Amazing pizza. We ordered scaliano. Unfortunately we had to walk in to get the pizza as no one picked up our 8phone calls. This is the second time our calls were not taken. Recommend going but don’t expect to be able to get through on...the phone with ease.More

This is an absolute hidden gem and should be in the SF Top 10. Its got a magic atmosphere, super friendly owners, great beer and most importantly, brilliant thin crust pizza. It's places like this that make travel writing all worth it. A little jewel...in Russian HillMore

This is a small, no thrills pizzeria. What it lacks in décor it makes up with great tasting and mouth-watering pizza. I like it when you can see the Chef preparing the food. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and make you feel at...home. The pizza is reasonably priced and exceptional value for money. The pizzas are awesome. The best pizza base I’ve tasted on a pizza. Better than in Rome! You have to check this place out. It is easy to get to. Just catch the Powell Hyde cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s just a few blocks from the Lombard Street stop. Note to check out the Clipper cards for transportation in San Francisco. It works out much cheaper. We had a large pizza. Half and half and it comfortably fed 4 adults with healthy appetites. Plus, beer and soft drinks for $50. Bargain!More

Good pizza, little place there’s like 3-4 tables. Take out mostly but you can sit if there’s not too much people. Nothing fancy. We recommend!!

Za pizza was recommended to me last year when I visited SF for the first time - I was told by a colleague it was the best pizza on earth and it did not disappoint! We returned to SF for one night last week and...once again it was fabulous - seriously the best pizza on earth (and I’ve eaten a lot of pizza in my time) and great staff too.More

This place offers some of the best thin crust I have ever had. If you are visiting SF, it’s worth going out of your way to eat here. Enjoy!

This is the best pizza I've had in a long time! I tried the Van Damme. It was tasty and not greasy! It is a must try in San Francisco.

We sat at the counter and enjoyed a half and half medium pizza and a couple of glasses of the french red. Great food brilliant atmosphere and were never rushed along considering we were sat right on the counter and the size of the place!!...We would definitely come back if we are in San Francisco again anytime soon!!More

We sat on the sidewalk and had a few slices of pizza and some wine here. The pizza was delicious and the service very friendly. Really nice place to have a big slice of pizza and a drink.

Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,

Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
