pizza and beer

I have been to this place for many years and it is always a good spot to get some good pizza and even better beer. It serves mostly student from the UC campus, but anybody will value the pizza and the possibility to sit outside when the weather cooperates.

I went quite a few times there while I was a postdoc at Berkeley, but would not recommend the place. It is convenient for the people who are located in the North End, and I do not see another pizza place in that area, but I see no other reason to stop by there. Pizzas are quite fat, not very...

If you want to capture the flavor of Berkeley, this is the place! The pizzas are great and the ambiance is really fun to experience. I have been eating here for 25 years and I always look forward to my next visit.

La Val's Pizza is one of the few Berkeley staples, and even though it's near campus it's still a great restaurant for adults, families, etc. Pizzas and pastas are excellent (better than most mom and pop shops and chains) and a great value.

La Val's major draw is its convenient location on Euclid Ave on the northside of Cal's campus and near the Graduate Theological Union. It attracts a younger, college-aged crowd who don't require much besides cheap pizza and beer and the owners seem to be all too aware of that. The pizza is good, but not great, certainly not something you... More

I go there for lunch, being very close to my department at UC Berkeley (at the North Gate). It is quite fast (but I usually go late, around 1.30-2.00 p.m) and it has quite good pizzas. No service at table and quite cheap. They often play european soccer games on tv.

I have been going to La Val's since I was 5 (I am 40 now) and always visit when I come to California. The last two times I've been here (2010 and yesterday) it just wasnt very good. The sauce is sweeter than ever and the crust no longer puffs up. Its no longer anything I would go out of... More

Even though I'm more than forty years older than the usual college-town clientele of this pizza/pasta joint, I always dine at this hangout on Euclid just north of the UC campus's North Gate at least once when I'm in Berkeley, for one good reason - the pasta. I ate here once with my wife when it was late and we... More

La Val's and La Burrita are owned by the same people. We like La Burrita a lot so we thought we'd try the pizza place too. We went there to watch a Cal game, eat pizza & have a beer. They weren't very busy but never yelled out our pizza number or brought our pizza to our table. With very... More

I actually enjoy the pizza, and the lunch special's a pretty good deal.
