Why did we dine here? – Farina Pizza is a sister restaurant down the block from Farina Restaurant, in San Francisco’s gentrified Mission district. They serve dishes from Executive chef Paolo Laboa and Neapolitan pizzas by master pizzaoli, Antonio and Gennaro Langella. True Italians.
We’ve big pizza fans, having dined at the best in Naples, so we had to try them. We have avoided Farina over the years, due to inconsistent reviews on Yelp. At least we killed 2 birds with 1 stone!

Insider Tip – Come early or order takeout to avoid waiting

Location – Mission

Farina Pizza Food Picks:

Farina Pizza San Francisco bufalina pizza

Bufalina Pizza ($18) San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, romano cheese, extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil was a bit soft and runny, though flavors were good. Slightly tart tomato sauce. Edge goes to Tony’s or Una Pizza Napoletana.
Look at our review of Starita in Naples.. Tons of buffalo moz, crisper crust, only $6.50!

Farina Pizza San Francisco Contadina Pizza

Contadina Pizza ($20) Sausage, fior di latte mozzarella and sauteed broccoli was a contrast in bitter greens and excellent sausage. Soft crust again.

Farina Pizza San Francisco gnocchi

Gnocchi di patate al pesto ($15) Potato dumplings served with Genovese basil pesto is one of their famous dishes. Definitely work getting.
