We are super thrilled to announce that we won “Best Pizza” in the 2018 East Bay Express Reader’s Poll! There are so many amazing pizza and non-pizza restaurants (that’s how we classify them, anyway) in the East Bay. We are truly humbled to win this award!


We are also over-the-moon to share that, for the second year in a row on Trip Advisor, we are rated the number one restaurant in Oakland! Wow-ee!!!!!! This is incredible and we are super proud of our amazing and talented Oakland crew (some of whom have been making pizzas since the 1980s!).


We are super excited to announce that we won Reader’s Choice BEST PIZZA in Oakland Magazine’s Best of Oakland and the East Bay edition. This is a huge honor!
