One of Shkoder’s most beloved restaurants, San Francisco, owned by the Shqau family, brings over 20 years of restaurateur experience, acquired in the greater San Francisco area, to their native city. Serving traditional Albanian and Italian infused American dishes, in a warm and friendly atmosphere, while providing professional and unparalleled service since their opening in 2011, the picturesque location in the heart of this 2400 year old hamlet has made San Francisco a reference point for many tourists visiting the city.

We welcome you to our restaurant, where the tradition of the Shkodrane hospitality, accompanied with the classic atmosphere of our establishment invites you to enjoy our specialties.


“The American Miracle”

“The San Francisco Restaurant, situated at the heart of the Shkodra pedestrian area i,s the place to be as far as regards energy replenishment and top quality service. Situated on the premises of a previously bourgeois villa and refurbished with great style to respect its ancestry, it makes the perfect food pit stop. I tried the baked white cheese and lettuce assorted salad and to finish the Smoked Trout. Chef Nikolin, the owner of the establishment, not only exceed my culinary expectations but offered aperitifs and smoked chicken beans on the house. A truly exquisite hospitality and as said top quality service. Don’t shy away from the after meal coffee, made standing true to the Italian espresso tradition.”
