This one is goooood.......

I had only had slices and pies from the two Capitola locations, and due to their limp crust, rated them average at best. The crust at the Pacific Ave location downtown is the bomb! I am not sure if they use the same kind of ovens in all the stores, because both Capitola places had the same... read more

I like being able to get pizza by the slice. While I do think the price for a single slice is a bit expensive, it hasn't stopped me from going. Everything I've tried, I've liked. Also, working a 3p-3a shift, it's nice knowing they're open until 2am. You walk in, pick your slice, or whole pie, pay, and enjoy. Sometimes,... More

The pizza is average. They have a bunch of different pizza's to pick from. I just feel that there is better pizza in Santa Cruz. The service was great and the atmosphere was great as well. They get you served pretty quick, so if your in a rush this is the place to go.

We ordered out on a saturday night for delivery and were told a hour and 45 minutes!! Went to pickup and that took nearly a hour. I was not impressed with the time it took. The pizza was good, not something to write home about but price very good.

This is the place to go for all kinds of pizza. If you buy a t-shirt you ger a free slice. The pizza is not cheap but it is good. If you eat in they have quite a few tvs showing sports.

Locals favorite pizza place. Love the clam pizza and the pesto pizza...plus all the others. They also have good salads which are packed to go. Perfect for taking to the beach, tailgating, or back at home when you don't feel like cooking. Dining inside is fine and quick if you need a bite before r after a movie. Enjoy!

I have heard about this place for years. My friends that have been there swear by it and now I understand why! I loved everything about Pizza My Heart. The pizza was delicious and very reasonably priced. In fact, we got three slices of pizza, one fountain drink (and they have the cool Coke machine where you can pick all... More

The pesto pizza is what I always come back for. Every year I come back to my hometown, and Pizza My Heart is one of my must-dos.

The place is a lot of fun. They have old photos of Santa Cruz and the surfing scene and other interesting stuff. The food is great, the staff is polite and efficient. Great place.

The pizzas here were awesome, thin style base that focuses on the quality toppings. Can't go past the tshirts deal either.. Look out for a photo from Australia.
