Loved this place old style pizza thick base but yummy. I ended up coming back a few times get there early there will be bit of a cue to eat but well worth it. It's in the Italian area of San Francisco value for money.

The pizza was delicious and a good size to fill you up. I loved the place. You can sit inside there are some chairs to hang out inside or you can grab and go. Staff were very friendly as well.

Never have I ever had this caliber of pizza. The atmosphere is relaxed and very urban. The food is out of this world, everything has its own flavor from the crust up to the toppings. Pricing is a bit high but I would pay for this quality. Definitely a place to stop.

They do a nice old school job here with a square cut Sicilian pie. Not too thick but just enough so that you have enough sauce and toppings without a soggy chew

Being from Chicago, I hold pizza very near and dear to me. I got the Pesto/Vegetarian, my mom got the Pepperoni and my friend who is a local and has been here before got the cheese. The pesto was not overpowering and the veggies were fresh. The pepperoni was surprisingly not greasy or salty which is tends to be. As... More

We were recommended this place by a local. It is small and we sat at the bar watching soccer with out boys and having slices of pizza. Beer and pizza prices were good. Pizza was a nice change of pace from the ordinary slice. Good place for quicker stop for a slice as it it not a true sit down... More

I used to go to San Fran a lot and this place was right by my buddy's place. Place always had lineups outside, but worth the lineup! Always the go to place for late night pizza, or if you're crazy hungry after a night of drinking!!!

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
