“Gluten-Free Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

For anyone frustrated trying to find decent gluten-free food, Pizza Nova's gluten-free pizza is a slice of heaven. Though gluten-free menu options are becoming more available, many are in the testing stages trying to get it right. Pizza Nova should be the standard to compare to.

“Salads are Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

Ladies & gentlemen love good salads, so Pizza Nova is an excellent choice with a variety of salads to choose from. Fresh ingredients, large portions, & the fresh rolls with butter topping is what keeps me going back for more. Conveniently located off the freeway in a shopping center with outdoor dining is another plus.

“Good variety of freshly prepared food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Although the name doesn't imply it, this casual eatery in a shopping center serves up fresh and delicious salads, pastas, pizza and sandwiches. Reasonably priced, and large fresh portions make it a great place for lunch or a casual dinner. There is an open kitchen, and it tends to be a bit noisy when crowded, there is outdoor seating, with heaters for those wanting less noise.

“Worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

This is the place that broke our diet. But just for the day. We were on our way to the grocery store for our usual lettuce and asparagus......but we were hungry and had to pass the aroma of Pizza Nova. It was beyond our ability to resist and we both looked at each other and said...."we'll start again tomorrow". This was our first visit and we had heard good things. But most pizza places are pretty similar. They brought out little garlic rolls....don't you love places that feed you as soon as you sit down? We ordered "the works without anchovies" and this is the truth. We both took our first bite.....looked at each other with eyes wide....and said "Oh My God!". With each bite, we kept saying this was the best pizza we'd had in years. Everything from the crust to the sauce to the generous toppings......if you're gonna break your diet, you want it to be worthwhile. And this place will be a diet-breaker for us I'm sure - - again and again.
