    I couldn’t say no to the salsiccia, which came with pickled jalapeños that nestled deeply into the tomato sauce, cheese, and pecorino. I have one word for this pizza (because my mouth is full): dude. Read more

    Their breakfast pizza is amazing: a mozzarella and provolone pie with Sweet Mariquita tomatoes, sliced red onion, hot chili flakes, 5 crinkled strips of Neuske bacon, and two golden fried eggs. Read more

    Come for the pizza; stay for the delicious and inventive Italian plates. And do NOT miss brunch here; but for lack of espresso, it's easily one of the best around.

    If you’re flying solo, there’s a long marble counter that overlooks the kitchen where you can happily enjoy your pizza and don’t have to share it with anyone. It’s that kind of pizza. Read more

    Decent pizza, served in a spartan space w reclaimed wood, concrete floors & filament bulbs. Worth a trip if you are in the 'hood. Avoid dinner crowds. Eat there for lunch. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Gem! Felt like I was in NYC. Lively "late" (for SF) with excellent pizza. Beer & wine only. Try the Milano.

    The pizza is great. But there are a lot of problems with the service. I'm the Mayor here. And even I'm saying that.

    Dope spot, great food. It was a little crowded at dinner. Bar seating was a little tight and awkward.

    The arugula salad is delicious and light. Love the thin crust pizza, they do a great job of it.

    Excellent authentic Italian style pizza. There isn't much room for customisation if you are fussy though.

    I had the Prosciutto slice and the Anchovy slice; neither disappointed. Counter seating is surprisingly comfortable, esp. if you're tall.
