7 Best Pizza Places in San Diego

San Diego is well known for its Mexican food and Micro Brews. Well, guess what? we’ve also got some outstanding Pizza joints. There are so many, so we’ll just start with our 7 Best Pizza Places in San Diego. So grab a slice of life, fold and insert into your tummy, while washing down with a nice brew.

Pizza Port Breweries

Pizza Port has long been one of our favorites for many reasons. First, there’s the pizza. We love us some “Meet Extreme Meat” pizza. This thin-crusted pizza should be ordered with their signature wholegrain beer crust. Packed with Canadian bacon, pepperoni, meatballs, salami, and sausage this pizza absolutely rocks! Their microbrews are well known here in San Diego and are for sale retail in many local liquor stores and grocery marts. A couple of brews we enjoy. Chronic ale, a delicious amber ale, and Fife Dog IPA. Bottoms up!

We waited for over 30 minutes for two slices of cheese pizza (just OK) and a salad. Employees were friendly and... definitely hustling to get orders out. We just weren’t wowed by the taste of pizza (personal preference) and the long wait for such a simple order, therefore, unlikely we will return. Definitely seems popular though as there was a long line for both food and alcohol in the middle of the day. Seating is mainly picnic tables. Some electronic games. Good place to go for larger groups and families. Nice location, more suburban/shopping center in the Bressi Ranch area.read more

Plenty of space on the main floor, upstairs, and outside. Prices are a bit steep and the food (pizza) is OK, not... fantastic. Seating is mainly picnic tables. Some electronic games. Good place to go for larger groups. Nice location, more suburban/shopping center-like than the downtown Carlsbad location.read more

Not a fan of this North County version. Seriously the signs handwritten for reading the beer menu are hardly legible... due to the not subtle artistic Flair with bad contrasting colors. Not much in the way of entertainment for the little ones. The upstairs is drab like their pizzas. An upgrade of one or two of these things would help them seriously with the quantity of quality restaurants and sit-downs surrounding this placeread more

This is the best pizza in San Diego County.On that note, Service can be slow(they get super busy at times) and not... accurate about phone orders.Last 2 times my pizza had onions on it(using cheese from the pit(excess cheese captured while making )), and few of the toppings I did order(mushrooms looked like small torn pieces). I understand supply and delivery issues gong on (2021),but no apology, substitution, or refund offered. I don't know how many more mistakes will drive down my frequency or away for good."A" for quality"C" for effort(down from A then B-)read more

Love coming here! Always a team stop for my son’s hockey team when we are playing in Carlsbad. The picnic bench seating... and handful of arcade games makes a fun time for the kids. The selection of craft beers makes it a fun time for the adults and everyone loves the pizza and wings. Pizza is always delicious and I recommend the Eggs and Bacon with Coconut Porter if you like dark brews.read more

Crazy on a Friday night, especially after a soccer tournament. Plenty of seating inside and out. We had to wait almost... 90 minutes for our complete order of a salad, mac and cheese bites, pizza pretzel, and a large BBQ chicken pizza. What made it worthwhile was the company we were with and that made the time wait a little more bearable. Food and ambiance were good.read more

Honestly the best time to come here is when its not busy because when it is, there are kids all over the place. The... upper floor is often empty and a great place to chill. The lunch special is the best deal here, only six dollars for 2 slices of pizza and a soda cup before 3. pinballs a bit overpriced, a few more than 2 machines would be nice.read more

Easily one of my favorite pizza and pint spots in San Diego. The food here is absolutely delicious and the beer list is... second-to-none. There is plentiful seating with two levels of indoor seating, a permanent outdoor patio, and a temporary (and hopefully soon-to-be permanent?) covered outdoor seating area in the parking lot. If you don't mind salty, I definitely recommend the "Carlsbad" pizza. They also have a nice gluten-free crust for those that need it!read more

Dirty patio, decent warm beer, horrible customer service, could not hear names being called, food sat for 10 minutes... and was cold when finally went to look to see if it was ready, we informed the employee pickup/announcer that the loudspeaker outside was not working and could not understand names being called over the blaring music, they replied, " ya we know and don't care."OK, got it. Party on.Too bad we don't care & will never return to any location or purchase products...and we are not on vacation. Maybe think about your customers whom you serve and learn what hospitality really is. There are many better places to eat, drink, and spend your money.read more

Pizzeria Luigi

Luigi Agostini, the owner of Pizzeria Luigi, lived in Varese, Italy just north of Milano.  He stayed in Italy until the age of 23. In search of adventure, Luigi traveled from San Francisco to Hawaii and Los Angeles. He eventually settled in San Diego before opening his very first pizzeria in Poway, California in 2002.

