You can bring anyone here for an informal dinner. An upgrade on the Pizza’s would be nice - this could be a great pizza place, if some creativity was added to the toppings. I would not go here for fine dine....

We were seated promptly because of our reservation. Food was okay, wine was okay (the house chardonnay sucked - they gladly replaced it with a Sauvignon Blanc). Service was okay (place was crowed that night). Substitutions to the menu were allowed. Three entrees, three wines,...More

Pizza's are generally good. Crust it great. You can design your own pizza which is nice. For home delivery it is almost always 1 hour which is a long time even the fact we live 5 min by car from the restaurant.

Good food. A little crowed with the tables so close. The staff was overworked. A good place to take kids.

Gaspare's Pizza House & Italian Restaurant in San Francisco first opened in 1985. Our second location Gaspare's Pizzeria Ristorante Bar in San Rafael opened in 2007. It is owned and operated by Daniel, Gaspare and Robin. It’s the best pizza in the Bay Area! We serve home style Italian cooking in a romantic setting at very reasonable price! Besides the best pizza, we are serving a variety of pasta dishes, veal, chicken, seafood, vegetarian dishes, gluten free choices and more. Last but not least, we are proud to serve the best homemade cheesecake this side of New York. The entire menu can be prepared to go for pick-up or delivery!
