Pizza for a crowd near Fairmont Hotel [San Francisco]

Hi. I'm going to need to ensliceafy about 70 hungry sommeliers prior to the main dinner of a wine event at the Fairmont in San Francisco.

It's to tide them over till later, but I'd like to get them something pretty good and relatively close. Delivery would be a plus. Probably 20 pies.

Any ideas?

  1. Welcome back!

    The Pacific Heights location of Pizzeria Delfina is a straight shot down California St about a mile and a half. Easy to send someone in a cab to pick-up. No one will argue with your choice.

    Then a little closer and with delivery, Za Pizza. It's also thin crust. It's been a while since I've had one. Hopefully someone can give us an update.

    Closer still at 0.7 miles, Victor's Pizza delivers. It's more of a slice place, and again, it's been a while since I've eaten anything from there.

    1. I replied in the duplicate topic and it got deleted.

      You could call Tony's Coal-Fired Slice House, Pizza Orgasmica, Amici's, and Escape from New York about delivery to the hotel.

      Pizzeria Delfina makes small pies only so you'd need more of them.

        Escape from NY has really gone downhill in the last couple years.

      2. Escape From New York? Didn't the poster ask for something pretty good? LOL

          It's pretty good if it hasn't been sitting around.

            and especially good after a couple of drinks ;)

        2. Tommasso's doesn't deliver but it is very nearby

            Tommaso's delivers through Waiters on Wheels.

            If you need the pizzas during rush hour, nearby doesn't mean fast.

              I can always count on you to set me straight, Robert.

            1. sbp, try the Nob Hill Café, 1152 Taylor Street. It's a few minutes away from the Fairmont. Unfortunately, no delivery. Enjoy your dinner event!

              1. I need more than a couple.

                1. Tony's delivers but that could get expensive. Call at least a day in advance if you plan to order 20 pies.

                  1. Once again, thanks to all. We're also considering Del Popolo, since they would essentially come to us. Have heard good things, but I trust CH'ers

                      Do you have a spot on private property where they could park the truck?

                      1. re: sbp

                        Another mobile option is Casey's Pizza,

                        As RL mentions, finding a level spot for the truck to park could be a challenge.

                        1. re: Melanie Wong

                          Level's another issue. I was thinking of legal. I don't believe the city issues one-day permits for food trucks in that neighborhood.

                            The State's rule for mobile vending is 30-minutes in one spot. If its a catered gig, e.g., not selling to the public, then then one just has to adhere to the posted parking limits.

                            1. re: Melanie Wong

                              Interesting. In that neighborhood it would still be quite a trick to get enough spaces in one place to park the truck.

                              Aren't food trucks typically $1500 minimum?
