Love Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria

Everything about Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria is perfect: the food, decor, background music, lighting, everything. The downside is they do not except reservations so at peak dinning hours it can be a wait.

Great pizza and salad. Fresh and tasty. Service was very good from arrival to departure. Aside from pizza they seem to be known for their beer. I am not a drinker so I cannot comment on that, however, the coffee they served was perhaps the best I've ever had in a restaurant. If you are in the San Diego area... More

The wait was long on a Saturday night, but the pizza is excellent and so is the wine. Definately worth the wait.

This tiny spot is romantic, lovely, dark, and moderately priced. Casual and rustic, the personal size pizzas are full of savory goodness! I would recommend buying a few and sharing! The pudding is fantastic! This place can be busy, so call ahead and reserve!

It is located in a great outdoor shopping area so you can sit in or out and watch the passer-bys while you eat some delicious tasting pizza!

We stumbled upon this restaurant our first night of our vacation in Encinitas. Needless to say it set the bar for other places we visited in Encinitas. We sat outside under the heat lamps and had a really nice ambiance. Thin crust pizza with really interesting flavour combinations were the standout items for our group.

Have been there 5 times for happy hour and always good food and service. Last time we got food to go and it was thrown in a to go box that really didn't work for the food and at was pretty much ruined when we got home. The salad was also pretty average...pizza tastes great but pricey for the size...

Four of us went here for dinner. We went on a Thursday night and it was very busy. The pizza is very good. My husband and I shared one of the pizzas. We each had three pieces. The other two people we were with each had their own. If you have a big appetite, order your own. The restaurant is... More

I would go there for the cheese and truffle oil popcorn alone! Their creative pizzas are one-of-a-kind. An extensive selection of beers and ales. There is always quite a wait at peak dinner time, but worth the wait.
