O.K...Here we go...being from the Bronx, pizza is my life, tomato sauce runs smoothly through my veins. On a traditional basis I take my two grown children now 26 and 23 and my wife to the Nutcracker Ballet. For the past 15 years we add to our marvelous day after the Nutcracker and go to Gaspare's..... yes...remind's me of home of course! Cozy little warm corner of the world with many happy families at tables being happy families..Pizza is wonderful.........................
just'a'like'a New York City style...it is pretty close to it! The pasta is fabulous with da sauces too. And...after the dinner we go next store to the Russian Bakery...cannot do better than that!!!! It is great food and fun period!
Great pizza and Italian atmoshere – Retro SF Pizza restaurant
The owner gave me the finger yes he actually did – I visited this horrible resaurant on the basis of trying to celebrate my brother's Birthday. He is a totally disabled Combat veteran, it took a lot to go out as he is in a Lot of pain. But he acquiesced to my wish to celebrate. We were promised 5 times that we would be next, anyone that had eyes could see how very much pain my brother was in, but holding quietly and bravely. Person after person after person was seated ahead of us, I mentioned that we really needed a table, This is the time the owner picked to brag about being in the army himself, and to attempt to flirt with me. To be bragging about this in front of my brother, while never even recognizing his presence - to compare a service that took most of my brother's life at 18 and comparing his own was the very least in Very Bad Taste. Totally ignoring my brother and his medals. Not even speaking to him or noticing him. never mind trying to explain the situation to him.
I asked him what army he was in, (as I could not believe he could treat a decorated veteran this way), at which the owner threw his arms up in the air, started screaming and threw us out of the place. Period. He put his hands on me, and my brother had to say not to touch me. He went outside after us, gave us the finger, screamed something about Prozac. Inhuman would be the word to use regarding his behaviour. HORRIBLE even illegal. If someone had asked my brother what army he was in, he would have been proud to say the U.S. Army. Really incredibly callous, mindboggling. What caused his reaction only his demons can answer. No food is worth this hell. No food for my brother after 1 hour wait. I was so sorry to have suggested it, it broke my heart for him. I am literally in shock as I type this, trying to balance whether to sue or certainly at least getting some Veteran's organizations involved.
Next time you go here, and look into the owners eyes, see if he is happy to see you, or his joy is glazed over thinking of your checkbook, You will be able to see which it is I'm sure - and next time I eat his pizza, Not for a Very long time) I wonder if that finger has been near my food . Very shabby unappetizing place. Turned my stomach off eating for a while ~ I would sincerely be very concerned about eating here, if you care anything at all for our Amercian heroes that people like to sweep under a chair, not a table, there's none to be found for the wounded. here
Great thin crust and atmosphere – This is a little place my friend introduced me to. I really think this is a great pizza place, the prices are reasonable and the ingreidents are fresh. The service is touch and go. The staff seems more preoccupied with their social lives than their customers. I really like the feel of it though. There are vines hanging from the ceiling and it's got a local vibe!
Horrible customer service, Awful food, and overall dissatified. – We decided to look up some Italian places to while visiting San Francisco. We came across Gaspare's through this website and decided to check it out. So we get there around 7ish in the evening and get seated. We ordered a Spinach and Garlic Pizza, Cheese Pizza for the kids, and a salad for my husband and myself to share. We received our salad right away (around 7:20ish) and honestly it was mediocre at best. Here is where the problems came into play. After waiting 30 minutes for the pizza's the waitress finally came over and placed the pizza tray to hold the pizzas on the table. She told us the pizzas would be up in a little while. Well time passed my kids were getting extremely impatient and there was no pizza. A couple that was sat down maybe a few minutes before us had had their salad and pizza and left by this time. By this time I was getting extremely irritated and I was watching the kitchen the whole time waiting for our food to come. I saw many many people leave with take out (probably about 10 orders) and still no food for us. My guess is they decided to do all the take out orders before they did our order or became overwhelmed. Needless to say just as I looked at my clock it was around 8:40 our pizza arrived finally. The pizza to be honest was somewhat cold, and tasted very bland. It was almost as if they put very little sauce on it at all. After we were finished we had another horrible experience because we had to wait nearly 25 minutes to get out check. I asked two people, one person that was filling water (she came around maybe every 30 minutes), and then the bus boy for our check because there was no waitress in site. She never even came once to see if we needed anything. Finally I had to walk up to another waitress and ask for our check. Then it took another 5-10 minutes to get our waitress to give us our check..by this time I just wanted to put some cash on the table and go. Altogether I would not recommend this place to eat ever.
The Best Pizza in Town (but the entres are mediocre) – I was skeptical about ordering pizza because I had been to Gaspare's once before, and my entre was mediocre. I thought I would not return, but my buddy was in town and we wanted some pizza. I read some reviews that were mixed. We ordered a sausage and mushroom pizza with anchovies. The crust is a crispy thin perfection. Plenty of toppings with olive oil dizzled lightly on top. It's one of the best pizzas I've had. I may not go back for an entre, but when I want pizza I am only sorry that I didn't discover this place sooner. It rocks. Be prepared to wait, because Gaspare's has quite a loyal following . . . and now I know why.
Pizza you want more of... – Been going for years and food has always been good, pizza incredible! Especially the Margerita! If you like lots of meat get the bruce's special. Only once the pizza wasn't the same and it was because Gaspare or Daniel ( Gaspare's son) didn't make it that night. They're a good family, which makes their restaurant a great place to go. (plus they stay open till midnight)
Best Cheap Pizza and Italian! – Friendly and good pizza. Also, Linguini with white sauce was very good! I rather come here instead of Pizzetta211. Many selection and inexpensive. Good for family dining. Good crowd, but not waiting too long; there are plenty booth seating. Good Old Italian Restaurant. Very comfortable to spend the time here.
Worst pizza ever – That was the worst pizza I have ever tried. A galon of oil, generous layer of tomato paste, a pound of old garlic, and another pound of salt. Everything including service and sleezy waiters was BAD!
Not the best anything – Last night we went for dinner here. It was a friend's birthday and we knew that the pizza here is good. However... it was salty. Like we drank all our water in three seconds after trying the first bite. And then our water glasses sat empty for the entire rest of the meal!!!
The service was the WORST I have had in a long time. Rude, never helpful, and I only saw our waiter twice in the entire time we were there!
I would just order takeout if you are willing to chance the salt factor (sometimes the pizza is amazing, sometimes it is really awful).
