Far from being a pizza restaurant; this is a cozy, family-run Italian joint serving specialty dishes & homemade cheesecake.

Pizza's are generally good. Crust it great. You can design your own pizza which is nice. For home delivery it is almost always 1 hour which is a long time even the fact we live 5 min by car from the restaurant.

Good food. A little crowed with the tables so close. The staff was overworked. A good place to take kids.

The pizza was pretty good, but a little soggy. Great flavor, though. We called ahead and brought it back to the hotel, and it was really close by.

Passed by this hidden gem and glad we stopped. Don't let the name Pizzaria fool you. We ordered the ravioli's and eggplant Parmesan. For dessert enjoyed the cannoli. Whaaaawhoooooo! Best place around the area, and can't beat the prices. WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

My hands-down favorite pizza anywhere (not comparing Chicago deep-dish). Ex-NY pizza snob, so my recommendation is good. Tasty sauce, thin crust. Can be a little heavy on oil, but just dab that up if you don't like it. Regular chef is off Tues/Wed, I think....More

A great choice for dinner between Napa and San Francisco. I picked this stop since many years ago I had dinner at their restaurant on Geary in San Francisco. Our grandchildren had the half potion of Tortellini which is a good choice for young children....More

I think this is a local chain in Marin area. Our pickyish 11 year old granddaughter loved her vegetarian Pesto pizza. Hubby happy with chicken Parmesan. I appreciated gluten-free pasta that I ordered with cheese only, no tomato sauce due to a garlic/onion intolerance. Phone...More

Gaspare's Pizza House & Italian Restaurant in San Francisco first opened in 1985. Our second location Gaspare's Pizzeria Ristorante Bar in San Rafael opened in 2007. It is owned and operated by Daniel, Gaspare and Robin. It’s the best pizza in the Bay Area! We serve home style Italian cooking in a romantic setting at very reasonable price! Besides the best pizza, we are serving a variety of pasta dishes, veal, chicken, seafood, vegetarian dishes, gluten free choices and more. Last but not least, we are proud to serve the best homemade cheesecake this side of New York. The entire menu can be prepared to go for pick-up or delivery!
