We stopped pregame but I would recommend anytime for this hip pizza/bar that is near Petco field and downtown. Hopping happy hour

Fun place. Cool simple atmosphere. the pizzas are HUGE! The gluten free was really good. An easy walk from the hotels along the harbor.

Was recommended by a friend to check this place out. Definitely glad we did and my stomach approves this message. A little crowed with a wait during game day, though open seating/standing at the bar area. In the area, make this a stop to eat!

To the point, well made pizza in a fun atmosphere. Accompanied by a no fuss no muss attitude and solid beverage choices makes this a go to in the East Village.

Outstanding pizza, both red and white pies. Takeout or dine in. Beware that it's a nightclub in the evening with the music blasting, also has a couple pool tables.

We have been here 3 times, pizza is great every time. Service is good. Large open space can get loud. If you don't want to stay and eat, can get it "to go".

Good not great! Very very very loud! Have to yell to hear the waitress and have a conversation with whom your eating with may be difficult. But the pizza is not half bad! Thin crust and huge, prices are appropriate for the area, next to petco park.

Ordering customers out of a bar on a Friday evening at 5pm is a sure way of ruining your patron's experience, and that is what happened when I stopped in here on the same weekend that San Diego was hosting Comicon. Apparently, some TV show had reserved the premises for a private party. Well, good for them. If they have... More

We don't usually have pizza when we go out but generally opt for healthier choices. This was a pizza shop that we felt was on the tastier and healthier side. I loved it and felt no guilt about eating their wonderful pie....and good beer.

I don't know what the big hype is about. The restaurant didn't open on time. I almost wonder if they purposely want to make it look like people are waiting to get inside. I've had better pizza for the price. The taste was good, but the pizza got soggy. Customer service was average.
