Hi All,
Anyone tried it out yet? Is it less crowded than the location in the Mission?

    I stopped by for a menu and it was nice to see the sparkling new interior. The staff had that awesome friendly feeling that goes with just opening...this place will be packed all the time, I'm sure, much like SPQR especially in the early evening...I'm thinking it's a perfect place for mid afternoon late lunches with plenty of wine and no place to be except with the person i'm with..

      I tried it on Tues night and loved it. The pizzas coming out of the new ovens are already on point. The menu seems to be more expansive than 18th street. The space is like the Ritz in comparison, sizewise. That's all I really have time to say, but if you're a fan of 18th street then go, go to this location.

      We were hoping that, by going on the second night, that there wouldn't be much of a wait yet. No such luck. 30 min for 2 people at 9p on Tuesday. When we got there, about 6 parties were ahead of us, so that gives you an idea as to the size of the place + turnover.

        I understand after several nights of private parties/services, they opened last night to the public for dinner. Lunch starts this Saturday. Supposed to be twice the size of the original location with an expanded menu.

          Thanks. I drove by and noticed that the lights were on. We have really enjoyed the Mission location, so it's nice knowing that there's one closer to home.

            On the north side of California Street, just west of Fillmore. It is in the old Zao Noodle House location.
