Met friends here while I was in town. It was clean, food was good, and the staff was friendly. Locals seem to enjoy it!

Originally read many of the reviews mentioning that the pizza is okay, but not worth the price. Decided to give it a shot and ordered the prosciutto and arugula pizza to go. The pizza had splotches of marinara sauce and was mostly just crust, a...More

We had great expectations for this place but only the pasta dishes were tasty. The asparagus burrata was ok, the ahi tuna had no flavor and the pizza was very average and way too expensive. Service was very good so I will give this place...More

This is a fun restaurant in Russiona Hill. The portions are good for sharing. We split the Arugula salad and a Salsicca pizza. We were there on a Sunday night and it was almost full. Both indies and outside dining. Friendly, prompt service.

This is a lovely setting to catch up with friends over a slice. The smaller pizzas were more than enough for 2 gals to share. There were nice varieties. Service was impeccable. We were lucky to be seated in the window front so it was...More

Hadn't booked, but they fitted us in no problem, although was midweek so that might have helped. The waitress helpfully suggested a 14" pizza would be plenty for both of us to share and it sure was, just couldn't manage the 8th slice between us...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
