Reviews for Gioia Pizzeria

I'm sorry to report that I am revising my previous 5 star review down to one star. The pizza is still delicious, but for the second time the same distracted and rude employee completely forgot to put my pizza order in physically, after I'd paid for it. No apology, no offer to refund or give a free drink (she gave a free bottled soda to the man in front of me in line -- she routinely seems to engage only with people she knows), and I was sitting around for an extra ten full review

Great slices with a variety of options. Not the place to go if you want a cheese slice since they tend to have more complex options like Italian sausage, pickled onions and kale. Lots of walk up but the line goes quick and available via every app imaginable for those that do not like to wait. Has salads and cannoli, and the cannoli can be a little rich for some appetites.

There are many great pizza places in Berkeley, but this still may be my favourite. Their house made sausage is really good, and in the summer their Pomodoro pizza sources excellent local tomatoes. It can be a bit pricey, but it doesn't get that much better. Great for a slice, or order a full pizza ahead.
