    If waiters with fake accsents posh accommodations, and we make everything menus is you're thing, then this place is not for you. If a charming authentic old Italian neighborhood digs with great food is what brings the foody out in you then this is the place. The Paccheri Al Forno was fantastic paired with a bottle of Super Tuscan Travalda. definatly good value for money.If its hot out, eat outside no air conditioning but its S.F.

    Close your eyes a second - you could be sitting in a small family owned restaurant inside the walls of Lucca - Baonecci is that authentic. The single negative was that finding a parking spot at 8:00 pm anywhere near this busy little gem of a restaurant was close to impossible, expensive and/or nerve wracking. Lesson learned. Next time - I'll take a cab, not sweat the logistics and enjoy my evening even that much more.

    LOVED this place! Very cute and intimate, but you weren't too close to anyone else in the restaurant. The wine was decently priced and very tasty! The pizza was delicious and we started with the burrata salad, which was equally as good. Service was attentive and extremely nice; sometimes the service takes a while but it isn't meant to be a rushed dinner so I didn't find it to be a problem at all. Overall, I highly recommend this place! Great to catch up with a friend or for a romantic night out!

On our most recent visit we tried the prosciutto pizza that was as good as the ones we have had in Italy! Service is attentive and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

    too bad - cute place, food was good, but service was awkward and unfriendly - server did not care that we were too hot, served us lukewarm water since we didn't buy the bottled water - he begrudgingly brought us one glass of ice, was not attentive at all, before, during or after the meal. I had to get up to pay my bill. When we got up to leave, suddenly the owner and the server were more friendly than they had been the entire time. My wife, who routinely tips 20% and 15% for terrible service suggested 10%. The only decent and friendly service was from the busboy. Too bad - food was pretty good - super thin pizza. Pasta was good. Portions small. Overpriced for basic 'high-end' pizza/pasta restaurant.

    Delicious New York-style pizza! The crust on the pizzas is whisper thin and cooked to perfection. The toppings were fresh and delicious. The pear salad is also not to be missed. We had a wonderful night at Baonecci celebrating our daughter's 13th birthday with her.

    Baonecci is a little find in little Italy! It has great food, good wine, and the service is right on. You definitely need to make a reservation as it's a small place and fills up fast. I think they have some of the best Pizza in Noth Beach. It's definitely Roman style so thin flakey crusts, and wonderful fresh toppings. They is no heavy sauce involved. We've had lasanga, egg plant parmesian, plus a few different pastas. Every thing has been great. So make a reservation and enjoy!

    We were in San Francisco for the marathon and found this restaurant through Yelp! It was close to the marathon expo so we agreed to try it. We were not disappointed. The food was good and priced reasonable for San Francisco. Average dinner was around $16. We will come back again when we are in town.

    Great place and very accommodating. Last minute trip to SF for a long weekend with my wife and needed a place to eat after the Giants lost. Open Table listed them and there was room available. Sat us right down and they were very friendly the food was good and atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Yes we will go back.

    A friend of mine introduced me to this restaurant when I first moved to SF a year ago, and it is the one place I continue to go back to. Bottom line: if you haven't been, you need to go. And also, the pizza is beyond, I mean, BEYOND. It's a place where you feel very at home, and I love that.

    The food was amazing. The pizza is way better than Tony's down the street! My only issue with our experience was how hot it was in there. I was sweating just sitting there and downing as much water as possible. AIr conditioning would be a great investment for such a packed restaurant!

    Dined on 6/26/2014
    Upon entering I was excited because of all the good reviews on several sites and then saw pictures of Tuscany and Lucca thinking maybe we would experience some of the food memories of Italy. We got pizza with sausage and onions-the onions too strong. I enjoy thin crust, but this crust was so thin it lacked any tooth. The eggplant parm was good, not impressive and not cheesy. Good salad, clean dressing. The service was attentive and personable. While the meal was fine, it was not the special find I was hoping for. Not sure why everyone else gave 4.5 stars, in SF??? Liked the homey, family feel.

    The food here was good, but we were surprised that it was so downscale. Not a lot of ambiance, and you can't see that from the reviews and the photos, so we were expecting something a bit nicer. But we got a table by the window with good food and good service.

    If this is the best pizza in SF, I quit. Nice enough staff and fast enough service. White house wine was barely palatable. Margherita pizza was too thin and short on flavor and cheese. Lasagna was excellent. Might be worth trying again if there weren't so many other choices around in SF. I felt misled by overly positive reviews.
