A16 is a restaurant and wine bar bringing the delicious and hospitable traditions of lively Campania to San Francisco. The chic, rustic/modernist venue is named after the motorway that transverses the South of Italy.

The restaurant features wood oven-fired Neapolitan Pizza and other specialties of Campania such as Maccaronara with ragu napoletana and house-made ricotta salata. The wine bar serves 40 wines by the glass and half bottle carafe. The list is 60 percent Italian, mostly from the South, and the other 40 percent is New World, celebrating premiere Italian varietals grown in California along with many California wines.

We mentioned in our open table reservation that this was a birthday . My husband also mentioned it to the hostess when we checked in . Nothing was fine to acknowledge the birthday. Very disappointing and we would not return

The food was good, but the service wasn't great. The margherita pizza was my favorite--that crust though!

Impeccable service from our waiter Sataya. Food was served hot, not overly salted or seasoned, just fresh ingredients. Definitely recommend the cauliflower and the loin steak. Enjoyed a reasonably priced delicious Italian red as well on Sataya's recommendation. Would probably be five stars but noise is an issue...close quarters and it's really busy in there as you'd expect.

We loved almost everything about A16 in SF. I only wish they offered more gluten free options. I advise them to include a risotto every day and or to offer GF Pasta. Also, please, please put up sound buffers so we can hear each other talk without getting a headache.

Overpriced and small portions for food that was pretty bland.

I love the food at A16, it's always a hit, but this last visit disappointed for two reasons. First, I found that the portion of pasta was small for the price. It was a pasta dish with black truffle and cocoa nibs, which was absolutely delicious, but was what I consider an appetizer size for one person for $31. Second, we were unfortunately seated next to a table of three people who were clearly drunk and crazy loud (one of the men was literally yelling) and slightly obnoxious. They bothered every table around them and the staff did nothing until the man at another table finally complained and the hostess said something to them. That worked for about 5 minutes and then they got loud again. They should have been kicked out of the restaurant for their level of inebriation and yelling. I will return to A16, like I said, the food and service is great, but maybe I'll try the Oakland location.

My visits are often hit /miss. The food quality is uneven, some dishes are great, others leave you scratching your head wondering whether it's the same team in the kitchen.

I was mentioning this to my wife on my way there and lo and behold, it happened again: one dish was excellent the pizza romana, but the pasta maccaronara had a single note of sun dried tomatoes. That said it's one of the better restaurant in the neighborhood and they have a great wine list.

Extremely loud. Wine markup is a ripoff. ($105 for a $16 retail bottle). Pizza very good. Salad hard to eat as cuts were julienne and long. I felt like a rabbit eating it.

This restaurant is completely downhill from few years ago. The music was so loud and so upbeat. The décor is so dated with christmas light still wrapped in late January. The food was just ok and the pizza seems like the best of our meal but I can easily find similar pizza quality down the block and pay cheaper price and better services and decor. The staffs are friendly but Management seems very unprofessionally, no smile or Hello while guest walk by or ask questions.
