The food is always delicious & fresh. I absolutely love their white bean minestrone & beet salad. I recommend to go light on the dressing. Their pizzas are beautifully cooked to perfection in wood burning ovens- which make the difference for me. I love the Portobello with Black Truffle Oil (sans the pancetta) & mozzarella cheese. Simple flavors that stand... More

A restaurant located just off I-5, tucked into a small shopping plaza, this is a great place place for pizza and salads. There were 6 in our party including a vegan and a gluten intolerant teen. Everyone had pizzas that fit their tastes/needs. All were very good and the prices were average. The Caesar salad was also very good. We... More

8 of us Aussies found this great place for a great pizza. I had a 14" pizza which i shared with my wife. We chose the Works pizza which was delicious. The waitress was very kind too. I would recommend one of the craft beers on offer. I had the Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.

Both the pizza and the service were excellent. We chose a table inside so we could watch the pizza being made. Our server was very friendly, and since we were on the cusp of "Happy Hour" she offered to get our order in quickly so we could get the discount (we didn't even know there was a happy hour). All...

This is the place to go if you want a good pizza cooked in a brick oven. Other Italian dishes are available if you don't want one of their delicious pizzas. The wine menu complements all their selections. The atmosphere changes from outdoor seating (covered and heaters available) to the cozy inside.This is a neighborhood location in Solana Beach next...

We were in a hurry to go to the play at the North Coast rep and Pizza Nova is in the same shopping center. We were pleasantly surprised to find an indoor-outdoor atmosphere, a cheerful, helpful, attentive waitress, and very good food easily split between the two of us. The meatballs were delicious, smothered with garlicy red sauce, the salad... More

We had about 1 hour before attending a theater nearby. Our order was taken promptly, the pizza was very good and the server was attentive. When we left virtually every staff member spoke ti us and wished us a good evening.

I stopped in for dinner while on a business trip to San Diego. It’s a nice place, friendly staff. I was seated right away. I asked about their beer offerings, and the hostess seemed to struggle over what they had. I had asked for a red or brown ale and was told they didn’t have any at this time. She... More

Don't be judged by the fact it is next to a Sporting Goods Store. Just go! The Garlic Rosemary rolls, arrive first then you are tempted to taste and then order. The portion sizes are huge and the salads can easily be split. Or take home leftovers! The service is very attentive and the food is consistently good. Try to... More
