The Lunch Box transcends grade-school memories of packed lunches, opting instead to fill bellies with piping-hot sandwiches and freshly tossed salads made with local, organic produce whenever possible. Sandwich fillings such as beet goat cheese and basil aioli treat tongues to uncommon flavors, with an option for gluten-free bread. They also offer fresh salads and house-made soups to round out lunchtime meals. Additionally, baker Melissa Geraghty fills the shop with freshly made treats and completes cake and cupcake orders for parties and especially long elevator rides.
The takeout joint does not offer sit-down service, making the shop a perfect stop before a hike to Muir Woods or picnic at Stinson Beach. Additionally, a rotating menu of dinners to go ease the stress of evening meals, with pickup and delivery options available.
Extreme Pizza is not your run-of-the-mill, ma-and-pa pizza shop. Here, the cooks pile their house-baked crusts with a slew of uncommon combinations, including the ginger-peanut-sauce-marinated chicken strewn across the Kickin’ Chicken pizza, which is also topped with peanuts, green onions, swiss, fontina, mozzarella, and fresh cilantro. The Paia Pie may seem standard with pineapple and Canadian bacon, but the addition of mandarin oranges and its mozzarella-cheddar blend make it more unique than a unicorn with two horns. As an alternative to the pies, freshly baked calzones, creatively loaded salads, monster subs, and chicken wings also populate the menu.

A slanted wood ceiling and large windows lend Dario's Pizza Restaurant an airy feel, which chefs fill with the appealing scents of 28 types of pizza baking in ovens. Pies boast a variety of topping combinations, such as the Cubano's mix of sausage, pineapple, and sweet red peppers, or the Margherita's simple blend of roma tomatoes and fresh basil. For fork-twirling fare, the chefs construct heaping plates of fettuccine alfredo and spaghetti with pesto and clams, both side-kicked by homemade bread and a choice of soup or salad. A bartender supplements tasty morsels with fragrant pours of draft beer and an assortment of red and white wines. Meals take place along the first floor's wooden tables, or upstairs, where a lofted area hoists homey décor and longer tables for private events or an invisible friend's extended family.

Eyes feast on views of the San Francisco skyline from Servino's waterfront dining room and patio; though the restaurant’s staff strives to capture the vibrant spirit of a place a bit farther away. Inspired by the rustic cuisine and cozy hospitality of southern Italy, Servino embraces the homestyle warmth of Mediterranean culture while incorporating as many local ingredients as possible. Light from a wood-burning brick oven flickers in one corner of the kitchen, roasting pizzas topped with combinations such as crimini mushrooms and white truffle oil or buffalo mozzarella and green garlic. Homemade pasta dishes and hearty seafood entrees round out the menu of trans-Atlantic comfort foods. With intimate, bistro-style tables spread across earthenware tile floors, the downstairs dining area evokes the spirit of an Italian trattoria. A shaded patio section allows diners to enjoy their meals while keeping an eye on the bay's gliding sailboats and hitchhiking mermaids. In addition to accolades for its cuisine, Servino received recognition from the California Green Business Program, which honored the eatery for its commitment to eco-friendly practices and energy-conservation efforts.
