A sure bet pizza joint with solid

A sure bet pizza joint with solid pastas too. Don't miss the squid ink pasta (and spicy lovers, be sure to ask for the special chili oil!)

The Counter is Where It's At

A16 has so many reviews, I really don't have much to add about the food. It's my favorite restaurant in San Francisco, and I make sure to get there at least monthly. I'll just mention that in my opinion, the absolute best place to sit is at the Chef's Counter. You get to see how every single dish is made, immerse yourself in the clamor of the kitchen and even chat up the chefs. It's always a great time sitting there, and best of all, these are the seats that are available without reservations!

Do you really want to be seen at a meat market?

I don't. I won't be going back and I'd be insulted if anyone invited me to the place in future. I heard it had promise when it opened, but all I see is just another noisy meat market. The aging drunks at the bar (and outside) were not the kind of people a self-respecting person would want to share an evening with.

over rated

We ate here once and probably won't come back. We shared a tuna reserva and a salad and both lacked seasoning and imagination. Eating numerous time at Pizzaiolo in Oakland and then trying this place was like night night and day. The pizza was ho-hum and having to endure loud marina doosh bags was about as much as we could handle. The service was efficient but chilly and we were treated with watching the pizza cook slurp soda in front of us the entire time out of a deli cup then proceed to make our food. Strike one, two three yer gone.

Well worth the drive to SF

Took a while to get reservations. After eating there, no wonder! Arrived early and sat at the bar. We are really picky on our wines and the bartender had great suggestions which we ended up with for dinner. Staff was excellent, friendly, very helpful. We had the Tuna Conserva Panzanella for starters (WOW), the Salsiccia Pizza, the Pasta Special with spring peas inside (very light)and a Chocolate Budino Tart recommended by our waitress (very light). Served as 3 courses shared by the two of us. Everything was amazing! When we got the bill, we could not believe how inexpensive for such great wine and food. Would definitely go back ...

Best Pasta

We went on a Saturday night without a reservation. We had to wait 45 min for a table. We grabed a glass of wine, and waited patiently. It was all worth it. The pasta with mint and walnuts was so delicious. I could easily have that dish every day.

Neighborhood Love

I like several blocks from A16 and it is one of the best places to go to. It is packed Monday-Sunday; you know it is good when it is filled with people. The atmosphere is amazing and service is superb!!

Our Favorite Restaurant in San Francisco!

We've gone to A16 nearly every Friday night for the last year because it's always a perfect dining experience. The food is excellent, the staff couldn't be better and the wine list is divine. It's the perfect way to unwind and start the weekend. Our favorites include the mozzarella burrata, the funghi and margherita pizzas, the maccaronara pasta and the chocolate budino tart for dessert - all delicious!

This restaurant has a great vibe and we love it!

Tried this place 4 years ago and haven't gone back until last night - same thoughts - Overrated!! If you want pizza, there are plenty of pizza places around - Pizza Orgasmica, etc Italian food - go to North Beach

Bad Experience

Ok, but overrated food. Lamb wasn't as tender as it should be. Atmosphere isn't as good as it used to be.
