“Good times come to and end!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Sadly, the halcyon days of CPK at this location (after 20+ years) has come to an end.
The restaurant is now closed and being remodeled for another use.
CPK was a landmark location for family dining in this city and it will be missed.
You can still find a smaller version of the 'store' at the Stanford Shopping Center for those who loved CPK's wide variety of pizza, delicious pastas and salads!
Thanks to CPK for its quality product and reasonable pricing. You will be missed!

“More than Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The ambience here is wonderful - large windows in a great location off University Avenue in Palo Alto. Our family comes here whenever we want to have a great meal at a reasonable price. While the pizza is superb, their other dishes are just as fresh and tasty. Large selection of salads and pasta dishes. Service is always good. They regularly update their menu, so one never tires of coming here! Highly recommend for families.

“Disappointed with food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My husband and I stopped in after an afternoon appointment in Palo Alto to have a late lunch. The restarant was fairly empty at this time. I have eaten at a number of CPK's and always have had good service and consistent food. We ordered pizza's and appetizer soup. It was tasty and consistent with previous experiences. I always get the wild mushroom pizza, since I don't do 'red' sauce. Their salads are also good, and generously portioned.
