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.

    I've been here many times with family and my boyfriend. We all love this place, the food is excellent and always fresh. I've never been disappointed in anyway. The service is always great and the restaurant itself is beautiful. I'd recommend this place to anyone!

  • Parking alert--no valet!

    Dined on 11/22/2014
    They have discontinued their valet service and the closest parking garage is 5 blocks away. Very busy streets make for impossible-to-find street parking. Food is good, but we won't be back until this is corrected. It takes an additional 20-30 minutes before and after dining to deal with your car. This requires extra time in your schedule if you have plans after dinner. The best pizza in the world isn't worth this hassle.

    You go to a restaurant for the food, correct? If that were all that I was basing this review upon, I would rate Zero Zero as exceptional. However the two times(Thursdays @ 5:30) that we have dined at this restaurant before the theater, our meal has been interrupted by very noisy tables around us. The seating is crowded and it was very loud to the point of distraction. That said, the food is delightful, unusual, and very tasty. The service is excellent, friendly, and prompt. Just be prepared...Zero Zero is NOT an intimate dining experience!

    I love coming here when I want to catch up with friends over a good meal. The pizzas are good and their appetizer chicken thigh is amazing. The one thing that baffles me is every time I get something boxed up to go, the server always forgets to bring it back to us. I get that they're busy, but what do they do with the food after boxing it? I wanted to take that home!!

  • Good thin crust pizza and nice server.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 11/12/2014
    We thought the thin crust pizza was very tasty and the salads were also very good. Our server, who was tripling as a bar tender/bar back/server in the lounge, was great and attentive. My trouble is with the 'bar scene.' It's a nice bar...I used to go there when it was Azie. But the martinis are teeny tiny and pricey. The restaurant doesn't offer a happy hour presumably because they want to promote the image of a more upscale dining experience but the place doesn't have that feel. It feels neighborhood-casual. One of my martinis had what looked like a half-chewed olive but I overlooked that. What bummed me out was when the drink came it was about half-full. I felt kinda ripped off, but it's my fault for not mentioned it. Stick with the wines on tap, at least you get a good pour. Anyway, I don't feel like this is a destination restaurant but fine if your are in the neighborhood and feel like some tasty pizza!

    The Italian cuisine here is somewhat innovative and it's done quite well. I had arancini to start. They were generously portioned and good. The ravioli entree was equally good. Service was a bit spotty. I would recommend it, but given the number of excellent restaurants in the city, I'm not sure I'd rush back.

    After several years of eating here, it's still very satisfying. I like that they've kept much of their menu intact for a long time, since it has so many excellent standard items, including the chicken thighs and the Caesar salad, and of course the build-your-own sundae, which you should definitely save room for. Tasty Italian food in generous portions, with attentive service. It's always bustling and can get a little loud, depending on where you're sitting, but it's always worth eating here.

    We visited friends in SF and they recommended we try Zero Zero. It was great. Got there early and Scott at the bar made us some delicious cocktails. Once seated, we were served by Rana who helped us pick from the many dishes we wanted to try. Starters of fried chicken thighs and brussel sprouts with pancetta were superb. And the pastas were as good as you would find in any Italian restaurants (and this is in San Francisco which is full of them!). We shared several pizzas and desserts which kept the quality culinary ball rolling. Delightful food. The wine list was very approachable and we tried a couple of the mid-priced napa cab sauvs. Whenever our next SF trip comes about, Zero Zero will be one of the restaurants on our list.

    We eat here about 4 times/year with our 2 children. The pizzas were good as usual, and the Roman Dumpling appetizer and Rigatoni with Duck was outstanding as well. My only complaint is that the music has been too loud the past 2 visits and seems louder than in the past.

    Went here to try the pizza. The Columbus pizza was not impressive--did not have the Neapolitan style crunchy bottom. In fact the pizza seemed a bit undercooked because the inside was a little chewy and difficult to cut. Service was nice, though.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in the City. The Pizza is among the best available and the pastas are simple sumptuous. The rigatoni with duck breast and pancetta was lovely. The riccota donuts with soft serve ice cream and toppings was insanely good. The only thing that would have made the meal better would have been for the pasta and pizza not to be served together, but that was our fault for not specifying the order of service we preferred.

    The food is worth the wait time, so don't give up if diners are lingering and your table isn't available. A hungry party of 3, we tried the rice balls the bartender recommended, a tomato soup, a special menu pizza, a pasta and corn dish, an on-menu pizza and salad, and a dessert. Each item as amazing as the next, with multi-levels of favor in each dish. This is a place to appreciate food flavors, so try not to mess with what the chef has carefully designed, you won't be sorry! The waiter was very friendly, fast and right on with his recommendations. After dining here, it's going to be hard to pay for mediocre food at other places. (and as a diner if you tend to linger, realize others are waiting and the staff suffers.)

    ZERO ZERO is becoming a go-to for when I have friends in from out of town. It's got a distinctly San Francisco flavor without being affected. We started with fried chicken thighs, which were quite good. I got the pork belly entree, which was pretty good, but the belly was a little too dry. The clam and garlic pizza was a big winner. But, by far the best dish was the pistachio panna cotta in the dessert course. There's a pastry chef at work here who knows what they are doing. In terms of ambiance, my only objection is that it's a bit loud, exacerbated by speakers placed above every table along the wall we were sitting at.

    It was my umpteenth visit to Zero-Zero. I've liked it every time. This visit was no different from the others. The pasta dish (handbags, for literal translation) were quite good. My friend had the pasta with duck, which he enjoyed very much. I had soup and it was delicious. He had "raw" salmon (lime juice, don't worry). We shared a panna cotta, which was lovely. Anyway, it was expensive -- there were a couple of drinks involved --- but it didn't matter. We had a lovely visit and experience

    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.

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.

    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.
