Love this place. Great ambiance and excellent food. Casual and cozy restaurant that is fit for any occasion. I had the Bolognese and my wife had the pizza. Loved them both. You can't go wrong with this place, food, atmosphere and service. Fantastic.

This used to be one of my favorite San Luis Obispo restaurants. I wrote a review a couple of years ago and gave exceptions, ratings. Not sure what has happened. We recently dined at Upper Crust to celebrate our 50th anniversary. What a disaster-- the...More

Lunch with a good friend at a place we hadn't been to before but had heard good things. Upper Crust was a hit with us. Service was good as well as the food -- will go back.

We came in short before closing time with 3 kids and felt welcome from the first moment. The food and service was excellent, and was served in short time - a good thing when traveling with kids :-). Recommend the eggplant dish, it's delicious
