on a tree-lined street in San Francisco. Then, imagine a villa courtyard in Central Italy as you step into the greenery-draped trellises and taste the family recipes at Della Santina Trattoria in Sonoma. Finally, savor the cuisine of Piemonte and Liguria in the warmly lit, contemporary-styled dining room of Perbacco in San Francisco.
