Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar | Coronado, CA

Ocean View from Hotel Del Coronado

Although it certainly factors into the price of their pizzas, it is hard to beat the location of Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar within the famous Hotel Del Coronado of Coronado Island in San Diego County.  The Hotel Del Coronado, or “The Del” as it is often called, is a very luxious resort that has been […]

Pizza Port | Carlsbad, CA

Meet Extreme Meat

Pizza Port is a really cool pizzeria and brewery with multiple locations in the San Diego area.  It actually started as a pizza place and craft-brewed beers were added a little later, after one of the owners had success when dabbling in home brewing.  Don’t let that fool you into thinking their beers are just […]

Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant | San Diego, CA

Giovanni's in San Diego_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

It could have been because I hadn’t eaten in about ten hours, but the food from Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant exceeded my expectations.  Granted my expectations typically aren’t very high for a pizza delivery place recommended by the hotel front desk, but the Giovanni’s location in the Kearny Mesa-area of San Diego really delivered (pun intended).  First, I […]

Pizza My Heart | Emeryville, CA

Pizza My Heart in Emeryville, CA_Sausage and Pepperoni Slice

Pizza My Heart was founded in 1981 and remains family-owned with many locations in California.  I visited their restaurant in the Bay Street Mall in the Oakland-area, and it is located towards the south end of this outdoor mall near the movie theater.  Pizza My Heart offers quick pizza-by-the-slice as well as whole pies, plus bread sticks, wings, and salads.  […]

Filippi’s Pizza Grotto | San Diego, CA

Filippi's Pizza Grotto in San Diego, CA_Capicola and Salami Pizza

Filippi’s Pizza Grotto has been serving San Diego for over fifty years, and they now have fourteen restaurants in the area.  I dined at the one in the Scripps Ranch region of San Diego, which is northeast of downtown.  I was pleasantly surprised as soon as I walked in because the inside of this Filippi’s had […]

Mr. Pizza Review | Los Angeles, CA

Mr Pizza_Sausage and Pepperoni

Mr. Pizza in downtown Los Angeles is located in the Little Tokyo section of town.  As I am not a big fan of Asian food, it certainly stuck out as a solid dining option to me when I was in the area.  Mr. Pizza offers some unique pizza concoctions with non-traditional toppings such as a popular potato […]

Pitfire Pizza Review | Los Angeles, CA

Pitfire Pizza_Pitfire Sausage

Pitfire Pizza has a few locations in the Los Angeles area, and I stopped in at their downtown Los Angeles restaurant.  I started with their breadsticks (pictured below) which had a little bit of cheese on them and were very good.  My group then sampled three different pizzas, the pitfire sausage minus red onions (pictured […]

California Pizza Kitchen | La Jolla, CA

CA - California Pizza Kitchen

California Pizza Kitchen offers good pizza and many more menu options than their name would imply. I liked that their pizza had a light, fluffy crust, however they aren’t exactly loaded with cheese and toppings. They offer a lot of specialty pizzas (the Meat Cravers pizza that someone I was with had is pictured below), […]

Round Table Pizza | Woodland, CA

CA - Round Table Pizza_Review

Roundtable Pizza is a chain throughout most of the west coast. I enjoyed the ham and bacon pizza I ordered as the toppings were excellent. I tried the original crust which was pretty good but not too special. They also offer pan and skinny crusts though. Some of their locations, this one included, have all-you-can-eat […]

Giovanni’s Pizza | Santa Barbara, CA

Giovanni's_Pizza Review

Giovanni’s Pizza has been voted Santa Barbara’s best pizza several years, and I do agree that they serve pretty good pizza with an average thickness crust and good sausage. They have a variety of food on their menu that also includes salads, calzones, pasta, and oven-baked sub sandwiches. The inside of the restaurant has an […]
