Great spot for kids

Great place for kids! Pizza by the slice, salads, awesome space-age soda machine. We came here for my son's 10th birthday. The restaurant is located at Lytton Plaza (for outdoor seating if you wish) which often has live music. There's also a fun fountain kids can play in. Pop across the street to... read more

Came here today for lunch before heading to the airport. Ordered the combo: slice of pizza, drink, and a Cesar Salad. Food was good, many options, and friendly service. Recommend

Classic college town atmosphere but the pizza was surprisingly good and great tasting add was the salad. Could not beat they price! They could use some air conditioning though as hot pizza and hot air aren't great combos.

The pizza is consistent and good. Because of the location the slices are hot and fresh, the sauce is the right balance of garlic, sweetness and tang that brings out the slightly saltiness of the mozzarella.

Reasonably priced, passable NY style pizza is hard to find in CA. Order at the counter, no table service. Good, decent priced salads too.

Walking University Ave in Palo Alto and stopped in for a meal - the price was good, the pizza was great (though the crust left some room for growth) and being able to sit outside in the mini parklet next door was nice.

For a single slice of pizza type place, Pizza My Heart is a good place to go. Its a favorite of Stanford students as well. I like it that there is the small plaza park with a fountain area to sit at after getting my pizza. Service is friendly and good.

They have one of the best locations for a restaurant. It's kind of/part of a "park". The pizza is much better than Pizza Hut but not as good as El Fornaio.

Great for a quick lunch bit after hang out at the Apple store. The crest is amazing the marries with the tomato sauce and cheese perfectly. The vegetables on the vegie are fresh and crisp. A must when in the PA area.

Stopped in after hanging out in Palo Alto, but before heading to our airport hotel for an overnight stay before leaving out of SFO. Ordered the Fort Point pizza - it was really yummy. They load the toppings up pretty high and it was very filling. The sauce and cheese were very fresh tasting. We were just looking for an... More
