Only one type of pizza each day, so it's fast. But tastes so good. Live music to boot. Would definitely come back.

Yes, the place is crowded but the line moves fast. You don't have to wait for your pizza. It is ready the minute you place your order. Our pizza of the day was 4-cheese + pesto, and it came very close to a true Italian pizza (thin crust, not too much on top - just right). I love this place!

I like going to the collective to not only buy cheese but they also carry wonderful breads to enjoy with the beautiful cheese.

They only serve one kind of pizza a day, but it's so tasty. Cuts down on the wait time as the order is slice, half pizza or whole. Guaranteed to have a delicious experience. If you get there early enough in the day, definitely have their dessert or they will run out and you will be sad.

Went there early for dinner before the line got too long. This co-op pizza joint offers some of the best tasting pizza I've ever had. As you dine on their pizza of the day, you can enjoy some live music from the band that's playing. Parking can be an issue, so plan to park on the adjoining streets with metered... More

You get some great pizza here and a true Berkeley experience. Don't forget to buy some of the "secret" green sauce, which will curl your toes, but I cannot live without. I order the pizza double cut, which allows you to savor the vegetarian combos you get here. They usually put some garlic on their pizzas, so I am loving... More

What if I live in Berkeley but do not like Cheeseboard Pizza? Am I the only one? Lines out the door, down the block every day. But....boring pizzas. Uninteresting sauces, dull crusts. "Nice to eat on the median of Shattuck"??? in the middle of Berkeley's busiest street? Inhale the exhaust. Sorry, I'd rather eat grass.

I love this place and so has everyone who's come with me. Go on Friday and Sat. night to hear the band playing (is this only summer?). There is only one type of pizza each night but it is uniquely delicious and the pizza varies each night. They provide extra pieces whether you get a half or whole pizza. There... More

Judging by the lines you would think that the pizza must be great. I have eaten it tons of times often when others have bought it. Too gummy for my taste. The crust on many occasions is still doughy instead of fully cooked. Too sloppy on the topping. Not a good pizza. Many other better places.

This place is a must see when in Berkeley. One flavor per day, delicious, and they pound them out! Don't let the line discourage you; it's worth it and there's often live music too!
