I was hoping for a really good experience here, especially considering the reviews. My uncle from Vietnam was in town and loves pizza, so we wanted to show him what really good pizza would be like. I actually enjoy deep dish pizza, but I think my uncle would have thought it was too heavy, so my favorite go-to spot was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn in Cosa Messa while attending a wedding. The front desk told us about this place and they were right. We had the Appetizer Sampler a Margarita pizza and a sub. All fantastic. Great decor with old signs and autograph sports pictures.

Great little pizza place in Costa Mesa. The gluten free crust is very good and the toppings range from the expected to the inspired. Decent prices.

Came back for more than sandwich and had the "Meat Lover's Pizza". Ba-Da-Bing! Forget'about it. Ray and Carmiena know how to make pizza. Sauce is perfect ratio to cheese and meat. Ciao is keeps riasing to the top of our places to eat list..do you think they could be convinced to open for breakfast?

My husband and I visited here last night.....we had been here only once before since it isn't near our house. We enjoyed our meal last time so we decided to head here again since we were going to be in the neighborhood. I'm so glad we did! I was in a pasta mood rather than pizza or sandwiches (which are...

There is an East Coast attitude here...the service is brisk and the attitude is too. But, if you love Italian Food that comes from San Francisco this is your place. A mere 14 seats but food that is done just right. Locals love it and now we do too. Pizza is great but the sandwiches are the real find here....

Owners are a husband and wife who were both friendly and made us feel welcome. The pizza!! I love trying Pizza while away from home and this place is why. This is one... More

We were not sure where to find a place to eat as we were from out of town and thought we would try this place. So glad we did. It's in a little strip mall but don't let that scare you. We had a great server and everyone working there wanted to make sure we enjoyed our food. I had... More
