I have to preface this post with I REAAAALLY have been wanting to eat here. Reaallllllyyy badly... Little Star gets great reviews everywhere, write ups in national columns, the whole nine yards. Maybe I over built it?
At any rate, their service SUCKS. Gentleman Friend and I went there to meet up with friends from SacTown, and it seemed like a great excuse to check out this place I've heard so much about. GF and I arrived first to find friends were caught in traffic, no worries. We went in to save a table, in the empty restaurant, and were seated promptly. You have to ask for water, they say because of the draught, but I'm pretty sure it's to help the bar tenders out. Our friends arrived shortly, and we places our orders (about 3:40) and had some drinks. The place started to fill up with after World Cup drunks, and one group was insanely loud... As in I could and did scream and was barely heard over them. Ok, this is THAT place. Well our pizzas didnt come till 4:30, and no mention from our server except if we wanted more drinks. Oh, so we got 2 small pizzas, a deep dish and a thin crust, and 3 tables sat after us got their pizzas first. :/ boo. Well, the pizza was meh.. I mean it's ok, but I was starving by then and it was still alright...
Hello all! It's been to long. Don't worry, much pizza has been consumed :3 recently Gentleman Friend took me to Golden Boy Pizza in Northbeach, the Italian part of town.
They serve slices, so we dove in with some combo, a vegi combo and a garlic and pesto. This is Sicilian style, so square with a deeper, spongy crust. It's deeeelightful!! I haven't had a good Sicilian slice since I left Detroit of all places, but this hit the spot. Awesome, and fun atmosphere. It's small and hot but much like a good bar or rock show, good people and great refreshments!

So here is the Everest. Its essentially a combo, with pepperoni, linguica, sausage, ground beef, mushrooms, olives, green peppers, onions, and prolly more. The bottom was crisp and light, with appropriate cheese and that lovely spiced sauce. Just looking at the pictures of this post is making my hungry. Over all, a childhood favorite, so go eat some. NOW. Even if you have to get on a plane.

So while on Cruise in Alaska (I am not over this yet :3 ) there was a pizzeria on board, with two hard working guys who stand there for 14 hours a day watching fat tourists getting fatter... Including me. Anywho, the pizza was actually pretty good! I started with the Princess Pepperoni, crispy, tasty and delightful. Everyday they had a special... And I was strong and didnt eat it everyday. Just most of them.
Red peppers, tomatoes
Fontina and ham, Buffalo mozzarella and fontina
Artichoke hearts, green pepper, and red pepper
We started our meal off with some brews from Alaskan Brewing, which is right up the road from here. I had the White, and Handsome Gentleman Friend had their Amber. mmmmm Beer.... I just have to say that beer thats as close to the source as possible, is as good as it gets. your local brewery will be the best beer youve ever had in your life. I promise. We ordered the BBQ chicken pizza, which is a delightful meal with BBQ sauce instead of red sauce, a thin and crispy crust and awesome toppings. As you can see from my picture, chucks of chicken, red onions and green bell peppers are the stars here. Over all, eat here. After getting off a cruise ship and seeing whales and glaciers.

Yesterday, as in I'm actually doing a timely updat and the day before the date of this lovely post, Handsome Gentleman Friend and I went to Giorgios! It's a lovely little place in the inner Richmond district of SF. Poor GF was feeling ill so we grabbed some slices to go, and headed back to his place for a movie marathon.
The slices are huge here, as in we needed a XL box for 4. Here I got the pepperoni (with 5 kinds of pepperoni) and I had them add some jalepeno for a kick. The crust is nice and thin, with enough strength to hold up the monster size of the thing. It has decent flavor as well. The sauce is good, and excellent cheese. As for the 5 kinds of pepperoni... I couldn't tell... But it was all a little spicy and not overly salty. Over all an excellent slice! I recommend! And at $3.50 for essentially a meal who can refuse?

Anyone who's been to San Francisco and eaten has prolly heard of, or been told they must have Pizza Orgazmica. Their a small chain around who are famous for their pizza and as of recently their own beer. So today's review is for the shop in the Embarcadero Center.
I lucked out and got a lunch special. A jumbo slice, salad, and beverage for $7. Not to shabby. They had a bunch of assorted slices up, but for science and comparison, I went with an old standby, pepperoni and olive. The crust is well flavored, and not to salty, plenty of cheese and toppings, over a very good slice! The one thing was the crust was a little tough, so ill have to go back and see if this is a policy or just a dough batch! So not extraordinary, but worth a trip. Don't let it get over hyped for ya.

We ordered the Eutropia. It involved fennel sausage, pepperoni, veggies and some meat. I forget a little as it was a few days ago. We also ordered a honey hefe and a quasar, aka their red and some beer and cheese fondue. The beers were delightful. Full bodied an flavorful. The fondue showed up next and was Swiss based which was surprising to me, but very good as well! With sourdough and fucacha breads. Last the pizza arrived.
The shape was "rustic". Honestly looked like a new chef in the kitchen. Besides its look the taste was quite nice. The crust was flavorful and crisp, and the toppings were tasty and well balanced. Sadly the sauce tasted like chef boyardi... To bad! Over all I would order pizza here again, but the beers are the stars

Hello all! The first time I was at Uncle Vito's Pizza I was less impressed with the pizza then other places around. The handsome man of man had some friends in town who reaaaally wanted to try it so we went back.
This time was a much better pizza! I think it's that the first time I ha a personal and those have to much dough. This time we got a large and it was delightful. We got half Red Eye- red bell pepper, pepperoni and red onion. And half pepperoni. It was wonderful!! Get it! Just not a personal.
This weekend Handsome and I hit up Nizarios on Geary. After getting Uncle Vito's just a few days ago for a second try (review to come, blogger keeps eating it), you'd think we'd be tired of pizza- NAY! We agreed we can both eat pizza like 3 days a week. Anywho, it was the first real rain we'd had in months, and while refreshing, I was freeeeezing as we walked into the shop. They had just opened, so we waited a bit for our slices but well worth it!!
Regular combo and hawaiian for me!!
Special combo an California chicken pesto for him!
This is a deeeelightful pizza. Crispy thicker crush, I guess a California style, which hold up all the toppings nicely. The pesto was drizzled on top of a red sauce pizza and gives a wonderful flavor profile. The regular combo is close to my favorite, with pepperoni, salami and mushrooms. We will be back!!

So this is another place that I have been trying to visit for a while, but they remodeled, changed owners, and generally had hours that were in workable... Until now :3 that handsome man of mine and I went there as a victory, for my first week of school and a shitty work day. We ordered a Berkley Special, which involved hamburger, pepperoni, linguisa, sausage, ham and bacon. Ya we're not vegitarian's. How was it? Delightful!! Crust was flavorful, with a little garlic butter around the edges that wasn't just salt and oil. With many toppings balance is important and shined through here. Cheese was appropriate and flavorful. Over all I'm totally eating here again!!

Crispy, with all of the ingrediants well cooked, not soggy at all, and there was a ton of them. the picture looks like there isnt to much food there, but thats not your usual 2 oz marinara tub, I didnt check the size but there was enough sauce and bites for me and my giant to share and be stuffed! Plus our 18 beers... Which were also amazing.
Conclusion? GO! But have a snack before... and try to go on a tuesday at noon... and wait... :3

On a side note, I love to add bacon to pizza, but don't get the dominos bacon.its obviosly fake tasting, with to much liquid smoke, and just salty bits of weirdness. sad but true. but the sausage and the slices sausage are nice, and some have artichokes, which i am a fan of if your going vegi...
On a side note someone get me one of these??
