The pizza sauce and crust is so good. Any pizza we order, is great. We always order a large and have extra for the next day. The price is good too. Friendly people. And great cooks in the back. It seems the staff likes each other too. That makes for a enjoyable experience.

We needed a place to hold a baseball team and their families. I had an antipasto salad which was very good. The pizza and pasta were delicious. They have many different beers on tap and wine by the glass. Enjoyable place!

Our group arrived in South Lake Tahoe later on Labor Day and were looking for a place to eat. We found Grand Central Pizza & Pasta!! Brian was very gracious helping us to order the type of beer our German friends were looking for to quench their thirst after a long ride. We were also delighted to learn that Brian... More

Pesto Spaghetti and Calzone are the best. All the food is wonderful beer is cold too. Worth the stop. Located on Highway 50 near Ski Run Blvd

WE visited Grand Central Pizza and Pasta. We had a nice dinner. The pizza crust was cooked perfectly and had good chew. The sauce was mild and flavorful. The cheese was fresh and melted perfectly. We ordered the pest chip appetizer. They were perfectly baked and had great flavor. We also ordered a veggie calzone. It was baked well, but... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. The owner was very courteous and nice and made us really comfortable. There were eight of us and we ordered pizzas for lunch. The pizzas tasted heavenly and were probably one of the best pizzas that we have had in the recent past. Also, there is ample parking here for customers.

We're sad to say Grand Central changed ownership or management, not sure which, but they completely forgot the old quality mantra. Even worse, we were bragging to visitors about what great pizza they had...before the change. Mainstay of Tahoe, sad.
