“Great New York-style pizza by the slice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Being a big New York-style pizza fan I heard this is the place to visit in San Francisco. We stopped by late one evening for dinner at it was indeed great. Pizza was very good, hot, dough was thin, crispy, and tasty. It was everything one could wish from a pizza. I highly recommend it. By the way, I stopped by again few days later and the experience was the same. I had cheese and pepperoni pizzas.

“My favorite pizza-by-the-slice for more than a decade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Back in the '90's Marcello's introduced me to a new taste delight: pesto-mushroom pizza. MOUTHWATERING! I prefer their thin-crust offerings. If you are buying by the slice, I recommend choosing from a pie which has just emerged fresh from the oven. They compost & recycle and offer "Eco Friendly" carryout boxes. Right across the street from Castro Theater. Their quick service makes them a great choice for some satisfying pizza before a movie.

“Great NY Style Pizza in the Castro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

If you're a big fan of New York style thin crust pizza, this is the place to go to. The crust is super thin and crispy and the toppings are just right. It's a no frills place, but the staff is friendly and efficient. This is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat for lunch, dinner or a late evening snack to recover from some alcoholic indulgences at the nearby bars. Love this place !

I would so rather have a slice here in the warm comfort of a kitchen that has always been and always will be.... I prefer to think of a previous owner from generations ago...that love of that slice will never go

I love the thin crust and the fresh toppings. This place is frequented by many young, rowdy drunks,
