We had only been to the Pleasure Pizza in Capitola, but never downtown. PP is known for their pizza, which is the best around, but at this PP, we had their sandwiches and they were fantastic!

Pizza was tasty but not warm enough. Floors were not clean, no one was cleaning tables, music was uncomfortable, and service was sub-par -- employees were in their own conversation most of time and talking across restaurant.

Way over priced for very bland pizza. took an hour to make while I sat there, and it wasn't even busy

The WORST pizza ever! First the girl there didn't know if they had white sauce, found out they did then she said they couldn't make a half red half white pizza because they put the sauce on in a circular motion. We ordered our pizza and were told 30 mins even though they were not very busy on a Sunday night. We went to walk around town came back after 30 minutes, we sat down then I got up to check on our pizza, they tell us 3 more minutes, 10 minutes later they bring us a burnt pizza the crust was all black, toppings were minimal. I would never eat there again.

Been there three times and NOT ONCE did they have shrimp for the abyss pizza. Why have it on the menu if you can't make it?

Be prepared for expensive pizza. BUT ... with a groupon it's not so bad a price. Still eating my pizza 4 days later. Filling and delicious.
