We got a take out from Cals to avoid the grumpy staff and atnosphere. The pizza gets 4 stars because its delicious, clearly the reviews here reflect that :) But to be honest when you're with your visiting family just get a take-out. Its not worth the gamble with Cal's customer service. I will say this though - Slice in... More

Pizza was ok put quite oily and overpriced. However, i may have been prepared to give it another go if the staff hadn't been so standoffish, unpleasant and generally unhelpful. We actually wanted to stay in the restaurant to eat but we were handed out food in take out boxes! Won't be getting a second chance.

First time dining at Cal's tonight and it couldn't have been better. Extremely friendly, familiar atmosphere as soon as you enter and the food was incredible. Will definitely be going back very soon.

Cal's Own appears to be rather legendary in the Toon, and it's easy to see why. Their pizza is fantastic, with a wide menu and plenty of opportunities for personalisation. BYOB provides a relaxed atmosphere and for the quality, it is reasonably priced. However, the customer service lets Cal's Own down. When we arrived, we were told there was no... More

Newcastle has dozens of pizza places, good, bad and indifferent, so who would have thought the best pizzas in town would be found on a suburban street in the heart of student-land? Cal is a Geordie boy who left the area, went to work in the Big Apple and then decided to come home and show the Geordies (and Italians)... More

We wanted to go here for a birthday meal on saturday. We had a party of 8, including small children and older relatives. Cal's Own declined to let us book a table, even when we offered to come very early in the evening - before 6. Their policy is no saturday bookings as 'they are too busy'. Very poor customer... More
