This ultra-Italian pizzeria from the owners of nearby Farina Focaccia and Cucina Italiana is designed to feel like a sleek, Italian diner. A long bar faces the pizza oven like a lunch counter, and handsome wooden communal tables take the place of booths behind them. Mod chrome fixtures, subway tile, and a pop-art ceiling collage featuring midcentury Italian comic book characters complete the retro feel at this Mission District restaurant. The Neapolitan pizzas at Farina Pizzeria and Cucina are fired in a custom pizza oven constructed with sand from Mt. Vesuvius and salt from the Mediterranean, and while they are made with high-quality imported ingredients, including fresh cured salty ham and luscious prosciutto, the pies overall are a bit soggy in the center. The rest of the menu offers Italian appetizers like a tasty warm octopus salad, and a pasta puttanesca that came perfectly al dente, with the assertive zest crucial to Neapolitan sauce.

  • 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.'"
