Best Pizza near PCH

Located in a nice little area just off State, you can get original Italian pizza for a reasonable price. Nice location, many locals, good outside setting. Food is outstanding.

We came by on a local'a recommendation for the best latte and had a chance to look at the menu so we came back for lunch. Small off the beaten path but great outdoor vibe (but for the construction they serenading while we were there). The small building is clad with over 50,000 pennies. We had the kale salad and...

This is a great little place for morning with the best sticky buns I have ever enjoyed! Good espresso and pizza and salads as well. Feels like you have found a little hidden gem, the small building is covered in pennies and glows when the sun hits it. Well, worth seeking out!

Not a huge selection, but the sandwiches and pizzas are totally delicious. Great choice for a super casual lunch in the Funk Zone.

Same restaurateur as The Lark, on the same grounds. You order from the counter and your order is brought to the outdoor casual benches. We had the arugula salad, pizza and pulled pork sandwiches. It was all really delicious. Great for lunch.

The muffins and coffee were good, but don't get the egg dishes! They come served in little black pots that go in the oven, I guess. The top and edges of all three that we ordered we burned to black ash! Guess what? The whole thing tasted burned! I'm not a fan of over cooked eggs, so I was really... More

When writing travel reviews I always wrestle with the conundrum of whether to share a great new find or keep it to myself. Lucky Penny is the latest test of my journalistic integrity. Sure everyone knows Lucky Penny has great pizza, but seemingly no one realizes that they also serve a fantastic breakfast. On a recent Sunday morning I smugly... More

What a perfect day had the pizza. SO GOOD. Nice and crispy and full of flavor. I can't tell you what pizza to get I tried 3 different ones and I could decide which was my favorite. Also tried the pulled pork sandwich very tasty ask for more sauce

We stumbled across this little pizza place on aback road in Santa Barbara. We had great thin crust pizza and salad while sitting in this casual rustic courtyard. What could be better?
