Great pizza! We ate here at least 3 separate occasions during our trip. I tried almost all of their slices but the pepperoni was my favourite. I crave it now. The inside has a cool retro/vintage vibe.

We actually ordered twice from here! The pizza was fresh, and just delicious. Given SF prices it was affordable. Wish there were everywhere!

This is a solid pizza place, no frills but super good especially the corners. There's a pesto one that's so good! You will not be disappointed!

Nice and unique slice pizzeria at the heart of Little Italy. There are not too many sitting places, prepare to stand if you eat at the restaurant. Delicious pizza.

Enjoyed cheese pizza and garlic clam pizza. For a quick service restaurant, I was surprised how attentive and considerate staff were, especially ensuring I had fresh pizza and a great experience. Thank you!
