We were here the last time we went to Lake Tahoe and the service was not as good as it was on our last visit. The food didn't taste as good as it did last time either.

After hearing people rave about it and seeing the long wait times we wanted to check this place out. We tried both the veggie options they have on the menu. The mix veggie was decent but the artichoke one wasn't that great. Nice ambiance though.

We stopped by here for lunch before heading home. We probably had three staff members check on us and ask if we needed anything. The appetizers and pizza were very good.

Great pizza , salads, music. Service was top notch, seated right away, food in ten minutes. Sit outside if weather permits, space heaters help at night. Location is one hundred yard from gondola, shopping and live music make this a great choice. Very friendly and enjoyable staff, we will be back!

This place gets crazy busy so go early, or be prepared to wait. Even for take-out it was 45 minutes to get our food. The salads and pizza were very good and excellent selection of beer.

We are pizza lovers! My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary in Lake Tahoe. We did a little research on the best pizza in town and found Basecamp Pizza. The Basecamp specialty pizza was amazing! Our waiter, Will, was outstanding. The live music was an added bonus on an already great meal. We sat outside and enjoy a... More

Really liked the 'Adult Rootbeer'! Personal size pizzas were handy for small eaters. Always live music and lots of seating.
