    Pizza's are delicious but this not Burger King -- you have accept the pies as they are, you can't have them your way.

    Get the gin and tonic and pizza with nettles or chanterelles. Everything is so damn good. Get in when they first open, no need to be picky about when you eat, just get in when you can.

    Menu changes daily. Nothing disappoints; homemade bread is great (better than Tartine's). Can't go wrong with pizza, and drinks are well-balanced.

    Technically not in SF, this is one of our top 3 pizzas in the bay. Opened by ex-Chez Panisse alums. Service is almost alarmingly attentive. Boot & Shoe is the sister restaurant but isn't as good.

    I'm a glute-tard who willingly subjects herself to inevitable pain and suffering for their pizza + pasta. It's that good. Pro tip: if you love pork, you'll want anything with guanciale in it.
