While we missed eating here on our most recent visit to North County, this is definitely my go-to place for pizza. Dining in by the aquarium is nice, but taking your food to go and heading to Moonlight Beach is just as great. I wish they had pizza like this in L.A.

If you have children who do not eat tasty food, this is the place for you. Perfect atmosphere for kids - they can run around, convenient to downtown Encinitas and Moonlight beach.
As an adult, you probably won't care for the food. Pizza sauce is sweet - kids like that. Pasta dishes are very bland - kids like that.
Good selection of tap beer - parents like that.
The fettuccine alfredo had no flavor whatsoever, even salt & pepper did not help.
The penne with vodka sauce and prosciutto was a little better, but you had to search for the prosciutto.
The caesar salad - way overdressed with a bland dressing on old lettuce.
The beer was good. The service was very good.

Leucadia Pizzeria is a San Diego tradition, and I formerly used them to cater pizza for lunches at a science research business where I was a director. Nice location close to Moonlight beach if you want to walk. Italian Food is Americanized and the pizza is good, probably the number 2 or 3 rated in Encinitas, but not exceptional. Ministrone soup is good too. The parking lot is always crowded and in the last few years full of aggressive nasty people who seem to like to visit Encinitas. We've given up on eating here if we have to park. They do deliver and delivered pizza is great for parties.

We have been here several times when in Encinitas. Pizza is great and lots of choices. Noisy, family atmosphere. Salads and meals are big enough to share. Outside heated patio fun to sit out. Desserts are amazing! Great
Restuarant!

Their pizza is just fine and the fact that they deliver is a big bonus. But why, just why, can't it be as good as pizza in New York?
