Pizza and Salad
Great place for a hand made thin crust pizza, and the salads a fresh and very good.
However, the "corned beef short ribs" had no bones and less flavor, in a bland cream sauce over shredded lettuce. Won't order those again. As mentioned by others, kids are welcomed here and some parents just let them run wild.

This was my first dinner at
This was my first dinner at Precita Park Cafe. We had The Louie as an appetizer. It was 6 large shrimp, sauteed very nicely with an avocado terrine. It was very good.For dinner we shared the Champignon pizza which was excellent. The truffle oil, mushrooms, and goat cheese were a great combo. I had the scallop risottto. I would highly reccommend but a bit on the heavy side. Their wine list is surprisingly very nice and priced very well.My husband had the House extruded rigatoni which was out of this world. The sauce is divine and they generously have a extra when we asked for it.It does have a neighborhood feel to it and the service is very good without being too invasive.

This restaurant is a great
This restaurant is a great out of the way secret at least for the moment. I didn't expect the food to be as tasty as it was since it doubles up as a sandwich place in the daytime.
We had a pepperoni pizza and champion pizza. They were both thin California style and so good. . Next time I would ask for a little more cheese. The crust was perfect.
We shared the baked chicken which was also cooked perfectly.
My gf had two glasses of the zin wine which she seemed to really enjoy. 3 zin I think
The hazelnut ice cream pie was to over the top. For the price you won't get a better deal in the mission for this quality.
The place was packed and a kind of confusing when walking in but it added to the laid back ambiance.

Very Enjoyable from start to finish
Scallop & Uni dish was par with michelin rated places at half the price. The egg was a great touch and blended very well with the other flavors on the place. I give it 5 stars.
The pork meatballs with crab. They should keep that on the menu rather than seasonal. I would forgo the crab and keep the traditional meatball plate. Very good. Meatballs were large. 4 stars
I would suggest the beet salad and buratta for a starter. The buratta was huge and creamy.
Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere was fun, upbeat and laid back. The staff were having a good time with patrons and the vibe was inviting overall.
The bicycle that sits on a shelf near the restrooms is a great touch

Good change for this spot that needed a restaurant that equaled the charm and new found vibrancy (say for the last 10 years) for this previously tired restaurant. Foodies on Bernal!

Great Neighborhood Find
My wife and I have been long time Bernal residents, and often are looking for good date night places to go. Valencia has gotten to be a bit much for us, so we are always on the lookout on the other side of the hill. We found this place and love it, great food, great service, and friendly atmosphere. It's a really nice open space too, right next to Precita Park. Awesome

Loved the food & service but
Loved the food & service but someone needs to let indulgent parents know what appropriate restaurant behavior is for children dining out. Running wild around the restaurant and bothering other patrons is not appropriate.

loved the food and service
loved the big windows, the inspiring menu, the scallops and fresh burrata were extra yummy; couples take note -- it is "kid friend," which means kid noise, chairs crashing onto the floor...not a big negative, you've just got to be prepared.
