Delicious Late Night Delivery

We were only in the area overnight and had to be on our way to the airport at 4:30 in the morning. Pizza Nova was suggested by our front desk. We ordered the Alfredo pasta with chicken and mushrooms. It was also delivered with garlic rolls. The meal was absolutely delicious. We had a berry... read more

Had "The Works" without the onions, bell peppers and anchovies (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and black olives). Very good wood fired pizza. Service at the bar was great - watched the football playoff game with sound which was a bonus. Will visit again.

We live nearby and this is our "go to" place. Great service, good lists of wine and brews, excellent pasta, pizza, salads, sandwiches, and soups. . . And those hot, little garlic rolls!!

We were looking for somewhere to eat after a long day's sightseeing - without having to change for dinner. Pizza Nova's lot was full so we piled in and ate really well: garlic dough balls were too damn good. Chicken Tequila fettuccini went down a treat and my pizza was truly excellent: thin, crispy base, good sauce, plenty of toppings... More

Went here twice during a week long stay in January 2016. Service was great, view of the marina is beautiful, appetizers were 50% off during happy hour; all the food was good. Only criticism (if there has to be one) is that the roasted garlic appetizer was not prepared correctly and was difficult to eat. Otherwise, would definitely come back... More

I hadn't been to Pizza Nova since they relocated from Hillcrest. They now have a much larger venue and you feel like you're in a real restaurant - not just a pizza place. I ordered the pizza with prosciutto (which I don't see on their on-line menu right now so can't include the name of it). I don't like spicy... More

This small pizzeria tucked into a strip of shops prepares excellent pizzas in its wood-fired oven, verified by the constantly filling booths and tables and the number of takeout customers. The gourmet choices include gorgonzola/pear; BBQ chicken, Thai shrimp, vegetarian. Or, pick your own toppings (we did). The menu offers appetizers, salads, pastas, and more. The wine list surprises: offering... More

This was within walking distance of our hotel, so we ate here a couple of times during our stay. We had pizza and pasta with marinara. Enjoyed the harbor view while having our meal.

Every time we visit San Diego, Pizza Nova is a must visit. Their pizza is delicious and the Garlic Knots are to die for. My husband says their pizza is his favorite of all time. He really likes that they use cornmeal under the crust.

We love this place and it is always consistently good. From great craft beer, good wine selections, wonderful salads, pizza and pastas, it is a good restaurant with a fair price point. As an added bonus, it has a lovely marina view.
