“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Went here for a lunch and a dinner and they were both great. The Napa Valley pizza was different and had a great flavour. Caesar salad was good also. Busy restaurant but didn't take too long to get in on a Friday night. Will return again.

“Unless you are one of the "Happy Hour" budget-minded patrons, this place is expensive & the food, service? IMHO Awful!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We are year-round locals. We ordered pizzas, and take out meals for four, respectively, while guests flew in for my gf's 9 day hospital stay. The food? Are you serious? How does Stuft Pizza irritate so many different people?

Even though I warned them that in spite of the "specials" someone told these tourists/ guests about, all of our takeout orders were missing a side (salad, paid for caprese) the young lady taking orders clearly did not understand what we wanted. We were placed on hold too many times and I do believe the lack of staff is what made our meals *over $100* a disaster.

Kindly avoid this place. Do yourselves a favor. They DO serve up a cheap (the cheap becomes expensive) happy hour on site but call/ order in and GOOD LUCK! The place is going down-hill. We wrote a high praise review a couple years ago, but.... This place? Sadly, downhill. Best!

“The new Palm Desert Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This was my first time at a Stuft Pizza but it won't be my last. The "classic" pizza was delicious. Well seasoned, ample ingredients and piping hot to the table. Well worth the price. The next time I will order the thin crust because I prefer a thinner crust but the regular crust was really, really good. My husband and I went on a Friday night about 6:30 pm and was told it would be a 20-25 min. wait but it only took about 15 mins before a table was ready. We will definitely return to this location. The manger came around twice to ask if everything was ok.

“Good Pizza, Poor Atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

I've been here 5 or 6 times and the pizza is very good. The restaurant is usually chaotic and loud however which really dampens the dining experience. There's usually a mix of crying and unsupervised children, with annoying and loud "drinkers" at the bar. Not my idea of a night out.
