Scott and I don't eat out often but had heard such great things about Griff's. We definitely were not disappointed. We shared the pepperoni pizza and a great salad and it could not have been better. I have not ever been a big fan of pizza (I know I am weird!) but that pizza was exceptional and the salad even... More

Griff's has undergone new ownership in the recent past, and the food is as good as before, and there are daily creative specials in addition to the regular menu. Locals from Templeton and the north county support this pizza restaurant because of the great food, the family-friendly atmosphere, and the small town vibe. It's our version of "Cheers," where the...

Griff’s is a casual Templeton eatery which offers decent pizza, entrees, and salads. I particularly love the Cowboy Cobb. The chicken on the salad is warm and juicy, and the garlic ranch adds a new twist to an old classic. I also like the cracker crust, “ultra thin” pizza crusts. They also offer panini, calzones, and have a blackboard of... More

Griff's Pizzeria has re-opened after a long remodel due to a fire several years ago. Unpretentious, casual dining with super friendly staff. Pizzas are fantastic, bring a bottle of wine - $5 corkage fee. Drive slow through Templeton or you'll miss Griff's -- worth the stop each time!

We drove down the main street of Templeton and selected this restaurant because it looked rustic and very lively. It is family run and the menu of Italian specialties is extensive, so don't think of that only as a pizza place. We were amazed at the size of the portions of the main course salads we ordered and they were... More

We ordered and took it for take out. Nice little place and good quality pizza. Looks like they have lots of dinner options. Place is very casual inside, but nice enough. Seems very family friendly.

Highly recommended. We are huge fans of this place...keep on going back for more! We LOVE the wedge salad, the pizza, the calzone, and the spaghetti with meatballs. That's all we have tried there so far, we're still exploring the menu. Everything is fresh and flavorful, wonderful combinations of flavors and nice featured dishes that vary each time we have...

Went on a week night. I ordered some food to go. I then asked the "cook" if he could make up some app. For me and he strait told me were not doing that tonight. Ok no app! Then while waiting for food another patron sitting at the table behind me decided he wanted to be confrontational. He Got up... More

Good pizza, but not great and not the greatest wine options. It would be great if a lighter and more Mediterranean-inspired pizza is added to the list. The produce and wine in the area warrant the use of the local beauty!
