Back in 1955, three Berkley-dwelling businessmen came together with an idea for a restaurant that specialized in something they knew everyone could enjoy. Pizza. And so, the first La Val's Pizza was born. First opening up on Euclid Avenue, the pizzeria grew over the years, changing hands and opening five locations throughout the area. Today, La Val's Pizza of Albany serves up some of the same classic pies from the hey-days of the UC-Berkley pizza joint hangout, using fresh ingredients in place of 57-year-old mushrooms. The Brazilian couple that owns and operates the location have also crafted a menu of Brazilian pizzas, which feature ingredients such as Brazilian cheese, smoked meat, and tan-tan drums.

The same year it launched its airy Telegraph Avenue outpost, Pasta Bene jumped onto the Bargain Bites 2010 list in the San Francisco Chronicle, which also praised its "friendly" service. Its family of owners, however, arrived with 20 years of experience behind the scenes of area Italian restaurants, meaning that its menu of stone-fired pizzas and hearty entrees leavened with California freshness came together naturally. In 13 pasta dishes, noodles entwine with slow-photosynthesized seasonal vegetables and rich tomato and cream sauces, while the dessert menu may suggest an easier choice with its house-made tiramisu, a customer favorite. Wooden rafters and iron chandeliers vault over the casual, sunlit dining room overlooking a street-side patio.

North Beach Pizza has been curing cravings for gourmet pizza, pastas, submarine sandwiches, and other hearty eats for more than 20 years. Thin and thick pizza crusts are tossed by hand and topped with whole milk mozzarella before baking evenly in industrial ovens, creating perfect, edible canvases ready to be bedecked in ingredients that include everything from fresh spinach and feta cheese, to clams and Linguiça––a form of Portuguese pork sausage. Delivery is free to eligible areas around each location, saving time that may be better spent setting the table or taking inventory of its legs.

The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.

Gioia Pizzeria

Will and Karen Gioia passion for cooking has taken them everywhere from the coveted kitchens of Rick Bayless and Chez Panisse to rural France. But the breadth of their travels led them to a singular focus for their own restaurant: tradition. At Gioia Pizzeria, they prep thin-crust pies with locally sourced and sustainably grown ingredients and strive to recapture the flavors of Will's childhood in Brooklyn, which was spent surrounded by Italian relatives and recipes. Today, Will and Karen evoke the same familial spirit at their two locations: a casual countertop spot in Berkeley, and a spacious San Francisco restaurant lit by vintage fixtures. The San Francisco Bay Guardian differentiates the couple's pizzas from greasier East-coast variants, deeming them "New York-spirited, with hearty crust and California-fresh toppings." Pecorino and house-made Sicilian sausage sprinkles the salsiccia pizza, whereas the vegetarian butternut squash pizza derives its complex flavors from organic squash, mozzarella, gorgonzola, and gremolata. The Julian—a pizza named after Karen and Will's son—changes its ingredients seasonally, having sported prosciutto, red onion, and garlic in the past. The team's emphasis on homemade fare doesn't end at pizzas, either. They fill their sweet, ricotta-stuffed cannolis onsite and tap their own lemon trees to fill glasses with fresh lemonade everyday.

Pizzas and microbrews. Arcade games and theater. While chowing down on a pepperoni slice, or twirling shrimp alfredo around a fork, guests at La Val's Pizza can sometimes take in a play, catch up with friends, or use a pool cue to spear a neighboring table's margarita pie.

La Val's dining area sprawls across several rooms. In one, Devo and Citizen Kane posters hang above red booths. In another space, sunlight streams in through large windows, illuminating ropes and half a bicycle hanging from the ceiling. Rustic, picnic-table-style seating lines a brick wall in yet another area. Across all the rooms, however, a cohesive palette of warm colors unites the decor and creates a friendly atmosphere.
