Nice après ski pizza, and the gluten free pizza is top shelf (according to members of my family). I had the Thai Chicken Curry, which garners favor among the locals. Recommend sitting outside where the music is also first rate.

The first time we came across and stopped for a drink on the patio because there was live music and heaters rocking to keep us warm while we enjoyed the sunshine on our face. Sat around a fire pit too which was super cool. 2nd time was for lunch b/c we saw... More

Fantastic happy hour! They have a bunch of different beers on tap on special. I absolutely love the pizza here! Mediterranean is delicious! This is always a place we stop at and get some drinks and pizza. Nicely located in the village.

We had been wanting pizza since we smelled it on our flight out to Tahoe and this place definitely satisfied the craving!! We started with fresh made hummus and a big delicious Greek salad and then enjoyed our veggie pizza on made in house gluten free dough!!

My family went ice skating in Heavenly Village, and this restaurant was right next to the rink. While I sat with our baby, an employee came around offering samples. It was their veggie pizza with goat cheese. It was SO GOOD!! The prices were too steep for us to take our family for a meal, so we did not actually... More

So we were visiting during Christmas holiday week and so was everybody else. The wait was 45 mins but it was okay because we had to wait for my sister and her family and my friend and her family. Total for our party was 15. The nice thing was once we sat, we had an awesome waitress who knew exactly... More

Went for pizza with a large group over MLK weekend. Wait was an hour but you can walk around the village while you wait. Got the base camp pizza which is super tasty. They also have good beer on tap. It was a fun atmosphere and service would excellent.

You get a whiff of pizza cooking as you get off the gondola at Heavenly which makes you more hungry than you were when you got on at the top. The restaurant appeared to be always busy, with live music on its patio most evenings as we walked past. We waited till midweek which paid off as we were taken... More
