Tommaso's is an iconic restaurant in San Francisco. It's been family-owned for something like 80 years and someone told me it was owned by a relative of the Coppola clan. It embodies the immigrant, Italian experience that made North Beach what it is. History aside, the food is topnotch. It's classic Italian food with generous portions. This restaurant is meant...

A good restaurant is a combination of good food, service, and ambiance. Tomasso's has average food, rushed service, and awful ambiance. It was very awkward to be seated at a communal table. The table had spots for 16 people and our party of 4 got seated at the table with several other parties. It was very awkward to have no... More

Went for dinner around 9pm. The restaurant was full which is a good sign. Had to wait around 20/30min for a table, but time flies when you can chat and drink a glass of wine while waiting. Probably because we are not US citizens and we are not used to such huge pizzas, we asked for two (one was enough).... More

This is our FAVORITE restaurant in San Fran! We are from Chicago (and we know pizza), and Tommaso's is the absolute best pizza we have EVER had! If you are traveling to San Fran, you don't want to miss Tommaso's!

After spending a year in Italy I thought I would never be able to find food as delicious here in the United States. But then I found Tommasos's! This restaurant is just as good if not BETTER!! I had the lasagna which was amazing and the mushroom pizza. It was unbelievable.The wood fire brick oven warms the place up with... More

This is one of the oldest restaurants in SF (1935) and has been owned by the same family (Crotti) for the past 40 years. There are many reasons a place like this stays in business, but the #1 is CONSISTENCY. Places open and close every day in the Bay Area but a select few stand the test of time -... More

We were on a food tour of north beach (Avital Food Tour - amazing!) and Tomasso's was one of the restaurant stops. Lucky for us! We enjoyed 2 slices of pizza - both very delicious, but one in particular (Spinach Parmesan) was so ridiculously scrumptious that we didn't want to eat anything else after it so we could keep the...

I have visited San Francisco several times before, and was told to try Tommaso's. Never had the opportunity to dine there until now. We shared a pizza and found it was very good, but personally speaking , we thought the entrees of the veal and seafood to be just great. As for the atmosphere, it felt like what we might... More

Food was not remarkable in any way - very bland, average at best. Service ranged from rude (hostess) to indifferent (waitress). Atmosphere was vey noisy. Will not return - to many other options nearby.
