Last time I was in Berkeley my cousin and I were on the Great Western Vacation of '81. I remember walking around Berkeley and noticing a little pizza place. I was very impressed with the pizza and still remember it almost 37 years later! It's...More

Arinell's pizza has been here for quite a while. The pizza is average at best. It's NY style pizza served by hippies that looked like they haven't bathed for a while. Not the type of people I would hire if I owned a food establishment....More

This is the spot to get a quick slice of Pizza and a drink. I generally go for the NY Neopolitan Style. Mushroom is my favorite-- with extra Mushrooms. The whole pies are reasonable and delicious and good to take home.

I've twice gone here due to it's close vicinity to the downtown Berkeley Bart. I still don't know why I ever made the second trip. I knew after the first visit this was typical west coast pizza, which is to say very poor. If you've...More
