Trip Report Gialina Pizzeria in San Francisco

Jump to last reply

Located in the Glen Park area of S.F., this little gem serves amazing pizza and almost more amazing appetizers and side dishes.

We went last night for our fourth visit and the pizza was thin and crispy and stayed that way as it sat there waiting to be eaten. We started with the small meatball app. The meatballs are moist and the marinara sauce is perfect. We also shared the braised pork belly on a bed a Sicilian chard. What a treat this dish is! If you are there and there is anything with pork belly on the menu, order it. This is the second dish I've had that involved pork belly and whoever they get it from knows how to cure meat.

Pizzas were a Margherita that was thin, crispy and delicious. Not over cheesed or over sauced or under basiled. The other was a covered in very thinly sliced potatoes that turned into little potato chip like things, thinly sliced red onions, and was sprinkled with crispy bacon and just the right amount of gorgonzola cheese. The crust had been dressed vigoroulsy with olive oil. Again, the crust remained crispy thoughout the meal.

Dessert was Bi-Rite ice cream.

Gialina is small, does not take reservations and fills up quickly. Glen Park is an area of the city many tourists don't get to I would imagine, but Gialina is a reason to hop onto Bart downtown to the Glen Park station and have some of the best pizza in the city.
