Fodor's Review

Apparently no length of a wait can discourage locals who persevere to enjoy the legendary thin-crust, wood-fired pizza served up by Chez Panisse alum Charlie Hallowell in this rustic-chic dining room. Diners—mostly neighborhood hipsters but also young families and foodies of all ages—perch in wooden chairs with red-leather backs; weathered wood floors and brick walls peeking through the plaster create an always-been-here feel. Seasonal pizza options might include wild nettles and pecorino, or rapini and house-made sausage; don't overlook non-pizza dishes such as wild steelhead salmon with fava greens, English peas, and Meyer-lemon butter. Except on Sunday, early risers get to skip the crowds and enjoy Blue Bottle Coffee and pastries from 8 until noon.
