It's been several years since I've requested this place.....it still puts out the wonderful product I remember. The only one pizza special offering per day, cheese and veggie toppings only and thin crust were still consistent as ever. I personally am not fond of the many cheese they use outside of the mozzarella I'm accustomed to??The ambiance and chill environment... More

While their hours says they close at 8PM, there are still over 20 groups in line at 8PM., on Valentine's Day! But since there's always a line, just come before you are too hungry to stand. There's only one (and always vegetarian) option, one salad option, and dessert. In other words, all you have to decide is how much pizza... More

Not sure why it's so popular. Me, it's ok. Kinda weird pizzas and people sitting on the median of the road. I prefer NY pizzas so maybe that's it

This has to be one of the most Overrated eateries in the bay area. Lived around the corner for years. I never understood why people waited in long cold lines for it. Don't get me wrong. It's not BAD pizza. It's just that it Always tastes the same! They put a different toppings on each day, with the same crust.... More

Block long line waiting for a very expensive pizza with regular taste and little toppings. I think most people come here to be seen and to show they can afford to money. There are other places that have equally good pizzas such as La Coco, Little Star Pizza, Pizza Moda.....

For a fun snapshot of Berkeley people, life and culture, this is it. Come ready to taste fabulous cheeses and bring home yummy breads, pastries and other goodies. Pizza always scrumptious! Love the cheese breads, brioche, scones.... Almost everything. And live music. And berkeley hippy AND hipster culture.

The Berkeley Bourgeoisie at their finest. Seriously, stand in line just to listen to the conversations. The pizza is fresh and always made with interesting ingredients. However, I find them a bit dry and sometimes skimpy on the toppings, as if the kitchen is running low on the ingredients. Prices are fair and there is limited seating for the mediocre... More

Cheeseboard is a gem, and also the cheese-lovers heaven. We first started going here two years ago after I lived in Berkeley for a summer and it is scrumptious. Pizza is usually something I can skip, because although I love it I would rather just have cheese, but this place changes daily, they use local organic produce which is wonderful,... More
