New pizza place in Glen Park

  • j

I just heard there's a new pizza place in Glen Park. Don't know the name, don't know the address, just heard it was worth checking out. Any reports?

    1. It's called Gialina. I'm excited to try it. Here's their site:
      http://www.gialina.com/

      Do yourself a favor and subscribe to Tablehopper (extremely well written and very interesting email newsletter about SF openings and closings). That's where I learned of Gialina.

        Did they name a pizza after you? Did you look at the menu? Of course, you have to try the Atomica pizza now. If I can get over there I want to try the pizza with dandelion greens, sweet Italian sausage, Fontina

        Looks like a good menu. They are serving Bi-rite ice cream in addtion to the house-made lemon ice.

        That apetizer list looks kind of excellent too ...
        Prosciutto di Parma, persimmons, dates, pistachio

        Antipasti- Framani salumi, wild mushrooms, white beans, shaved fennel, olives, herbed ricotta, peppers

          Funny, I didn't notice that pizza until last night, about the 3rd time I had looked at the menu. They certainly didn't name it after me!

          Any place that will put an egg on a pizza has my admiration. I'm interested in the one you mention with dandelion greens, and also the Zucca (winter squash, fresh ricotta, ricotta salata).

          Ugh! Another posh one! I was really hoping for a good thin-crust-pizza-by-the-slice to replace the awful pizza Sunset used to make there. With the looks of their menu and reviews posted below, I won't bother until I hear something really good about them.

          1. I'm skeptical about those photos, but if you say so. :)

            I wonder what their hours are and if they do lunch. Can't find hours on the website. Restaurants often overlook this info, but I'll give them a pass since they're new. Thanks for the review.

            1. re: Atomica

              I am pretty sure they open at 5:30; not sure on closing but not too early. No lunch YET. 7 day/wk.

              1. re: Atomica

                You can see their hours here (someone should redesign this site -- hours ;should be on the home page or the "about us" page, don't you think):

                Scroll to the bottom of the page.

            2. If only they served burrata, I would be there tonight!

                  Regular deck ovens. I went last night too. I live in the hood now and was so hopeful to have a good pizza place nearby. What I found was typical undercooked california pizza dough that tasted odly sweet. Toppings were average in that I think they are using average restaurant quality ingredients rather than top flight farm sourced ingredients such as Pizzaiolo or A16. If they are using top flight ingredients, they are being handled without much care. The margherita sauce was overly sweet and the cheese rubbery. The dandelion greens on the other pizza lacked any depth. The salad was somewhat wilted and totally overdressed. This is NOT Neapolitan style pizza. I am so disappointed. I will either BART to Pizzaiolo or drive to A16 to get my pizza fix. Also worth noting that their prices are exactly the same as A16's or Pizzaiolo. It is a rip-off taking advantage of a captive neighborhood audience.
