Between Market and Mission on 6th, there’s Montesacro, a charming Italian restaurant serving Roman-style pizza known as “pinsa”. Small, yet cozy, with century old ovens and a wine list of 80, you’ll want to take some of it home. And you can, Montesacro includes a retail program with cheeses (25 varieties), cured meats (about 15 choices) and olive oil. All of Montesacro’s approximately 80 wines are also available for retail purchase at 33% of the list price.
But back to the (delicious) pinsa! The pinsas all come in one size which would be a small at most places; some might say a whole pizza is shareable but after one bite, most won’t want to share. The toppings at Montesacro really make this a special place. The Torpignattara, for example, features olive oil crushed potatoes, string beans, pesto and pine-nuts–a must-try and a favorite.
And if it’s Netflix night and you’d like Montesacro delivered to your door, no problem. They’ve partnered with Caviar and will soon be available through Uber Eats.Back to Blog
