I liked the sauce, not too spicy, just mellow enough, good chewy crust. One of the best of the hundreds of thousand pizza places in San Mateo. We always get take-out.

Supposedly the best pizza in the Bay Area. Unfortunately the worst service I've ever experienced. We placed our group party order at noon, to be delivered by 8pm for a hungry sports team. 60minutes later and the stoned out receptionist has no idea where our 20 pizzas are, except to repeatedly say that it should be 10 minutes away.

The pizzas are good, although sometimes they seemed over baked and the crust is dry. They deliver, which is the number one reason I order from them.

we stopped in for pizza last night. it's been a while since we've been there. there was a time when each pizza was totally predictably delicious. since we pretty much always order the same - pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms, we expect the same pizza. but we don't stop too often any more simply because many times it's just not good....

I held a corporate lunch meeting at my home and ordered delivery of two large pizzas from North Beach Pizza. The topping side was fine but the entire bottom crust of both pizzas were completely black. It was an embarassing moment but luckily my guests had a good sense of humor. We just ate the toppings and left the burnt... More

We were craving some pizza so we decided to stop by and try it. Overall it was a good meal. We didn't actually order any pizza. Instead we had the fettuccini Alfredo, ravioli, and lasagna. The lasagna could have used more spices, but the ravioli and fettuccine Alfredo were quite good. I must say the minestrone leaves a lot to... More

Never been before but had a great pizza. Lots of cheese and fresh toppings, crust any way you like it. Ceasar salad was awesome! Would come back again for sure! Very good service from friendly staff.

While riding my bike through San Mateo, I had the primal hankering for pizza and beer. There were several pizza joints that empty -- not so for North Beach. A "Best Pizza of the Bay" may have helped, but I noticed it was bit dated. Apparently, a "best pizza" sticker isn't perishable, because the pizza was excellent. If pizza isn't... More

Ordered delivery from this pizza place for a business lunch as recommended by co-workers. Pizza was good and priced decent, however, extremely overpriced for a salad tray! The Caesar dressing however was just awesome! Delivery was on time and pizza was still hot, so we all enjoyed it. I will never order a salad tray (for a large group) for... More
