I'd never cut a pizza with scissors before coming here. But with the thin, wood fired pizzas here scissors seem to make perfect sense. This place is intimate, with candles on tables, with fresh, handmade Italian cuisine. The pumpkin bruschetta with pine nuts and sage was fantastic, as was the buttery burratta. The marinara pizza (literally sauce on thin crust) was 5 stars. The sausage pizza a four (no sauce made it a bit dry). The gnocchi was so so - the pasta itself was great, but the preparation a bit bland. Good date spot. We came with 2 kids, and they were very accommodating - put us in a back patio area where we had a little space from the romantic types.

Grade A San Francisco restaurant right here. Nestled in the heart of the Marina District, A-16 is the classic first, second, or third date restaurant for you and that special someone. With dim lighting, a caring wait staff and delicious food and wine you cannot go wrong. My date and I enjoyed a pizza (complete with your own scissors) and it was filling on its own. COME HERE - you will not regret it.

Upscale Italian Restaurant with some really interesting menu options. Definitely try their signature chocolate dessert with olive oil and sea salt! Service is very friendly. Best to come early to get a table without reservation.

A first date after my own heart – he won it. Okay, not because he took us to A16 for our first official date after 11 years, but because good food and wine grease the wheels for cruising chemistry.
We were getting to know each other so why not stick to the basics? We started with the Burrata which for me is a good indicator or a parter who can indulge with good taste. Fresh, milky and gooey from the plate and off the fork to the mouth. We ordered the Margherita pizza; a good litmus test for any restaurant with a wood-fired oven that serves it on the oven. It's easy to over order here. The entrees change often as the kitchen prepares what's in season.
Come here to dine family style, seasonal Californian grown produce, rustic Italian, whether on a first date or with a large group (they have a private dining room seating 20, give or take a few).

This is my local neighborhood so, I know most of eateries in the Marina. A16 is a nice local hangout that is usually packed with the local young, hip Marina crowd. What's better than Pizza and Red Wine? Well, not much...fresh pasta, house-butchered and house-cured meats and authentic Neapolitan pizza..what's not to like. Yes, the name A16 is the highway in southern Italy in Naples. The inspiration of A16 comes directly from the Campagnia region in the south of Italy. Fughi or mushrooms, nothing like marinate mushrooms on a pizza.

It was Halloween and we treated ourselves to a nice dinner at A16 before hitting the party scenes.
We had 8:30 resos and we were seated promptly in the back of the dining room. This place is packed, noisy, but happening. It reminds me of a busy restaurant in Manhattan. Sophisticated-looking people, friendly service, and a good wine list.
Natasha and I split the Funghi pizza and the pumpkin and ricotta gnocchi. The pizza reminded me of Rome, authentic thin-crust, and very flavorable. The cheese blended well with the plentiful mushrooms. The crust was crunchy, chewy, baked to perfection. I think it is my favorite pizza in the North Bay.
The gnocchi is out of this world. It is the best gnocchi I have ever had. I love the side greens and the texture of the gnocchi. I need to go to Quince and try theirs - they are supposedly better.
Once again, I was not impressed by the dessert menu. Almond this, sorbet that . . nothing stood out. Hence, minus one star.
Service was attentive, the atmosphere is cool and modern, and they provided unlimited supply of filtered cold water in glass carafes. Nice.
Pizza, gnocchi, and bottle of Umbria wine = $70 (not bad!)
I would consider A16 as one of my top 10 restaurants in SF without a doubt.

Hands down if you want really great wine, food and overall dining experience you should head to A16 because they have an incredible wine program. A16 just also received a semi-finalist nod for their wine service from the James Beard Awards (think Oscars of food and wine). Leave it to the experts to perfectly pair your food with some of the best wines Napa/Sonoma has to offer.
