    Excellent Neopolitan style pizza. Although the pizza was a little crusty on my last visit (compared to previous visits and other comparable pizzas in the bay area). The sauce on the margherita is to die for. Decent service. They add a 20% gratuity by default.

    Pizza crust is incredible but I don’t recommend the flavor combos on the Funghi pizza. The burrata was meh. Very firm and unlike burrata. Salad was bland but edible with salt and pepper. Disappointed as I like the one in the city.

    Had a great meal! Was happy to see the pasta was on the menu since it’s been hit and miss when they offer it lately. The fried squash blossoms and octopus appetizer were both perfectly prepared and the the pizza and roasted trout were SO GOOD!!! We got the wax beans-tasty and the corn side dish, also tasty but would have preferred it off the cob. The blueberry dessert was the perfect size, not overwhelming and well balanced. Our server was attentive and the pacing was great. Will be back soon!

    Great customer service from checking in and leaving the restaurant. The summer squash risotto was excellent. The sorbetto was amazing, but the blueberry cristalina was a little dry. The music they were playing wasn’t in harmony with the ambience. Wished they payed attention to this detail. We’ll come back again.

    We sat at the bar as we were there so early. The bartender and one of the waiters were so helpful in picking glasses of wine. The meatball starter was nice. We ordered the mushroom truffle oil pizza--way to heavy on the truffle oil. Too Overbearing. We should have ordered the pasta and a salad. Next time.

    We ordered apps and wine, but the apps came long before the wine. When the entrees were served, they came one at a time and my lasagne was refrigerator cold. Then when I got the check, there was a mandated 20% tip. While the food was good, except for the lasagne. It was far to expensive for the meal we received.

    The food and service were impeccable. Truly have not had such great service from everyone including server, busboys, food runner— all were excellent. Loved the food although my pasta could have been a bit more al dente. The only thing I didn’t love was it was cold inside and I felt the restaurant decor was a bit generic. Would love more warmth and darker lighting. Overall a really great experience and kudos to the chef and staff.

    The food at A16 is great. But the service is consistently sub-par every time we dine at A16. We have two kids and always order everything up front and made it clear that we need the dishes to come out fast. It took awhile to get our drinks and appetizers, and over an hour and a half to get our entrees! We ended up taking the entree (a whole fish) home because the kids had enough. They had to wait way too long for their food and started having a meltdown. There was no apology and no recognition that it took too long after we raised this issue w the staff. I wish this wasn’t the first time we experienced this. Unfortunately, service is consistently sub-par

    Our server John was amazing! He checked in just the right amount, really understood the food, wine, and amari menus. Made great recommendations and clearly was having a good time. My only suggestion for improvement was that our pasta dish came out cold. I think they might have been understaffed, so it might have been sitting for a bit before it came to our table. The main dish came very shortly after, so probably just a minor service hiccup. Overall, it was a fantastic date night. We’ll be back!

    Good but not great Neopolitan cuisine. Ate outdoors in nice temporary private area. Food & drink are fairly pricey but I assume (hope) that they pay their staff well. Friendly, knowledgeable staff but service was slow (probably since it was Easter lunch).

    Met a friend for dinner and had a fabulous time again! Our service was exceptional and well paced. We ordered a Nero d'Avola from Sicily which was fantastic with our Montanara pizza. They were gracious enough to switch the sauce out from the smokey tomato one on the menu. This is the only pizza offering that has fried dough before going into the oven, which makes the crust even crispier. I love the atmosphere with high ceilings. whimsical art and gorgeous floral arrangements. Always a local crowd of friendly neighbors! Reservations suggested but you can dine at the bar!

    Food was fine. Service was ok: we asked for something to be excluded from the salad but still there. Asked, prior to arrival, for a specific seat, were told it was ok. We arrived and were told that they tried, but were unable reach us. (how is this excuse possible in these times, we all have smart phones capable of messages being left and are aware of recent calls).
