So in love with the food here. The Mac and cheese is the best we’ve ever had. And the sausage and honey pizza was to die for

Visited this place while we were exploring SF. The guy in the pizza shop was pleasant and helped us with.a few questions about the pizza's - like what's a white/red pizza (random things coming from an Englishman I guess). Anyway, we enjoyed the mother of...all pizza's - it was definitely one of the best I've had in a long time. The wife doesn't normally like pizza but ate tons of it. We eneded up having to get a doggie box for the last couple of slices it was too good to waste. The guy in there then continued to give us advise on where to visit and what to see nearby whcih we took his advise and had a cracking day in the park before retiring to the pub with our aching feet ! Well worth a visit.More

I stayed in Hayes Valley for three weeks and tried most of Baiano's pizzas each night. My favorite was their smoky pepperoni pizza! Yummelicious! The Hawaiian pizza was my second favorite. I recommend trying the Spicy veggie and

Stumbled upon Baiano’s, a pizzeria on 9th Ave. in San Francisco, Saturday after Thanksgiving Day, when food was least on our minds and a round of dough with tomato and cheese sounded like the perfect antidote. The sign on the window announcing application for new...ownership should have tipped us off, but I was committed to having pizza that day, period, so we ventured in, prepared to be surprised. The renowned bakery across the street promised topnotch pies that boosted your social conscience because it is worker-owned, but it doesn’t serve vino, so we passed them today. We crossed over to Baiano’s. Could we have arugula dressed with Caesar (about $11) instead of romaine that has caused death and illness throughout the nation due to E. coli infection? Sure, said Matt, the front guy, who recommended the Chianti, that turned out to be a bust. He replaced it with my choice, a Pinot Noir, that was drinkable. My Margherita (about $20 for medium) was thin as I requested and had a few blisters for an OK meal. M’s rigatoni with spicy sausage (around $15) looked more like ziti or penne to us who have criss-crossed The Boot, but he liked the generous portion and the abundance of meat. We didn’t expect to be dazzled, appropriately. The coup de grace was the announcement that they didn’t have WiFi and would appreciate cash. M had to look up the closest branch of our bank, happily one was around the corner. Our tab came up to $48.50 before tip. Should have gone to the 50-year-old pizzeria up the road, we thought. But Matt was nice, though he had no info on the reason for the restaurant’s name. Hope the restaurant fixes its flaws and enjoys a long life like the institution nearby.More

After a long day of running around and sight seeing we were hungry and wanting to eat somewhere close to our hotel. As we rounded the corner to our hotel we walked smack dab into this neighborhood spot. Keeping in mind how busy this place...was and there were only 2 employees the service was really good. So was the food. A bitm pricy but where in San Fransisco isn't.More

This little tiny pizza point on Gough Street in San Francisco is a great little spot for a quick bite. With only a few tables, it is easy to get a slice a pizza on the go. As I sat there eating the amazing calzone...that I ordered, I noticed a massive influx of students that come by on their lunch break to get a slice of pizza. This is definitely when they get their rush. There must be a nearby school with an open campus policy, because within the course of 30-40 minutes, probably 50-60 students came in and left. So, if you’re coming to this place for lunch, come a little before noon, or after 1:00 p.m. You will miss the influx of the crowd and will probably have a place to sit. I highly recommend this place for good hot pizza!More

Stopped here for dinner before a reading at Green Apple Books. Friendly folks and a good location - convenient to Green Apple and everything else on 9th Ave, and good people watching - so it pains me to report that the pizza is only so-so....Crust was mediocre and there was a hint of tomato paste in the sauce. Pizza calories are precious, so I'd advise spending them elsewhere. Speaking of spending, dinner for two was $72, exclusive of tip.More

Really good food and excellent service. The gluten free pizza base was one of the best I have had, just like a thin and crispy - didn't feel I was missing out at all. Only down side was that it only comes in a medium...size (which means I have breakfast for tomorrow!). Everyone else in the party enjoyed their food as well. Be sure not to miss the half price bottle of wine Wednesday special! Also very good value as far as San Francisco restaurant prices go!More

I have been here twice. Both times trying their pizzas. Friendly and great pizza slices. Crust is a bit chewy and crunchy. Perfect! Toppings are on point. Very delicious!

There is a good choice of pizza, including for vegetarians, with a variety of sizes. Three of us nearly got through 3 12 inch pizzas (all different, all veggie, not vegan). Everyone was happy. There was some great apple juice which I had to drink...out of a jam jar which was quite fun.Is this a California thing? The service was really pleasant - helpful, cheerful and not too intrusive. All does take away.More
