It's a free attraction in SF's Marina District (9.1 miles). Walk along the gorgeous outdoor paths or around the lake, get a closer look at the detail of its design. Have a picnic or just spend time relaxing on the lawn.

One of the most picturesque spots in the city, and recently renovated. It's pure sightseeing as there really isn't anything to "do" precisely, but it is well worth a gander.

Italian Restaurant
“Pizza fans and wine lovers visit A16 to enjoy the flavors of Italy’s soulful south. This pizzeria shares a name with the highway of the two seas which runs across Italy from Napoli to Bari. The inspiration comes from the region, especially Campania. Executive Chef Nicolette Manescalchi oversees the menu, which features fresh pasta, house-butchered and house-cured meats and authentic Pizza Napolitana. Complementing the rustic fare, Wine Director Shelley Lindgren selects wines that highlight the indigenous grapes from Campania and nearby regions.”
