My all time favorite pizza was in a tiny pizzeria in Rome, second best in the Nice airport, and this is a close third! Fabulous fluffy edges, thin crisp crust and savory sauce. Ask for a little cup of extra sauce to dip the crust!...More

Pretty good slice joint. $2.50/cheese and $3.00 for one topping. Deal for 2 slices and a drink for $6.00. Had a slice after visiting Lost Abbey next door, and it hit the spot.

This is my fave pizza in Cardiff, and now it is next door to the Lost Abbey Beer tasting room. By pizza, take it next door to eat with your beer. Perfect. Artichoke special is my favorite. Calzone is also awesome.

I literally have a friend that will drive from Vista for this pizza. Thin slices and delicious toppings served to order. Take a slice to the Abby next door and grab a nice refreshing beer at the tasting room.

Custom made East Coast Pizza - like one really does get on the East Coast - fresh ingredients, no problems with special orders, never been disappointed. Go there at least once every 5-8 weeks

I have been to East Coast Pizza a few times. I suggest sticking with the " by the slice" deals they have. We ordered a whole pie, mushroom and sausage. The crust was not cooked properly-soft and lacked flavor.

Love that you can walk in, select from what they have available (may options) and then they warm it up so the crust is nice and crunchy. It's a nice size and you can get 2 slices and a drink for $6. My boys love...More

Really can't beat their lunch deal. 2 Slices and a soda for $6. Might be good for dinner too. Just don't know if they offer it at that time. The pizza is really good too. It's thin crust, which I normally don't like, but it's...More

I'm a Jersey Girl who loves a good pizza. East Coast does not disappoint. And their 2 slice/drink special can't be beat.
