Slice: San Francisco

Pizza reviews in the San Francisco area.


First Look: Capo's Chicago Pizza and Fine Italian Dinners, San Francisco

Tony Gemignani of pizza award-winning fame and the always-packed Tony's Pizza Napoletana is opening a deep dish place in North Beach, this Friday night. Nestled tidily on Vallejo off Columbus, a glowing neon sign reads "Capo's," subtly staking its claim in a neighborhood where authenticity, and quality, are prized about as highly as a good whiskey cocktail and a solid slice.

Daily Slice: Veggie at Live Fire Pizza, SFO

Airport eating tends to fall into two categories: on-the-fly meals that you stuff into your carryon as you race through the terminal—Yes, Chex Mix and Chips Ahoy totally count as a balanced lunch if you're flying—and those airport meals meant to kill a little more time, because you got there too early, or, god forbid, your flight is delayed.

This is topped with a sprinkling of snappy fresh arugula, and a pour of extra virgin olive oil. More

First Look: Gioia Pizzeria Comes to San Francisco

Gioia Pizzeria and its New York-style slices with ingredient-driven toppings have always been out of reach for San Franciscans. North Berkeley is just too far to travel on a regular basis when you know a shoe box of a restaurant with only five seats awaits you. But Will and Karen Gioia recently opened a new outpost of their slice shop in San Francisco, and this time it's a full-service restaurant, with a menu that goes well beyond pizza. We visited with Will Gioia to check out the new space and get a look at him making pizzas. More
