Of the two times I've had pizza from here, both where pretty good. One was during a birthday we went to pick up a whole pizza, sort of expensive but only because we got so many toppings on a whole pizza. The other time was after a movie when we went in for a slice. Fairly large slice, pretty cheap... More

Recently stopped by for a quick dinner while strolling Pacific Ave. and my expectations for good pizza were met once again. There is always a steady flow of customers, ensuring that the pizza will be oven fresh. Good quality ingredients prepared well make for a winning combination. Staff are also charming: young, inexperienced (is this your first job?) but friendly... More

My family ate here based on reviews we read about their pizza. Great location as it is in heart of downtown Santa Cruz. We sat outside in the evening and the streets and sidewalks are full of action. Pizza is above average but I would not suggest by the slice but rather order a full pizza off the menu. We... More

This place used to be really good. Since it expanded into a larger restaurant, it has gone way downhill. Many times since then, when I've called for delivery, the phone rings and rings and no one ever answers. Many times, when the pizza has been delivered, it is undercooked, hence the "Chucky Cheese" type pizza one of the other reviewers... More

It's a little chain, friendly staff, atmosphere is more like fast food restaurant, food (pizza / salami) is pretty good. Take 14inch only if you are really hungry. Price is okay, had two pizzas (salami) and a greek salad for 35$. If you want take away then order in advance, it takes 25 min otherwise.

Well - not the best I have ever had and a local friend still believes that it is better than the best in NY - I disagree - but we'll leave that debate to another day. Crust was very good,and quite chewy, sauce was also great and the cheese and pepperoni were delectable - nice and greasy. Some blot the... More

Newly transplanted to the west coast from the east, I seem to be gravitating more than usual to that which gives me a sense of comfort. As for food, within the DelMonte shopping center in Monterey, I'd gladly recommend this pizzeria selling delicious pizza recalling my time spent at NJ and Delaware beaches. The place is a bit pricey but... More

We stayed all night in Santa Cruz one night last week and were too tired to go out to eat. We tried to find a place that would deliver pizza and this one was recommended to us as about the only choice in the area. Wish we would have gone out instead. Delivery time was good, but this was greasy... More

Delicious pizza! We ordered a full-size since we all like the same toppings but we probably should have ordered separate slices because they were even bigger. There were fresh salads available in the refrigerator case as you enter and they have a soda machine with the 100+ choices (which seemed to always have long lines because kids couldn't resist trying...

The pizza was super good. The pepperoni slices are pretty greasy but the flavor was amazing! The restaurant was clean and they had every kind of shaker u can think to put on your pizza. My kids loved the 99 flavor soda machine too.
