And, as any Italian restaurant should, Piccino boasts an impressive wine list and coffee bar.

7. Nob Hill Cafe 1152 Taylor St, San Francisco, CA 94108 (Nob Hill)

This Italian mainstay's a Nob Hill (obviously) favorite for classics like veal piccata and chicken parm, along with the requisite selection of pizzas and pastas (try the gnocchi bolognese). Come brunch you'll find Caprese scrambles and prawn and avocado omelettes, but you won't find reservations at any time of day, so plan accordingly.

8. Pizzeria Delfina 2406 California St, San Francisco, CA 94115 (Pacific Heights)

Just as popular as the Mission original, Pizzeria Delfina in Pac Heights doles out serious, line-inducing pizza in a larger space (the Mission restaurant is 600 sqft). The menu includes antipasti, veggie small plates, and a few pasta dishes, but you're really there for the Neapolitan pizza. You can't go wrong with any of the pies, but the clam and prosciutto are some crowd favorites. Be prepared to wait for a table, especially on weekend afternoons and nights.

10. Pizzetta 211 211 23rd Ave, San Francisco, CA 94121 (The Richmond)

This tiny pizzeria in Outer Richmond is a true neighborhood gem. The simple menu features tomato, mozzarella, basil, and pepperoni personal pizzas plus a rotating selection of special pies that change weekly based on what's in season. The cozy bistro space only has four tables, so chances are you'll have to wait in line if you come at peak meal times (ex. 7pm).

11. Pizza Orgasmica 2 Embarcadero Ctr, San Francisco, CA 94111 (Financial District)

The FiDi location of this famed SF pizzeria is doling out delicious 'zas to cure any crazy night out. Create your own pie or go for one of the many wittily named Orgasmica classics. There's the Menage A Trois with five (count 'em, FIVE!) kinds of cheese; Doggie Style with pepperoni, salami, and ground beef; or the Aphrodisiac with cream sauce, scallops, shrimp and salmon.

12. Tony's Coal-Fired Pizza & Slice House 1556 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94133 (North Beach)

Slice House is the by-the-slice outpost next door to Tony's Pizza in North Beach. It's a reliable spot for a quick slice, and if you've got a few minutes to wait, the meatball sandwich is a must. It makes a good split with a friend, in which case you might still opt to get a slice to go with it anyway.

13. All Good Pizza 1605 Jerrold Ave, San Francisco, CA 94124 (Bayview)

All Good is exactly that -- their pies are deliciously crispy and juicy, with savory and spicy toppings (everything from prosciutto, pineapple, and kale, to caprese and mushroom) that will complement any craving. And if you're not feeling like a spherically-shaped carb load, you can enjoy many of the same toppings on a panini.

14. Flour + Water 2401 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94110 (The Mission)

The pizza and pasta at Thomas McNaughton's Mission gem has consistently attracted a full house since opening in 2009. The Neapolitan-style pies are nothing short of excellent, and though the flavors change daily, you can expect a classic Margherita and meatier pizzas like salumi with Mangalitsa pancetta, stracciatella, broccoli rabe & Calabrian chili. And then there's the pasta. In a perfect world, you'd try each one on the menu and luckily, Flour + Water has a pasta tasting menu.

16. Una Pizza Napoletana 210 11th St., San Francisco, CA 94103 (Soma)

The first thing you need to know about Una Pizza Napoletana is that it only sells pizza. Pizzamaker Anthony Mangieri set up this SOMA power-house after conquering New York and New Jersey, and his 12-inch personal pies consistently rank on San Francisco's top pizza lists. The Apollonia, named after his daughter, is topped with eggs, parmigiano reggiano, buffalo mozzarella, salami, basil, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper. It's downright amazing, but it's only available on Saturdays.

19. Carmel Pizza Company 2826 Jones St, San Francisco, CA 94133 (Fishermans Wharf)

Carmel Pizza Co. is the project of a couple with 20 years of Italian culinary study in Tuscany, and, man, has it paid off. The stationary, cherry-red pizza trailer somehow houses a wood-burning oven that churns out delicious pies in only 5 minutes. Suggested topping combinations include the post-meal-gum-requiring sausage-pepperoni-onion and the buffalo milk mozzarella.

20. Gioia Pizzeria 2240 Polk St, San Francisco, CA 94109 (Polk)

Hopping across the Bay and into Russian Hill, this Berkeley-born parlor's just set up shop in an upscale, NY-style storefront (white subway tiles, wood accents, iron chandeliers), where it's firing up thin crust-deliciousness like the Julian (sweet and spicy prosciutto cotto, parsley, red onion, garlic, aged provolone, chili) and the Salsiccia, which's topped with housemade Sicilian sausage, pecorino, and Ryan’s Pickled Peppers -- so expect to have to fight Peter for 'em.
