This is a very popular local place known for its homemade fabulous pizza. They offer a couple of choices each day in a small space that is inviting and lively with locals and often live music. Check the schedule because they close from 3 to 4:30 - between lunch and dinner. Great for getting slice of pizza on the go... More

Cheeseboard Pizza was our go-to Friday night reward. We got a half-baked pie and put it on the grill for a few minutes for a little char. I did have to suspend my idea of pizza, because this is a slightly different interpretation. But it's good because of the integrity of the ingredients and wonderful cheeses that they carry in...

This place draws crowds all day long. Best known for the "take it or leave it" single style pizza of the day (which looks extremely tasty), the soft serve ice cream is a hidden delight. Give it a try!

We went for dinner with some friends of the area, there was a big line waiting. The place was crowded! Full of all types of people, students, families and couples. It was funny to find that they only sell one type of pizza per day, so if you go to eat there be ready to just one choice. Even though... More

The pizza here is the best I've ever tasted, fresh and full of flavour. If you are in the area you must visit. We had takeaway for a movie night but Ive heard that eating in is just as good.

Cheeseboard Pizza is an institution in the Gourmet Ghetto, with lines out the door at lunchtime. The pizza is freshly made on premises with great toppings and cheese. I, however, am unusual in that I don't like a lot of garlic on my pizza and Cheeseboard Pizza bathes its pizza in garlic. You can smell it wafting out the door... More

Amazingly delicious pizza!! Love the concept of only having one pizza for the day. Makes ordering a whole lot easier and faster. Fresh salads as well. Well worth the wait!

I am a pizza snob, since I am a native New Yorker. No other pizza is better than pizza from NY (I make grandstanding opinions like this too, as a New Yorker). I digress. So, EVERYBODY I spoke to when I was telling them I was going to Berkeley mentioned Cheeseboard. I hesitated about going because I love pizza and... More
