About Sharon Ardiana

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.

At My Venues

Amatriciana pizza
$$, Pizza, Panhandle
"They make the most delicious, crispy but slightly chewy pizzas in the city! Visit their original restaurant, Gialina, too, if you're looking for a neighborhood change."
Amatriciana pie
$$, Pizza, 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."
Salad
$$, Pizza, 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."
