One of the best thin crust pizzas I've had. Very simple menu. Pizza and salads. Of course beer and mixed drinks are available. Certainly worth the effort to get there . Would highly recommend

Stopped in for a late lunch and loved the basic salad and pizza. The wait staff was very nice and willing to change up one of the cocktails to accommodate a dietary need - and funny about it too. Everything was great. Recommend!

San Diego is not known for its pizza. However, if you're looking for pizza that tastes like back home (NYC, Montreal, Chicago), then look no further than Basic. The crust was perfect and the toppings were even better. Build your own pizza in choosing from many toppings. The salad is a nice way to start your meal. The candied almonds... More

If you are looking for a place to have truly remarkable wood-fired pizza in a very trendy setting, this is your place. While the atmosphere is very stark and much seating on low tables and ottomans, the pizza is some of the best anywhere. The bacon and baked potato does not sound appealing, but is fantastic. Salads were large and... More

We were randomly looking for a place to eat, drink and watch the game and came across this place and we are glad we did. The service was top notch, the pizza was amazing, our party had one of the best times we have had in our frequent visits to San Diego

If you like tasteless burned cardboard this is the place. We heard people saying this is the best in town. Sadly no. We love pizza. But as east coasters I can say this is horrible.

I am not someone who love pizza - especially the chain restaurant type. This was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Very thin crust with fresh ingredients. We had the meatball pizza with fresh mozzarella, ricotta, basil and garlic. EXCELLENT! I also love the urban open feel of the place. Would definitely return on my next visit.
