“Food is consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This CPK is a go to place when in Pasadena; parking is easy, and the food is always good. As a vegetarian, I find lots of variety. There are multiple vegetarian pizza and pasta options. All of the salads can be made without meat. I like that there menu is setup to easily accommodate meat and non-meat eaters so everyone in the group can find something good. I especially love the roasted veggie salad, the spinach and asparagus pasta, and the pear and Gorgonzola pizza.

Service at this particular CPK varies from poor to excellent. It seems it is poor when the place is slow, and gets better the busier they are. We have waited a lot longer for a server to come to the table on a slow afternoon, then on a jam packed Friday night.

“Always go home happy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Eaten here many times. Always happy. Good service, menu is improving with an attempt on gluten free, but looking forward to a gluten free pizza one day! Excellent location next to Westin Pasadena if you are staying there.

“Quality and service is always consistent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Now that the calories are listed for the menu items, you are able to order smart and healthy. It is always a good place to eat or take-away. It is conveniently located on Los Robles just off of Colorado Boulevard.

“Convenient to Westin Pasadena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Ordered take out and brought it back to my room at the Westin (adjacent to restaurant). This wasn't my first visit to CPK, but I honestly think this might be one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Do plan ahead: Ordered on a Thursday night at 8pm and when I went to pick it up there was a line of people waiting for a table.
