I love this place. A group of friends and I frequent it almost every weekend. The pizzas and other dishes are always great... and every week there is a little variety - a new little spin that keeps us coming back. The beer is cold, the wine tasty and the service is genuine. Jack and Gretchen will treat you right! Oh yeah, bring cash because they don't take anything else.

I have heard a lot about this place and it is only four blocks from my home so I had to try it and it is pretty damn good. No, it isn't that thick crust, Round Table kind of thing - if you want thick crust this is not the place. If you

Pros: Amazing and inventive thin crust pizza and fantastic salads

Cons: limited wine list, small space

Teeny tiny, cute & cozy. Fresh ingredients, light and crispy crust, and served fresh hot out of the oven. The pizza selections change frequently so it?s always interesting to go back there. Their salads and soups are also quite heavenly.

tiny place, strange customer service, but wow, what pizza... I always have the regular Marguerita so I don't know all the other varieties, it's so good.

I've used City Search many times while traveling and have had good experiences. Recently and group of friends and I went to S.F. So of course I looked up restaraunts to check out. This establishment was very small and unacommadating.

The atmosphere and delicious ingredients, particularly great cheeses, are what this place has going for it. For the price, however, I did not expect to serve as my own waiter. There were as many staff members as there were customers

Great little gem in the Richmond District. Artisan pizzettas (thin crust) traditional toppings like pepperoni, or change it up with the local specialty of the day such as goat cheese and figs. Very tasty, and they use local and organic products. Very small restaurant so go early or be prepared to wait with a glass of wine or dine outside, with heating lamps, which let's face it in the Richmond District only go so far. They are closed on weird days sometimes so call before you go to make sure they are open.

I've always been blown away by their food. I've probably visited about 5 or 6 times now. It is obvious they use quality ingredients and that they make their pizza with care. One of the posters here has obviously not been in San

I think this was a coffee shop that couldn't make it so they turned to making pizza. Everyone had an attitude and the pizza was more of a cracker topped with cheese than pizza. Not a smile in sight from the staff the entire time we were

Felt like a small hole-in-the-wall place you would find roaming the neighborhood streets of Italy. Maybe the staff read an earlier review - because they were extremely attentive, friendly and pleasant. It's a tiny place - so realize it'll

Even though their pizza are great, staffs are rude and unfriendly. Menu are somewhat pricey. Pizza is small; kids can eat two whole pizza. Very small place and difficult to find parking.

The food is pretty good, but closer to $$ than $ and it really doesn't make up for the service. The staff are unattentive and rude. The place has a romantic setting and might have a charming ambiance, but it's always stuffed to the hilt

I have to agree with the other folks, the pizza there is amazing. It's very delicate and the crust is great if you're into crispy. However, there really is no service. We sat outside and the entire experience was self service. My friend

This is a very cute pizza place, if you are into thin crust pizza. The ingredients are prime quality, and the chef/owner combines them well. In the other hand, the service doesn't match the food. The chef/owner has a serious attitude

The setup is nice. But more coffee shop than restaurant: walk up the counter to order and to pick up silverware and water. It's fine with me, but the prices does not reflect this.
