Pizza, pasta, take your pick - it's all good! So delicious, so much flavor, plenty to eat. Wish the place was bigger - can be a challenge to get a seat.

My husband and I like to spend quality time together on Sundays. After a day of exploring in the North County San Diego area we wanted to find some good Italian food. After several stops to look at a few places we found on my phone, we found Jays and have been going back for the delicious food, friendly service... More

In Carlsbad for a mini-vacation with family, had heard Jay's was a good place. Got one of the four or so tables out on the parking lot which was fine. I actually think it was cooler and quieter out there than inside and the parked cars blocked the view and noise of the street a bit. Brandon was our server,... More

The Pizza is some of the best ive had on the west coast that is similar to east cost style. Amazing! Also have had some of their pasta and sea food just as great. Servers are great and the free bread sticks are even better then they smell. The wine list is quite good. Always bring people here when they... More

The food was good; lots of fresh seafood, and solid traditional Italian food. The service had good and bad moments; we were travelling with our pet, and they allow pets in their - well, I was going to say out door seating, but in reality it is four tables in the parking lot they share with the surf shop next...

Service was overwhelmingly friendly and professional at the same time. Not to mention the best seafood dishes, fresh and abundant. If you really want a seafood feast then order Jays Combo, it just the best you'll experience. And the Pizza is just mag, I have to say. Delta Papa Zulu

This was our second visit and the first didn't go well but this visit was much better. Our first visit had service problems and while we didn't have the same issues, the service there still leaves a bit to be desired. It doesn't appear anyone wants you in there, but if you're willing to overlook that the food is good... More

Lived nearby for years and it was a favorite evening for my wife and me to get a pizza to go, some wine, and walk down to the beach to enjoy the sunset... great location, great service, fantastic pizza!

We always make time for Jay's pizza while in Carlsbad. You can create your own and the crust is delicious. There's indoor and outdoor seating but it's small so go early.

Although the food was very good the waitress was not so good. Not very attentive to customer, had to ask for water and bread and to have order taken. She was more concerned at talking with a couple of men at the bar instead of what her customers needed.
