In the foggy Outer Richmond, this casual neighborhood pizzeria has quickly become as hot as its wood-fired oven. Local families come in droves to share a pie or a plate of pasta in the vintage-chic dining room, where laid-back servers chat with patrons beneath funky wallpaper depicting a bevy of Bay Area landmarks and legendary locals.
The chewy, blistered crusts are loaded with flavor, whether in a classic Margherita or salami pie with provolone and red chili. Throw in a seasonal salad, a pile of chicken wings tossed in a Calabrian chili-honey glaze and a glass of Italian wine from the compact list. Save room for the warm almond and Meyer lemon ricotta cake, which gets toasted alongside the pies in the oven.
A second Polk Street location bustles.
