Thin and crispy to another level !!

Absolutely scrummy. Light and delicious. Don't be put off by the outside,a warm welcome and a real treat awaits you inside. Just had pizzas and a good glass of Montepulciano. Perfect.

We walked all over the North Beach area of San Francisco at 7 pm looking for a good place to eat. It should be noted that several places that had high ratings in the area were already closed for the day. We found Cinecitta on the web. It is Italian, has high ratings, and is open until late.

We confirmed based on other restaurant visits in North Beach that it is largely living off its reputation--Cinecitta is one of the EXCEPTIONS. We loved this restaurant so much we had three lunches and one dinner and wished we had more during our two weekends in San Francisco. Intimate and authentic, you feel like walking through the front door that... More

I had eaten here a year and a half ago w/ an old friend (enjoyed it immensely) so was very excited to take my wife. Cinecitta is small and tonight it was crowded, but there was one table for two ready for us. We split a perfectly made tomato and mushroom pizza. Very young and energetic staff that gave us... More

We arrived at an off hour and are glad we did. The place is tiny and if you have more than six in your party, there is only one table to seat you. Luckily we were able to be sat and ordered a variety of pizzas and appetizers. While there is no specific kid's menu, the owner was gracious enough... More

Cine Città is a true hidden gem in Norh Beach, San Francisco. Last night was the the fourth time I had dinner there. TheTrastevere pizza was unbelievable again as was the Ceasar salad with accents of lemon infused Italian anchovies. Romina, the owner, leaves no detail unturned: the pizza dough is pressed through a pasta maker, so it is truly... More

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 DIE FOR!). The prices... 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

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

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.
