I took my college son to dinner for Pizza, his favorite food on Mom's budget. This was really good and different. It was spinach, mushrooms, and cheese. My son added some sausage on his side of the pizza. A little pricey but really good.

We always enjoy the pizza at Blue Moon. Love the roasted bell peppers they make for their pizza toppings. Great downtown location, easy parking.

Amazing pizza with pesto and BBQ sauce and chicken, also try their garlic knots that are out of this world. One of my faves in Reno. Make sure to get ranch and red sauce for your knots!

I have had lunch here several times lately, and the food was consistently good. It seems to be a one man operation, so service is a bit slow, but the food has been worth the wait. Their personal sized pizzas are perfect for lunch or dinner-not too big, but not too small either. The Big Apple pizza is my favorite... More

We used to order Blue Moon's pizza regularly. While the pizza is still good, it isn't as good as it was in the past. The salad was excellent.

We have been going to Blue Moon for 20 years and have yet to find a better pizza in Reno. In fact we have not found as a good a pizza in our various travels in the US.

Across the street from the Nevada Museum of Art (well worth the visit!) we had lunch of a salad and a slice. The place is simple, with the lack of ambiance that reminded me of my youth. Salad was fresh, large, and included homemade croutons and an unexpected slice of garlic bread. The slice was huge, and had a nice... More

Blue Moon only knows how to burn the crust and bottom and make the shrimp on the pizza into shrimp jerky. Even after complaining that the last pizza we ordered from them was too done, they did it again. If they are trying to run off customers that have been going to them for over 10 years, they have succeeded.... More

Blue Moon Pizza ia a small little restaurant with maybe seating for two dozen people. The atmosphere is nonexistant but clean and comfortable as you sit and watch the California Street traffic go by. However, in my opinion, the pizza is the best in Reno. It is piping hot with a fresh crispy crust and the sauce, toppings, and cheese... More

Kind of a one man show and is a little slow to get your food, so don't show up in a hurry but it is well worth the wait! Try the Nate Watson (BBQ, pesto, chicken, olives) and not quite sure what else is on it but it's one of the better pizzas I've ever had. The garlic knots are... More
