We ate here twice on our trip. I had pizza both times and my wife had a pasta dish the second time. Food was well prepared and served hot. Bread was a fantastic appetizer Service was good on both occasions.. Plenty of parking and a friendly staff.

We love Pizza Nova, their pizza, and their views! The restaurant looks out over the marina so you can see all the fancy yachts nearby. We always get pizza and beer, and it never fails.

We had just arrived in San Diego from a very long trip from Ma. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel. The recommendation was just what we wanted. Just a short walk across the street. Delicious food , beautiful venue overlooking the harbor. Beautiful sunset. A bit slow on the delivery of the meal, but worth the wait.

Went here based on a recommendation by our hotel. Craft beer options were the drink of choice. There were lots of pizza options, but our son tried a wrap and it was phenomenal. Our Hawaiian pizza was good, though! Free garlic bread knots were a nice touch. Staff was friendly and helpful in telling us what to do locally.

This is a good location on bay and the yacht harbor, at one step of the marina. This restaurant offers good cuisine but not fine cuisine. We had pasta (lasagna) and pizzas, everything was okay, the lasagna called "famous" would need a face-lift in order to deserve that title. But, a really good place to stop for beer and pasta...

We looked at several places before ultimately choosing Pizza Nova. I'm sure glad we did. The atmosphere was great. It's right on the bay, so it was cool to see all the boats. The staff was very friendly and attentive. And the pizza was very, very good. We also had the artichoke dip for the appetizer, which was also very... More

The staff was great, Houston helped us last night. I can't eat any Dairy so I was a bit worried about stopping by, but my husband wanted pizza so this is were we chose. They have an awesome and diverse menu; appetizers (calamari, salmon Cristina, baked garlic), pastas, salads, fish, roast lamb, etc as well as the traditional pizzas. They... More

Always a great place to eat and right across from a few hotels! Pizza, pasta and salads, with local craft brews and a good happy hour! Dessert is good too! Love dining outside or sitting next to the windows - pretending which yacht is mine!
