Love this place! They have a great outdoor seating area that is perfect for the warmer months! The happy menu has great prices and lots of options. We had their 3 cheese crispy ravioli, Laura chenel goat cheese bruschetta, and a few of the personal size pizzas! Our favorite was the local and the classic but you really can't go... More

Service is professional if harried as the place is always busy. And it's always busy because the food is fantastic! The pizzas have imaginative toppings mounted on a delicious base. Salads are large and equally delectable. Roasted brussel sprout appetizer is yummy. And do not miss desert, the butterscotch budino is heavenly! Can't speak to the beer, but the wine... More

After arriving to Hilton Torrey Pines, we were looking for really good food that wouldn't break our travel budget. A few places suggested that Blue Ribbon Pizza would be great as it uses locally sourced ingredients, has friendly service, and it's open early enough to accommodate families with little ones. After our dining experience, I completely agree that this restaurant... More

Took my son to Blue Ribbon because I moved to a small town and miss fresh, big-city quality pizza! First up was a good-sized oval plate filled with small-size deep-fried brussel sprouts with applewood-smoked bacon, capers, and apple cider vinaigrette ($12). Yum! We practically inhaled the fork-tender little babies between my son's sips of lemonade and my glass of Santa... More

We sat outside and the weather as always was beautiful. The service was good . The Salads were excellent especially the Organic Baby Greens however we got a couple of the Artisan pizzas and they were average at best , not a great deal of flavor . I would definitely come back and try something else but not overly impressed... More

I am from the east coast with many areas known for their pizza, so I am a tough critic! The pizza at blue ribbon was amazing! The combination of flavors mixed together perfectly! We also ordered the beet salad which was spot on! There's a pizza for everyone at this place! Highly recommend

Hands down this is the best pizza you will ever had. I unfortunately had to move to the East Coast and this place puts NYC pizza to shame. Local, fresh ingredients.... you will love it.
