A16 or ZeroZero
Hi - We love Pizza Delfina but don't want to deal with the wait if we are going with the kids.
Would you recommend A16 or ZeroZero in terms of the pizza?
A margarita at A16 is $15 seems kinda steep. Would love to try Flour+Water but cant get res.
Any other recomendations?
A16's pizza is straight-up traditional Neapolitan, like Una Pizza Napoletana. Tender, not crisp.
Zero Zero's is a hybrid local style, like Flour+Water, Delfina, and Cotogna (my favorite of the genre). If you're taking kids, 00's soft-serve ice cream might also be a plus.
Overall, across the menu, I think the food at A16 is a step or two up, but personally I prefer the latter style of pizza.
This was our finding as well on a recent visit with our kids. We also *loved* the cocktails. In fact, we enjoyed our experience here so much that DH & I wanted to return this past Sunday while on an impromptu date night but unfortunately got stuck in a ridiculous traffic mess around Moscone due to I believe Obama's arrival.
Frustrated with traffic & looking for parking, we ended up at the bar at Boulevard. Great service but food was, how do I say it...boring.
I'm looking forward to returning to Zero Zero...A16 (went in Dec), not so much.
ETA: Kids preferred Zero Zero pizza over A16's.
