At 100 years of age, the historic bank at the corner of Grand Avenue and Linden Avenue in South San Francisco will once again find a new vibe as restaurateur John Akkaya uses his tried and true skills to create a new Italian Eatery; Andiamo in Banca (we go to the bank). This elegant restaurant and bar is to be added to the list of accomplished eateries owned by Akkaya which include Cafe Figaro in Burlingame and  Ristorante Don Giovanni in Mountain View. Both of these restaurants are destinations in their respective Cities and with Akkaya’s fine reputation we can expect the same with his new creation. Scheduled to open by the end of the year.Check out the menus linked on both restaurants to get an idea of what delectables we might expect to grace our City soon!

Also of note: A beer garden will also be coming to this historic building and will be located on the bottom floor. We will update with more information as it becomes available yet believe this new venture will also open before the years end.

{UPDATE 7.10.18 4:30p} The TAVERN (Craft Winds Tavern) which will be featuring 31 taps – local beer, some favorite German/Belgium beers,​ and 6 wines on tap and some of favorite ​local ​ciders! They are also working on a special bar menu with Andiamo. Stay tuned for more updates and visit them at ​Instagram: @craftwinds

{UPDATE 1.18.19} The TAVERN is not able to move forward in this location due to size constraints. Should they choose another location we will update info}

{UPDATE 1.24.19} The Grand opening for Andiamo In Banca has been postponed. It had been scheduled for this weekend.
