To tell you where I'm coming from, the best Neopolitan style (aka "New York Style") pizza in the USA comes from Grimaldi's Pizzeria in Brooklyn, NY. Google/Bing that and you'll see. Arinell's is a close number two.\r

Pros: Simple perfection

While in SF for work, I stopped into Arinell Pizza for a slice and immediately felt at home, eating a good slice of New York style pizza. I made sure to stop back in several times before heading back to the east coast.

As close as one will get to NY-style pizza in SF. Well worth the hassle of picking up with no easy parking.

Pros: Legit NY pizza

Cons: No delivery and nowhere to sit, so take-out only...

.

Grew up with NY Pizza. Their pizza is good, but not great. The extra crispy crust and the slightly-odd-tasting cheese they use makes it mediocre pizza at best. Also, the staff could use a few lessons in customer service. Their Sicilian

Pros: Good Sicilian pizza, decent thin crust pizza

Cons: If you're looking for really good NY pizza, keep looking. Needs better staff.

Walked into this real dinky, hole in the wall in the heart of Valencia and thought to myself "now this is what I like to see!" Picture this, just enough from for two three stool sized bar tables and the pizza kitchen with it's ovens. One

Pros: Real passionate pizza makers, best example in the city of real street style pizza, scicilian pie available too!

Cons: the slices weren't that fresh as they were sitting out all day, so I unfortunately I did not get the full wiff of how good these slices really could be fresh out of the oven

ordered pizza for pick up and was greeting by the two biggest a$$holes ever. so my pizza came to 25 bucks. yeah 25 for one f-ing pizza. then the little d0uche bag demanded a tip.... for pick up. after he gave me major attitude. never

Pros: uhhh....

Cons: enough said.

The pizza is good, however, not a place that I would highly recommend. I just had the plain cheese one and it was okay - I say "okay' because there was something about the taste, it just didn't seem right. I'm not saying I wouldn't go

Pros: Good value for big slices

Cons: My cheese pizza (but maybe it was just that night, or just me...)

Hands down the best slice of pizza available in San Francisco, trust me I've tried them all. As close as you'll ever get to the best NYC has to offer and frankly better than most of the places back there.

Pros: Best damn slice west of the Mississippi

Cons: No delievery, they close too early

Its all about the slice. The cheese, spices(some grease required), and tomato sauce(not too much) are like a good ole NYC neighborhood slice. My biggest rant is with the crust, it is thin and has the size and shape of a good slice, but it

Pros: Pizza Joint, Fast Food, Muni Accessible

Cons: Small Seating Area, Need B/W Actors Head Shots

.

The pizza was good but not so good that we would deal with the strange staff and non-parking. Given the quality of staff, we were concerned with the quality of the food, thus we will continue to search for great NY pizza.

My boyfriend and I went to school in NY so of course have a bond with the big greasy late night slices of NY pizza. This place is by far the closest thing you'll get out here and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for that new york grease

Pros: Thin, cheap, good for a hungary person near by.....

great location...right by bars like skylark, nice restaurants like ramblas, and hole-in-the-wall bars w/ great cocktails like puerto alegre.

This is very good pizza. Definately good for San Francisco. I'm another east coaster who has been on a quest for a decent slice. This pizza is thin and oily the way pizza should be! The wax paper is a nice touch and it is nice to be able

Pros: Price, Size of slice, Fresh pizza always

Cons: Parking, Seating is lacking

Amazing to find a slice just like NYC. Decor is a typical pizza joint. You eat your slice and leave. I think the one thing that amuses me is the way the cut their slices. It's not evenly distributed so your slice looks a bit warped.

Pros: just like nyc, cheap

The pizza is pretty good, but it was entirely too greasy - which signals cheap cheese. Which equals cheap pizza. But it was pretty good, as greasy things tend to be.

As a displaced East-coaster I've been searching for nearly four years for a good slice of pizza. I think I may have found it, finally! Arinell is a tiny little joint with 6 stools serving up a thin slice of Italian pizza on white paper.

Heard a lot about this New York "style" pizza joint. The good news is: it's a decent pizza for a good price. The generously sized medium will only set you back $12 for a thin crust, well cooked pizza.

The bad news is: This ain't authentic
