Luisa's Ristorante is an Italian restaurant on Columbus Avenue's Little Italy drag.

As we previously reported, the new restaurant, which took over the Burgermeister space, is the latest from restaurateur Luisa Hanson, who has run several now-shuttered San Francisco restaurants, including La Vinoteca, Delaney's Bar and Luisa's Pizza and Pasta in Nob Hill. Like the latter, this new spot is a traditional Italian American eatery, offering comfort food classics, including thin-crust pizzas made with homemade sauce.

The new spot has received positive feedback on Yelp thus far.

Yelper S.K. Y., who reviewed Luisa's Ristorante on Sept. 14, wrote, "One of the most charming dining experiences."

Luisa's Ristorante is open from 4–11 p.m. on Sunday–Thursday and 4 p.m.–midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The recently opened Strada Pizza has taken over the storefront of Taraval Pizza. This new pizzeria offers four sizes of pizza topped with your choice of classic toppings.

Check out specialty pies like the Strada Combo (with pepperoni, sausage, salami, roasted bell peppers and olives), the Maui Sunset (ham, bacon and pineapple), the California Creamy Chicken or the veggie-friendly Greek Goddess and Pesto Lover pizzas. Strada Pizza also offers other pizzeria favorites, such as calzones, subs, salads, wings and more.

Strada Pizza currently holds 3.5 stars out of three reviews on Yelp, indicating fair reviews.

Yelper Sarah M., who reviewed the eatery on Sept. 8, wrote, "This pizza did not disappoint!"

Strada Pizza is open from 11 a.m.–10:30 p.m. on Monday, 10:30 a.m.–10:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, 10:30 a.m.–11:30 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m.–11:30 p.m. on Saturday. (It's closed on Tuesday and Sunday.)

Abe’s Pizza is a pizzeria offering slices and whole pies for dine-in, takeout and delivery.

As we reported back in May, Abe's Pizza owner Abe Zal is a 25-year veteran of Blondie's Pizza, which was previously located a block away on Powell Street before shutting down in 2016. Abe's Pizza, which has another location in Berkeley, serves up signature pizzas, like the Sausage Supreme, the Magic Mushroom and the Hyphy, made with jalapeno, pepperoni and pineapple. There are gluten-free and vegan options, too.

Abe’s Pizza's current rating of four stars out of 18 reviews on Yelp indicates that the newcomer has received a warm welcome.

Yelper Pepper B., who was one of the first users to visit Abe’s Pizza on Aug. 25, wrote, "Definitely skip all the tourist trap food in the area and grab a slice on the way to The Warfield or after a day of shopping."

Abe’s Pizza is open from 10:30 a.m.–midnight on Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Sunday.
