“Best Slice I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Let's get one thing straight right off the bat. This is a DIVE. Don't expect to go here for atmosphere. With that said, the mrs' and I had a great time relaxing on the patio with a fresh made pizza pie. The ingredients were fresh, the cheese what thick and stringy, and the sauce was amazing. It was the best pizza I've ever had. These guys know their stuff. I would go with a party of 3-4 and order a fresh pie, though, and opt out of the reheated slice. Oh, and they had some good brews on tap. I highly recommend this joint.

“This Was a Zagat 2013?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

My husband thought he saw this restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives so he was excited to go. When we got there, I kept doing a double take to see if it was the same place. First of all, parking was horrible. We barely squeezed between the beer truck and parking spot in the back. They are a CASH ONLY establishment! We had to run across the street to the ATM. (Strike two). The pizza was reheated, with barely any cheese. The music of choice over the speakers was Headbangers Ball, so beware if you life the soft tunes; you will not get that here. I was shocked to see the Zagat sticker on the window when we left. On the plus side, they had a great variety of beers. Not impressed.

“Great New York Style Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Visited Pizzeria Luigi on a recent trip to San Diego, it is also a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives Joint! The Pizza tasted great, the only downfall is that it is extremely busy and they keep pies under a display case and reheat slices when ordered. If you have enough people or are hungry enough order a whole fresh pie!

“Fantastic thin crust pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

i've been there twice while visiting SD. they usually have 10 or so types of slices already made, plus you can order whole pizzas off the menu. I have a beer while waiting the 15 minutes or so for a whole pie. The crust and all of the ingredients are some of the best i've ever had. there are several choices of pizza including some without sauce or with white sauce. I love all kinds of pizza, but i have to say that Luigi'sis the best i have had because of the wide variety and the excellent thin crust.