At the time, Luigi was a resident of Golden Hill, commuting daily to his suburban pizzeria. After a  visit from Guy Fieri and Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins & Dives in the Fall of 2008, Pizzeria Luigi’s business skyrocketed & pizza enthusiasts traveled from near and far for a slice of his signature pizzas. Trust us and definitely try the Mona Lisa pie, Pepperoni, Sausage, Green Peppers, Mushroom, Red Onion, Black Olive *As seen on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

I am no pizza connoisseur, let's get this out of the way. I like my restaurants to have tasty food, chill staff and... nice location, in that order. This restaurant fulfills my requirements nicely, and it seems to be a local favorite, and when you see firemen and peace officers stop by to pick up a quick grub, you know their stuff is good. Sadly I could only have 2 slices 'cause they're freaking huge!So, my recommendation is to come with an empty stomach, as all their pizza varieties (which they sell by slice too) look delicious.read more

A hidden gem!!! This pizza is absolutely delicious!!!!! It's served very hot and the ingredients don't taste processed.... The slices are big and the crust tastes amazing! You can buy individual slices or your own personal pizza. If you want your own personal pizza, they only offer large, but it is more like an extra large.You definitely get your money's worth. The staff are very friendly, professional and the service is impeccable!!! You can dine indoor or outdoor. You must try this hidden gem. You won't be disappointed!read more

So, I was really excited to come try this place and it looks like such a great area! When we went in and looked around,... inside the glass casing where you see the pieces by the slice, you could definitely see flies in there. There were also these rolls that we ordered and there were a bunch piled up and sitting uncovered on the top of the casing. There were flies on them as well. I thought maybe those were just for people to see and that there were obviously fresh stuff in the back.I was so happy we ordered a full pizza that they had to cook fresh because I saw them grab slices where the flies were and just put them in the oven to warm up. They also grabbed the rolls that had flies on them and put them in the oven to warm up as well. We…could not eat them. It was so unappetizing.The pizza was pretty good but after everything, I’m not sure we could comfortably enjoy everything :/read more

I love Luigi's pizza. But I really wish the owner had more pride of ownership in his restaurants. I have been to all... of his locations in town. He lacks a lot of the details. Today, I am at the "ORIGINAL" Golden Hill location. The bathrooms here are a mess. Are long due for a remodel. One of the bathrooms had a roll of toilet paper on top of the paper towel dispenser. Totally unacceptable. They just opened too so I know it was an employee who did it. Found a fruit fly come out of the soda machine which tells me it needs to be cleaned and their soda machine is lacking co2. The owner is definitely not engaged in his restaurants so if he doesn't care. Why should the employees? That is the only thing that frustrates me about Luigi's. I know they are better than that. They have a great product but lack the details in execution of cleanliness and maintenance.read more

They only sell 18" pizzas (from what I could tell) that come with 8 giant slices. The Service was pretty good overall... and our pizzas were ready within 20 minutes. My only issues were that the pizzas were a bit too greasy for me personally and it seemed to make the pizza a bit soggy. Overall still a good pizzaread more

Best. Pizza. In. San. Diego. If you're a fan of New York style big slices, this is your place. Even if you're a Bronx... Pizza fan. My lady is from NYC and this holds up to her standards as well. Nice creations but classics like a slice of cheese or spinach ricotta (no sauce) are wonderful too. Nice beer on tap selection. Great wings as well. Sriracha IPA are the best. Pizza rolls and calzones are awesome. I clearly love this place. Long enough review. Go buy some Luigi'sread more

Delicious classic NY style thin-crust pie. Perfect crust:cheese:sauce ratio. Whole pie prices are great ($17 cheese,... $19 margherita). One pie ends up being good for 4-5 meals (for an average person). Called ahead at 11:38 AM and the pie was ready when I got there at 11:55 (18 min). There are a few diagonal (back-up-only) street parking spots in front. Ended up becoming a neighborhood favorite for us.read more

Filippi’s Pizza Grotto

Vincent DePhilippis and Madeleine Manfredi from Nimes France met in New York NY, married in 1925, then settled in Westchester Pennsylvania. They moved to San Diego in 1947 where they opened an Italian market named Cash & Carry Italian foods on India Street in San Diego. 1950 was the beginning of what has become a very successful line of family restaurants that are today know as Filippi’s Pizza Grottos that are owned and operated by original family members of the founders.

