Zero Zero is a neighborhood gem!
Great atmosphere and love the little bar area immediately to the left of the front entrance. I've had both lunch with a girlfriend and late night drinks with friends here, both to equal fun and satisfaction. The lunch menu is a great combination of generally Italian & pizza dishes with a creative flair. Arugula salad was a delightful surprise with its zesty and light dressing. We had the Fillmore pizza and it was solid -- delicious and crust was well baked. I'd definitely recommend this place for a fun, casual dinner and/or drinks spot in SOMA. Love the interior décor too.

Great Dinner and Drinks
I love everything on the menu! We ordered the arugula salad, meatballs and the chickpea bruschetta. It was a warm night and we all ordered the sauvignon blanc on tap, surprisingly good!
The waiter was super attentive but didn't pressure us.
I've been before and gotten a few of the specialty cocktails that were all amazing!

tasty food. good ambience
Nice tasty good, good ambiance, prompt service. Needs reservations though, else waiting time is higher. Our waitress was very sweet - my wife didnt like the vodka she ordered and we didnt get charged for it. The only small gripe, if at all, is that the pizza was over-baked - I looked around and found almost all of them over-baked. Wonder if its their style!

Tasty food, fun place for groups
Delicious Mason pizza and arugula and strawberry salads plus an extensive wine list, including wines on tap. My girlfriends and I wanted to order salads for our entrees and pizza to share but the waiter discouraged that, saying that the salads were large, intended to be shared among 2-4 diners. We laughed when the salads came because we could easily have eaten them one per hungry gal! Regardless, this is a fun spot in an otherwise non-happening location w/easy street parking after 6. I'd come again.

The lighting is real dim at night which some people go for .... I would rather see, but overall a great restaurant with good food and fun cocktails!

Above and beyond service
The staff was outstanding as to make us feel welcome on our anniversary. They took care of us and were very professional. Everything we had on the menu was delicious. I would recommend them to anyone.

Having the pizza for lunch
Having the pizza for lunch made me want pizza for dinner.

We lived and traveled in Europe for years and are pleased that we're beginning to be able to get pizza here that's as good as it is in many places in Italy (though not as cheap!). Zero Zero is among our most favorite. Love the broccoli antipasti and the hot fudge sundae half portion (enough for 2!). It can get a bit noisy, but, a table in the front corner is fine.

Great service at the Bar
Service at the Bar was great. Bartender were very friendly and accomodating.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place came highly recommended from some friends. We were in town at a business meeting and made reservations. I would highly recommend reservations because the wait time was almost 2 hours without reservations. With reservations from OpenTable we were seated within minutes.
The service was ok. I think they were understaffed so I gave them a little slack. The food was amazing. I highly recommend both the pasta and pizza. We shared at our table. When it was time for dessert, we had the soft serve ice cream. I recommend you put olive oil and sea salt on it. It sounds weird, but the taste is great! We enjoyed our time, but the restaurant was extremely loud so we had a hard time carrying on a conversation.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Zero Zero is always dependable and always great. We had the pork belly (we always do), which is good as always. We had the squash blossoms, which were done tempura-style and were absolutely amazing. We then had a pasta which was great and the seasonal pizza (white pizza with broccoli and sausage) which my wife loved and I was ambivalent about -- the crust itself was very very nice, but I didn't like the toppings.
We will keep coming back!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our fourth time back - we keep bringing different friends to share the experience. Just like always, everything was wonderful. We really love your pizzas! We will be back!
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
good pizza, fun desserts
Very good salads and pizza. Soft-serve build your own sundae for dessert! Good wine list and great service. Overall very nice night out.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best sauce great bar tender
Pizza and pasta is all about the sauce. The pizza sauce has a soft tang while the pasta with pancetta sauce is more robust and thick. You can tell the pasta sauce has been reduced and has been cooking for a while. Fresh pasta cooked to perfection! Delicious. Randy the bartender gave great service.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Drink and a salad
Excellent spot and reasonable prices. Especially liked the trout salad and they had some innovative cocktails.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
good as always
no, make that awesome. the pork belly wasn't as good as the last time we went (just 1 week earlier!), but the dish was still great.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the service and the food! Pizza and dessert (soft serve ice-cream) was nice
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pizza hang out place
This restaurant is fun and the food is great. Make sure you have a reservation though as the line gets long.

