Best pizza I've had in downtown SD. Excellent selection of beer, happy hour pricing, and the service is great. Staff is friendly and passionate about the product they put out.

Finally got a chance to dine in here and woooooow, so damn impressed. First, fantastic service! Second, the Caesar salad is on point! Third, the spaghetti and clams is A+ work. Finally, if you eat here and don't order the meatballs you're punishing yourself for no reason.
