Gioia used to have an outpost in Russian Hill, but then they moved here to open this smaller, much more streamlined spot. It’s mostly a slice shop without much seating, so you’re best off getting your food to go, which isn’t a problem because everything comes on paper plates anyway. We like the Margherita, which is topped with thick slices of tomato, but our favorite is the garlicky mushroom. Whatever you get, the crust is crispy on the bottom, chewy around the edges, and a big slice will only run you $4.25, making this possibly the cheapest and fastest place to get a bite in the neighborhood.
