      Quick and Good
      Italian fair that's quick and pretty good. Great for a cheap meal with a friend and okay if you don't mind the growing number of children and their parents invading your space (hey, The Castro is changing!). Not a place for a romantic date or with a large group of friends....keep it small and simple.

      Delicious food
      The only thing I can say about this restaurant is I LOVE IT. The restaurant serves really delicious food. The rotisserie chicken comes with different flavors, and everyone of them is very tasty. Try their special menu (behind the counter in a small blackboard).

      Maybe I'm a little bias
      Because I worked here when they first opened buuut it's really tasty affordable food. The rotisserie chicken, wood oven pizza is off the hook. I can also bare witness to the fact that at 5am each morning there is a very diligent tortellini stuffer/roller in the back stuffin and rollin little tortellini's for the day fresh. You can't beat fresh pasty, so go give it a try.

      Good food at reasonable prices
      I have been to Firewood several times not because the food is top-notch but because the food is pretty decent and reasonably priced. With the current economy being frugal is very important. This place has a good ambiance for first dates specially if you and your date want to go dutch. Do try their yummy Honey-Dijon Glazed Rotisserie Chicken served with their signature fire-roasted new potatoes!

      Great Pizzas and salad and Chicken
      I love this place for a quick meal and seeing friends. They have rotisserie chicken with these incredible potatoes. Thinnest pizza in town. Fresh salads with bread.
