“Wow, 3 Different Pizza Ovens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Tony's was our first restaurant we tried on our last visit to San Francisco. We got there around 2:00 PM on a Saturday and the place was crowded, but fortunately we were seated immediately. For a "pizza place" the wine list is impressive and compliments the menu well. We selected a bottle of the house tempranillo and liked the light fruit flavor & dryness. For our main course we selected the Barcelona pizza that comes topped with mozzarella, smoked paprika chorizo tomato sauce, spanish ham & scrambled eggs. It was a nice combination of mild flavors, spice from the chorizo and low acid from the tomatoes. As a no charge "coperto" a nice assortment of breads and excellent olive oils accompanied the meal. We also had the spinach salad which was quite good. The most unusual aspect of Tony's are the 3 pizza different style of pizza ovens. They have a wood fired one that cooks at 900 degrees. We were seated right by that oven and watched the chef make our pizza. Most of the pizza are cooked in this oven. There is a coal fired oven that cooks at 1000 degrees. Finally there is an electric oven that cooks at 700. I understand that the calzones are also top notch. This is a place I would definitely return to as I saw many other great entries pass by our table.

“Just superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Really great service and really fabulous food. The pizzas we had were fabulous. Warning though- if you order the garlic bread you need to have a huge appetite! It is totally delicious but it would easily feed 4 to 6 people! Will definitely go back when I'm back in San fran.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Tony's was our last restaurant to enjoy dinner before leaving San Francisco. We walked down from the flat we were staying in and arrived at the restaurant in the middle of the dinner rush. The hostess said the wait was about an hour and we asked about a table outside. She told us we could be seated immediately outside, but the only drawback was the above heater was on the "fritz". We took a chance and we were very happy there! Wine...delicious.....Pizza...Amazing, Calamari....wonderful......service...... impeccable.

“Don't miss the Detroit Pizza!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The best pizza! The Detroit is sheet pizza and little backwards with sauce over the cheese, but we couldn't resist trying it out. It was awesome! Great service too. Waitress was very informative.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Tony's is a great pizza place. They have an amazing selection of types of pizzas and types of crusts. It's not the absolute best pizza I've ever had, but pretty close! We ordered a pizza that had artichokes and some sort of a cream sauce with lemon juice squirted on top. It was fantastic! I highly recommend Tony's!
