Unique pizza

I've never had Roman pizza before and wasn't sure what to expect The crust is very thin and crisp, and there isn't much cheese so it is very different from what Americans are use to. I had the speck and arugula, which was insanely good, and my husband and the pesto with breaded eggplant pizza (TO... read more

We recently went to San Francisco and took a tour of the city. On the tour that we took, they took us here. I was able to get my picture with the owner, Ms. Romina Jackson. She is a wonderful cook. The pasta we had there was AWESOME. The pizza was also good. In my opinion\, this is a five... More

Delicious sauce, everything fresh/homemade and made to order so not the place to go if you are looking for a quick slice of pizza. Pizza comes in 1 size: square about 9 inch by 9 inch. SUPER thin, nearly as thin as a tortilla or uncooked pie crust. Different but once you try it I guarantee you'll order more. NOTE:... More

We visited this place on the tastes of the city tour around north beach and little Italy. The owner Romina was very friendly and hospitable and you could tell she takes pride in her food and her restaurant. We had some antipasto featuring Romina's home made fresh bread which was great then a thin and crispy margarita pizza sooo yummy.... More

When we visited this establishment is was basically empty, we chose a table and then were asked to sit in a corner. We ordered a meal, the waitress seemed annoyed we were there, never checked on us, to ensure meal was ok, if we needed more drinks or anything. I would avoid this place.

Tiny spot, easy to overlook, but don't if you are looking for authentic thin crusted Italian pizza. I've eaten lots of pizza in Italy and this is very close to what you would eat there. Reasonably priced. It is hot inside, so eat outside if you are able. In my book this is much more authentic and better tasting that... More

Honestly, that pizza was absolutely delicious. I kept eating more and more! But overall the place is very small and modest-looking.

We stopped there for a glass off wine while waiting to see Beach Blanket Babylon. Our wine selection was outstanding, but... I asked if they had desert - had Grandma's Cake. It's a lemon type pie/cake. I don't like lemon pie/cake for the most part - but this melted in my mouth. It was rich, so the serving size was... More

This was the perfect place for my family to eat in Little Italy. Friendly, authentic, not too expensive, and delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about the pizzas that my husband and I ordered and the pasta that my kids ordered. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is small-- so you may have to wait for a table--... More

Thin crust, amazing sauce, bar none the best Margarita Pizza I have ever had. 4 of us shared two of them at the end of the Taste walking tour. We would have stayed and bought more but we had been walking and tasting for 3 hours. We will go back!!

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
