The owners wanted a neighborhood pizza joint like they had growing up in Boston. The Dimitri is a pie they named after the guy who runs Noriega Produce up the road. It has every crazy thing on it: sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, garlic. The bar here feels like Cheers. 3901 Noriega St., (415) 759-5752, pizzaplacesf.com.
