We had the Vincent Van Dough and the MOMA pizza both were beautiful to look at, crust was magnificent, plentiful fillings, quality cheese and generous size. The salads are huge but at $12 made with crispy lettuce and lovely toppings. Perfect! It is so nice...to have it as our neighborhood pizza place this month. The ingredients are beautiful quality and they don’t make the pizza soggy as many places do. The subtlety of the roast garlic was mouth watering. Only a couple of tables inside - but they have delivery and it took about 20 minutes for pickup. We will definitely return.More

Wonderful, fantastic atmosphere, super nice owner and wonderful food. We were visiting from Georgia. It was the best pizza we’ve ever had, and the German lager was awesome. You should eat here whether you live there or visiting.

Why is it that the simple things in life can be some of the best things in life? Frills and hype don’t necessarily equal greatness. We sure found that to be the case at “Za Pizza.” Either their pizza/people combo beckons you here or you...simply pass right on by their humble establishment. I counted three tables and three barstools inside, two tables outside, and exactly one television. Yeah, if you’re here, you’re here strictly for the pizza and the people. Not a bad combo though, right? This place just overflows with genuine local vibe, so no posers, please. Be real or be gone (my words, not theirs). Our server was super friendly and provided great advice about an adventure we are planning for later on this trip (stay tuned!). While I was attempting to secure one of the aforementioned tables outside, he was apparently chatting it up with my wife inside. When he met me outside he said he didn’t realize the weather was so nice today and that I must have brought the nice weather with me from San Diego. When I asked how he knew where I am from he said, “Your daughter told me when I met her inside.” Yeah, I will literally NEVER live this down. 🤦‍♂️ As much as we enjoyed his company, we planned our visit mostly ‘cuz of the (piz)”Za.” That thin crust was just so light and seemed to nearly yield a “crunch” with each bite. We don’t often include pics of pizza crust, but felt compelled to do so this time. Although we customized our “Za”, they also offer a set menu of pizza by the slice options if you’re in a hurry (or traveling solo). Come for the crust, stay for the people (or vice versa). Just get here if you’re near Russian Hill. And that’s…Henry’s Take. #sanfranciscopizza #russianhillpizzaMore

I love this Russian Hill mainstay! As my title says, best pizza, period! It's popular with both locals and tourists as the Hyde Street cable car line runs right in front of it. If you are around when peaches are in season, try the peach...pie. It is divine!More

Never judge a book by its cover, that goes for this place. It’s a small place but it’s hospitality and quality of food are out of this world. Don’t think just come see for yourself. Trust me….

I love pizza. Worked at a bunch of pizza joints. Made a lot of pies. Eaten a lot of pies. Also enjoyed a lot of difference pizza experiences and this place is it. You wont find anything better, probably anywhere. Sure, you may find some...fancy this or that, but this is the real pizza experience, how it should be. The staff are nice, no nonsense. They are cool to your kids. The place has solid atmosphere, dingy SF but charming as it gets. Great for people watching and a chill conversation where you dont have to shout. Do yourself a favor and hit this place up. The pizza is the draw, but the rest of the experience nails it down. Pizza perfection.More

Grabbed a slice of pizza for lunch at the shop. It was just okay. Nothing to write home about. The slice had an odd cornmeal texture to the bottom of the crust which I did not care for. The ratio of sauce to cheese was...off. There definitely was not enough sauce on this slice. When reheating a slice, the staff should take special care not to burn the cheese. The cheese was burnt! 😖More

Went to this pizza place based on reviews. Firstly would have passed by if I had not read reviews as small place. Looks basic inside with limited seating and a couple of basic tables outside. However the pizza was excellent. You can a whole pizza...or by the slice with what is on the board. Staff friendly. Someone passing who is born and bred San Franciscan said it is the best pizza in SFO! Definitely worth a visit and great value for money.More
