Located in the very centre, this pleasant restaurant offers affordable food and drinks in a nice and cosy atmosphere. I had pizza Margheritta, delicious, and a Bud Light for around 20 dollars, and that made a great lunch for me.

Been here about 5 times now but never wrote a review and I should. They serve good food, the service is fine and given that I've been back so often - they deserve a mention. No fine dining but definitely the best pizza I had in San Francisco

We hadn't eaten at a CPK in years and I wasn't that thrilled with my husbands choices. Then we went and were pleasantly surprised. The salmon was really great. Everyone in our party liked their food, even though it lacked an authentic local experience.

We visited this outlet which was just opposite our hotel. They serve lovely breads with olive oils with herbs, soups & fantastic sea food pasta & spagetti. We visited it thrice in our short stay. Quite expensive.

Very relaxing lunch here after a morning at SFMOMA (1 block away). We each had different salads - both were excellent. Portion sizes were large. Restaurant was very quiet; great place for conversations & privacy.

I stayed in the Park Central hotel opposite and decided to try this hotel as I didn't want to walk too far. The food was OK, nothing special. Go here if you are desperate and too tired to walk far.

We went here with a big group. I myself had the barbecue pizza, which I would definitely not recommend. The serving was fine, and others did enjoy their meal. Whether it is good value for money depends on what you order, but I myself would not go back.

I am usually a fan of CPK but for some reason their take out pizza isn't very good here at this location. I'll stick to dine-in from now on after two bad take-out trips here.

We were staying at the Park Central hotel and this was across the road so nice and handy. Big restaurant with booth seating and a pizza oven. Server was pleasant but a little over the top. We ordered some starters that were tasty and a good size. We also shared a meat lovers type pizza that was tasty as well.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
