I love love their pepperoni pizza. I've been to many pizza restaurants, but every time we get a chance to travel to San Jose, we must stop here. The chunky spicy pepperoni is something no one else offers. The price is good and staff is friendly. You always feel welcomed there.

Ordered over the phone for carry out which worked fine. The pepperoni is chunky and very spicy. I took most of mine off cuz it was too much. Toppings are under the cheese. Our plain cheese pizza was yummy though! Garlic bread wasn't good. Dry and not tasty. Would probably not eat here again. There are better pizza places!

Tradition since 1950, fun and tasty pizza joint with bar. Rustic atmosphere, you order pizza in back. Pizza loaded and square cut. Known for the "Confusion" which is their version of a combo. You can eat well for a fair price, plenty of parking too.

Been going here since 1980's before they moved to this location. It's consistently GREAT. Not your "normal" average pizza - So much better.

Great place for my husbands coworkers and spouses to meet before we catch a San Jose Giants game. We are usually happy with our pizza. Also very happy that they have a full bar.

Disgusting. Every year I go to my nephew’s b-day at this place. He loves it. My sister (his mom) loves it. Idk why. When you walk into the establishment, it is like you walked into the past. It looks and feels like an old smelly sticky saloon. There is a bar and the tables and seats are wood, so that... More

They have been in business for 65 years. The restaurant has it's own charm; the inside is nothing to write about, but the pizza; well that is an entirely different story. The beer on tap is cold and flows with a steady business from regular customers. If you are looking for high quality ingredients and a consistent pie, this place... More

Having grown-up and went to local schools and the university, House of Pizza is a beloved downtown pizza joint. The place is located near the San Jose convention center and a freeway overpass. Although the location is not ideal,you go there for the unique very cheesy pie. The pizzas come in a variety of toppings from veggie to meat centric.... More