I’m very confused by the positive reviews of this place. We thought it would be cute and unique given the marketplace... entrance. The ambiance is like a restaurant in a theme park, and equally as overpriced. The portions were disgustingly large, and the food was flavorless. In fact we both agreed that the spaghetti tasted like what we were served in the cafeteria of our elementary school. Food was coming out of the kitchen too fast, as if the noodles were already cooked and sitting there ready to have sauce slopped over them. The table next to us was sent their pizza back, complaining about how tasteless it was and that there was way too much cheese. It did not look appetizing. I will say, our garlic bread and cesar salad were the best thing we ate but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make those two staples decent. If you are a foodie, have ever been to Italy, and/or are looking for quality over quantity, skip this place and try one of the many other restaurants in the little Italy neighborhood. If an actual Italian person visited this place…. I cannot imagine the wrath and disgrace.read more

Excellent food, service and wine. We had Sabrina as our server and she was awesome. We sat in the outside patio and... it was fun to people watch everyone going by on the sidewalk. We came here Sunday around 3pm and it was starting to fill up but never got over crowded. We had the meat filled ravioli with meatballs and sausage. Also the cheese ravioli with meat sauce. One of us who doesn’t even absolutely love meat still loved the meat ravioli very delicious. They also served bread rolls on the house and when we asked for more we were able to get them. We had the house Rośe, recommended and very good. All in all an excellent meal and dining experience. Outside was nice as a family next to us had two small children and they were able to let their kids walk around a little bit while waiting for their food which also was a nice thing for families with antsy kids. We will be back.read more

We came back here to try the pizza this time, we got the special and they were able customize one side and not include... some of the toppings my wife doesn’t like. The pizza was great and the size was perfect for two.On the other hand, they have outdoor sitting and a sign that says see the hostess for a table. But we couldn’t find the hostess outside of the restaurant and other clients were as confused as us. The waiters were passing by in front of us, but completely ignored everyone waiting in front of the restaurant instead of directing us to the hostess. After asking inside we walked a bit further to what seemed to us a different restaurant and found her.——-This was one of our favorite restaurants in the area good price and value.The portions were quite large and we liked the lasagna, I believe they make them in house.There is a small market you pass through to go into the restaurant that sells imported goodies.read more

Lefty’s Chicago Pizzeria

The idea for Lefty’s came from the over-abundance of mom and pop shops where the owners grew up in Chicago. The ease of ordering a deep dish pie or grabbing a dog, a bag of fries, a beef sandwich, and ALL of the happy feelings that came along with comfort foods. Fortunately, they soon tired of missing those mouth-watering and comforting flavors of Chicago.  They began spending hours in their little California kitchens, creating recipes that they force-fed their friends, trying to re-create those pies haunting their taste buds.

They serve local microbrews from Ballast Point, Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Stone Brewing Co, Great Divide Brewing Co., Ten Barrel Brewing, AleSmith Brewing Co., and Thunderhawk Alements.

Mustard, tomato, peppers, dill pickle, celery seed and a beef dog with a perfect “snap”. Served with golden brown fries that ALMOST steal the show. Highly recommended.read more

Chicago deep dish pizza was so good! Just what we were hoping for. Service was good, but confusing. We weren't sure... what to do, seat ourselves, or wait to be seated. We ended up checking in for our called-in order and then seated ourselves. Staff was helpful and brought everything out and kept checking on us. Fried mushrooms were heavy on the batter with a big crunch if that's what you like. House salad was super cold and fresh. The deep dish pizza is very filling. Unless you have a huge appetite, one slice might be enough. Mangia!read more

Placed an order, 2 hours later they hadn't even started it yet and refused to give an estimate on time. Very rude, poor... customer service. Has a lot of good reviews so hopefully this was a fluke, but there's too many other places to eat at to deal with unprofessional service like thatread more

I like the pizza and if I based my review in that they would be a 5 stars. The last two times I have had horrible... customer service experience. I thought the first time was a fluke but after the second time I am not so sure. I have updated the rating to reflect this. With so many other pizza places around I will be going elsewhere.read more

While visiting PB, and having the opportunity to try the gluten free pizza at Hoboken. We order sausage, spinach, and... mushrooms. This gluten free pizza is the best that I have tried. Even my non gluten free family enjoyed the texture and flavor and they were comparing it to regular thin crust pizza. We all loved it. Amazing flavor, everything married together in perfect harmony.read more

The best thin crust in the area. The real deal. Crust is always perfect. Obsessed with the Mr. Pesto Pizza. A proper... salad. Cool peeps. Draft Beer. Order a whole pizza or grab pizza by the slice. These guys are ALWAYS working hard. Highly recommended. I only go here or Zia in Normal Heights.read more

Beautiful day in the city. Parking was awful! Very relaxing atmosphere and a nice menu. Food was good, not great, but... it was just nice sitting outside looking at the water, so I would definitely come back. My Arnold Palmer was quite refreshing, the caesar salad with salmon was drenched in creamy dressing. I usually ask for it on the side, so that's on me. The rosemary fries were delicious! Very clean bathrooms and hand sanitizer everywhere.read more

