Another Response to TimHill2
I have to pile on here. I've been going to Lococo's on Piedmont for years (I'm going to eat there tonight, as a matter of fact), and this review makes no sense to me at all.
First, ""cash or check only"" is posted clearly by the front door. If you didn't see it, that's your fault. I don't think restaurants need to warn every customer at every meal - it would be annoying.
Second, in my experience, the service there has always been warm, friendly, and efficient. They get busy at times, and it's a small joint, but it's family run and they act like it.
Third, the pizza is excellent. In my opinion they have some of the best thin-crust pie in the bay area, and as someone who used to live in New York, I am picky. (The other food, especially the pasta specials and the cannoli, are also outstanding.)
This place is a neighborhood institution that has earned its reputation. When my wife gave birth to my first child, this is where she wanted her post-delivery dinner to be from. I can't think of a better endorsement.
