Libreria Pino is an Italian bookstore in North Beach, San Francisco. Our mission is to promote Italian language through books, music, and film.

Our story
Libreria Pino began in 2011 as an online Italian bookstore based in San Francisco.  We started with a limited selection of titles featuring best sellers in Italy and popular children’s books.  Quickly our customers began asking for more selection and gave suggestions for new titles.  We now have a broad selection from Easy Readers to Dante; from Elena Ferrante to Luigi Pirandello and Gianni Rodari.  Welcome to our new site featuring English language books!
