Divisadero in Nopa is home to many fast-casual places, bars, and, of course, Nopa the restaurant. But we can’t eat a pork chop for dinner every night, or spend several hours loitering at the bar hoping to elbow our way in (both of which are things we associate with eating at Nopa). Ragazza is better for groups, better for Italian food, and better for outdoor seating than any other place in the neighborhood, and it’s popular for takeout, too. Start with some burrata, a kale salad, and meatballs, then split a few pizzas or pastas.

A16 turns out some of the best pizza in San Francisco. The small plates are close to perfect, and you can actually get a reservation. There’s no catch. Just go.
With great water views and a firepit, Bar Bocce in Sausalito could probably get away with having average food. But the food - in particular, the pizzas - make this place worth a visit.
Amarena is a small Italian spot in Russian Hill that’s great for dropping into on a weeknight for some solid pasta.
