Rating: Great pizzeria +
We needed to seat a party of 13 including two young children in San Francisco at the last minute and so we ended up in this castro new-style pizza joint. This is the kind of reinvented American pizza that came out of New York 7-8 years ago. Fusing Cal pizza back with Neapolitan influences. I have to say it’s a good movement and Starbelly did a great job.
An inexpensive Rosso from the list.
“house made chicken liver pâté, buttered bread, sweet onion marmalade & grain mustard.”
“house cut fries with three dips.”
“warm calamari, giant butter beans, onions, cilantro & citrus caviar.”
“butternut squash dumplings, sage, brown butter & shaved bucheret.”
“burrata di stefano, grilled bread, prosciutto and basil.”
“grilled lamb meatballs., dried cherries & pistachio, minted greek yogurt.”
“Pt reyes blue cheese, market pears, roasted onion & arugula.”
“house made chorizo, sunny eggs & cilantro pizza.”
“Pt reyes blue cheese, market pears, roasted onion & arugula with added prosciutto and salami.”
“Prather Ranch burger, house cut fries & pickle, grilled sesame bun.”
This meal was straightforward, but immensely enjoyable.
