Kick off the warmer months in SF by hosting your own private summer garden soirée with nine friends, wood-fired pizzas, and Italian wine in the private Ragazza garden.
Ragazza means "girl" in Italian. The restaurant's name and theme pays homage to chef Sharon Ardiana's love for simple Italian cooking, which was instilled at a young age by the female chefs in her family.
Tucked in the Lower Haight, chef Sharon Ardiana's second restaurant (the first is Glen Park’s Gialina) serves traditional Italian dishes inspired by the kitchens of Napoli. In the restaurant and outside on the patio, small groups share wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas topped with ingredients like pork belly, Portobello mushrooms and farmer’s market pecorino. Fall-off-the-bone roasts, baked pastas and savory antipasti are also on the menu. And the hearty meals are complemented by a well-cultivated beer and wine list inspired by the grapes and hops of Italy.
What we love
- Share the chef’s selection of antipasti, seasonal salads and their critically acclaimed wood-fire pizzas.
- Chef and owner Sharon Ardiana accents traditional Italian recipes with fresh Bay Area-ingredients, like the avocado and beet salad with kumquats, and the Puttanesca pie with Calabrian chilies, capers, olives and anchovies.
