The restaurant was crowded at 5:45, and we were lucky to get a table on the outside porch.This is a trendy restaurant that seems to have become very popular in the Encinitas area. I don't know why. My wife and I split a pizza with pepperoni. It was burnt and too spicy. We didn't finish it, though it was modest... More

Visiting from Chicago, my dear friend brought me here for dinner. It was perfect. We shared a salad with prosciutto, pears , arugula & goat cheese. It was extremely fresh, bright & delicious. Then we had their 'signature' pizza. Homemade mozzarella, ricotta, lemon & basil. I can honestly say it was one of the best things I have ever eaten.... More

I met a friend for lunch at BR. We had the lunch specials and both the soup and salad were delicious. They're most known for their pizza, but I'll save that for my next visit there. You can sit inside or out. Outside has a patio and then a more open area. Everything about BR makes me want to go... More

We came in for lunch and ordered 2 lunch special combos. The salad was great but the crostini was lackluster. The soup and meatball slider looked better. We ordered dessert to share and that was a mistake. The pudding was delicious and I don't even like butterscotch. Next time I'm ordering my own.

The pizzas had a thin crunchy crust with a variety of toppings. The wait staff was very attentive, had heated outdoor seating and must be a 'hot spot' because many people were coming and going.

This was a very pleasant surprise for both my wife and I. We had eaten at a big buffet the night before and we didn't want to eat too much for lunch. We went to the pizzeria not wanting to order pizza. The day we were there they had a special that you could order one appetizer and one salad... More

Visited during happy hour with my wife. Hefeweizen was good along with brussel sprouts. Had the Abe froman pizza and the sausage was good but crust was a little hard. Good experience for $41 bill.

This place is very popular with locals so if you go during peak hours, you will have to wait. We had another great meal here--roasted corn chowder soup, meatballs, the BLT salad and beverages. The staff is friendly and efficient. The pizzas are very popular and they use a wood fired oven. They have a great dessert--caramel pudding but we... More

The staff favorite pizza is one of the best pizzas I've ever had. They have gleuten-free pizza and organic produce. Make sure you know it's going to be thin crust. They also support local farmers and businesses.
