In town for a week and wanted a pizza for lunch. Saw the reviews so I thought we would give it a try. People seem to complain about the time it takes for their pizza. My God the bloody thing is over an inch thick do they want it raw? Pizza was excellent, the crust was best I have ever... More

I did the slice combo (two slices and a drink for $10.50, or $11 w/credit card). The pepperoni was pretty good, but the garlic pesto was phenomenal. I was still a little hungry when I left, so I went down the street for gelato at Chocolate.

I mean, I was just so happy that friends were getting married in the Gaslamp because I could have Berkeley Pizza. A place that I dream about, yearn for, and try to find a replacement since I no longer live in CA. Though, I have never had true Chicago deep dish, this is what I imagine it to be. Flakey... More

We ate here upon a recommendation from a local. The pizza is different and interesting. It is deep dish and the topping is on the bottom and the sauce is on top. It tasted good. The combo of 2 slices and drink is reasonably priced and it was a good stop for lunch.

AS our guide said, "a combo between Chicago and NY style," Berkeley gives you that option. Not the greatest I've had...but for sure not the worst. Taste is good and good selection of beers as well. If you are in downtown, walking and want a quick bite, this could be your place.

Pizza wasn't bad. Not anywhere as much meat I was expecting....considering its a deep dish. It was tasty-ish though. Took a long time to get my food though. Overall, will not be coming back.

Berkeley pizza is an average pizza place not hit too great about it. The pizza was pricey and it wasn't worth it. The slices were small and the toppings were extra but were not even present. The pizza really didn't have a good taste to it. The service was very slow and the bathroom was disgusting.

Small place but good beer and pizza - at a reasonable price for the Gaslamp Quarter. Just fast simple and reasonable.
