Our restaurant shares a name with the highway that runs from Naples to Canosa, Puglia. True to our namesake, we gather our inspiration from southern Italy, particularly Campania, the region surrounding Naples. Chef Rocky Maselli oversees the menu, which features fresh pasta, house-butchered and house-cured meats and authentic Neapolitan pizza. Complementing the rustic menu, Wine Director/owner Shelley Lindgren selects wines that highlight the indigenous grapes from Campania and nearby regions.

Perfect Spring Lunch! Great wine selection, the salad was as fresh and delicious as it was just put together from the garden

The squid ink pasta was really good. They also gave us a caramel gelato complimentary for some reason. Although the fig crostata could have been less sweet it went really well with the fennel gelato it is served with.

I have been following and big fan of Shelley Lindgren (A16 - Owner/Wine Director) for a while now. While I have dined at her SPQR restaurant, I only got a chance to dine at A16 about a year ago. As expected, the food of Campania and the amazing wine list did not disappoint! Proud of you Shelley, Cheers to your drive and love of good food and vino!

Best pizza ever! Secret menu item "The Widowmaker" is amazing. Ask your server about it. The meatballs are pricey, but excellent. Only on Monday's I think. Fantastic Wine List Hard to get in between 7-9

This review is solely on the food- not the service. This place is so highly rated that I still can't believe I had such a horrible experience there. Everything was salty, except the water and the wine, but everything else was salty.. E VE R Y T H I N G. We didn't order dessert because we thought even that they would manage to make salty. We waited 15 minutes for the drinks and bread to arrive. Yes, 15 minutes for wine and bread. There is no reason for this, they were not slammed, there was no wait to get the table, and the wine wasn't a mixed cocktail. The waitress simply forgot about us. I ordered the "Margherita pizza" and the "mixed roast of watson farm lamb". The pizza was ridiculously salty- my boyfriend and I laughed out loud over how salty it was- it was too salty to be true. It was like someone dumped a fistful of salt right in the middle of the pizza (not the outer areas and edges). Who does this? Who adds salt to a Margherita pizza? The lamb was also super salty- and lukewarm. The fatty part of the lamb was like rubber - chewy, cold, and impossible to slice with a knife. Btw- we were given knives so dull they were just like butter knives. No- your meat is not soft like butter is the EXACT opposite of that. I didn't finish my food. I drank my wine, and my boyfriend's wine. He ate everything because he was freaking starving. Again- my experience was sooooo bad, so unlike the reviews this place has that we even thought maybe someone in the kitchen REALLY hated us. However, I am not giving this place a second chance. We came her to celebrate our anniversary and the food was soooo disappointing I would have preferred to eat meatballs from Ikea. We spent $100+ in the most comically disgusting meal. It was a terrible experience the food + the service. Never again.

To be honest the food is quite delicious, but service quite a bit lacking. We had reservations for 7:30; was still waiting around at 8pm - and the snooty hostess was less than helpful. The pasta is very fresh and the quality of the ingredients come through. Good wine list. The takeaway - last year's prom queen seems a bit faded.

Specializes in Southern Italian food, from the Campania/Basilicata/Puglia regions along highway A16 that connects Naples and Bari. I've eaten here several times, and each time it's a treat: almost everything is good here, so you can't go wrong. (I know this cuisine, since I lived in Naples for 2 years and founded a website, Wikinapoli, about food, etc. in that region). I prefer the pizzas at Tony's in North Beach, but A16's are one of the better "Naples-style" pizzas in SF. Tip: don't miss the chocolate budino dessert!
