This is a classy but not too expensive Italian restaurant overlooking the yacht club marina with a varied menu that includes pizza.

Great meal and service. staff were very friendly and attentive. Had a small pizza with garden salad and the salad was sensational. Seriously not what you would expect out of a normal garden salad.

We love love love to pick up friends and family from the San Diego airport, because we know we will be visiting Pizza Nova. We have been there many times, the food is always superb, service is great and the ambiance is wonderfully casual, sitting beside the docks and watching the activity. This place is great for groups or for... More

Saturday evening. I mentioned to my husband we should get to Pizza Nova before the crowd. We were staying at a hotel across the street. Convenient and an easy quick walk and can't comment of the parking issues. When we arrive there were already quite a few customers inside. Very nice atmosphere and décor, right on the harbor. We like... More

The restaurant has a great ambience, open and gently modern. The view out onto the harbor, particularly in the evening, was beautiful and peaceful. A great setting to have a meal. My server was friendly and wonderful, though not readily available throughout the meal. This didn't seem to be a staffing issue, but hard to know. The bread was good,... More

The view in their upstairs area was awesome for all of our friends and family who have not seen much of san diego. The staff was great, and we all had plenty to... More

Started off with some bread knots that were terrific. The setting is casual, but the food is good. We were only in town for a week, but chose to stop in here twice for pizza. Definitely a step far above the chain pizza places.

I did find my clam pasta dish very salty, however the server took this off the bill as she saw that I didn't eat this. My husband enjoyed the pizza, it was very good. Great service and very busy
