Kristy McVey has rated 14 pizzas:
I had forgotten all about this little Nob Hill gem until I was reminded by my hermit neighbor who, despite staying up all hours of the night moving furniture around for no particular reason, is quite the pizza fanatic (delivery of course).
Anyhow...Victor's is a solid, straight forward, and predictable pizza. I love the crispy crust as it's not too thin and not too thick and doesn't resemble the tase of cardboard in the least (which seams to be the common theme in SF pizza's). Their pizza sauce, which couldn't be anything other than homemade, has a really good zest to it. I'm a huge veggie fan myself so the real test is if the veggies arrive crisp and fresh or mushy and brown and I'm happy to report that the viggies passed the test.
It's not quite 5 stars in my book, but you better believe I'll be ordering from Victors again in the very near future.
What a find! Though I was beyond starvation from the moment I walked in to Zeeks I must say I was quite impressed with the overall quality and taste of Zeek's Pizza! Their crust was a little thicker than normal, but nothing crazy like Chicago style, it was crunchy but yet not too hard as there was still some doughy consistency to it as well. When you order your pizza they ask how spicy you like the toppings on your pizza - on a scale of 1 - 5. Since we were still recovering from a long night of alcohol consumption we opted for a 2 which still had quite a kick to it, which is quite exciting as I'm a huge fan of spicy foods (imagine what a 5 would be if a 2 was making us guzzle our water down!)! Finally the toppings: fresh, delicious veggies and meats, and the cheese was perfectly melted over the fresh tomato sauce with out taking over the whole essence of the pizza.
They had great salad selections which were all really tasty with generous amounts of veggies and toppings...love it!
They get 4 stars instead of 5 because the service was absolutely horrendous! We went around 5pm...and we didn't get our salads or drinks until 5:40. There was no excuse for such bad service...other than that their pizza's great!
Oh, and they only serve by the slice until 4pm!
I really enjoyed eating at Za. Everything from their super friendly and laid back wait staff to the funky decor on the walls to their seating options! You can only order their daily specials by the slice otherwise you have to order a whole pie and be forewarned - their single slices were as big as my arm, so imagine how huge a pie would be!
Great thin crust pizza with really fresh toppings. Of course I have to give a shout out to the salad...huge, not lacking in the amount of veggies (that's huge for me), and their two homemade dressings were delicious!!
One of the best pizza joints on Polk st. They're open later than all the other restaurants in the area so it's a no brainer for those late night eaters! Not a huge eating area inside so take this to go or be one of the lucky ones to score a seat outside.
Great thin crust pizza, not a ton of selections but their pesto and pepperoni pizza's are by far their best! Great salads too, just don't go for their homemade vinaigrette - disgusting!
I'm gonna agree with Greg on this one...their crust is somewhat bland. But that's where is stops. I would order RT way more often if they weren't so over priced...their pizza's really good with a huge selection of toppings and creative pies that go beyond "pepperoni and cheese" ...boring!! They have great salads (coming from a big salad lover) and they're pretty speedy on their delivery.
I'm gonna go with 3.5 stars here as they're not quite deserving of my 4 stars, but I really do like their slices. Their delivery is ok if you live in North Beach...you're looking at over an hour on any given day. Other than that I like their thicker crust and the toppings are plentiful and fresh!
I like Mario's. It's a very quaint establishment in the heart of NB. They have a good selection of panini's, salads, and of course pizzas! I wouldn't say their pizza's are over the top but they use the freshest ingredients and the thin crust is just perfect. You can sit at the bar or sit outside for some good people watching. Their wine and beer selection is just OK...but their food is made with love and doesn't take too long.
I love Calzone's more for their location and menu in general...I'd give their pizza's a solid 3 stars. They're more of a thin crust pizza place, not a lot of cheese or pizza sauce, but they're tasty nonetheles. Yes, their calzones are actually quite good and full of yummy cheese and whatever else pleases your palate!
I've been to Tommaso's once...but once was enough to understand why this place is so beloved by pizza lovers. Their thin crust and tasty toppings are just the beginning...this is a very fun authentic Italian restaurant with great pizza's and Italian dishes!
I like Viva...it's nothing spectacular but the crust is satisfactory and they use fresh ingredients. I've even seen them deliver to Red Jack Saloon...who doesn't want pizza delivered to them at the bar?! Viva serves much more than just pizza...so no matter if you're a salad lover, prefer pasta, or just go for the pizza they have something for everyone!
