Calzone's Pizza Cucina
Description & Atmosphere
Calzone's is located on Columbus Avenue, in the heart of North Beach — just look for the row of little sidewalk tables out front and the black-and-white checkered flooring.
Day or night, we love sitting outside (it's worth the wait for a table) and watching all the people pass by (overhead heaters keep diners warm on chilly nights). The casual-style restaurant has intimate indoor dining and a comfortable bar area with windows overlooking Columbus Avenue. It's a fun place to come with friends, family and out-of-town guests — great for late-night dining too!
Calzone's offers an incredible selection of thin-crust pizzas (oblong vs round) — they're delicious. Choose from Margherita, Pepperoni, Sausage, Fra' Mani Salame, Smoked Salmon, Mushroom, Mediterranean, San Daniele Prosciutto, Combo, Four Cheese, Vegetable, BBQ Chicken, Rocket Arugula and Crab.
Pasta dishes are excellent too — we love the Prawns Alfredo with Pt. Reyes Bleu Cheese, Swiss Chard, Artichoke & Pine Nuts. Gnocchetti (baby potato dumplings) with Rocket Arugula Pesto Sauce is rich, but tasty. Other menu standouts include Fresh Salads & Sandwiches, Ravioli, Lasagne, Orzo entrees, Pork Scallopini and Pork Milanese, Roasted Chicken, Lamb, Steak, and Fresh Seafood.
Stop by Calzone's cozy bar for a before-or-after-dinner cocktail, beer, wine, or Mojito. The bar is open til 1am nightly, so it's a great place to come for a late-night coffee and snack.
