“a long wait but worth it”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

It was so busy on a Sunday afternoon that there was a 30 to 50 minutes wait. However, it was recommended by a friend and worth the wait. Great food, large portions and great wine. Service very good, very casual.

“Excellent Pizza in Great Location”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were told this was the best place for pizza in the city and I would agree. Could choose from many different types of pizza cooked in different types of ovens and/or diff temps. We had a great street side window table with a great view of all that was going on outside in this vibrant North Beach neighborhood location. Would definitely return.

“Awesome pizza and meatballs”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Make sure to loosen your belt. Tony's has amazing pizza. Tony's Is the only pizza restaurant where we have eaten where you can pick several different ways to have your pizza cooked. Electric, gas, wood and coal. Along with many toppings. We decided to try the award winning Margherita pizza (only 72 made daily) and we shared an order of meatballs with the pizza. It was all terrific. Of course the beer has to go with the pizza. Thanks Tony's.

“Be prepared to wait.......”

This restaurant does not take any bookings and we had to wait 1hr 45 mins for a table. The service was friendly and the pizza was definitely worth the wait. Yummy..........

“Best pizza with great staff”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We found this place on our 5 day stay in SF, and what a find it was! We ate here two nights and the food was amazing. I had a calzone pizza, hands down the best pizza I have ever tasted! Just wish there was a restaurant in London :( Amazing
