Pizzeria (23 May)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
Yes! I have finally found the West Coast's answer to Papa Gino's. Ordered a plain cheese for delivery, and it's just what I like - extra thin, with limited and perfectly distributed cheese that meshes with the sauce perfectly. Awesome!
Pizza Nostra (13 Apr)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Another new gourmet pizza place, this one down in Potrero Hill. Large individual thin crust pizzas. Really tasty - my only complaint is the crust could be crispier - aka more like Pazzia and less like Pizzeria Delfina.
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
I added this place because people from the west coast seem pretty passionate about it, and we don't have it back east. For the record, I am no pizza elitist, I call upon Dominos when the mood strikes. After a few tries, I'm neither loving or hating it. The crust is like regular bread - quite bland...and I like bland. Also they are pretty light on the sauce, but heavy with the cheese, which is opposite for my tastes. I will say one time it had more sauce and less cheese, which bumped it from 2 to 3 stars. For a regional chain, his place has nothing on Papa Gino's!
Antonio's Pizza (28 Feb)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
The first thing you'll notice at this place is the wide array of slices available. Some crazy combinations - and just plain old standards too if you like. Awesome, hearty slices, a UMass staple.
Mamma Ilardo's (28 Feb)
  • Currently 2.0/5 Stars.
Just a few bites in on a cheese slice at the Baltimore airport, a couple walking by asked "how's the pizza?" which forced a quick on the draw review. "It's alright..." then as they walked to the counter I added "decent...nothing great". That pretty much sums it up - the "NY Cheese" was soft and floppy. The cheese was decent and seasoned well which helped. The couple opted instead for Arby's. Good call.
Cello (26 Feb)
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
Quite pleasantly surprised with "Cello Pizza & Kebab". Wasn't really sure what to expect with that food combo, but this was good. On the thin side, tasty (somewhat spicy) sauce, and the right amount of cheese. Pretty greasy (had to soak with napkin), but I had pepperoni so it's to be expected. Definitely going back here.
Sparky's (11 Feb)
  • Currently 2.0/5 Stars.
Extremely average, nondescript pizza, which should be expected from a diner. Had the plain cheese, not particularly thin or thick and on the bland side. Then again, it wasn't particularly offensive either. Extra points for 24 hour (!) delivery and a giant menu where everyone gets what they want (including grilled sandwiches, burgers, entrees, salads, fries, breakfast...). Definitely would work for a drunken late night delivery.
Bimbo's 365 Club ( 1 Feb)
  • Currently 2.0/5 Stars.
No this is not a pizza restaurant. But a lot of people eat here before/during shows, and pizza is one of a total of four choices on the menu. For the record, expectations were modest considering this is a theater first and a restaurant second (or even fourth). But there's also the rule that even when pizza is bad, it's good. Without going into specifics - no es bueno. One note - there's chewy crust, and then there's cardboard. Try the burger.
Victor's Pizza (26 Jan)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
I had a good feeling about this place when for a small slice shop they had no problem delivering to my apartment several neighborhoods away (thank you very little Za Pizza). The fact that I only ordered one large cheese from this distance didn't seem to bother them one bit either...and even arrived in a mere 35 minutes. Interesting pizza - not very thin, average thickness. Nicely seasoned, I didn't need to add anything to it. Good size pie too, cut into many small slices. Chewy crust, interesting sauce, great cheese. Not making my top 3 in SF, but well above the average in these parts. This pizza has character, definitely gonna get it again.
Za Pizza (20 Jan)
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
Tasty, thin, giant slices. Had the plain cheese - lots of cornmeal on the bottom of the crust, which is fine by me. Only complaint is it was a bit undercooked, otherwise nice cheese/sauce combo. Worth checking out! **Review Update** Just had this again, felt the need to downgrade - kinda floppy and doughy. Reduced to 3 stars. Seems a little overhyped.
