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.

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.

Lived in CA for a bit and this is one of the must visit places. Cute restaurant friendly atmosphere. But the food WOW AMAZING and I come from France! Looved the pizza but I was literally in the sky when I tried THE DESSERT- so good, no surprise it's the only one ! Please open restaurants in Europe somewhere wherever!

Had a delicious meal, with all of the food top notch. It was a shame however that the service was not comparable to the food quality. Wait staff were very brusque and in a hurry to move us along.

We like the pizza but the wait kills it. No reservations and Ver few tables. Service is mediocre. Encinitas has so many other choices. If they ever get a bigger locale, we may try again

Stopped in after seeing the sign out front advertising organic, homemade sausage and craft brews. No disappointment here! Kudos to Kevin at the bar for recommending the special of the day pizza and offering tasting of different brews and wine to compliment the pizza. This was one of the best pizza experiences outside of New York City. The crust was... More

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
