This is the restaurant I go to every time I come to SFO. It is delicious, the staff is nice, and I always leave fully satisfied. Great food!

We were doing the touristy thing in the city...and ordered this for delivery to our hotel. I am somewhat of an authority when it comes to pizza. The bread was sweet like a milk/white bread recipe. The cheese was a high quality whole milk mozzarella. The tomato sauce fresh and spicy. The toppings high quality. I will find an excuse to go back to the city for more ! YUM!!!!

The pizza is of poor quality. The price is very high. Five small pizzas and two mineral water $ 130.
The staff is not Italian and little known in the field of Italian cuisine.

I love this quaint lil place in North Beach! Their pizzas are great but their pasta's steal the show. The penne alla vodka in particular is scrumptious!!! Love the bread they serve too.

Don't be fooled by the friendly greeting as you walk in through the door, because the minute you are seated you are treated like dirt. We ordered the 'Viva' salad and steamed clams to start and a large pizza to share for main. The salad was a big plate of bitter tasting leaves not helped by the huge quantity of oregano dumped on top. The steamed clams arrived at the same time as the pizza but were freezing cold so we had to send them back. The pizza was heavy and soggy and just tasted like mush. The management only seemed concerned about getting bums on seats and not about supplying their customers with a decent food experience in a nice environment. Whilst sat there we heard a number of people around us trying to get the attention of the waiting staff only to be ignored. Definitely a place to avoid!
