Joe's Pizza ( 1 Jun)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
Over a recent trip to NYC, I had one main goal in mind - hit up a classic, authentic NY slice shop. This was just that - delicious, cheap, and quick. Had a cheese and a pepperoni slice - super thin with just the right amount of sauce and cheese. Apparently this place is pretty famous, and with good reason. Worth an excursion to the West Village if you're in the city.
Grimaldi's ( 1 Jun)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
Finally tried this legendary place...and it did not disappoint. Managed to get a table after a mere 15-20 minute wait (nothing compared to stories I've heard). Ordered a cheese and a sausage. Both were great - thin yet substantial crust, nice spice to the sauce, and fresh mozzarella. Ate way more than I should was too good. Worth the effort if you are in NYC!

Cool Italian restaurant serving neapolitan pizzas in Midtown Manhattan. The margherita with sausage was really fn good, perfect dough and sauce. Just got better with each bite. Also tried the Montanara Startia, which featured lightly fried dough that is finished in the oven. Very unique, pillowy crust with tasty smoked buffalo mozzarella and also a great sauce. Would recommend to anyone staying in NYC and would definitely return!
Pachino Pizzeria (19 Apr)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
A pretty classic margherita here. Awesome sweet & spicy sauce, and really good crust that is soft in the center and crispy on the outside. Very solid.
Tamalpie Pizza ( 6 Jan)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Very good Neopolitan pizza. Had the Hoo-Koo-E-Koo, their signature Margherita - named after a hiking trail on nearby Mount Tamalpais (as are all of their pies). Pleasantly surprised by the firmness of the crust - not too soggy as many of the newer "fancy" Neopolitan pizza places can be. Great crust, loved the somewhat spicy sauce, and good cheese distribution. We had about 4 pizzas at our table, and the crowd seemed to enjoy them all. Would definitely return!
Marcello's Pizza ( 6 Nov)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
The sauce. It's all about the sauce. Ordered for delivery, very good thin crust pizza. The sweet & spicy sauce stood out here. Also loved the soft breadstick like crust - which was great for dipping in the extra sauce provided by the side of meatballs which were also excellent. Will order again! PS: this reminded me of East Coast beach boardwalk style slices. *** Review update (11/5/12) *** I'm bumping this one up to 5 stars. I've ordered their large cheese several times now and I think it's easily the best delivery option in SF. It's that good.
Bistro Aix ( 3 Nov)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Cracker Crust Pizza with Tomato, Mozzarella, Fontina and Parmesan. Excellent very thin (obviously) pizza. Loved how the crust stayed crisp and kept it's shape. Just the right amount of cheese and sauce. Perfect portion size for one. I think i went in with extremely high expectations which is why I went with 4 rather than 5 stars. I'll definitely be getting this again, you can't go wrong.

I think I may have found my new go-to personal frozen pizza - The California Pizza Kitchen BBQ Chicken Pizza. Nice and thin with a crispy dry crust. The chicken tasted better than your typical frozen pizza toppings. Pretty small portion, but for about $3.75, this is a good staple. Will stock up on these!

Came here with a big group for a birthday party. Sampled a few pizzas, but I'll comment on the best one I tried - The Manilla Special (Linguica Sausage, Mozzarella Cheese and Tomato Sauce). Excellent thin and crispy crust. Great sauce and the right amount of cheese. Thinly sliced sausage, almost resembling pepperoni. There were some issues with the other pies I tried (the garlic overpowered the margherita, which was also sort of soggy), but this one was perfection.
Auburn Ale House (21 Mar)
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
Cool brewery in downtown Auburn. First off this place has excellent beer, which is obviously the main attraction. Tried the BBQ chicken pizza. Sadly, the pizza did not measure up to the beer. Very bland crust with little character. The chicken was good, but the sauce and cheese were concentrated to the middle of the pie creating poor distribution. I'd definitely be down to go back here, but next time I'll try a sandwich.
