This is a great pizza restaurant/bar right behind Petco. The service was great as well. I took some co-workers of mine one night and they insisted that we return two days later for lunch. You won't be disappointed.

Dough is Very good and so are the toppings. The place was a bit too noisy since it's also a bar, but overall a great experience!

3 years ago I would say this was a unique experience. However today its very commonplace. With that being said they execute and it was great. Its a trendy modern restaurant with the industrial atmosphere. They take different approaches like serving pizza on giant pans, sitting on couches and lounges, mules served in mason jars instead of copper mugs, and... More

After a long day of travelling we called in here hoping for a quick and easy dinner. We definitely got more than we bargained for - beautiful thin, crispy and tasty pizza that was better than our 'pizza express' usuals back in the UK! Two of us managed to finish off a large pizza - but we were very hungry!... More

The name says it all. I was reminded of pizza I ate throughout Italy. Basic ingredients and few allowing for that perfect bite that you just want more off. The place is a great gathering spot in downtown San Diego. Loved it!

My 16 year old son, husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat before going into Petco Park. We stood on the street corner after we walked out of the parking garage and I started checking TripAdvisor for advice. Basic popped up early and we walked in. What a fun experience! The ambiance is, well, "basic"...We ate in the... More

In town for some baseball and tried this joint based on a friend's recommendation. I'd definitely do this again. $30 for a large which fed 4. Out the door for $100 for 6 of us. Not usually a thin crust lover, but so glad we ate here. Ingredients are top notch choices, didn't have to wait long, service a bit... More

This was one of the first places that we visited in San Diego. We were warned that the pizzas were big, but we still ordered 3 pizzas for 4 of us. We tried the specialty pizzas- the meatball, the 410, and the mashed. It was too hard to pick a favorite of the three. They were all hot, fresh, and... More
