A word from Zero Zero
Zero Zero opened in 2010 inspired by Chef Bruce Hill’s dedication to farm driven ingredients, combined with his love for wood-fired pizzas that have been nicknamed “Calipolitan”. Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle named us the French Laundry of upscale pizza, and the readers of 7x7 Magazine voted us “Best Pizza in San Francisco”. In addition to pizza, our menu showcases housemade pastas, a variety of market-fresh appetizers, and artisan soft serve. We also have two big time bars with a selection of seasonal house cocktails, beers, and 12 wines on tap.

    The food is good. Pizza was really good. The portion size for the salad is small for the price. However, the sundae for desert is a great idea. The price for the restaurant is slightly high. It would be better to be a few dollars less.

    We had a group of 8 and sat at this cool, half moon table in the middle of everything, in-between the bar & the kitchen. Our server was on it - she was good, food was phenomenal (they had GF options for me). Great wine & cocktail selection. I tried the ham plate, cauliflower & kale chips and duck pasta. For dessert I got Ice Cream drizzled with what tasted like homemade carmel & fresh warm peaches. It was to die for!

    Was looking for something around the Old Mint (5th & Mission). Had never heard of Zero Zero, but it's name came up on several sites. I loved it. The pasta dishes were very good and the pizzas looked even better. The Arancini were delicious. Lively, but the upstairs tables are far enough apart that you can have a conversation. Interesting wine list, with a lot of options (i/2 liters, wines on tap). Part of the Real Restaurants (Fog City Diner, Buckeye, Tra Vigne, etc.) group. I will definitely return.

    Went there with a group of people from work for a team member birthday. I got reservations for 6 that morning. The menu is very interesting, and the food, I thought, was surprisingly good given the descriptions... I let the co-workers order. The only issue was our server was absent for extended periods; I think this had to do more with understaffing than her work.

    Fun place, great food. There is a peculiar hand up about not having catsup. Now, if one sells fries, it is reasonable to be able to ask for catsup. Unreasonable snobbiness in a casual place. Other than that, place is great.

    I travel to San Francisco fairly often and have had the pleasure of eating here with groups on 3 occasions. The pizza is fantastic, the bar selection is great (especially for bourbon,) and the service is always phenomenal. If you haven't been here, I'd highly recommend going, then go again.

    Love this place - the pizza is GREAT, enjoyed a very lengthy bike tour of SF and popped over here to enjoy the thin crust pizza. Perfect sauce, meats / cheeses, veggies. Caesar was excellent, menu is really great, but i never look past the pizza options. Have always had great food here. Only bummer was our server forgot my beer, but the pizza more than made up for this. Check out ZERO ZERO, u will not be disappointed.

    We have been to Zero Zero several times and always happy to be back. As always our meal was excellent. We shared a Caesar salad - a little different take on it than just the traditional version - and shared the shredded duck pasta. Delicious! We finished our dinner with the soft serve ice cream with choices of toppings! All in all an excellent meal. We will be back.

    The decor is sophisticated urban, the food is very good with interesting selections as well as a variety of sizes for different appetites. We had some great appetizers and a pizza. The wait staff is laid back, service was attentive and friendly. The place gets quite noisy, both downstairs and upstairs, which is disappointing because the upstairs could be quite romantic if better insulated. Would definitely go again and have fond memories of a really nice dinner with my fella.

    My 11-year-old daughter and I split the arugula salad and pizza Margherita and it was so delicious that we practically licked the plates clean. Nice ambience and outstanding service. We had just returned from a family trip on the east coast, eating out for every meal even at some upscale restaurants, and the service at Zero Zero was, by comparison, SO much better. Even my daughter commented on the things they did differently at Zero Zero. Very attentive, timely service. The dessert menu is fun with a check-list to build your own sundae. I loved all the farmers' market type of ingredients. The olive oil cake with pluots was out of this world.

    Had a great time catching up with friends over brunch. The service was quick and accommodating. We shared a starter, salad and two entrees; plenty of food for a party of three. My favorite dish was the deep fried french toast with stone fruit preserve topped with some of the best butter ever made. We also enjoyed the arancini, chicken and waffles, and smoked trout salad. Will definitely return to try other menu options -- the pizzas looked delicious!

    We met my son and his gf here for lunch as they had been raving about ZZ. The food was fantastic! We started with Risotto Cheese nom noms (Taleggio Stuffed Arancini) with little greens and Black Garlic Aioli, and Crispy Fried Chicken Thighs topped with cheese shavings. I loved the Caraway Yogurt with the chicken. Some of us duplicated with a Fried Chicken Thigh Sandwich (1 could feed 4), while others got the Pork Belly with egg and greens -- delicious and beautiful. We also shared a Margherita Pizza that was light, fresh and flavorful. Service was top notch, friendly and super helpful with menu suggestions. Advice: leave room for dessert. You can't beat Strauss Creamery for their soft-serve and the toppings were amazing. We will return!

    The food was very good. It may have been our fault, but we didn't tell the waitress we were going to the Giants game. Anyway, they spaced out the food so much that we needed to leave before our pizza arrived. We ended up having it boxed up to go. Net, plan on allowing lots of time. The food is worth it, though.

    My parents were visiting, so I took them out to dinner at this fine Italian restaurant. It was a little cramped and very loud, but the food was great. The waiter recommended "family style," ordering two appetizers, an entree, and a pizza, all to share. Everything was great, and that was just enough for all three of us to be full. We had a bit of a hard time hearing each other, though.

    We love the pizza at Zero Zero, but increasingly find the upstairs tables uncomfortable. Even though I requested to be downstairs, we were seated upstairs. The 2 ladies next to us were loud but eating dessert. Unfortunately their dessert lasted as long as our pizza. The couple on the other side were inaudible. We ate quickly and left.

    I ended up reserving a table here twice in 2 weeks. That should say it all. But, the pizzas really are delicious, and the arugula salad which is huge is also very good. My little nephews and niece also loved the food... we came for brunch and though I was worried about how the restaurant would react to kids, it was fine. The staff was courteous and didn't make us feel less welcome because we had little kids 5 and under with us. The fried chicken and waffles were a hit.

    Took my family from out of town for a delightful brunch. Every brunch dish was delicious. I had the french toast, which was heavenly. Fried chicken and waffles scored very highly, too. Also, cocktails! Yet kid-friendly. Perhaps what was best was that it was not mobbed, plenty of room upstairs to enjoy our meal and company.

    We really enjoyed both our salad and pizza. The salad had beets, burata, and amazing dressing. We did the prosciutto pizza which was also great and so fresh. We sat upstairs and our server was 5 minutes off everything she did. Drinks, taking our order, second round of drinks, and dessert. By the end, we were fed up and just skipped dessert even after filling out the sundae checklist. Lastly, the hostess appeared super annoyed that we asked to sit one table over. To summarize, great food but restaurant needs to better manage staff

    Aside from the chicken and waffles, which are still solid, I thought the rest of the menu left a lot to be desired, including the pizza. The avocado bruschetta was dry and came as a big slab of bread, making it difficult to cut and eat. The soup was over-spiced and had to be sent back.
