Yeah - pretty much as good as everybody says – I have heard a lot about this place and it is only four blocks from my home so I had to try it and it is pretty damn good. No, it isn't that thick crust, Round Table kind of thing - if you want thick crust this is not the place. If you want a huge selection, this is not the place. But as far as great food, a simple menu, a charming spot and great staff - well it is all those things.
My favorite pizza place – Teeny tiny, cute & cozy. Fresh ingredients, light and crispy crust, and served fresh hot out of the oven. The pizza selections change frequently so it?s always interesting to go back there. Their salads and soups are also quite heavenly.
best pizza in western SF – tiny place, strange customer service, but wow, what pizza... I always have the regular Marguerita so I don't know all the other varieties, it's so good.
disapointing – I've used City Search many times while traveling and have had good experiences. Recently and group of friends and I went to S.F. So of course I looked up restaraunts to check out. This establishment was very small and unacommadating. As a party of 5 we were told we could not sit together. We were okay with seperate tables, but when they informed us they couldn't guarantee our food at the same time it was strange. Apparently one pizza fits in the oven at a time? Come on! Trying to work with them, we asked for take out. Eating at Golden Gate park sounded awesome. "We don't do take out." They were rude and extremely snobby. I have no idea if the pizza is worth the poor customer service. Because we couldn't get any! Next time take my pizza and put it the box that left overs go in! And I'll take it to go!
Pizzetta 211- be your own waiter! – The atmosphere and delicious ingredients, particularly great cheeses, are what this place has going for it. For the price, however, I did not expect to serve as my own waiter. There were as many staff members as there were customers present (small place, only 4 tables) and yet we were expected to get our own silverware and napkins, refill our own water, etc. Don't get me wrong- I'm not the type to generally demand that others wait on me, but at $15 per pizza I kinda thought service was included. Well, I guess that's 15% you can save on the tip!
Great, very tiny, pizza spot. – I've always been blown away by their food. I've probably visited about 5 or 6 times now. It is obvious they use quality ingredients and that they make their pizza with care. One of the posters here has obviously not been in San Francisco long if they're complaining about lack of parking and not being seated until their whole party is present. I'd really like you to give me a restaurant worth visiting that has parking, or will seat an incomplete party (other than a huge chain restaurant or something). It is a *tiny* restaurant, as in 4 indoor tables and 4 outdoor with a few seats at the counter. How would that be ok to have a partial party sit waiting, when there are others who can be seated in total? Come on people, use your noggin.
Anyways, I've always found the staff to be great. And as long as you set your expectations according to how small the space is, and how small the restaurant is, you will love it. But, gmckenzie, I would rather you not go back. Please don't bless Pizzetta 211 with you money or your presence - stick with Chevy's. They are better without people like you. Thanks!
Love Pizzetta – My husband and I were afraid to take our two-year old daughter to Pizzetta after reading some of the reviews (about how rude the staff can be). We've now been three times and they have always been exceptionally nice and helpful. Super thin crust pizza and amazing/interesting speciality pizzas that change daily...the kind of pizza we had while traveling in Italy and longed for in the States. The food is out of this world and in my opinion, so is the staff (so far, so good at least!).
Horrible service, rude waiters, not worth it – Well, The pizza is good but no food is worth being treated as a second class citizen. I live around the corner and have been several times until they were so rude I just could not reward them with my business any longer. For instance, what is their policy on take away? Sometimes they do it and sometimes they dont. I supposeI could live with this if their response was cordial. But, it seems they expect you to know when they feel like accomodating take away orders and when they dont.
If they continue the poor attitude and lack of customer service, people will stop going. San Franciscans are smart consumers and will not put up with a frown and snide remarks from their servers over dinner. Definitely not worth it.
Cracker Crust Pizza – I think this was a coffee shop that couldn't make it so they turned to making pizza. Everyone had an attitude and the pizza was more of a cracker topped with cheese than pizza. Not a smile in sight from the staff the entire time we were there. Be sure to wear your beret.
simple and tasty – Felt like a small hole-in-the-wall place you would find roaming the neighborhood streets of Italy. Maybe the staff read an earlier review - because they were extremely attentive, friendly and pleasant. It's a tiny place - so realize it'll be cramped. Maybe you have to clear your own dishes or hand them to the waiter - no biggee, as long as you get a seat and can dig in to the pizzas, daily salads and desserts. Worth the trip.
