We liked the Calzone and a slice

Stopped by with some friends today. Our friends son ate here 10 years ago and has been out of the country and state serving our country. He asked us to see if this memorable establishment was still in business...He was so happy to see that it was indeed still open...We sat down at the back table... read more

The pizza here is pretty good and at a decent price. Not much to look at but it's close to the beach you can just sit outside and get all the scenery you need. The giant is huge good to feed my whole family

This place started about a decade ago ... it has adequately priced NY Style pizza pies ... one of the few places that offers this in North County ... I believe the original owners were actually from NY.

The price isn't bad for the pizza. It isn't the best pizza I've had, but not the worst. I would still come back and by a slice or two. Still looking for a great New York style pizza though!

Good pizza with friendly service. You can order a whole pizza or customize a slice. The giant pizza is a sight to see (and requires a large crowd to consume!). A special order salad was no problem.

The pizza was very good and if you want to feed an army or a large hungry family get the GIANT - this thing is enormous. The place is very low key pizzas are cooked fresh and the ingredients are fresh.

You want NYC pizza? This is the place. Neighborhood gem. No frills - who needs them for a slice? They will do your slice anyway you want it. Thin crust - I like it crispy too. Nice family run place. Food is ALWAYS good. Many other choices too, I just never get past my favorite slice....

Every time I visit Encinitas I have to stop by for a big slice of heaven at this low-key neighborhood pizza parlor. Whether I go for the standard sausage, pepperoni, and cheese or their gourmet artichoke, sun-dried tomato, eggplant, spinach, ricotta, or pesto toppings I'm always pleased by the result. I love their thin crust and tangy tomato sauce. With... More

We had a big group gathered on Neptune Ave and decided on pizza. We picked MGP because of the positive reviews and giant pizzas. We picked the California, all meat and the New Yorker. We placed the order on a Busy Saturday night and the pizzas were delivered in about 30 or 40 minutes. Fresh and hot. Everyone loved the... More
