“Pizza selection and quality are first rate”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We ate here twice during our visit to South Lake Tahoe. We all ate pizza, several different kinds, and found them to be excellent. Even as leftovers the next day, they tasted good. They used fresh ingredients and the crust was perfect. However, on the second visit we ordered other dishes, not pizza. These received mixed reviews. On a third occasion, Base Camp catered a dish served at a Marriott event and we found it very good-shrimp scampi in pasta.

“Outstanding Summer atmosphere and delicious pizza”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

I am a bit late in writing my review but visited south Tahoe in August. A friend had recommended this place when visiting during the ski season and raved about it. He was spot on! The atmosphere and location were great and the live music outside was a great addition. There is lots of outdoodigesting in the summer and maybe in winter too with heaters but not sure about this. We had two kinds of pizza which were both unique and excellent. Our server, Liz, was friendly and helpful and offered suggestions which were right on target. The other staff members were also pleasant. Liz checked on us frequently and always with a smile even though she was busy. I will return here for sure when back in Tahoe. I would imagine the winter scene is equally enjoyable and hope to try it in the winter season Don't miss this place for a lovely experience and great food.

Located right at the Gondola's plaza, this pizza place has a great atmosphere for grow ups, not that much for little ones, but we ordered our pizza to go, so while waiting for it, we walked around the plaza, and check at the theater movies's list.
Since I love Indian's food, I ordered the Thai Curry pizza, and it really blew my mind with their unique flavors, and excellent presentation.
About prices, it is more expensive than other pizza places but for the location, and menu, it is o.k.
