Great pizza, but a bit pricey.

This is an excellent place for pizza right in downtown Pleasanton, but it is pricey for pizza. There are other options here--salad and pasta as well.

I saw several negative reviews, but decided to see for myself. The place has a long history going back to a Wells Fargo stop, a train stop and a brothel. The second floor is supposedly haunted. I found the servers to be friendly and engaging. Nice choice of wines. I went with a small pizza with pepperoni and spinach. It... More

I have not been here for sometime. This is why: Whenever I walk in this restaurant, I feel like I have invaded the owners privacy and I should leave. There is not a happy vibe at all here. The interior is shabby and dated, like the owner still has not stepped into the 21st Century. The food is only moderately... More

We had a hankering for pizza. And we were looking for some cute place to go. First we tried Sunol and there was nothing there and so we went on to Pleasanton. We'd never been to the Gay 90s before and we chose it because it looked so nice. It was a beautiful evening and so we sat outside and... More

The Gay 90's is a Pleasanton landmark and its pizza is deserving of that status. The atmosphere is great too, featuring lots of early- and mid-century signs and photos from Pleasanton.

Pizza here was great - staff is charming and the place seemed a buzz. It was late and we were hungry - it was a perfect stop to have a few beers and have some wonderful pizza. Interesting decor with all the weird history and newspapers - but other than that it was a treat to find this place.

This is my new favorite pizza spot in the tri-valley. No wonder this place has been there forever. I had the Frank's special extra thick, amazing. The staff is friendly and the pizza is best around. There is parking in the back and it is on main street so you can go for a walk afterwards. My only recommendation is... More
