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.

My wife and I had lunch at A16 today. Our first visit. A mid-week lunch today was great. We split the salsiccia pizza (featuring a delicious fennel sausage) and a small carafe of an Italian white wine. This pizza is not made with pizza sauce, so it was brought separately for dipping or spooning on top. We had fun with... More

Many reviews had given us the opinion it was an upscale Wine Bar and restaurant. It for sure upscale pizza place and wine bar but it is not an upscale restaurant. That said, it is a very good restaurant but has a rather limited menu outside of its pizza (that looked wonderful). We were looking for non pizza food and... More

Some of the reviews I read after I made a reservation made me nervous. But our dinner was super in every way. We were seated on time, the staff was friendly and very attentive, and the food was memorable. Unless you're out for an intimate meal, I highly recommend sitting at the Chef's Bar.....it's right in front of the meal... More

You get fine dining prices and food but in a distinctive San Francisco Marina district style. We brought clients here and they all walked away happy, but make sure that your expectations are set at the right level lest you be disappointed. With one exception the food was excellent. You see below by what we mean by "somewhat funky." Needing... More

Very expensive. Service was very lacking. Sat at the chefs table...(counter watching the kitchen) which is usually a good spot. Server basically ignored me for 10 minted after I was seated. Was about to leave and a manager came over and took care of me. Food was not nearly as wonderful as in previous visits

On our last night in SF, we went to A16. What a disappointment. The decibel level made having a conversation next to impossible. But I guess that's a sign of a good/popular restaurant. So this must mean great food and/or great value. Wrong on both counts. Wines are seriously overpriced. The California Cab that we ordered was just plain awful.... More

The secret here is: despite catering to a posh audience, it really is not so pricey. The service was efficient and pleasant. Appetizers were fair values. Companions loved their lamb and steak entrees. The burrata was a pleasant, decadent surprise. The pizza, despite their own ovens, was soft and undercooked. I suspect it is not usually that way. We had... More
