So glad to support such a great restaurant. Ingredients grown in their own garden are marked on the menu, great selection of wine and we had a delicious vegetarian pizza.

We went to a pre-nuptial dinner here, so we didn't order off the menu, our food was pre-ordered. We had salads and pizza, the pizza especially was delicious, unusual and fresh ingredients. My favorite was the basil pizza.

Our first night in San Francisco and we were hungry and tired after traveling all day. Pauline's was delicious. Great atmosphere and service. I would highly recommend the Pesto pizza.

We really really enjoyed our pizza here. Loved the specials with the unusual in-season toppings. We had both the meat and the vegetarian special and they were wonderful. Thin base, light and fluffy crust, super tasty. The homemade sausage was excellent! Would definitely go back.

First off, the pizza is spectacular. The crust is medium thick, charred nicely with giant air pockets. If you are a bread fan you are going to be happy. We tried their signature pesto pizza as well as another which was a meat/veg combo. Strong...More

Awesome unique pizzas made from all organic ingredients, many from the owner's garden. You may not know what all the ingredients are on the vegi or meat specials but worry not they will be great. They also have an wine bar next door and serve...More
