Giorgio’s Pizzeria is San Francisco’s Inner Richmond District Tradition, serving to generations its classic thin crust pizzas, calzones, pastas, and salads by a super family-friendly and efficient staff.
Enjoy your delicious Giorgio’s meal while dining in our comfy dining room adorned with red vinyl booths and a grape trellis ceiling. That way you can also watch your meal being made by a small army of cooks in our exhibition kitchen. Or order ahead for timely takeout or delivery or just walk in for a quick satisfying pizza by-the-slice.
Many describe Giorgio’s as being “just like New York”. While always honored that East Coasters are so complimentary, we also enjoy the fact our Wholesome Italian Comfort Food roots go back even further–all the way to the Mediterranean island of Ischia, off the coast of Naples.
Ischia is where many credit as the birthplace of pizza many centuries ago. Indisputably, it is where Giorgio Anastasio, our founder, was born.
Giorgio brought his family’s recipes to America and opened Giorgio’s Pizzeria at the corner of Clement and Third Avenue in 1972. After some overwhelming years of operating the busy restaurant by himself, Giorgio turned to good childhood friends for help. In 1978, Contini brothers Tony and Victor took over and continued using all of Giorgio’s original recipes and pizza making techniques while mixing in some fresh flavor flourishes and making customer service the highest priority.
In June, 2013, Giorgio’s Pizzeria opened its second location in San Francisco’s Financial District, in the Crocker Galleria, at 50 Post Street.
The Contini family continues to own, operate, and manage both Giorgio’s Pizzeria locations today.
