Great brick oven pizzas in a neighborhood bar setting. The B(E)LT with optional cooked to order egg was really good as were the perfect fries and house salad. Excellent choices of bottled and draft beer and a full bar, with special house designed cocktails. Attentive...More

Very unique with the penny's outlining the small building in the parking lot of The Lark restaurant. The basics...parking is non-existent, but you may get lucky on the street or valet. There is only outdoor bench seating, and not plentiful. A lot of people appear...More

Hi, Pam. I used to live in Gilbert! I do not know if Lucky Penny has gift cards. Probably best to call them.
Pam G
Can I get a gift card for Lucky Penny in the mail to send to my family in Santa Barbara?
