“Great Pizza & Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

A great place for anyone to eat. Located in Heavenly Village behind the gondola. We went for the margarita pizza which was excellent. Also shared a small caesar salad, which was a little too small. For 2 people I would get a size bigger. Drinks come in very large mason jars. We camped out to watch some hockey finals while we were there so its a good place to catch a game. They even changed the channel on a TV to the game we requested. Outdoor seating as well, there was live music on the night we went.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We enjoyed a Friday evening meal at Base Camp. There was a band playing and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the music. The Tai Chicken Pizza is delicious.

“Camp here for dinner at least one night in Tahoe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Super cool family place. The night we went there was a band, bean bag toss, and a hula hoop show outside. The garlic chips are excellent with pesto. The pizzas all have a signature twist. Some are quite unique. I had the pear and Gorgonzola and enjoyed it. The salads are also good. The base camp and mountain high (meat lovers) are both very good. The service was a little slow but the place was crazy busy. The kitchen made a small mistake and the manager gave us a free pizza for later. Overall great experience.

“Excellent pizzas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went to the place near the Gondola. Family atmosphere, very busy, about 45 min waiting time for dinner. But worth it! Food was very good & so was the service. We didnt have to wait long for the pizzas. The Greek salad was very nice too.

“A great but busy Pizza place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I'm not sure you can book, we got in early but this is a very busy spot. Service was excellent and the Pizza's amazing. A great selection of draft and bottled beers and wines.

All in all a great Pizza place. Twin it with the Base Camp Hotel your in Base Camp heaven!
