“Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

My husband, who is notoriously picky about pizza, said that it was the best pizza he had ever eaten. The service, staff, decor, all were great.

“Great Pizza with a Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

The Base Camp Pizza at South Lake Tahoe serves a variety of original pizzas including a Chicken Curry that are delicious. The prices are a bit high but the service and food quality were excellent. A great place to have a family lunch or dinner.

“Good but pricey pick-up pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We ordered pizza for pick-up once while on skiing vacation, and separately ordered cheese sticks once for pick-up. This place is super popular and packed, so we did not dine in. This pizza was not as good as our 6-years-long favorite pizzas from Fat City Food, which unfortunately closed earlier in 2013. Can't recommend the cheese sticks, which were just OK. I had the four cheese pizza and my husband had pepperoni pizza. We both liked the flavor and texture of our pizza but both felt it tasted extremely similar to Costco cheese and pepperoni pizzas, and thus felt we overpaid!
