Mozzeria, S.F.’s First Deaf-Owned Pizzeria, Opens Tonight!
The brand new Mozzeria, in the former Il Cantuccio spot.

As we type, the first deaf-owned restaurant in a major city, and 16th Street’s first Neapolitan pizzeria, is getting set to swing open its doors to the public. Mozzeria (3228 16th Street), the dream project of first-time restaurateur Melody and Russell Stein, is bound to find an audience quickly because a) we all love a good backstory, and b) we all love pizza. As we discussed before, the menu will include pastas and other dishes, and the pizzas will be both traditionally Neapolitan, and non-traditional with toppings like roast duck, hoisin sauce, and spring onion.

The full menu is not yet live on the website, but it should be here any minute now.

Mozzeria - 3228 16th Street, between Guerrero and Dolores - Open Sunday, and Tuesday to Thursday, 5:30 to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 5:30 to 11 p.m. Closed Mondays.
