My friend and I wanted to get a quick bite to eat. We discovered this gem. We walked in and was told to sit anywhere we desired. Our waitress came soon after and took our drink order. We settled on one of the House Special pizza, consisting of Ham & Pineapple. The pizza was delicious. The ambiance was great along... More

Order a large pizza with all kinds of meats on it. excellent. A little expensive but completely worth it. I had it for dinner one night by myself, and lunch, then dinner, then dinner again. Huge pizza. Really tasted good. Quick delivery on a Friday night.

My wife and I took the road trip to the Bay Area from Nebraska. The reason for our trip was to see AC/DC concert at the San Francisco's beautiful baseball stadium - AT&T Park. Prior to the show, we decided to stop by this place for our lunch because it was not very far to our hotel where we stayed.... More

It was a busy day at work and even though there are a number of dining choices here in west Berkeley, even they become predictable at times. This is how spoiled we have become! :) in addition, it was too busy for me to leave the office so delivery was my only option. This was my first try at North... More

This seems to be one of the many good but overlooked places in Berkeley. They have very good pizza (I like the Coit Tower) but also pasta and sandwiches. They offer a variety of affordable Italian wines plus the usual selection of beers and soft drinks. Every time the service has been good. They offer delivery and the online order... More

We were greeted by the host and waitress in a very sincere, kind, professional, courteous manner. The food was very delicious. The decor was fun and hip. My daughter and I (attending a parent orientation the next morning) felt we discovered a secret, hidden treasure. We plan to take family and friends when we visit in the future.

The pizza is outstanding and fresh...the crust (thin) is perfect. the Greek and Caesar salads are wonderful...so good food. The Service however was lack luster and dis-interested..... Give this place a try and hope for better service.

The place was once OK enough, until a few years ago, and it changed managers, and they are there only to collect the money, it is like they do not care what goes out of the kitchen, or the cleanliness of the place. There are too many nice places in the area to go here. (greasy soggy pizza, stale bread,... More

I and we have been driving past this restaurant since it was an International House of Pancakes back in the 1970's (it became North Beach Pizza in 1982), but never had occasion to stop in. Yesterday we did, and the pizza was REALLY, REALLY GOOD! Considering the fact that it is in a major metropolitan area, together with what you... More
