Emilia’s is excellent and a must-try for any pizza lover, but not my favorite style. It’s one of the closest places to my house but I haven’t had it in ten years. I prefer Lanesplitter for whole pies or Rotten City for slices, thinner and crisper. Neither’s makes pizza as good as Nizza la Bella’s was.
Gioia’s would be great if they didn’t undersalt the dough.

Passione “meat lovers” small ($16): I was picking up some tortillas from Xulo, so I picked up a pie for lunch. Good, not thin-crust, lots of cheese so more filling than your typical pizza that size. I tore off some crust before I drove home and it had a really nice crunch, to try it at its best I’d like to eat on-site when they’re open for that.
great re: Perbacco…never been…I’ll look into Bao’Necci…Tomasso’s and Golden Boy Im familiar with when I lived in SF in the 80s…I can’t seem to find much intel on the newer places in SF…I’ll report on the pasta, thanks
Cotogna’s my favorite for the sort of NY-Naples hybrid style (kind of like Pizzeria Mozza in LA) also made by Delfina, Zero Zero, and Flour + Water. Haven’t been to any of them very recently, for that style I go to Zut in Berkeley.
A16 for hardcore, certified Neapolitan.
I haven’t been back to Tony’s after a disappointing experience in 2012. I suspect they just try to do so many things that they can’t execute them consistently.
