During our city tour this morning our guide highly recommended Tony’s Pizza Napoletana as being the best pizza in San Francisco. By the time the tour ended it was lunch time. We looked on Google how far it was from our hotel. It said 1.3 kms so we decided to walk there. We ended up walking through a very busy Chinatown to get to Little Italy where Tony’s Pizza is. Upon arrival we quickly learned how popular the place is. We were told it would be an hour wait so we left our name and number. They use a system through Yelp where we can keep an eye on our place in line and send a text when you’re approximately 5 minutes from getting your table. This was handy as we waited in Washington Square across the street which is a nice park.
Upon being seated we selected a Peroni beer, calamari fritti and Great Grandma pizza. It was all absolutely delicious! The calamari was crispy battered and was very tender. Pieces were a nice bite size.
GREAT GRANDMA $38
aiello mozzarella, sweet tomato sauce, 24 month aged prosciutto di parma, 24 month aged parmigiano reggiano, castelvetrano cured olives, 7 year sandeman port reduction, micro greens, spicy nduja, romano, oregano, garlic oil. She’s aged to perfection.
This pizza was delicious! Everything from the crust to the freshness of our toppings. I wish we had a place like this back home.
We highly recommend eating at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana when in San Francisco. You may need to wait around an hour but it’s well worth the wait. I overheard another customer mention they booked a reservation online through Yelp.
