Starbelly is solidly okay. We’re not mad at this place, but is there any real reason to rush over? Nah.

If you’re in the Castro with 10 people that need to eat right now, Starbelly is perfect. Conveniently for us, this was the exact scenario that led us to the restaurant. And from a location and atmosphere perspective, it came through.

The food didn’t really, though. The pizza is okay, but not really worth a special trip. The rest of the menu was fine but unmemorable.

That said, there’s room for this kind of place in your roster from time to time. No one you bring is going to say “man, I wish we hadn’t gone to that terrible restaurant.”

No one ever got fired for booking dinner at Starbelly.

Food Rundown

House Fries

They come with three dips! None are stand-out delicious.

Kale Salad

An average kale salad. In other words: “healthy,” decent, no one will complain.

Brussels Sprouts

You’ve seen this movie before. These are standard pretty-good brussels sprouts. There’s bacon in play. The ladies love a good Belgian Brassica, or so we hear.


Perhaps the only restaurant burrata we’ve had that wasn’t somewhere on the scale between awesome and ridiculously delicious. Points off for that, Starbelly.

Pizzas (chorizo, bacon, mushroom, margherita)

A decent but unremarkable crust unifies these pizzas. Bacon+jalapeño+arugula was the clear winner in our tasting, but, again, you ain’t getting really good pizza.

Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream

The best part of the meal…from another food joint. You could have a mission burrito and some Humphry’s next time if you’re looking to save some bucks.
