The queen of Dogpatch dining, this airy, light-filled cafe draws a relaxed crowd with its outstanding seasonal fare, great wines & congenial service. I like to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen, with a salad & a thin crust pizza (the Bianca is lovely).
I love bringing out-of-town visitors to this restaurant. It may be hidden away in Dogpatch, but is so worth the trek. Stunning space (chic and artsy but not too-too), the food is market-fresh and homey, and I really enjoy the well-selected wine list. Great for lunch: some of the city's best salads!
Creative pizzas, fresh ingredients, great lattes – I once thought that a sunny-side-up egg on a pizza would be gross, but Piccino changed my mind. The special pizzas are always creative and fresh, the pastries are great --the almond cake is awesome. The service there has always been prompt and friendly -- they treat everyone like a neighbor. Wine selection and menu are limited, but I've never had a bad meal there. The biggest downside is that the seating is very limited.
Great pizza, unbelievable pastries! – I stumbled upon this great find a few months ago and have found myself going back there numerous times. I love their take on thin crust pizza. Their ingredients are incredibly fresh and seasonal. There are some interesting and unusual wine selections as well. The baked goods are wonderful. Great coffee, too.
ambiance,expensive tiny bites, great coffe – I like the location and the small ambiance even though we had to move from the tiny table (too uncomfortable) to the tiny bar. The menu is "piccino" (small in Italian). I read so many good reviews about their pizza and I have to tell you that I was disappointed (I am Italian,moved here 3 years ago). Sorry this is not the authentic Italian pizza. The crust is way too thin, our pizza was really dry and too crispy (because overcooked). The tomatoes sauce was good even though the mozzarella had no flavor. We had a salumi antipasti for 10$ and our plate looked too empty. I like the thin bread (which we call from Sardegna). For dessert we had cookies with a small moka and a almond cake,dessert was a plus. Overall it was an expansive dinner for tiny bites (mini pizza 12 $ too expansive) I will probably go back for breakfast and definitely for their blue bottle coffee. I loved the young ambiance even though service should be more friendly. It is always a plus to greet customer with a smile.
Thin crust pizzas, salads, Blue Bottle coffee!! – What a find!! I can walk to this new cute spot in Potrero Hill/Dogpatch. It?s a great place to sit outside under nice trees and people watch while enjoying some of the great food they serve. My favorite so far has been the Pepperoni pizza, the Blue cheese salad and had a great bottle of white wine along with it. It?s also a coffee bar that serves great Blue Bottle coffee, which is hard to find. The hours are convenient and the staff is really friendly.
Cozy cafe in Potrero Hill is part coffee bar, part Tuscan lunch stop. – In Short
There may only be seating for a few inside, but Piccino's main draw is a handful of tables that line the sidewalk under a couple of the neighborhood's towering sycamore trees. There patrons can enjoy a cup of individually dripped organic Blue Bottle coffee and an item from the short menu of fresh seasonal dishes with an Italian flair, such as polenta with apples, rosemary and creme fraiche.
