Arinell Pizza is a New York Style pizza place in the Mission District. It's polarizing: some think it's the most authentic NY Pizza you can get in the city, while others disagree, because people like to argue about pizza all the time. They have a second location in Berkeley.

All slices are made starting with pre-made cheese pizzas and throwing toppings on prior to reheating, so if you get more than two toppings on your pizza it will probably be cold and unmanageable. Don't miss the jalapenos on top of the counter. Arinell's toppings cost $.50ish per slice, but you can take as many jalapenos as you want for free.
