OK. I love pizza and will even eat frozen when I'm really desperate. It's not that District's pizza is not good, it's like the size of the mini frozens at Trader Joes. The price is ok $10, but then you think you're going to share the pizza with whoever you happen to be drinking wine with, and you realize that you're going to have to order 2 or 4 and what's the point?
It is not deserving of 5 stars like the previous reviewer awarded them. But it's a solid 3.5 or 4. Abbey's is a chain, but if you have ever lived in Oregon you have become accustomed to count on their Abbey's Special, and Hawaiian special for birthdays and other such occasions. Just last week when I hooked up with a local, I asked him what his favorite pizza is and he said Abbey's and sited their pepperoni as a godsend, but that's not all he thought was heavenly ;)
Top two in San Francisco. They have a great salad/slice special for lunch that is good value for dollar. Also I hear they have an all you can eat buffet dinner on Monday nights or something that is supposed to be unlimited all you can eat delicious pizza. Oh their meatballs are delicious too. This is just a solid joint, no frills just pizza that you can count on.
This place is great for thin crust. dough is fresh, ingredients are fresh and interesting, toppings are light but that is not because they are cheaping out, that is their style. This place goes OFF for soccer games too since the owner/operators are actually Italian. I love ths place.
I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about. Dino's is the top pizza joint in the city. The crust is awesome and hand tossed, the sauce is better it's Dino's MaMa's recipe, so have some RESECT! Also, I always ask for extra sauce, extra cheese, and on my diet days, I just ask for extra sauce. The service is second to none, if you are a regular, Dino himself will fill up a pitcher of beer on the house for you. For garlic lovers, they will add garlic at no charge, personally I pass because I'm hot and someone will most likely want to kiss me, it's a sacrifice I make. As far as delivery goes, usually takes about 45 minutes, but you can ask for a 2 litre of RC cola or Diet RC at no additional charge. Dinos is the best pizza in SF, but if you need other reasons to eat here, there are plenty.
I was told my some locals that BayFront pizza is the best in Newport. Although I love Abbey's for consistency and thin crust, I found BayFront Pizza to be that more hand tossed, homemade sauce, and specialty pizza and in no way generic. I asked for extra sauce and next time I will ask for extra-extra sauce. The crust was soft and delicious. The pizzas were huge. They have two types of italian sausage, mild and spicy, I went for mild and it was great. I also ordered a Canadian Bacon, I will not lie, it was a little light on the meat, they could have doubled the meat and it would have been about right. Lastly they have these little appetizer garlic roll things that are really good and good value 12 for $4, well worth the money!!
