Mediocre pizza, lousy service. We ordered 2 pizzas (thin crust Hawaiian and deep dish Favorite). The Hawaiian's crust's texture was like a biscuit (not pizza crust) and was not thin crust by any means. The deep dish was ok, but no better than Zachary's pizza in the East Bay. The real deal killer was the service though. We knew beforehand the pizza would take a while, but first of all when we decided not to have the onions on the Hawaiian we were charged for 3 toppings instead of 2 (it doesn't take a genius to figure out it only had 2 toppings) and we were offered a box while we were in the middle of eating dinner (as if they were trying to get rid of us). The place was not even full at the time either.
patxi's pretty good.
Better deep dish than Little Star.
Thin crust good too.
No sausage though-only hamburger
Probably best pizza n SF
Great lunch spot. Shopping in hayes valley and Pizza! I didn't even realize this great little spot was around- but i'm glad I do now. We grabbed some quick slices and sat in the front window to people watch. The deep dish is divine! The staff was really nice and friendly too.
Extremely good customer service. Two friends and I went to Patxi's on a Friday night. We ordered when we first got there so the pizza would arrive quickly once we sat down. There was a communication error between myself and the person at the register, and a thin crust pizza came to our table. The staff could not have been more professional about making us happy. They let us eat the thin crust Pizza while we were there, and made us a completely new Chicago style one to go, which was ready when we were leaving. The Chicago style pizza was delicious and authentic, and free. We will certainly be going back after getting such good service.
I know thick crust is great and, all and Paxti's does a great job of making it, but I am addicted to their thin crust hawiian! I live near by, so I frequently get pizza to-go from here. I won't go anywhere else for pizza now. The crust on both the thick and the thin pizza is corn crust, and I only eat corn crust pizza now.
So, if you don't like corn crust, then don't bother with Paxti's, but if you have never had corn crust pizza you should give it a try. It doesn't make you feel terrible afterwards either the way a regular white flour pizza crust will.
Delicious Pizza, Could Use Better Ambiance. Having a great deep dish pizza restaurant in the city is a must. The crust - whether you get whole wheat or regular - has a nice salt flavor to it. I was very pleased with our order - not to heavy for deep dish pizza. The wait staff was prompt to greet us. Suggested we place our order and perhaps get a drink across the street while table became available. By the time 30 minutes rolled around, we had a table and pizza served within minutes. The only fault at Patxi's is the ambiance. No music, too bright, and the TVs make it too sports-bar-like.
Talk about deep dish!. If you crave a different pizza experience try a deep dish here. Initially the wait of 30 - 40 mins. for a pie seemed daughtingly long, but fortunately the beer selection on tap saved the day....although it meant we couldn't eat as much pizza when it finally arrived. The pizza's are very impressive with fresh ingredients and a good tomato sauce that wasn't overwhelmed with oregano and sugar.
Lower Hayes pizzeria serves salads and saucy Chicago-style pies..
Families and couples on dates relax at wood tables in this one-room restaurant with high ceilings. Soft jazz bounces off an exposed-brick wall that's decorated with artsy photos. Flat-screen TVs and picture windows provide additional diversion.
Patxi's earned a reputation in Palo Alto for not-too-rich deep-dish. The tradition lives on in SF. Starters include salads, like a Greek that's piled with chunky cucumbers, bell peppers, diced feta and pitted kalamata olives. Groups waiting for a deep-dish pie to bake should start with an extra-thin, crunchy-crust pizza, such as the light and tasty spinach with pesto. Fans of spongy whole-wheat crust might like the low-fat-cheese Californian. However, the pizza de resistance is the Special. When ordered Chicago-style, its firm yet flaky crust curls over the stuffed pie like an ocean wave. Beneath a top coating of sweet house tomato sauce, thin layers of dough blanket mozzarella, sausage, green peppers and mushrooms.
