We stumbled across this place by chance. Looking for a late Italian lunch in North Beach (the Little Italy of SF), we found most places closed between 3 & 5 PM. So we were happy to find NBP open, if empty! The place looks the part, but is actually Greek owned, and staffed by Chinese - very cosmopolitan, but this is San Francisco! Regardless, the kitchen staff seemed authentic (you can view the kitchens from the restaurant) and the food was good and reasonably priced: a calamari starter, chunky minestrone soup, garlic bread, garden salad, tortellini carbonara, lasagne (a bit dry this - lots of pasta & cheese, but not enough meat sauce), topped off with a middle-range bottle of Chianti came to $62. The usual US-sized generous portions, too. The place was filling as we left at 5 PM.

Recently enjoyed North Beach Pizza on Grant Street during a weekend trip to San Francisco. We ordered a pepperoni on thin crust....that's AMORE!! I travel to Italy frequently and have had the best pizza on the planet there. I must say, this pizza at North Beach was the closest to authentic Italian pizza as we've ever had in the U.S.!! The crust was thin and chewy, the sauce was flavorable, and the ingredients were fresh. Prices are great too. Highly recommend!!

This was a great find with very good food. Many of the restaurants in SF are very expensive as expected but this was a pleasant surprise. I would definitely go back. The Pizza Margherita was excellent.

Returned to North Beach Pizza (in its new location) after 15 years and was sorely disappointed. North Beach Pizza used to serve mind blowingly good food, but now it's just average. Far from the. best pizza around, and the homemade lasagna was not very good at all. Won't go out of my way to return here on my next trip to the city.

This SF classic pizza restaurant is our favorite! Delicious crust, a hint of flavor you can't quite put your finger on in the crust! Service is quick and efficient, warm pies are placed right on the table and our boys loved the ravioli! We hadn't been there in awhile and they had moved from one side of the street to the other to update their store. Yummy pizza! When you're done, it's a short "uphill" walk to Coit Tower or a 15 min. walk to Fisherman's Wharf. This pizza restaurant is right in North Beach so if you don't feel like leaving the area, you can check out all of the little shops along the way. Mangia!
