Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice pizza base and toppings. We shared a large between a family of 4 being 3 slices each. Cost about $32 for a large. No frills kind of cafe indoors, outdoor seating. Eat out of the box or on disposable plates with plastic cutlery.

by staying at Yosemite View Lodge, you do not have many choices to eat. Basically, you have two choices. So, I picked the pizza place. There was a delay in ordering as the lady did not know how to operate the cash register. Once, that...was resolved, I got my house pizza which was essentially almost all meat. I was surprised with the taste which was quite good.More

Maybe because we were hiking all day, but this was the best pizza we've had in a very long time! There was a long line which usually means it is going to be worth the wait, and it definitely was!

I was surprised to find that the pizza was as good as it was! Often when there are very few options the quality tends to be lacking as they know they have a captive audience. My son and I stayed nearby and went there for...dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The pizza was quite good, service prompt and friendly, and we were eating within 15 minutes! We were glad for the leftovers that were still good reheated the next day.More

With the Covid crisis in full bloom, my wife and I didn't want to hit the restaurant and instead opted for a takeout pizza. Ernie was the person at the counter and he was very helpful, professional, and pleasant. The pizza was wonderful and was...one of the best that I have had in a long time.More

Delicious pizza. Nice deck to sit on. A side patio wasn’t kept up and would have been nice additional seating but everything was overgrown. Okay beer selection but could be a lot better.

Since we were staying at the Yosemite View Lodge for multiple nights we ate here on our second night. The pizza was quite good and even though they seemed fairly busy we did not have to wait too long for our order. We did come...a little bit early in the evening though - since this place and the restaurant next door are the only two choices unless you want to drive for quite a way, they can both get busier as the evening wears on. The prices were also very reasonable considering there is really not any competition in this area.More

After a long day at Yosemite, we were looking for somewhere to eat besides inside the park. There is limited choices. We started to eat at the river view restaurant but it was over priced. So we went to the pizza place and was pleasantly...surprised. The pizza was really good. It compare in price to our local pizza place that is not a chain. Super deliciousMore

Delicious pizza and great value. Plenty of cheese and other toppings make it pretty scrumptious. We ordered it to go and brought it next-door to our room at the blue butterfly inn where we enjoyed it on our deck overlooking the river.

Located at the Yosemite View Lodge in El Portal, Parkside Pizza is one of two dining options at the hotel (which represent the only food service available within several miles). We dined here once during our stay. Following an active day of hiking in Yosemite,...my wife and I rewarded ourselves by ordering a veggie pizza, which we definitely enjoyed. The toppings tasted fresh, the sauce was pleasantly mild and the crust was both crisp and chewy. Moreover, the service I received was friendly and helpful. There’s no getting around the fact that Parkside Pizza and The River Restaurant and Lounge have a monopoly on the local dining scene and can charge higher-than-average prices. The River is definitely pricey for what you receive; the prices at Parkside Pizza are a little higher than the norm, but of the two eateries Parkside Pizza is definitely the more affordable way to feed a family.More

We had takeout here one evening for supper. The pizza is good but it is a bit expensive. Very convenient and it is directly on the Yosemite View Lodge property. It was relatively quick and staff was friendly. Great option when you come back from...a day in the park and don't want to deal with other options.More

Considering that we are all dealing with a pandemic, this place came in super handy after a long day inside Yosemite Park. Very busy with outside dining or takeaway. Pizza was delicious and the manager very friendly! We enjoyed it!
