SF Weekly's Description

Pauline's Pizza, the little yellow pizzeria on Valencia that still feels hidden away from the Mission's main restaurant strip, is more than a quarter-century old now. And yet its pies, with their crackly crusts and seasonal toppings, resemble anything you'll find at Pizzeria Delfina or Gialina. Owners Sidney Weinstein and Randy Nathan still grow most of the vegetables they use in their salads and pizzas on their farms (their other customers include a number of four-star restaurants). Pies are served family-style here and range from the straightforward to baroque daily specials. A good sense of culinary balance, not to mention a good crust and good sauce, keeps everything reliably delicious.

Tips from foursquare

    definitelt order the pesto pizza, their signature.

  • Veronica B. on 09/29/11

    Garlic pizza here is awesome.

  • Navin P. on 07/20/12

    Some of the best pizza in the city. Get the daily specials, they're always super fresh and local. And try the house wine!

  • Vincent M. on 10/13/11

    Be sure to tip the cooks, they work very hard. Woo!

  • Sean G. on 05/19/11

    Best table in the house for couples: up front by the window, closest to front door - good views of Valencia street, a little bit private
