Came here after a ball game and we were really impressed. It's a nice pizza place with a separate bar area for adults. The pizza has great sauce and there are some unique pies available. I highly recommend it.

was dragged there by the wife who felt like pizza for lunch and was not too keen on eating unhealthy. but was in for a big surprise. pizza was out of this world, thin base, crispy perfectly cooked. little advice if you are a small eater a small pizza is just enough for two and if you are hungry just order a large one.

We went for lunch during a weekday. Pizza was exceptionally good. A real stand out. It is made to order. You can pick from a wide range of toppings. Arrived at table fairly quickly. Service was great. We were in and out within 45 minutes. Great ambiance.

Definitely a cool “loft” style! The pizza was fine – I probably wouldn’t make a special trip but the ambiance was cool!

Basic pizza was down the street from our hotel in the Gaslamp quarter. We decided to give it a try after reading some good reviews on Tripadvisor. Despite being a Saturday night, we got a table almost immediately. The place was quite busy on the bar side, but the sit-down side was slightly less busy.

The pizza was some of the best pizza I have ever had! It's nice that you can customize whatever toppings you want. The portions were fairly large, although the crust is quite thin so it is a bit deceiving. Two of us finished a small pizza and we were just full enough. Luckily, that meant we could go to a dessert place after. The servers were very attentive and answered all of our questions.

Our pizza had sausage, mushrooms and onions on it with the marinara base. I don't know what made it taste so good, but it was seriously amazing. Highly recommend trying this place if you're in San Diego!
