    E' Tutto Qua is better known for their pasta, but I like their pizza too. Could hardly be closer to Chinatown. I'd be curious to hear others' opinions about their pizza.

      Take a stroll into the historically Italian area of North Beach and you're sure to find something. Here are two more worthy mentions:

      Golden Boy Pizza

      Caffe BaoNecci

          Whole pie: BaoNecci, Tommaso's, Tony's (the main Tony's at 1570 is the one with the big selection).

          Slices: L'Osteria (porcini), Tony's, Golden Boy.

            Wow, thanks. I never even knew Osteria del Forno served by the slice.

              I've visited L'Osteria several times over the past few months and just love the place. My one disappointment, though, was their pizza. The crust tasted like one of those pre-cooked crusts used by places that don't want to go to the trouble of preparing their crust the right way. I could be wrong, but that's what it tasted like to me. It was quite hard.

                TopoTail, did you order a whole pie or just slices?

                  I always get it by the slice. The crust is weird, kind of like Cheese Board / Arizmendi, but with the porcini it's something really special.
