SF Weekly's Description
Eating at Una Pizza Napoletana, which moved to San Francisco's SOMA district after a legendary five-year run in New York, means that you, the diner, operate by owner Anthony Mangieri's rules. One: no reservations. Two: limited hours. Three: You wait, generally around two hours - first to get a seat, then until Mangieri makes your pie. (Bring snacks.) Four: Mangieri makes only a few pizzas, none of which have meat. But those pizzas! The crust comes to the table smoking, with wild rises and falls around its lip as well as great black bubbles. Toppings are spread across the surface of the pie in precise syncopation, so every bite unleashes some new delight. In a city overrun with ambitious pizza makers, Mangieri proves that simplicity and intense focus are the only path to perfection.
Tips from foursquare
This new place from New York's Anthony Mangieri promises to be one of the best Naples-style pizza joints in the country when it opens next week.
A few-hour wait is nothing once you bite into one of just four pies from a master pizzaiolo.

My favorites are the Filetti and the Illaria.
On the Filetti, crust and cheese are dotted with cherry tomatoes that pop with sweetness—particularly in summer, when just about nothing could be better than a tomato. Except one on pizza this good.
