John was one of the best servers I’ve met—he made our little reunion of family & Cal friends one for the ages.

The service was outstanding. The food was really good, except the fried olives which were disappointing.
The outdoor dining set up is great. I’d go back ASAP

Pizza was amazing . Sides were both very fair, potatoes under cooked. They’ve lost their pasta chef so only had pizza and a couple of entrees. My husband also said his halibut wasn’t great. We’ve gone to both SF and Rockridge locations many times and been very impressed, I would say it is slipping for sure (but pizza still awesome).

It’s the little things like:
-The fact you carry Hayman’s gin for Sharon’s martini.
-You brought extra crostini (without being asked) for the burrata.
-You brought a generous helping of arugula for me on the side bc, unlike me, Sharon is averse to greens on her pizza (as if!).
Yep… the details… they matter. Especially right now… it kinda felt like love. So, thank you. 💕

We sat in their Parklet and were really comfortable and cozy on a cool night. The food was amazing! One of the dishes we had was their melon salad and every bite was sweet and delicious. Cocktails were beautiful and so worth it. I made our reservation for 8:45 - one of their last slots - but we didn’t feel rushed at the end of our meal - which is classy and appreciated. They left the propane heater for us even as the packed up the others around empty tables. Overall, a lovely experience and we can’t wait to go back.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants to go to. The food last night was subpar. The pizza was still decent however everything else was not of good quality. We ordered the salads and both were very watery with very little flavor. The waiter talked me into getting the special of the day which was a pork pork chop. It came out extremely dry and overcooked. It looks like they scaled down the menu as well, we hope that they can prove upon what we thought was a great restaurant.

Love A16! Fantastic Italian (and others) wine and cocktail offerings. Casual but very refined pizzas, apps, and entrees. Hip decor and music. Staff loves product. Maybe a little loud for some.

This has always been a favorite of ours, but we were very disappointed with the service. The food was brought to half of our party. Seven minutes later the other two entrees showed up. Then we had to wait even longer for our Contorni/sides. They also ran out of three of their red wines. The food was very food.

Great salad (kohlrabi), pizza (funghi), and steak. Lots of flavors that made for much happiness. Outdoor tables separated by fabric dividers making for safe-feeling dining. A really enjoyable dining experience!

A16 has amazing food and service!! Every pizza I have tried has been so tasty, especially the pomodoro, and the the calamari blew my mind!! The fried olives are also a must.
The staff is all so friendly, including right when you arrive to the restaurant at the hostess table!
The gelato is also always so fresh and changing with the season so they always have what you are craving! Highly recommend!

A16 Rockridge has been one of our favorite restaurants for years but we were so disappointed with our recent experience. The pizzas are smaller, the staff is not as stellar and it just seems like a different place. Sadly, I think we will no longer be regulars.

Nice to eat inside with limited seating. I had heard that pre-covid it could be quite noisy, but it was quiet and relaxed, which was quite nice. Food and service were excellent. Great cocktails. A little pricier than I think it needs to be for what it is, but delish nonetheless.

I have dined at A16 more than a dozen of times and this was a disappointing experience. They did not have any pastas on the menus except for a pork lasagna and a veggie lasagna. And those were sold out when we dined. I was told that their pasta machine broke down several months ago and they have not replaced it. I know that it has been a tough 15 months, but I thought that was a lame excuse. They could purchase fresh pasta from Market Hall at very least. I am not sure when I will be back

A16 Oakland/Rockridge has outdoor booths that are roomy and airy. Food is as good as it has been prior to the pandemic. I had the pork chop and roasted potato/cauliflower contorni. The pork chop was huge and well cooked, super flavorful with good accompaniments (arugula, hazelnuts) and the roasted potato/cauliflower was a nice side dish. My friend is vegan and they were able to make a mushroom pizza with no cheese and the roasted asparagus and potato/cauliflower made a nice meal. Overall, great experience.

The food plain and simple was delicious. What we had a problem with is that we were the first people in the restaurant, and the service was meh. We waited for about 15 minutes before anyone recognizing us or taking our drink order. They also added a piece on the receipt titled "8 or more 20% charge" which was confusing because there were only two of us. I fully support an automatic 20% service charge, but they need to rephrase it on the receipt so as to not confuse people.

The outdoor table for 4 closest to the bar next door got too noisy when the bar patrons got to their second or third drinks! Otherwise it was such a pleasure to eat an excellent meal served to us with respect for distance but without losing charm and hospitality. Accessing the menus through QR codes taped to the tables was clever and a great way to avoid handling previously circulated menus. The kale salad and the trout were delicious!

Beware there is a 20% gratuity added to the bill for a party of 2. Table was never cleaned, no refills on drinks, no change of plates after appetizers, pizza came late, no dessert offering and she didn’t even ask us if he enjoyed the food. The busboy should get promoted to a server. The worst dining experience of 2021 for us and we will not be coming back.
