The Zagat Review
For a "Bay area version of the cuisine of Southern Italy" , check out these "refined" "hot spots" in the Marina and Rockridge, praised for their "stellar" , "eclectic" wine lists and "fab" wood-fired pizzas, among other "thoughtfully conceived and prepared" plates; "informed" (if sometimes "perfunctory" ) service, "sleek" surroundings and "fun people-watching" are all part of the "sophisticated" package, but be aware that "pricey" tabs and "off-putting noise" also come with the territory.

Had a great evening meal here. We arrived quite late and so didn't have any wait. We sat at the chef counter in the rear area of the restaurant. This spot provided us with the ideal place to watch the chefs work. It was fascinating (and we felt exhausted on their behalf!) We had been advised to order the pizza which we did. The pizza was cooked perfectly in the wood fired oven in front of our seats and the ratio of toppings was perfect (many places over-sauce etc). I'd advise to stick to wine to drink though as all of the beers were canned. The wine list is pretty good and offers bottles over a wide price range, so ordering from there is no hardship.

I am beginning to wonder if A-16 has their employees write reviews. The last couple of times I was there the food was good...but overpriced for a neighborhood restaurant, and the bartender has so much attitude you feel like he's doing you a favor by helping you. Last time I was there I brought my own bottle of wine. A corkage fee is expected...but $30 ...a little over the top. It's more like a penalty fee. All in all ....there are better places in walking distance.

This is where you get great Italian cooking in San Francisco. It's got a friendly neighborhood vibe with unpretentious classics on the menu. The salciccia is my favorite pizza and I would highly suggest getting at least 1 per person, depending on how hungry you will get.
