Isaac makes the most delicious yummiest pizzas, with fresh ingredients & varied toppings. I especially loved the salads, which were also fresh, & innovative! The place is near Lake Merritt, has a great wall mural, music and ambiance. I was there in the evening for a friends' bday, really fun!

Great pizza (we tried the pepperoni, margarita and the veggie one) and beer during happy hour and sat outside. Tad expensive though :(. This place is literally 1 min from our house but it's a little expensive for our budget, but happy hour deal is not bad! Love the design (outside and inside) of the place and the staff is... More

Best pizza in Oakland. Isaac is a master of crust design and has experimented with a lot of different pizza crusts since taking this place over almost two years ago. The interior has not changed but the Pizza has. Highly recommend anything on the menu.

These guys have worked on their dough for months and are making amazing pizzas in Oakland. Their mushroom special has 3 kinds of mushrooms and their margherita pizza has heirloom tomatoes, it's like heaven. Fresh ingredients, always! Best pizza award in 2015!

Pizza here is so flavorful -- I like their pesto and also their mushroom one. The place is also kid-friendly, so what a great stop for families. The last time we went here was last week with some friends, and it was great to see lots of people in as well. It helps that it's very near our house making... More

So I picked this place based on a good review here, but we let our son think that he was choosing where to eat based on the name! It was a good choice either way. We were literally the only people there at 1:00 pm on a Friday...not sure what that says about the place but the clerk was friendly,... More

This spot and refreshing, satisfying pizzeria has been around for 30 years (?). A friend of mine knew of the conversion from neighborhood market to pizzeria when she lived a half a block away from it. The pizza is delicious: thin crust, with great toppings, the beer is top-notch selections and the staff will accommodate you if you wish to... More
