Description: A16 is a restaurant and wine bar bringing the delicious and hospitable traditions of lively Campania to San Francisco. The chic, rustic/modernist venue is named after the motorway that transverses the South of Italy. The restaurant features wood oven-fired Neapolitan Pizza and other specialties of Campania such as Maccaronara with ragu napoletana and house-made ricotta salata. The wine bar serves 40 wines by the glass and half bottle carafe. The list is 60 percent Italian, mostly from the South, and the other 40 percent is New World, celebrating premiere Italian varietals grown in California along with many California wines.

A16 is a good restaurant. You'll want to have reservations or expect a long wait. Dining room is between moderately and very noisy depending on the crowd. We were in with a group of four and ordered a number of appetizers and a couple of main courses. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked and delicious, as was the porchetta. Out... More

I think the key to enjoying this restaurant is to have reservations and/or come on an off-time since it is very popular and hard to get into. I've been here a few times, and have friends that dine here on a weekly basis. The food has been excellent every time, and my guests (who love good food) enjoyed it very... More

We were walk-ins from out of town on a Sunday night. We should have ordered the beautiful looking pizza but we went for main courses. They weren't very good; my husband's lamb chops were over-cooked. The service was sparse and a little rude.

We were really excited to be at A16 but they fell a lil' short with the service. We were there fro their first christmas eve set menu. We had a great table, but the food was a lil' fast coming out to the table causing us to ask our (friendly and helpful) server to slow things down. Unfortunetly the communication... More

While visiting our kids/grand kids in Palo Alto, we hopped in the car and drove to San Francisco for some beach-time for the dogs, a visit to the Cable Car Museum and lunch at A 16. And what a lunch it was! Four of the six of us had sour while two of us had salads. Everyone agreed that both... More

Had a good pizza here, with a decent glass of wine. But be careful if you let the waiting staff choose your wine - it will probably end up being one of their most expensive!

Friday night with a large convention in town and this restaurant was hopping (but I suspect that is not out of their norm). Service was excellent and the wine list was extensive and interesting but what disappointed was the food itself. At a table of 7 appetizer pizza and charcuterie plate were good but not outstanding. Pastas for 4 people... More

I've eaten here before but long before my Trip Advisor days! This is always an excellent experience. The pizzas are fantastic and they give you pizza scissors to cut your own pizza at your table. The half plates of pasta are a great option for anyone that doesn't want a huge plate of pasta. the wine list is always amazing.... More

I happened upon A16 just as the lunch hour was ending. I was warmly welcomed (no one looking at their watch rolling their eyes, as can happen) and sat at the comfy bar. The winelist was crazy extensive but the bartender was knowledgeable. This pizza was a-ma-zing... And I was given Pizza scissors, for god's sake. (It is hard for... More

Very upbeat friendly place. Try the beet salad. It is best ever. Pricey but worth it. Not a tourist place.
