Grimaldi's ( 3 Jun)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
OMG! That's all I can say. This pizza place is one of the oldest in the country and has a cool history. They use coal fired ovens, which makes their pizza unique. The crust and mozz cheese is cooked to perfection. This might be the best pizza I have ever tried...and I've tried a lot! The only downfall, is this place is too popular! They told us the wait would be at least an hour, but we went on an off day and time, which minimized the wait time (about 20 minutes) and worth every second of the wait! Highly suggest going here.

Love at first bite! We went here and ended up sitting at the chef's table. Such a cool experience and vantage point. Can see the chefs prep and cook all the food. The food and service here is great. We ended up getting a few small plates and the sausage pizza. The pizza was great. Good crust and great mozz cheese and sauce. The other dishes here are amazing as well. Highly recommend coming here to try the pizza and the other dishes
Pachino Pizzeria (18 Apr)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
I was impressed! Wasn't sure wat to think prior to coming...passed by this place so many times I can't even count. Got the spicy sausage pizza and loved it. Great crust and sauce. 1 pizza is more than enough for 1 person. I would def come back and would like to try the other pizza's. Outdoor seating, great lunch spot and good people watching
Pizzetta 211 (15 Mar)
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
We loved this place - the space - but the pizza left something to be desired. This is a small, quaint and cool space. Feels like you're eating in someone's home. Only like 4 tables and a small bar with stools. The pizza options are astounding - really cool, organic, fresh ingredients. The crust however wasn't all that. Overall, the experience was amazing, but the pizza was decent. We would love to come back and try some other dishes as everything looked great.

Wow! We were shocked at the quality of the pizza here. First off, it is located in Fisherman's Warf (tourist aea of SF); second, we've never heard of it outside Yelp; third, it's not your typical restaurant - more of a food truck meets street food shack. Don't let Any of that deter you from coming here. We absolutely loved it! We got the Margherita pizza and the Caprese with fresh, local heirloom tomatoes pizza. Both were absolutely amazing. The crust was superb, the cheese and crust cooked to perfection. They have a small space to cook and only outdoor seating (but covered for unpredictable weather). The owners are so nice and love to interact with the patrons. This is a hidden gem that will soon be all the rage in SF regardless of location. The one thing I wish they had (and they said they are working on it) is a liquor license...cause you know, a beer and pizza is a perfect pair!
Tamalpie Pizza ( 6 Jan)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Our first time here and very surprised in the quality and selection. We opted for the Tenderfoot, but got a great tip from a local to ask for tomato / pizza sauce on the Tenderfoot. Made a huge difference. Great crust and toppings. They also have a great selection of apps (the brussels sprouts are amazing!), wine and beer. Fun for groups and kid friendly. Even have a fireplace! Would love to go back and try some of the other pies.

Decent at best. We stopped here on way to Santa Barbara but should have kept driving. The pizza was a thicker crust even though they said thin crust. The cheese all came off with 1 bite. The pepperoni was really good but wouldn't come back. You also have to order at counter they give you a number and they "serve" you.
Capo's (17 Dec)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
From the man, the myth, the legend who brought you Tony's Pizzeria in North Beach...has done it again! This time with a new twist: Chicago style pizza. So 3 choices on most pizza's between: deep dish, pan crust and thin crust. We got the Deep Dish and loved it! I'm not normally a huge fan of deep dish, but Tony is the master and has crafted some wonderful deep dish pie's. The bar is really cool - they coin it as a whiskey bar. Great decor inside, but is small. So expect a wait during peak hours. We sat at the bar and had a blast. Great pizza, drinks and staff. We will definitely be going back once have the craving for deep dish again.

We came here right from the airport to meet some friends, grab a drink and something to eat. Of course I opted for the margherita pizza. These are small pizzas, not meant to be shared...or if you do shared, but sure and get a few of them. The pizza was decent. Not enough mozz cheese, but the crust was excellent. The sauce didn't have a lot of flavor. However, what the pizza lacked in flavor, the restaurant made up for in style. Huge cool dining area. Also, outdoor seating with fire pits. Really fun.
Ragazza ( 8 Oct)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
Love at first bite! Now I was going to give this place 4 stars as opposed to 5, but after thinking about Ragazza and the experience, I gave it 5 stars. The crust - my god the crust! This is what sold me for the extra star. So needless to say, the crust is amazing - not sure if they put extra butter or what in there, but sooo good. the cheese and sauce we perfect and as a whole, a perfect pie! The atmosphere is really cool too. Cool interior, and then they have a large deck out back with heat lamps. We got service outside and was just amazing. Definitely going back soon and can;t wait to try other pie's here.
