Tommaso's is easily the Godfather of pizza parlours - great staff, a warm welcome, fab pizza and antipasto. Join the queue, get a glass of wine and prepare for the best pizza from a stone oven in SF. NB What you can't eat they'll put in a box :) Ate there twice in a week - second time we sat... More

Food was good, One salad and one small pizza is enough for a normal couple. It is a bit expensive. Book before you go else you sit in the middle of the restaurant and OMG you hear everybody talking. So if you need a calm romantic place think about somewhere else!

Hubby said, "Best lasagna I've ever eaten!" Son said, "Best pizza I've ever eaten." Daughter raved and raved about her fettucine with prawns. My homemade raviolis with our waitress's aunt's authentic pesto sauce was divine. The whole family waited on us, joked with us, made us feel like part of the family. We had a great time and will definitely... More

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
