First off, I am very thankful the server here stopped us from ordering a salad and two small pizzas. The pizzas are HUGE, even the smalls. We split a small pizza and a salad between two of us and still had leftovers, making it a really good value. The atmosphere was very fun as well. It was a very enjoyable... More

Really great spot for pizza! This place has a really fun atmosphere too! We tried the mash potato pizza and it was delicious! Can't wait to go back next time i'm in San Diego!

The salad was delicious and the pizza was AMAZING! The gluten free pizza was absolutely the best I have ever eaten. It wasn't the frozen shell that most places serve. It was fresh and just like the other pizzas they serve. It's fun that they serve it on a tray and cut in straight lines. He atmosphere is cool too.

Very good pizza and good location/proximity to hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and beer selection was adequate. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in the Gaslamp district that wanted a good pizza and a good price.

Stopped at this Bar to get a To-go Pizza and had a beer while waiting. Very busy 20 to 30 something bar that was very busy. Bartenders were friendly even though they were working their butts off as the place was packed. Got a small NY style pie that was big and good. Saw the large puzza, and it comes... More

Create your own pizza or order one of the restaurants fav’s. They also offer gluten free pizzas. The pizzas are large, and fairly thin – so you will be surprised how much you can actually eat. The staff is friendly and the vibe is cool with an industrial interior. I would say the pizza is good, but nothing I will... More

Dropped in here with a friend of mine while visiting San Diego. The space has an industrial decor but is comfortable. The restaurant combines a big city bar atmosphere with a restaurant, and it works. The music is just a bit loud but not terrible. The pizza is AMAZING! There are a variety of toppings you can add a la... More

Love the industrial look of the place. Very comfortable environment. Pizza is outstanding!!!!! We ordered a large Red pie with various toppings... Omg is it was so good! We ate the whole thing! We should have ordered a small. The salad was so fresh and yummy, it was also a large; I think a small would have done too. But... More
