I grew up north of San Francisco and always have had fond memories of going down to "The City" for dinners. Now I'm taking my own kids to dinner in San Francisco...and when we're in town we always try to make a trip to Tommaso's. Get the Spinach Pizza...it looks weird, sounds weird, but take my word for it...it is... More

Great service and food. Go early or you wait out the door. Fresh, tasty, and plentiful. Will go back.

Great family Italian pizza/pasta restaurant off the beaten path in San Francisco. Food was outstanding - we had pizza, pasta, and veal on our visit and all were wonderful. It's a very small restaurant, and they don't take reservations, so we had to wait on a busy night, but it was worth the wait! Highly recommend this place!

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
