I had just arrived in Encinitas for a visit with a friend when I learned that (1) this was the best pizza place in the area and (2) it was closing THAT DAY! Of course the family I was staying with wanted a final meal from them. The staff was friendly and explained (probably to hundreds of people) why they... More

We lived in Encinitas shortly and I really liked taking my kiddos here. We would walk around downtown, then stop here for some pizza, and then head over to Moonlight Beach. The slices are huge and the prices are good. You can sit inside or outside, and the staff is always very friendly! Great location. Definitely recommended.

Excellent! Always looking for that Philadelphia taste! This comes pretty close! Get the giant ones, less crust and more yummy

The wife and I love cruising the coast when we have nothing to do. We live in Murrieta CA. Since I am always scoping out possible dive spots, we found this Pizzeria by accident. This hole in the wall, makes the pizza you would find in Little Italy downtown San Diego. Even when it gets cold, the cheese is still... More

Kids love this pizza. Ask them to kid cut it and they cut it into squares or else the slices are huge! We've had them deliver to us at the beach which is a huge plus on top of the fact that its good.

Staying in Encinitas for a week. Didn't want to go out for dinner. Staying in the motel room to watch Sunday night football and ordered a pizza for delivery. So perfect for the game. Nice crust and abundant fresh toppings. Got the works pizza with jalapenos. Saved some for breakfast the next morning, so yummy reheated in the oven. Will... More

No foolin, that's a big slice. And at a fair price too considering the size. The pizza itself is pretty standard beach boardwalk pizza if you ask me. Not bad at all though. Would definitely go back.

We are New Yorkers so were a little dubious getting pie from a place with "Manhattan" in its name. Worry not, we were not disappointed. During a weeklong stay in the area, we ate here twice. That's saying a lot!

We stumbled upon this little gem last year. My kids have asked to go back several times. It is worth the hour drive for us! The pizza slices are truly GIANT, and taste great. Watching them toss the the crust up in the air and make these pizzas is so much fun. The place is fairly small, but many people... More

This pizza is delicious!! The giant size was overwhelmingly huge and fed 5 people for $35! Excellent. The owners seem to know everyone in the neighborhood too!
