Sharon Ardiana at Ragazza


Sharon attended The Restaurant School in Philadelphia and moved to San Francisco in 1989. She honed her skills at highly regarded spots including Boulevard and the Slow Club. In January 2007, Sharon opened Gialina, named for her grandmother. The neighborhood pizzeria served as the anchor for Glen Park's revitalization and remains a perennial neighborhood favorite. Her second restaurant, Ragazza, brought a more extensive menu of pizza, pasta, and seasonally inspired salads to the Divisadero corridor in 2010.

Chef Melissa King reviews Amatriciana pizza at Ragazza
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Lower Haight
"They make the most delicious, crispy but slightly chewy pizzas in the city! Visit their original restaurant, Gialina, too, if you're looking for a neighborhood change."
Chef Jacob Des Voignes reviews Amatriciana pie at Gialina Pizzeria
$$ | Italian
Glen Park
"This is a thin-crust pizza with spicy tomato sauce, pancetta, a farm egg, and Pecorino. The crust is a perfect combination of chewy and crunchy, and the egg is nice and runny. If you order it to-go, the bar two doors down is a great spot to grab a beer while you wait. "
Chef Mark Sullivan reviews Atomica pie at Gialina Pizzeria
$$ | Italian
Glen Park
"I love to start off with one of their family-style salads before I enjoy a pizza. The pizza crust is crispy, well-seasoned, and moist. The Atomica has just the right amount of heat!"
Chef Nicolaus Balla reviews Salad at Gialina Pizzeria
$$ | Italian
Glen Park
"Gialina is the perfect neighborhood restaurant. The salads can be ordered in a huge size (a salad should be a meal, not just a couple of bites). The salads at Gialina are always delicious, satiating, and made with great ingredients."
