“Great pizza and salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We decided to try out Basic Pizza after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. They offer one salad and many varieties of pizza. The salad is a mixture of organic greens with candied walnuts,fresh pears,gorgonzola cheese and a light vinaigrette. It is very tasty and the portion is huge, enough for two large salads. The pizza is a thin crusted pie and very tasty. A small is more than enough for 2-3 people. A great meal at a reasonable in downtown San Diego.

“Worth a trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I read the reviews & we decided to make a trip.
We ordered the mashed potato pizza & it is worth it.
Big pizza for a "small".
Service at the bar was good.
The venue has a cool vibe.
Nice vaulted ceilings.

Only draw back is the alcohol pricing. It would be nice to have a good draft beer for a good price. I understand higher pricing for late night club atmosphere. But if you just want a pizza it's a bit high.

“Pizza Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The industrial decor and ambience was just up my street...and more importantly the pizza was excellent.

Great service, good value.

Probably my favourite restaurant in downtown San Diego.

“Great pizza and salad that's made on the fly with high quality ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by this place based on TripAdvisor ratings. I can confirm they are dead on. The salad was fantastic. And the pizza comes in white or red with sseveral fresh toppings available. If you have ever been to Deweys you will feel tight at home. Give this place a try. Great place to grab a drink as well

“Not much of a decor but boy, what a pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I found this restaurant in tripadvisor. I went with my wife before a Padres game on may 4th 2013.
From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Stepping into the place, it doesn't look much better.
However, we were well treated by the staff, and the pizza was delicious!
I urge you, if you're in the San Diego area of visiting, to try Basic's pizza only once. Once you taste it, you won't forget it.