Not your usual pizzeria
Food was very yummy. Stuffed squash blossoms were divine. Pork belly "dumplings" were tasty but did not fit the description of "dumpling". Pastas were decadently rich. The three pizzas ordered exceeded the expectation of the most critical member of our group. Service was attentive until it was time for dessert.....then, it took a while to get the dessert and retrieve our bill and leftovers. We had a nice corner booth for the 5 of us and the noise level was just tolerable. If you get there before 5:30pm, street parking is available nearby but it is nice to know valet is offered.

my third review for Zero Zero
... and that shows how much I love this restaurant. First time I've been for brunch though, and it was excellent. Had the chicken thighs and waffles and that was simply amazing (I will definitely be back), and my wife had the roman style dumpling. And that leads to my one quibble, which was that the roman style dumpling is actually the pork belly appetiser from the dinner menu. We love it, absolutely (we always have that when we go for dinner), just that we were expecting something more like gnocchi or ravioli.
Service was great, the server got one of the dishes wrong but fixed that quickly, and then he comp-ed the ice-cream we ordered.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious but loud
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and service, but it was too loud to hold a conversion without shouting.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lively, with great pizza
All our party enjoyed this restaurant - really good food and excellent service
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location for lunch or dinners - excellent service:)
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went a few days ago and the duck pasta was so good that we had to go back. This time we ordered their duck pasta and their pasta with the proscuitto bread crumbs. It was amazing. We had their pizza the first time around and I didn't really think it was that great but it seems to be popular as almost every table ordered one.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Couldn't hear...but ate well!
Everything we ordered from bruschetta to pizza and pasta to cocktails and desserts was delicious - but (at least upstairs where we were seated) was quite loud. We were straining to hear each other at our table of 4. That said - we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to go back (though might see if the booths downstairs provide a bit more sound proofing!)
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice food good service
Had a great time. Was interested in trying the pizzas. They did not disappoint. Good crust and good topings. Had my kids, who made a mess of the table and they were very nice about it.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, our waiter was extremely accommodating and had a great personality. We ordered a margarita pizza which was quite tasty; good dough and very good sauce. We all ordered pasta (a total of three dishes) and my friends were all happy, mine on the other hand was good but so spicy that I couldn't finish, and I usually love spicy food. All in all it was a fun place for a birthday celebration.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great little SOMA joint
Love this place. The pizza is incredible as is the pork belly and all of the salads and sandwiches.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent work lunch
One of the best Caesar salads I have had in SF, just the basics which is where so many other restaurants go wrong. Very good pizza. Worth it.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun evening with a close friend.
Had a great time catching up with a friend of mine. We had a lot to discuss. It was easy to hear one another and we did not feel like we had to whisper. Service was awesome.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pizza and helpful staff
It's hard to ask for more, isn't it? I went to Zero Zero for lunch on a weekday afternoon, after the noon rush. Although I had made a reservation, there were plenty of available tables. The staff was friendly and helpful. The wine list was pretty comprehensive, with a good selection of Italian wines by the glass (as well as by the bottle). Most importantly, the pizza was the real thing (i.e. what one gets in Italy). I'd also recommend the olive appetizer. It was a generous serving of a variety of warm olives, and almost a meal in itself. I'll be back.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I always come here on our birthdays, we love it and the great seasonal pizzas they offer that put a whole new spin on the traditional pie!
Also holy hannah does their dessert (ice cream selection with toppings etc) beat any ordinary birthday cake!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty thin-crust pizza...the one with fresh crams was fantastic!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Margherita Extra Pizza was great as was the warm Olives!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The rigatoni with duck confit, bacon, sweet onions, and fennel was pure heaven!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely going back!! Lunch
Definitely going back!! Lunch was delicious, especially the avocado bruschetta. I want to have the pizza next time - many kept passing and they looked so good!!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
decent, not blown away
The salad with homemade cheese and bread was incredible. The crispy duck was, eh, well, just eh. The bloody mary was delish and so was the soft serve. The brunch pizza was okay, but not what I expected from a place specializing in pizza.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and delicious food. The Crudo was a delicious tuna starter. The pork belly was very flavorful and the poached egg completed the entrée. The Margherita Extra pizza with Buffalo mozzarella hit the spot! I highly recommend zero zero. I was on a business lunch and our server was very professional about when to offer service and when to allow our conversation to be uninterrupted.

