As a New Yorker, I hate to admit that this pizza is every bit as good or better than any Sicilian pizza I have had in NY, if your in town here this is a must have!. Well Done..

Hot pizza and cold beer in a funky little spot- perfect combination. The pepperoni and loaded slices were delicious. Prices were perfect for the wallet too (cash only).

This is a tiny place with a limited number of bar seats, atmosphere is a cross between "dive bar" and funky, but the pizza is amazing! They serve beer and wine, and some other items, but you came for the pizza, so order the pizza!...More

Of all the Italian restaurants around North Beach for pizza, this has got to be the best! It's always fresh and hot! The sauce is amazing and the focaccia crust makes it something special. It beats all the other pizza I've had in the Bay...More

The 20 min line was well worth the wait for these pizza slices! They are delicious cheesy bites of heaven. Also good if you are on a budget.

Yum! Found this small pizza joint in North Park. Small place with good music, good pizza and friendly staff. The root beer on tap is not one to pass up. These guys do pizza right: thick dough, plenty of cheese and toppings! The place inside...More

This is my favorite pizza joint in San Francisco; being from NY, I know a thing about good pizza and this is great pizza. You watch them make it fresh in the window. Sometimes there's a line but it goes fast. Great prices that can't...More

Can't believe that being one of the top rated pizzerias they won't accept credit card for foreigners who want to try the best.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
