Oven fired pizzas come out fresh hot and fast. Staff is very friendly and attentive. House recipe pizzas are not run of the mill.

Good pizza at a reasonable price, wifey and I split a sausage pizza and shared a salad. A little noisy but that was due to how busy they are. Clearly a popular spot for locals in the area. We sat by the kitchen and the pizza makers were working feverishly to get those pies out to the customers. We will... More

I enjoyed my lunch here. Great pizza and friendly service, and I will botch the name, but I think it was Kirsten. I loved the crispy pepperoni with basil in it. I'll be back.

This was my first visit to a Pitfire Pizza. I had the Fired-Grilled Eggplant Pizza that was featured on their menu board. It was pretty good, though the olives made it saltier than I'd have liked. It was about 10" in size and was enough for me. I also had their Hibiscus Iced Tea, which was also pretty good. Yes,... More

These guys love to sell small overpriced pizza. Their minds will explode if you order a large pizza.

This córner place located two blocks from the beach has a nice vive. The artisan pizza is delicious and you have options to do your own. Customer service is excellent. We'll come back.

We had 4 margherita take away. The pizza was good a bit small but with a great taste. Very similar to the one we have in Italy only the mozzarella topping was a bit different. Very friendly staff I had to wait 15 min because the place was packed and they kept asking me if I wanted something to drink... More

We were looking for a place to have an early dinner in Manhattan Beach when my son and I stumbled on Pitfire. Hungry after a long day, we ambled in a little after 4 p.m. - just in time for happy hour! The clerk was extremely friendly and helpful, pointing out all of the happy hour specials, recommending particular pizzas... More
