    The highlight of the evening was our server, and I feel badly that I cannot remember his name. He was attentive, friendly, and assured our food came out in good sequence. Honestly one of the best servers I have had anywhere, just extremely friendly and personable. The food was great as well. We ordered: arugula salad, meatballs, and Margherita pizza with burrata. The salad was fresh, tasty, and a good sharing size. The meatballs had a nice meaty flavour, were tender, and accompanied by a fresh red sauce with shavings of cheese. The pizza was quite tasty with the burrata being a nice fresh touch. The outer crust was light and soft, my only complaint would be the center of the pie was a little wet and floppy. This being said it was delicious and I would order it again. It is a solid date night and I will be going back.

    Our server Eva was excellent. Very helpful, courteous and professional. A real keeper. The antipasti of Burrata and Prosciutto was very good. Our pasta dish was not good at all. The sauce was very bland, almost tasteless. Very disappointing,

    First time at A16 and we loved it. Service was first rate and kept us on time as we were eating before going to a show at the Palace of Fine Arts. The pizza and arugula salad were primo! And our waiter made an excellent Chianti choice for us. We will definitely be back!

    Not only did our server do the absolute bare minimum, but also we saw a mouse and the restaurant did nothing in response. It was so loud in the back room our party was could barely hear each other and had to yell to communicate. Food was good, but did not outweigh the rude waiter and Vermon.

    A16 is the name of a highway in the southern part of Italy. And A16 is a great restaurant, fun, and delicious food. If you like gourmet pizzas freshly cooked for you, this is your place. If you like great salads and antipasti, you won’t be disappointed. Wines are excellent by the glass. It’s high quality food. I had the beef brisket. It’s a sizable portion and a delicious entree. A16 is a wonderful, bustling restaurant for an exciting meal.

    Great pizza. Great cannellini beans. Nice salad. Great seafood ink pasta. But. Their wine list is very expensive. 50 dollar minimum wine. Which was sold out so had to get the more expensive alternative. 64. And then googled it. 18 at Whole Foods. Left a bad taste Oh. And mandatory 20% tipping. Why not just do away with tipping? I’ll go back. But. Bring my own bottle.

    I used to love A-16! Just moved back to SF after 5 years in SoCal. A-16 has lost it's food brilliance - very meh last night. Tables seem stuffed into the back half and the place doesn't seem as cool or fun. The staff and service are outstanding tho.

    The check had included a 20% tip, without our input, which was not immediately apparent. We had initially added our own 20% tip as they have a space that is marked "additional tip". We found it misleading and really off-putting.

    Met up with a couple of out-of-town business associates. We had a reservation 6 pm, but ended up getting there a lot earlier… and the host kindly seated them. The staff & service was excellent, and the food was amazing as usual. Wifey was a little jealous that I went without her, so it looks like I’m coming back for Date Night!

    A- 16 is a great SF Italian restaurant. The food is always very good, and the pizza ranks along side Montesacro. The service is friendly and also professional/ crisp. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine list. We had a great time.

    We have the Bianca pizza every time we eat here - it’s delicious! We also ordered a little gem salad that was disappointing- I guess I should have chopped up the anchovy to give it more flavor. The service was excellent.

    Down hill in the past 5 + years. Service was awful, the server left our table without a word and someone else served the 2nd half of the meal. And was rude when he was speaking to us. But don’t worry - they charge 20% service fee. No need to be friendly.
