San Francisco, CA 94107
SF Weekly's Description
Zero Zero is the more expansive, ambitious San Francisco relative of owner Bruce Hill's cult Pizzeria Picco in Larkspur. The Neapolitan-style pizzas with California-style toppings are the same, but at this two-story, dressed-up restaurant he serves a broader menu of appetizers, salads, and pastas, not to mention cocktails and a wide-ranging wine list (which includes quite a few Californian wines on tap). Hill's talent is apparent in appetizers like a snapper crudo with fennel, lemon, and orange trout roe and risotto balls with black-garlic aioli. And the margheritas come out of the 900-degree oven gorgeously spotted, the lattice of charred bubbles deepening the flavor of the crust. But Zero Zero's nontraditional pies are often lakes of cheese, and the make-your-own sundaes too often result in thrown-together bowls of soft-serve ice cream.
Tips from foursquare
The pizza here is Neapolitan -- the Italian invention where the toppings are just the accompaniment to the lovingly made dough that bubbles & crisps in a 900-degree wood-fired oven.
Crisp chicken thighs, burrata ravioli, blistered pizzas, great cocktails. What's not to like?
Cocktails at the bar at any time, and they also have a fabulous pizza and Italian menu. Usually requires a reservation for dinner.
Try the Margarita Pizza and spot it on Foodspotting!
Castro pizza. Yes please.
