Pizza is good, plus nice to have it made by a Champion – Good selection, nice and quite atmosphere, reasonable price. Recommend.
pie and burgers – pie and mushroom burger yum pretty good for fast food
Great food! Just relax and expect a wait. – Top notch! Five stars for the food; Two for the decor. If you expect bland, run-of-the-mill fast-food style pizza this is not the right place to visit. If you arrive with a relaxed frame of mind and anticipate a 60 minute wait then all will be fine. Even on the busiest nights we have been served in 40 - 50 minutes. Maybe once in ten years it took 90 minutes and they brought out free bread sticks to help out. I have lived within walking distance of Pyzano's since 1997 and have always received good service be it from the younger employees or the owners. The Pizza crust is fantastic, the sause is authentic and the toppings are fresh! Call ahead to order to eat in and you'll save most of the waiting: Duh! It isn't that complicated to plan ahead. One review said something about being hidden "up on the hill".....not even close. It is easy to find within 100 feet of Petco which is visible from Interstate 580. Well worth a try and you will be hooked on this keeper. $$ , Noisy at times.
Good Pizza, but not worth the wait. – Service is terrible. We waited almost 2 hours before getting served. Several tables near ours did not fare any better. Do not bring children! This is an order, pay, and then seat yourself type of place. The cashier does not tell you how long a wait it is going to be and the waiters who brings out the pizza has no idea when yours will be coming. No matter how good the pizza is (wasn't too bad) it will not be worth the aggravation. I suspect they cater to the take-out business first, which is quite substantial. Very poor management. Wonder how a place like that gets repeat business!
Wow! This place is great! – We discovered this place from the Food Network. Tony one of the owners was in a Food Network challenge showcasing his pizza tossing/acrobat skills. We went there to try the pizza and wow-it was awesome! Tony was there too and truly an amazing guy! He's friendly to all the kids hoping to catch a glimpse of him doing some cool pizza trick. We ordered a couple pizzas and they were all great. His dough is absolutely perfect and everything is fresh and tastes great. Although it's hidden up on the hill in Castro Valley it's totally worth a drive from where ever you live. Tony is famous and so is his pizzas, it's definately a spot you can't miss if you live in the Bay Area. And again, WOW! The pizza is awesome!
Great pizza, great place! – We LOVE Pyzano's! We took New Yorkers to try the New York style pizza and they thought it was absolutely great. The Cal Italia is a totally one of a kind gourmet experience. A little salty and a little sweet and very rich, don't make it your 'main course' though! The Genoa is also excellent - pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes - YUM!
The prices are the same as most pizza places (pizza in general tends to be a bit overpriced I think), but go online and check out their coupons! Two for Tuesdays get you a second pie of equal or lesser value and on Wednesdays kids get their own individual pizza and free drinks (no coupon necessary)! Much better than other places' save $2 or get free breadsticks deals.
Yes, the people working there tend to be young, but in a high volume pizzeria in an area where most of the residents are working professionals, who do you expect to see??? The kids work hard and I've never gotten bad service from them. In fact, last night (a Wednesday, kids eat free night), our cashier gave us some coupons to use ON TOP of the kids eat free deal. Three huge pizzas with the works and four drinks came to $65, plus we got five mini pizzas for the kids and their drinks. Try feeding 10 people for that anywhere else! Plus we had the equivalent of a whole pizza to take home.
Great PIZZA! Great ATMOSPHERE! Great STAFF! – I popped in on a Wednesday night in February & caught the Kid's night when Pyzano's Pizzeria staff teach Bay area kids how to toss pizza dough. Hilarious FUN! The big screen was tuned into NCAA basketball, and so I stayed for a medium Godfather pizza (with two types of sausage) and finished off the whole thing! Definitely a great place to pick up pizza for March Madness. I will be back ASAP!
Editorial Review – As-see-on-TV pies from a world-renowned pizza tossing champ come in regular and New York-style varieties. Also hearty strombolis and calzones.
Good Times!! – I have been going to Pyzano's for years, and it is a great place to take family and friends. First the food is great. You have so many choices including several different styles of pizza. My favorite would be the Stromboli pizza, but you can't go wrong with any of the New York styles or California styles. The atmosphere is fun, and the kids get a kick out of seeing the cooks toss the dough in front of thier customers. Also they have a great selection of beers on tap. Pyzano's really has something for everyone.
Best Pizza Ever!!! – Pyzano's is awesome!! I had seen the world champion pizza thrower on TV over the weekend, and realized that his restaurant was nearby. I had never been there, so I decided to give it a try. It was great. We went in with a big group, and ordered two pizzas. They had so many to choose from and several different styles. First, I'm from New York, and Pyzano's New York style is the closest to what I grew up with I have had in California. We also had the Cal Italia pizza, and it was on of the best pizzas I have ever had. I can see why it won a gold medal on the Food Network. Any one who hasen't had Pyzano's, should go soon.