My buddies and I had a great time eating here. Their food is innovative and delicious. A salad and a piece of... mozzarella were on the menu. It's been delicious! The cost is reasonable. They also serve fresh salads, spaghetti, and a variety of sandwiches. I'll eat their baguette the next time I come here.read more

Place is open until 2, which is nice for someone looking for a late night pizza run like Mt group was. The music is... loud, which I didn't mind, but there were a few songs that had curse words, so if you are bring children later in the evening be prepared. The staff was nice. The vibe was mellow and friendly. I definitely recommend.read more

Being from out of town we picked this place randomly and didn't know what to expect. What a great choice! The staff is... so friendly and goes above and beyond. Between the 7 of us we had baked pastas, hot subs, meatballs and calzones. Everything was steaming hot and delicious! Beware the portions are huge. The fresh baked cinnamon donuts were an added bonus that everyone loved. We will definitely be back!!!read more

Weirder than you’re thinking. Perfect place for all occasions. NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB packages on 8 hi-def screens. Space toys, aliens, black lights, lasers, and video games for the kids. Nice beer selection and award-winning pizza.

Opened in 1977 by brothers Steve and Dave Mizell. With over 75 years of restaurant experience between them, they learned their pizza skills from a prominent Chicago pizza family. Currently, they have two locations Escondido, and Oceanside. “We do what it takes to give every single customer the best pizza possible”.

Placed an order online and paid online at 5 pm. Arranged for a 6:15 pick-up. I place orders online so I don't have to... wait in line. I go to pick up my order at 6:15 and I'm told I have to get in line which is about a mile long. About 15 minutes later I get my food. I will never go back there again.read more

Should be called killer wings from mars. Best wings ive had in years. Pizza though was way under cooked, sauce was very... metallic for pizza sauce and overall just not good pizza in my opinion. Go there for the arcade and wings and leave happy. Cool atmosphere.read more

Local favorite. Best wings I think. I like the Cluck Roger's chicken pizza. Great atmosphere. But line can be a long... wait. One thing that I dislike is the menu is almost unreadable do to dark lettering. I think as a marketing standpoint it needs to be brighter so everything can be read. I would order more items if I could read it. It would be 5 stars if menu board was refurbished. But the best pizza. Video games and a pinball machine. Plenty of seating. Bring the whole family.read more

Hi there,I went to pick up my pizza and was told 4 minutes until it was ready. Easy no big deal. So I went to sit at... the bar at the closest stool to the cashier and waited patiently. 30 minutes go by and during those 30 minutes the employee working the front walks by me several times without saying anything. If she forgot about me, she didn't even offer me a beer as if I was a new customer. So finally after seeing another customer walk in and get their pizza quickly I ask about mine. At that point I get a quick "Sorry" and now have my pizza.You need to either find a new front desk employee or work it yourself to ensure that your customers aren't being forgotten for 30 minutes. I'm a pretty chill dude but this was beyond frustrating.read more

I always get their specialty Mars pizza. It’s a little pricey but it’s totally worth it. Their pizza is enormous so you... can have a couple days of leftovers. Try the personal pizza for only $11 and it will satisfy you. Also, they have an awesome selection of craft beers on tap. The weekly chicken wing special is a great deal!read more

Bronx Pizza

Many locals and visitors have proclaimed Bronx Pizza as the Best Pizza place in San Diego! Bronx Pizza opened in 1997 and continues to amaze with single slices of pie or the whole pie, and the calzones, oh my. When you arrive at Bronx Pizza it’s easy to imagine you’ve been transported back to the Bronx. The theme is truly New York Bronx and half of the staff sounds like they’re from the Bronx. The pizza is made Neapolitan style, thin-crusted and baked well done, crispy enough to fold in half and enjoy as it should be. They offer up to 18 different kinds of sliced pies for your dining pleasure. You can also have them bake a whole pie for you to dine in, or they’ll box you one to take home.

My friend and I had a slice 🍕 and a soda, came out to $8.50 I think, (not bad for a light lunch). He had Pepperoni and... I had Tomato Basil. Both slices were fresh, perfectly thin golden crust and sauced appropriately. Definitely in my top 5 slices San Diego.read more

We tried one of everything. It was some of the best, if not the best pizza we have had. The pesto was delicious but not... too overpowering. The Whitestone had a bunch of different cheeses including feta. Their pepperoni and sausage is great quality and blends well with the flavors. Every slice did not disappoint. There was option to order a whole pie or pay by slice. Everything was fairly priced and my wife and I loved every bit of it.read more

After visiting a few times I can say this is decent to average pizza. I will say the crust is toasted very well. But... the sauce and the cheese are not the most flavorful. Customer service is impeccable . The employees are excellent. They work hard. The price point is fine. 3$ a slice . Anything above that I wouldn’t return. CASH ONLY . So be prepared. Will return. It’s possible I may like them more after ordering a full pie.read more
