Cupola Pizzeria

We went to the Cupola Pizzeria on the fourth floor of the Westfield Centre in San Francisco. Right under the rehabbed dome of the old Emporium Dept Store. 

We’re not really mall people but, don't let the mall dissuade you from dining here. The pizza and antipasti are well made and tasty, and the wine on tap is a really good Jupiter Sangiovese.

Hand Pulled Warm Buffalo Mozzarella

With the pizza we ordered two antipasti dishes. The Grilled Lamb Shoulder with a fantastic mint salsa verde & hand pulled warm buffalo mozzarella with toasted bread. Then a super 12 inch funghi (mushroom) pizza. The meal was perfect.

The Pizza crust was perfect, crispy and not doughy and the funghi, onions and sauce were very good together. It should be, they make the pizza in a handcrafted Stefano Ferrara wood-burning pizza oven imported from Naples, Italy. One of the few in the US.

The atmosphere is nice throughout the restaurant and it is especially quiet in the back. Plus, the servers are quite charming too.

I can recommend Cupola Pizzeria as a solid downtown dining choice- whether you're shopping or not- if you want something nicer than typical casual dining.

Cupola was excellent, as was the noise level and comfort. The wine was quite good too. We really liked this place for a casual spot in the area and based on this visit, we shall return.

Highly recommended!
