Day 9a, 2013: Tony's Pizza Napoletana (San Francisco, CA)

DAY 9a: OCTOBER 9th, 2013

LOCATION: Tony's Pizza Napoletana (1570 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA)

ORDER: 2/3 of personal Margherita, 1 slice of a Bravada?

GUEST(S): Robin Rothman

Anyway you want it, that's the way you get Tony's!  According to their menu, this spacious North Beach pizzeria offers seven different styles of pizza and multiple ovens powered from everything from 500' F electricity to 1000' F coal.  Only at Tony's Pizza Napoletana can you order personal gourmet pizzas for the adults and a 22" New York style pepperoni for the kids.  But given the high quality, expertly prepared food with assorted craft beers and fine wines, its a great date option as well.  At Tony's, you have plenty of options - perhaps too many for a single recommendation.  I was lucky enough to score one of the 73 award winning authentic Margherita D.O.P. pies and was glad I did.  I wish I had more guests so I could have tried more pies but that will have to wait till I go back.  That's when I'll try the Coal Fired New Yorker, and the Sicilian, and the Californian style honey pie and oh, so many more.

There are limited street parking places for your car but, if at all possible, take another means of transportation.

1. Robin Rothman and I went to the Coit Tower.  It is the part of San Francisco's skyline that looks like a hose nozzle during the day and a lighthouse at night.  Apparently it was created from monies donated by Lillie Hitchcock Coit for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city she always loved.

2. We saw the "Painted Ladies" which are the townhouses that appear in the credit sequence of FULL HOUSE.

3. Robin and I both took a turn (pun intended) driving the zigzag section of Lombard Street.

4. We weren't the only ones blown away by the pizza at Tony's.  We met two Philadelphians that were in town for the week and had already visited Tony's twice.
