Montesacro — the San Francisco-based Italian restaurant that bills itself as the first to serve Roman-style pinsa in the United States — may have gotten its start off a gritty sidestreet in the heart of SoMa. But these days the restaurant finds itself in very different environs: On Saturday, November 26, Montesacro expands for the first time to the East Bay, opening its fourth location in the tony suburb of Walnut Creek.

The restaurant is located at 1686 Locust Street, just a few blocks from retail destination Broadway Plaza and joins sister locations in San Francisco’s Marina neighborhood and Brooklyn, in addition to the original shop.
