The pizza is better or worse depending on the day, but the green sauce is always so good
Sliver serves up one type of vegetarian pizza every day of the week. And the yummiest cilantro sauce. Today's happened to feature peach. Fruit on pizza? YES. Please.
Really quick service.We had salad and slices of pizza. Pizza was awesome, vegetarian, with corn toppings was actually surprisingly good.Note: review done during pandemic. Seeing people was a luxury until few months ago.
Quick service, decent portions, good prices — what more can you want from a pizza place? The thin crust + adequate amount of toppings didn't make us feel too heavy after polishing off the half pizza, and the salad added a nice kick of freshness. Parts of the dough seemed cooked unevenly though, hence the 4 stars.Side note: when you see the salad with blueberries, raspberries, and goat cheese on the menu, don't hesitate — just get it. The sweetness of the fruits complements goat cheese so nicely! It was a great addition to our pizza.
I ate at this location (outside) - do not eat outside here. It is not safe. I was called racials slurs and mentally unstable people kept coming up to us, yelling. One of them went as far as reaching their arm over the railing behind the person I was with and made a shape of a gun to their head and yelled "yellow" while he stared at me. At that point, we felt so harassed we just stood up mid bite and left. I was so scared and thought ignoring them would get them to leave us alone but this person kept coming closer, continued yelling at us, staring and circling our area with the angriest look in his eyes until we left. Sliver staff didn't come outside to tend the outdoor area and none of the other patrons went in to notify staff. With that said, our safety was our only concern at this point, we had no choice but to get up and leave.
Really fast service and delicious pizza. Their corn, chile pizza was great and an excellent combination of flavors. Green sauce is quite addictive.
Definitely has changed since it has become franchises :( The pizza is really dough-y and tough to chew. The toppings are still unique and great but it feels like a lot of the texture and flavor is lacking compared to 5-6 years ago. The star of the show is the green sauce though I can have that on everything!!!
Late night downtown pizza run. Cremini mushrooms on pizza are bomb. Didn't get his name, but shoutout to the guy working last shift on Thursday. Great dude.
PIZZA. VEGETARIAN. FRESH. CRISPY CRUST. MIND BLOWING SAUCE. HEAVEN!!! Don't even think about it and go here, you'll never regret it.
We tried pizza from here on two different locations. The only good thing about this pizza is the flavor profile & the creativity, however the texture is very hard. I'm not sure why the dough is so tough, the pizza is reminiscent of cardboard.
I love this place, very affordable and great pizza. It's also in the middle of downtown, and sometimes you'll catch live music!
I've never had a bad slice from Sliver.
" I'd rather feel the cold of a grave, than the heat of shame."Ok,this has been bugging me, since it happened. I'm sure I'll lose friends over it. When zcovid was just starting, Berkeley was a ghost town. Sliver was open still tho. I am a outside living, morally so so guy. A fella I know. Approached me about a plan to walk into Sliver. And take their easily had tip jar. I 100 pct. saw it was inevitable, and I felt the unjustness of that action. How it would hurt more than help. Now keep in mind I HATE Sliver pizza, often referring to it as the place pizza goes to to puke. The mangmnt. and staff , to the best of my knowledge have never even so much as acknowledge they see me. And this guy has shared food,blankets, coffee, time..etc etc.. and never hurt me. I didn't know any other way to effectively prevent his risking getting bad karma( jail, shot,beat down..Im no hippy) and their having another reason to rally against us, losing hard earned money,and so on. I talked to a cop I know, informed her of the intentions and asked her to tell management to move the target. She went inside came out and leftI got to thinking " what if she's using this as a trap, and is waiting for it to go down, everyone in on the plan, make an easy arrest". Thats BPD for sure. So I walked in to see if my warning was getting the tip jar moved.I walked head high to the counter to have a guy say " looking to rob me, you Beep beeping beeper" or like such. I was indignant and said I was the I one who told the cop, to help him who wouldn't spit on me if I was dieing of thirst, and deprive a guy who had given me his last water, or a blanket in the cold, so no thanks desired, but at least address me as a man. Nothing.He just went on wiping the counter and dismissed me. So I left head high, but feeling the suspicious glares of the few fellow humans in there, and tears of hate, self pity,hopelessness, and frustration welling in my eyes. Thats it. No further engagement. If you read all this,wow, you must be bored,but thanks. I still think the Sliver pizza sucks, the people are cold to me, but they deserve that pursuit, that struggle to gain a shred of Happiness. I do too, n so do you. Struggle on.Be Good, or Be Good at "it". Love, Reptile
