Pulled into La Jolla yesterday after a beautiful, but grueling 2day 600 mile ride down the PCH from SF. Tired and hungry, we decided to walk from our LJ B&B to eat something. Stumbled on this place around 6 pm and could not have been happier. Thin crust, custom designed pizzas cooked perfectly in 700 degree wood fired oven. Great tangy marinara sauce, and ample beer and wine-by-the-glass were all reasonably priced. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Highly recommended. Considering the pricey location, I would give it 5 stars in value alone. Overall couldn't quite give excellent rating because after all it is still just pizza.

“Best Pizza in San Diego!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

New to Prospect Street restaurants is Amici's. The building is nicely appointed and the Italian food terrific. It is thin crust pizza the likes of which you rarely find in California. There is an indoor area and a very nice porch with a wall of open windows. The pizzas come in three different sizes, the smallest of which is a nice appetizer size to share. Likewise the Italian entrees can be ordered in "half" size, which was plenty. If you are looking for a reasonably priced Italian meal, this is it.

“Great for large groups, solid pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

California is not well known for its pizza, but this place is pretty good. Brick oven thin crust pizzas are their specialty. I ate the Boston pizza with eggplant. We also had a Margherita pizza and a classic pepperoni pizza at the table. All were quite good. Service was very attentive and patient with our young children. We opted to sit outside, but be forewarned that you currently cannot drink alcoholic beverages outside. Some licensing thing they're working through, which is a shame because the outdoor patio is fantastic (we even saw the sun set!). There is more semi-outdoor seating out front. This is a good option for large groups and families. We went on a Friday night and it wasn't crowded at all. The only other downside is that the bill was rather high just for a pizza outing.
