Farina Pizza San Francisco exterior decor

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!
