News that Tony’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Slice House officially opened Friday came as pleasant news to lovers of pizza who have dealt with the hoards that flock to its parent restaurant.
Tony Gemignani Pizza Napoletana in North Beach has some of the best pizza in the City but getting a tasty bite can turn into quite a chore. Hopefully things will get easier with Gemignani's new offshoot right next door to his well-known pizzeria.
Tony’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Slice House also boasts Northern California's first coal-fired brick oven pizza a la Grimaldi's Pizzeria in New York, according to Inside Scoop. People can argue it's the water that gives New York pizza its edge but it doesn't hurt having a coal fired oven either.
While the restaurant serves full pies in the famed New York style it also offers thin-crust slices and Sicilian squares along with a variety of sandwiches.
The only problem is the restaurant is only open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 11:30 p.m. just like its older brother.
