Pizza Restaurants San Francisco

The recommendations on this page for Pizza Restaurants in San Francisco are not your typical pizza spots, but they are excellent, and they are favorites among the locals in this city.

Delfina Pizzeria

Delfina Pizzeria, located in the Mission (on one of my favorite blocks in the city), is a popular, little place that serves epic, artisanal pizzas. It’s a casual spot, and their pizzas are a mix of New York and Neapolitan inspired pies, made with high quality, local, and seasonal ingredients.

They are one of the few places in the city (outside of North Beach) with outdoor seating on the sidewalk, which can be a real pleasure since the Mission is one of the sunnier neighborhoods in the city. Be aware that they do not take reservations and, like many of the great places in the city, wait times for a table can be long.

Address: 3611 18th Street (between Valencia and Guerrero)
Hours: Monday 5:30 – 10pm, Tues-Thurs 11:30am-10pm, Friday 11:30am - 11pm, Saturday 12 – 11pm, Sunday 12 -10pm

Pizzetta 211

This little spot is located in the outer Richmond, and is truly a neighborhood gem. They have a small menu, which changes weekly, and the pizzas are quality.

It’s not a good place to go with a large group (more than 4), as the seating is really limited. They only have about 4 tables in the whole place, plus a few seats at the bar. For a couple though, it can be a really intimate experience!

It’s a popular spot, so it helps to get there early or go on a wet day, when they tend to be less busy. They do not take reservations

The service is very casual. Once you are seated a server will come take your order, but you are responsible for getting your table settings and water.

Address: 211 23rd Avenue (one door down from the corner of California and 23rd Ave)
Hours: Monday and Tuesday 5-9pm, Wed-Fri 12-2:30pm and 5-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 12-9pm


A16 is a great Italian restaurant with a varied menu, but who are well known for the incredible pizzas that they serve. Listed as one of the Bay Area’s top 100 restaurants for several years in a row, they are named after a highway that runs through southern Italy – the region they get their inspiration from.

Located in the trendy Marina district, the crust on their pizzas is really special, and supposedly there is a 50-page manual on how to make it. You won’t find anything like it elsewhere in the city – pillowy, chewy, and thin, it’s my favorite pizza in the city.

I love to get their margarita pizza with a healthy serving of fresh arugula on top.

They take reservations, and it is definitely a good idea to make one. This is a trendy place, and they are often fully booked for several days, if not sometimes weeks, in advance.

Address: 2355 Chestnut St. between Divisadero and Scott
Hours: Dinner: Mon-Thur 5:30-10:00pm, Fri 5:30-11pm, Sat 5:00-11:00pm, Sun 5:00-10:00pm | Lunch: Wed-Fri 11:30am-2:30pm
