Have had lots of great pizzas here in the past. Tonight we ordered through Doordash 3 pizzas and Gioia only sent one. The delivery guy said the cashier insisted it was only one pizza but we were charged for 3! Phone is off the hook so haven't been able to get this corrected. Really frustrating. Would have given 5 stars based on past experience.

I tried the Gioia pizza for the first time today. I loved the one with the mushroom the most. I’ll definitely go back to try the other ones as well. The bread was thin and crispy. The Spinach pizza was a little salty for me.

The mushroom pizza is super good. They also do pizza by the slice too if you're lookin for a quick bite.

I really want to love this new place I found while on my neighborhood walks recently during Covid. I've tried their takeout slices a few times now in the last few weeks (I usually buy about 3-4 slices of different flavors at once to share and try what they've got.) Consistently the flavors have been good if not amazing, but the crust is so thin and undercooked on almost all of the 9-10 slices I've bought so far that it has not been a good experience. It's like there is no crust whatsoever on the bottom half of the slice. It all falls off in a gooey mess every time, saturates the paper plates they come in with grease and is ultimately unappetizing. I wonder if I order a whole pie to go or for delivery if it would be better done(?), but I wanted to sample first before investing in a whole pricey pie. I may try one more time before abandoning hope just because they have great combos and pretty good flavors in a convenient locale and I love the walkup takeout option. Their takeout salad was delicious. Hopefully they can be more mindful about making sure the crust isn't so soggy in the future and I'll be a regular.

Probably the best mushroom pizza to date. Price was on point and service was great. But ultimately, the pizza was to die for. Great crust, soft and chewy and the rest of the pizza, when folded in half just melts in your mouth (in a good way). This doesn't need any larger of a review; the taste says its all! Highly recommend A+. Get the mushroom pizza!

I'm a New Yorker and pretty much hate all CA pizza except this place. The pizza is perfectly flavored, and the crust is great. My favorite is the funghi. I eat here regularly, and recommend you do too.

Gioia makes the tastiest pizza. The crust is awesome and toppings are generous. My favourite is the formaggio and I've never been disappointed. Staff is friendly and efficient. Look forward to grabbing another pie soon!

Expectations almost met. I've been to this place before but it was pre-Covid. Today I ordered around 4 o'clock from DoorDash. I was really surprised when the meatballs arrived because the container was ice cold. I had to heat up the meatballs at my house and once they were reheated they weren't anything to write home about. The texture was kind of mushy and there wasn't much seasoning there. Now onto the pizza. The crust was amazing. Once you reheat their pizza in your oven you're good to go. I personally think their pizza is better fresh right there rather than having it delivered.

Great pizza, the family always enjoys the funghi pizza and the service. Staff is always very responsive. Please tip them well.
