Pudding...!!!!!!!

I love this place. It's tight but social. The pizzas are amazing. The popcorn is a must. And don't you dare leave without trying the pudding. The seating is a little tight so be prepared to be in everyone's way all the time if you are sitting inside. Also, be sure to be prepared to wait for a table.

Delicious unique pizza creations, and tasty craft beer selections. Also a great selection of starters. We chose the gluten free crust pizza with 5 kinds of mushrooms. Great service. Very busy restaurant.

Excellent food. I love their pizzas. They are thin crust, but that is what I prefer. All of the combos I've tasted are great. Their cheese is killer. Only problem... busy. Go at an off time. I'm a local and my favorite place for pizza

Visited this restaurant with a few girlfriends for an evening out. There was a wait when we got there, so they took a cell number and called us when our table was ready. It's a small restaurant, and it was tight getting in/out of tables...but not a big deal. They have some unique things on the menu. Things are organic... More

Waiter was excellent, pizzas were great and general feel of the place was very positive. We will be back. The best salad with candied walnuts I've ever had, so fresh. This is real food.

A small noise...crowded pizza place...w a good menu...appetizers, salads and pizza....not a consistent cuisine. When we go out for a meal, first we look for good food, then service and atmosphere...we absolutely need at least 2 of them.. To be fair, they have good music, use local produce...but.... Their food it's ok, service horrible and place too crowded...forget about talking...and,... More

Perhaps I didn't pick the right pizza, but what I experienced was totally average. Staff's Favorite pizza was surprisingly average. It's described as having basil, and it did - a very tiny bit of torn leaves of basil making it imperceptible to taste and added nothing special to the dish. Disappointing from start to finish, including the host who delivered... More

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
