Gioia used to have an outpost in Russian Hill, but then they moved here to open this smaller, much more streamlined spot. It’s mostly a slice shop without much seating, so you’re best off getting your food to go, which isn’t a problem because everything comes on paper plates anyway. We like the Margherita, which is topped with thick slices of tomato, but our favorite is the garlicky mushroom. Whatever you get, the crust is crispy on the bottom, chewy around the edges, and a big slice will only run you $4.25, making this possibly the cheapest and fastest place to get a bite in the neighborhood.

Mercury Cafe is a simple, low-key coffee shop in Hayes Valley. The coffee is fine, but we like the scones better. And the free wifi.

Slice House (by Tony Gemigniani)
Let's accept that we, as a city, are being collectively screwed over by Tony Gemigniani. Especially at his Slice House.
If you’re in Mission Bay, Casey’s Pizza is a great neighborhood spot for pizza and a beer.
