“Great pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

We stopped in here for a take out pizza. Placing the order was pleasant with very friendly staff, wait not too long - there are plenty of shops around for browsing while you wait. Looked like a very nice restaurant to eat at too. The pizza was fantastic! I judge a pizza by if I enjoy the crust without all the toppings and this one definitely passed the test.

“very good and very good managed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

very good flat bread, very good chili rejeno. very good quesadilla and dessert. not very special the spinach artichoke deep.
Obviously we are talking about a family restaurant, but it is a good standard for the gender.

“Great location to meet friends!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This is a chain, but with their creative menu offerings and consistent quality, it is top notch! The "California" name says it all. There are so many UNIQUE pizza options!!! The Thai Chicken Pizza (offered with optional, but delicious, whole wheat crust) is full of unforgettable flavor. The pastas, appetizers, and specialty drinks (like several "great" Sangrias) are a plus. They offer a full bar (with several brews on tap) and the service is prompt and attentive! Everything you need for a fun outing with friends, or a relaxing meal after a shopping or movie outing.

“More than pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great salads as well. Love their italian chopped chicken salad, really yummy with their spinach flatbread. Feels low calorie but filling. Try the pear/gorgonzola pizza for an alternative. Quite tasty with a surprising delicious flavor.
