Delicious pizza. Awesome atmosphere. Reasonably priced. In my four days in SF, we came back for a second dinner here on the last night. My boyfriend thought it was a little loud at the communal/bench seating, so if this bothers you too, I'd recommend requesting a private table or bar seating. So good.

Our pizza seemed undercooked. When we told the waiter he said that that was their style. Service was good, the didn't charge me for my first drink which I didn't care for. We were very disappointed by the pizza which is why we went there in the first place.

I won't bore you all with the details but all the staff here are very odd. We ended up walking out! Which I've probably only ever done once before. They did nothing to help my wife and baby find a seat and made us wait while others sat down and ate. The staff all seemed very entitled and acted like a bunch of spoilt brats. Ultimately its a pizza place and they act all pompous as if its Ritz. I'm not entirely sure why they told us to wait for our table when they never actually intended on serving us! Next time just admit you don't like serving out of towners with a baby sleeping in a stroller and save me the 45 minutes.

Edit: it is worth noting that whilst other negative reviews here have been responded to, I have not heard anything from the restaurant. Shame on them.

Further update: still no response from these pompous losers.

This is an all you can eat pizza place - $45 all in (no a la carte). Menu changes from day to day. Four great appetizers from roasted carrots to salads. One person said they were the best carrots they had ever had! The main attraction though is the pizza, which is think Italian style and is also really good. The crust is super tasty and nice and thin and toppings are clearly good quality. Our fave was the salami with margherita in second. The veggie ones were a bit plain.

Overall it was a fun experience but you can only eat so much pizza and we walked away feeling it was a bit of a low value. Would be great if there was an a la carte option that would be a bit less pricey this the four ????s.

So we read all the good reviews and it seemed like a good restaurant, so we decided to give it a try.

The place is nice, and it gets very crowded at night ( mainly tourists or locals, i couldn’t say !) and therefore gets very noisy. Service is good !

The food is pricey and you don’t get a lot for your money.

Though you can tell ingrédients are of quality, unfortunately pizzas are small and the filling are very very light.

As for drinks, I decided to go for the housewine, but it almost tastes like vinegar, (please, please change it on the card ! you can’t serve this wine ! ) Thankfully you have other choices on the card.

So we wanted to go there last night for diner and while going for drinks at the bar across the street (which is by the way amazing with 30 different sort of local beer) I went to the restaurant to reserve a table. The hostess explained they do not take reservations but she can put my name down and whenever we go back we will be on top of the list.
So we went back at 8 and she said we were too late and she only keeps tables for 15 minuets and we would have to wait another hour before she would give us a table.
We obviously walked away as that rudeness did not worth a wait.
I still cannot understand how We could have been late if they do not take reservations!
It would be good to make up your mind do you take reservations or not?

Exceptional wood fire grilled pizzas and tasty sides. An extensive wine list that pairs nicely with the dishes. Top notch service, intimate setting, classic San Francisco restaurant execution.

I met a friend at her recommendation. I enjoyed the interesting flavors: not your average, standard pizza, but not so out there and weird that it's just unenjoyable.

I'm told they change the menu frequently, which is nice if you like to try different things and have some variety... probably not a good thing if you fall in love with an item and want to have it again.

Great atmosphere. Best part of the pizza is definitely the crust!! Flavors are lacking a little bit but overall he experience was good.

THE Pizza Spot in SF. If you want blistered, beautiful and bright pizza, don't go anywhere else! From my POV, there are two top pizzas in SF, these guys and Josey Baker's 'za (more NYC style, larger pie, less bubbly crust).

Del Popolo brings the whole package when it comes to excellent service, a hip but welcoming vibe and killer food across the board. The appetizers can be a smidge oily but the taste is always excellent!

Date night, treat-yo-self night, friends from out of town... you'd be hard-pressed to go wrong here.

Pretty amazing place. Loved it. The leek appetizer is incredible. Simple and limited menu, so they concentrate on doing a few dishes right. All the pizzas are wood fired with an excellent dough and fresh ingredients. The Margarita was a bit soupy but delish. Wines are pricey, and they are weirdly served chilled. The room is noisy, so I don't recommend it for a first date or an intimate eve. Great service, attentive and prompt. We loved it.

Great pizza. Super friendly staff. Fun vibe.

Only negative is it gets really hot in there, especially in the summer, from the oven being in the middle of the room. Cross breeze would be nice.

I LOVED it!! Highly recommend the mozzarella di buffalo!

Pros: Crust was perfect chewy goodness. Crushed tomatoes are the perfect balance of tangy and sweet.

Cons: The butternut squash appetizer was a little underwhelming as i the tempura batter was a little too thick for my tastes. Pizza was cut into 4 slices which made it a little difficult to share with large groups. Place was small and had to wait a bit to get seated.

We went here for a wedding function and it was awesome. The staff were really great and looked after the bride, groom and all of the guests.
Their pizza was delicious, I really loved the crusts, they were perfect. We also had a chicken dish which was fantastic!
Definitely recommend for a small function, it was dressed up really nice and was separated from the rest of the restaurant.

The pizza was a huge disappointment. Very SOGGY. Not sure why. It was charred but had no crispness whatsoever. Our server said it’s due to the high temperature of the wood burning oven. Huh??? The whole point of the wood burning oven is to get the perfect blend of crispness and chewiness. Complete failure here.

The little gem salad was well prepared, but the grilled leeks were tough and oddly seasoned. We arrived at 5:20 to wait for an unreserved spot. We got a very nice table. The place was packed by 5:40. We waited slightly longer than expected for our first courses and way longer than expected for the pizza.

This place has fantastic Neopolitan-style pizza, and the service is great as well. The crust is airy and chewy. The sauce, sweet and tangy. The toppings are of excellent quality and thoughtfully combined. The mussels were delicious as well, prepared in a sweet, creamy broth with pork and fennel leaves. It's a great neighborhood spot and is also worth the trip if you're craving gourmet pizza.