Went on a Saturday evening
Went on a Saturday evening at about 8pm with a reservation and didn't have to wait and was seated immediately. Seating is fairly close with quite a few banquet style tables, so if you're looking for a romantic, private atmosphere, you won't get it here. Ordered a few appetizers: the arancini and the treviso bruschetta. Both were absolutely fantastic, thankfully my date and myself both enjoy garlic, as the aioli with the arancini is very potent. Wanted some input on some of the italian red wines and unfortunately the waiter knew absolutely nothing about any of them. Ordered the special pizza which was great and the waiter accidentally brought another pizza out and couldn't take it back. Great service, fun atmosphere, excellent food.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and Service
We had a wonderful time at ZeroZero on Monday. The food and wine was fanstastic. Our server, Iain, was know knowledgeable and offered perfect wine pairings with our food. We'll definitely let friends know about ZeroZero!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were a group of five and ordered two salads and three pizzas. The autumnal salad was delicious as well as the caesar's salad. The pizzas were Castro, Margherita and the special with brussels sprouts. All were delicious. We were seated by the kitchen and the slapping of the dough was a little loud but everything else was great. Our server was always there when we needed anything.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic food, excellent drinks
The pizzas at Zero Zero are simply insanely good and perfectly crispy. You can't go wrong with any of them. Their antipasti selection is solid as well. The drinks are top notch as well, being really tasty and almost too drinkable. A solid spot for special occasions; one of my favorite places to go in the city.
One downside is that we were seated at a semicircle table which was not exactly conducive to conversation, but this is just a personal preference. If you'd prefer a different table, I'd note that in the reservation. The pizzas will admittedly take up most of the table space, though!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and reasonably priced.
The pizza was amazing and everything else was very good. No complaints on food or service but it was a little noisy.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Zero Zero = Ten
Once again, it was a delightful experience at Zero Zero. Three of us ordered different meals and shared. Each of us enjoyed our samples of the meals. It was a simple margarita pizza, a pasta (pope's hats filled with squash), and a dinner salad. We also enjoyed delightful wine. The service was excellent and, once again, the sum of the events at Zero Zero was a perfect Ten. This place simply invites you to return with all that it is.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service
Even during the insanity that is Dreamforce, waitstaff were friendly and efficient. So many interesting menu items, it was hard to pick.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
My favorite chicken and waffles
Not sure I need to say anything more than this place makes my favorite chicken and waffles in San Francisco. The chicken is boneless with a flavorful, crunchy crust, and the waffles are sweet and airy. Of special note is the bacon, which is tremendous - not too thick (like jerky) but with tons of flavor.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Zero is a Ten!
Amazing and creative drinks and I am picky. The top shelf was more than worth it! The food was delicious and artistic. The service wonderful - thank you Keith ! The salads were not big but delectable! This is my first review!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Some of the best pizza in SF
Really awesome pizza. Crust is perfectly baked. Fresh and high quality ingredients. Sauce is infused with flavorful herbs. Very tasty.
Definitely one of my favorite pizza in SF. And the prices are very reasonable too.

This restaurant was so much more than we anticipated, in every way. Amazing food, beautiful location, and a really fantastic cocktail menu. We can't wait to go back!
