Gialina Pizzeria, SF report w/ pics

hhc | Dec 15, 200809:51 PM     5

First time at Gialina Pizzeria. It's close to Glen Park Bart station which was great since the shuttle dropped us of at Glen Park Bart station & we could walk here.

Their signage is bad from the street at night. It's a tiny sign on the window lower left, they are next to Sol Gym. Cross street is: Kern.

We tried these things:

Roasted squash appetizer $8 - I thought it was just ok, 3 roasted squash, some beans, some cheese on top. Not something I'd pick normally, friend wanted a squash pizza but I killed that idea so I compromised.

The 2 tables next to use both got salads for an appetizer so I'd pick that instead since both salads looked Good.

Atomica- tomato, mushrooms, mozzarella, spicy chilies & red onions $15. I liked the thin crust pizza. Not enough toppings for me and the pizza was kinda droopy when I lifted it up to eat it. There's 6 slices total - so go with a small eater or get 2 pizzas! Parmesan cheese in a tiny container & red chili peppers on the side too. I recommend to ask for more of both!

Desserts we didn't get were priced from .50 - $9.

One unisex bathroom in the back. Longish walk once inside to a toilet & the smallest sink..like the kind you see in airplanes.

Our total $23 + $1.96 tax = $24.96 before tip. Four tiny pieces of Italian candy given with the bill. Credit cards taken.

Next time to try:
Soft Buckwheat Polenta w/ sauteed rapini greens $ spicy chilies $7.75
Wild Nettles w/ pancetta, red onions & aged Italian provolone $15
Potato w/ applewood smoked bacon, roasted onions, sage & gorgonzola $15

**Gialina will be closed Wed. December 24th and will reopen Sat. January 3rd at 5pm**
