A couple of friends and I are in down in San Francisco for a work conference, and we settled on this place for dinner (after a friend of a friend recommended it!) and boy did we LUCK OUT! At first glance, the restaurant is super cute with tables both inside and out. They offer a ton of different wines and... More

We walked a long way to get to Delfina's but it was worth it. Simply one of the best pizzas I've ever had. The crust was light and crisp, and ingredients fresh. I had the clam pizza which had a real depth of flavour. The service was really friendly too.

Had lunch here and we ordered the prosciutto pizza and beet salad to start with. The salad was delicious! The beets were so fresh and delicious. It was mixed in with barley and cream which enhanced the beets flavor and I loved it! The pizza, however, was too salty and was very disappointing! I was only able to eat 1.5... More

So many people raved about this pizza and my husband just thought it was okay. Since I am gluten free, I had the chicken which was moist and juicy, with lots of spice on the skin. Since pizza places are a dime a dozen I don't know that I would go back again, if I was in the area.

Yes, this very famous pizzeria in the Mission is really as good as its fame. Pizzas are light, made with excellent ingredients, and simply very very good ! If you go late (i.e., after 21:30) you will skip the queues.

Wasn´t expecting much when I saw the crowded little place on 18th street, but I was too hungry to be picky and the smell immediately reminded me of home. the taste even more so: the pizza was just like in italy, thin and crusty. the ingredients of the topping (we had a simple margherita) were very good, tomato tasted like...

Who could ask for more. The staff was great and the food was awesome. I was there with 3 friends and we each got a pizza and a cannoli. The pizza was fantastic, the cannoli wasn't bad either.

We found this restaurant by chance and frankly never had a better pizza in our lifetime. The crust is divine and, as we shared two pizzas on their menu, we had the pleasure of tasting simple and delicious ingredients, perfectly balanced. The tomato sauce that was used for one of the pizzas was paradise on our tongue. Do not miss... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
