“Pizza=Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Mike at Spiritos brought Italy to Carlsbad!
Amazing food, very quickly, and reasonable priced. Over time (I used to work around the corner), I've tried almost everything on the menu, and it's all been satisfying! But, if you're going to try here, you must try the Pizza. It's one of the best I've ever had!

“Lovely pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The thin crust pizza was excellent, not too salty. They offered fresh bread to start and it was excellent. We sat outside on the patio, they had heaters on low... just right.

“Best Pizza, period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I have been eating at Spiritos for more than 20 years. The pizza is the best I have tasted in Southern California. It is New York/New Jersey thin crust which is like the pizza I ate growing up. The rest of the menu is also excellent. Prices are more than reasonable. There is little ambiance in this small location but people come here for the food. I strongly recommend.
The restaurant is located on El Camino across from the Carlsbad Mall in the Von's shopping center. The Carlsbad Village address is the former location frfom 5 years ago.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I was looking for Spiritos but instead found Gregorios....ends up the name has changed but the food is still the same (i.e. EXCELLENT). The pizza (for the kids) was great and my eggplant parm was to die for. I had the choice of plain pasta or ravioli to go w/the eggplant.... it was my good fortune to choose ravioli because it was OUTRAGEOUSLY fabulous ... and when I go again that's what I'm going to get. (It was huge, filled with fab cheese, and obviously homemade.) Service was iffy ... seems as if we got stuck at a table that wasn't being waited on by any particular waiter/waitress .... but it did seem as if everyone else was getting great service. Nevertheless, SO GOOD and I'll definitely go again!
