Wood-fired Neapolitan-inspired pizza is the star at this casual Nob Hill joint, an outgrowth of owner Jon Darsky’s wildly popular food truck of the same name. The menu goes way beyond the expected, however: Roasted mushrooms with toasted hazelnuts and aged gouda make a great start to any meal, as do the heirloom tomatoes with avocado and seeded crackers. Heck, add an order of mussels and you could make a meal of it before even sinking your teeth into a slice of margherita or house-made sausage pizza. But that would be a mistake: Don’t miss out on those gourmet pizzas.
