Tasty pizza topping options with interesting, fun appetizers. Fennel sausage is a featured topping. Happy hour mitigates the higher end pricing although the portion sizes appear to be smaller. Crusts are thin and crispy (susceptible to charring), toppings fresh and creative, saucing okay. Good selection of salads and beverages. The fast, friendly, competent service elevated our experience from average to... More

Blue Ribbon has awesome food. It's always fresh and never disappoints in quality but it's a bit on the pricey side. They are known for their wood fired pizzas which run on average $16 dollars a pizza. The crust is very thin and crispy. My favorite is the My Father's and the Blue Ribbon. The salads are always great especially... More

Good food, delicious Brussels sprouts, interesting pizzas. I would not rush back, however. The service was not great, the table was left messy after dessert was served, waters were never refilled. The main reason I might not come back is the cramped layout. Everyone walking by seemed like they were on top of our food. There are many pleasant restaurants... More

My wife and I were recommend this place by the staff at the Scotty Cameron Putter Studio. Wow! Did they hit it out of the park. Cool little patio seating on a great SoCal day. We both ordered pizzas and craft beer and were overwhelmed by the deliciousness of their food. The home made fennel sausage is so hot and... More

This is just a great little place to have a fabulous salad and gourmet pizza, along with a very good wine selection!

Very good wood fire pizza. Fresh ingredients. Being from the Chicago area, I had the Abe Froman pizza. Very good. Small,but cozy dinning area.

We have been visiting this pizzeria for the past three summers. They make GREAT and innovative pizzas. House made fennel sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and onions grace my favorite pie but there are many other choices. This year, we discovered the value of happy hour from mid-afternoon to 6:00 p.m. with 1/2 price appetizers (deviled eggs, Caesar salad and salami were... More

Excellent, best NY style brick oven pizza in Southern California, great happy hour prices and selections of food, craft beer & wine. Their bruschetta is to die for. Highly recommended and will definitely return the next time I'm in Encinitas.

I've eaten here two times. The first was a little more than 2 years ago. The second was last week. Both times my visit was prompted by locals and the food was great!! The store front is small and popular so plan ahead. As most restaurants, you can pick up an order to go. Whether you eat in or take... More

This very tiny, always crowded restaurant has been buzzed about and raved about in the local press ever since it opened. Since it is always crowded it took us awhile to get here and both of us could only shrug our shoulders in disbelief over the buzz. We went here for a Sunday lunch after church and there was plenty...
