$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Cuisine for Dinner
The dinner menu includes pasta in lemon-cream sauce with roasted pine nuts ($14), a cheese pizza ($10), and a pizza with prawns, clams, and calamari ($16).
Pizza Chef Giovanni Adinolfi left his kitchen on the French Riviera to charter Pizza Nostra's menu of Italian specialties and Neapolitan-style thin-crust pizza, which are made with signature recipes from the Italian city of Recco. Today, Pizza Nostra continues the delectable work of firing up a wood-scented gas oven to crisp the crusts of pizzas laden with mozzarella or specialty toppings such as prosciutto di Parma and arugula.
Diners practice their matchmaking skills as they pick which pasta and sauce combination they'd like, or they can order complete entrees, such as lemon roasted chicken, grilled salmon, or an organic ground-beef burger. Elegant desserts, such as espresso panna cotta with fig vincotto, encourage lingering in the cozy dining room or on the larger patio during nice weather or pretty lightning storms. The kitchen also whips up frittatas, omelets, and egg dishes for brunch, and several sandwiches for lunch.
Some consider Pizza Nostra a neighborhood gem, but it hasn't escaped the notice of critics. Zagat labeled it a "casual outpost for enjoying authentic antipasti, pastas and Neapolitan thin-crust pies," and the San Francisco Bay Guardian called the service "impeccable," praised the pizza as "lovely," and described the complimentary focaccia as having "a pillow-like softness and bewitching olive-oil breath," much like the most popular girl in high school.
