Two of my friends brought me a sampling of delicious foods on their journey from San Francisco to my apartment in New York City. The pizza was absolutely delicious, even though it needed to be heated in my microwave.

Really enjoyed stumbling across this place just off Castro Street. No frills but clean, efficient and great pizza. Just what you need when you are in a hurry and starving. The pizzas were perfectly cooked and of the right size! Enjoy.

The honey dijon chicken is great. It's served with fire roasted potatoes. We also tried the chicken Parmigiana served with capellini. We had a side of the Swiss Chard with white beans, and pancetta. Service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed everything but we felt...More

Smelled great walking by, so we tried it, and definitely don't regret it! The salads were huge and very fresh, the Jambalaya spicy enough to be almost like real Cajun, but the tortellini . . . astounding! I had the house tortellini with the white...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
