This pizza was the best. We got the pepperoni and spicy sausage.. The crust was the perfect crunch. We loved it and ate it all.

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

The title says it all. I live a few blocks away, so eat or order from here frequently. My favorite topping is the sweet sausage. Great to pick up an extra large slice for lunch or a whole pie for a couple of dinners. My...only complaint is the difficulty in ordering. I wish you could place an order on their web site as the phones can be very difficult. I recommend calling early in the afternoon and then requesting a specific delivery time.More

Great pizza! Was staying down the street and had just got to SF from Boston so was looking for a quick bite to eat. Staff was super friendly and brought our pizza out to us at the table outside. They checked in a few times...to see how we were doing too. I had a slice of the Bluto pizza with sausage spinach and feta and it was amazing. Hubby has the pepperoni and he was equally impressed. Will definitely be trying again before we head home.More

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
