Whether you'll like this place or not is completely dependent on whether you like the traditional pizza or you like to play around with them.

I am of the first kind!

The USP of this place is pizza with all sorts of ingredients from pineapple to chipotle sauce.

But while the focus is on variety of ingredients there is none on quality of baking and other finer details.

The crust of my pizza was undercooked and there was nothing great about it.

However the staff was very friendly and attentive.

Overall a pricey pizza joint with not much on offer.

Familiar with California Pizza Kitchen. However, there is not one in our city in which we live.While out of town in Schaumburg we decided to take a break and have a late lunch. Very clean, pleasant atmosphere with steady flow of customer traffic but no waiting time to be seated. Music a little loud but seems to be the norm now. Maybe I am turning into my parents sooner than I had hoped. :) Two of us split a (half size) caramelized peach salad and a small hand tossed BBQ chicken pizza.We had pizza left over. Like usual you cannot be disappointed at the food at California Pizza Kitchen. In this review I would like to take time to make special note in regards to our outstanding waiter Sergio. The service that Sergio provided was above and beyond the best service I have experienced in a long time. I wish I could appropriately put into words how efficent, aware of the needs of his customers/tables, pleasant, politeness, etc. We left this day with a great first impression and hope that anyone else that tries this California Pizza Kitchen has the same experience. Ask for Sergio's section.

I ventured into California Pizza by chance. After looking at the menu, I almost walked out. Chicken pizza? A white sauce pizza with veggies? Oh well, what have I got to lose other than $10 and 30 minutes. To my amazement, it was pretty good. Far better than most of the chain pizza joints, but not as good as my old New York style pizzas that I grew up on.

Food is typical CPK, but the service is usually very good. I eat alone and the servers are pretty good at getting me my food quickly. This is in a good location and easy to get to.
