great pizza, great ambience and service

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.

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

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.
