Flour + Water has made national headlines recently as Travel + Leisure Magazine dubbed the restaurant as having some of the best tasting pizza in the country. Read the full article here. Flour + Water is located in the Mission District and serves authentic Italian Cuisine, including Neapolitan, thin-crust pizza. The restaurant has four pies to choose from and they’re prepared in a Valoriani oven, which was imported from Italy. Wood-fired pizza, if prepared correctly, is remarkably delicious because you are not only getting flavors from fresh, seasonal ingredients, you are getting added flavors from the burning wood--reminiscent of a smoky campfire.
The menu at Flour + Water changes daily, as the chef only uses the freshest ingredients available on the market. The meat is cured in-house, making it flavorful and rich. Roasted pork leg and cotechino with roasted parships, white beans and mustard jus is a perfect dish if you are looking for a well-prepared entree. The pasta is hand-rolled, adding a distinct texture and taste. Aleppo garganelli with pork sausage, erbette chard and horseradish is a good choice if you would like to try both the pasta and a cured meat. Other menu items include hen, rabbit and lamb tounge -- making Flour + Water much more unique than your average neighborhood pizza joint.
Wine and Italian food go hand in hand and the extensive wine list has something for everyone- whether you are a seasoned wine connoisseur or are just looking for something cheap and tasty. Bottles range from $20 to $60 and the wait staff can help you pair your wine to your meal.
