SF Weekly's Description

Very hip, happening artisanal wood-oven pizza place in the Temescal District of Oakland; devotees line up for a crack at the daily-changing menu of starters, salads, pizzas, pastas, and a couple of main-course items (like pork cooked in milk or roasted wild salmon). The owners are veterans of Chez Panisse, and adhere to its policies of impeccable shopping for organic ingredients. Well-edited wine and beer list, delicious desserts.

    It's not something you fold in half to eat, but it's an amazing pie. If you like the pizzas at Chez Panisse, try Pizzaiolo. The chef trained at Chez Panisse, and here they have more than two options!

    Stop in before noon Monday - Saturday and enjoy their donuts and coffee. Make sure you bring cash....

  • Tara d. on 06/03/09

    Go to Pizzaiolo and try the wood fired pizza

    The window for the Wild Nettle and Pecorino pie is limited, but the combination of grassy nettles with salty Pecorino and creamy, buttery, almost-nutty mozzarella is killer when it's in season.

    The secret: go out back! The inside is a circus, but the back is open, quiet, and warm.

  • Kesten M. on 02/08/10

    Get there at 8am on the weekday to get Blue Bottle coffee, killer pastries, and free Wi-Fi. Nice break from the office.
