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

Had a delicious Sausage pizza. Perfect late lunch. Second visit, wish we had a place like this in New Jersey.

Met the family at this restaurant and we loved it! Like most restaurants in SF, not a lot of seating area. However, we sat outside and they had heat lamps above, which made our dining experience comfortable. Great appetizers, pizza, and local craft beers!

We were impressed with the good fusion of flavors. Chicken soup was an Italian & Mexican mix. Marinated cucumbers added garum & mint (Vietnamese). The pizza crust was delish but they limited the toppings that would've given it flavor. Basil & cheeses appeared on only 3 of 6 slices. Service was decent but nothing special.

We were lucky enough to walk in and get a spot at the bar. The staff was ultra nice and the pizza was amazing.

Cozy spot, the staff worked like a well oiled machine, very impressive. Everything we ate was well seasoned and executed to perfection. And yes, we went back a second time on this trip.

We visited based on several recommendations from locals. The pizzas are okay, certainly nothing I would go back for. We thought the place was very overrated. Pizzas were also quite expensive for what we received. There are a lot of other really great pizza places in San Francisco.

I always pass up this pizzeria because the restaurant itself is the place where I love to dine. So I tried it with friends. It was okay the crust was good and the salad. But I was not blown away.

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.
