A16 recently underwent some minor renovations to add some additional seats last month, and some simple touches have made a big difference. A steely gray-black coat of paint goes the furthest towards upping this comfortable restaurant's sexy factor.

What's also sexy: A16's seemingly lightning-speed service in dropping a hot pizza on your table.

Two hungry or three not-ravenous people would be quite content with the pizzas here, which are served at both lunch and dinner. The Funghi lays down an earthy and meaty base of seasonal mushrooms (right now they're pioppini and trumpet) on top of a melted layer of addictingly salty grana and smoked mozzarella cheeses, both beautifully contrasted with garlic and a scattering of slightly bitter dandelion greens. The crust, popping with baby leopard spots, is a robust chew, making A16's oversized slices seem that much heartier.

A16 2355 Chestnut (at Divisadero), 771-2216.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
