A16

415-771-2216  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 2355 Chestnut St, San Francisco, CA 94123

CUISINE: Pizza, Italian, Farm to Table, Wine Bar

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS

Named after the main highway in the Campania region of Italy, the Marina District's critically exalted A16 restaurant features upscale Neapolitan cuisine and wood-fired pizzas in a casual, well-designed environment. Cork walls and cozy bay windows attract well-dressed patrons to the bar area — a boisterous place to see and be seen with a date — while larger dining parties tend to migrate to the back, near the open kitchen. Owner and wine director Shelley Lindgren's wine list features some obscure choices, and she and her staff are able to give knowledgeable advice to both amateur and experienced wine enthusiasts. The seasonal menu features simple pizzas such as the Funghi with mushrooms, smoked Mozzarella and Grana Padano cheeses, dandelion greens, garlic, oregano and olive oil. Pastas have included ricotta gnocchi and squid ink tonnarelli, and entrees have included local halibut with roasted garlic, zucchini, squash blossoms and basil Genovese. 



Beer and wine available. Serving lunch Wed–Fri, dinner nightly.

"It was clear from the start that the kitchen is in good hands, whether the dish is an appetizer of braised octopus blended with mildly spicy Italian roasting peppers, fingerling potatoes that match the size of the seafood chunks, black olives and fleshy purslane; or one of the four pastas, such as black pepper fettuccine tossed in a meat sauce enriched with pork trotters, dandelion greens and Pecorino riserva."
