    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

    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

    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

    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.

    The food was alright, but he service has major issues. It took 20 minutes for anyone to take our order. then another 30 minutes for our food to arrive. We were one of 5 occupied tables.

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

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

    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.

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

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