THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cinecitta Bar & Roman Pizza Restaurant Review

: Adnan Daken is baking up thin, crispy square pizzas in North Beach. While living in Italy with his Roman wife, Romina, Daken decided it was time to introduce San Francisco to the pies he'd grown to love. The crust, made with high-gluten flour mixed with wheat flour, is denser than Neapolitan-style but still has the four main attributes: thin, crisp, bubbly and charred. We loved the Capriccioso---artichoke, prosciutto, mozzarella, olives and an over-easy egg---as well as the O Sole Mio, topped with anchovies, Parmigiano and tomato sauce. The Boscaiola with grilled sausage and mushrooms and the Margherita are perfect for those wanting simple classics, while the four-cheese Bianca---Brie, Gorgonzola, Parmigiano, mozzarella and tomato sauce sprinkled with candied pecans---offers something for more adventurous eaters. Cinecittà also serves made-to-order lasagna, panini sandwiches and salads. There are 20 bottles of wine---all under $30 and available by the glass.
