LOVELY, LOVELY, LOVELY place! Went here for dinner on a Saturday evening and it was simply perfect. Laid back feel, gorgeous views, fabulous service with excellent food.We had a zucchini crust pizza, a grilled zucchini with green dressing, and I had hibiscus tea made form the loose flowers. I recommend this place and look forward to returning many times!PS.: park in the garage. They validate your parking ticket at the restaurant.

Smelled the pizza walking by and had to grab a pie. Got the tomato pizza, was tempted to add salami but honestly even on its own it was very good. The crust was crisp and soft inside, just delicious. Everything tasted super fresh. I would definitely come back!

Beyond Pizza Perfection!Skal Pizza is a culinary delight that goes far beyond its reputation for amazing pizzas. Nestled in the picturesque setting of Newport Beach, this dining gem offers a diverse and delectable menu that truly impressed me.The wood-fired veggies at Skal Pizza, particularly the carrots and artichokes, were nothing short of sensational. The smoky char from the wood-fired oven elevated these humble vegetables to an entirely new level of flavor and tenderness. It was a delightful surprise and a testament to the chef's skill.Their Kale Caesar salad was a refreshing and healthy choice. The crispness of the kale paired perfectly with the creamy Caesar dressing, creating a harmonious blend of textures and flavors. It's a must-try for those looking for a lighter option. The Spinach and Pesto Pasta was a pasta lover's dream. The pasta was perfectly cooked, and the pesto sauce was bursting with fresh basil and garlic flavors. It was a comforting and satisfying dish that left me craving more.And let's not forget about dessert! The Caramelized Banana dessert was a sweet symphony of flavors and textures. The caramelized bananas were rich and indulgent, and the accompanying elements on the plate added a delightful complexity to each bite. I can't recommend it enough for those with a sweet tooth.Beyond the culinary delights, Skal Pizza offers a stunning waterfront view in Newport Beach. The serene waters and picturesque surroundings make it an ideal spot for a romantic dinner or a leisurely lunch. It's the perfect setting to enjoy a meal with loved ones.In conclusion, Skal Pizza is a culinary haven that extends far beyond its pizza offerings. From wood-fired veggies to pasta and desserts, each dish is crafted with precision and care. Combine this with the breathtaking Newport Beach view, and you have a dining experience that's truly memorable. Don't miss the opportunity to savor the diverse and delicious offerings at Skal Pizza.

This Swedish-Italian restaurant is tucked away by the harbor with a small indoor space and a bunch of outdoor tables. Their menu has so many unique pasta, pizza, sandwich, and salad dishes, along with a bar and juices as well. I tried the Saffron Miso pasta, which was absolutely delicious. It was cheesy but not too heavy, and the saffron flavor was wonderful. Their portions are a bit on the small size so it's best to get one entree per person, plus appetizers/salads. It's a casual order at the counter type of spot so it's first come first serve with no reservations. They are also mostly vegetarian with lots of vegan options too!

Stunning and delicious food with views of the water! Can't go wrong. Great for veggie lovers and non veggies lover alike - it's that good.

The ambience near the water is stunning.Saffron Miso Pasta:Flavor: 4.5/5The depth of flavor of this house made pasta was exquisite. Portion: 1/5The portion was about the size of an adult fist. It was rather disappointing to see how small this dish was and felt that it was overpriced for what we received. Artichoke and white sauce pizza:Flavor: 3.5/5It tasted fine, but nothing extraordinary. Portion: 3/5The pizza was about the size of a dinner plate. Seating arrangement: 2/5You order your food and then find a table. A number of people would save spots first before even lining up to order. After ordering, we looked around for tables. A few of them were waiting to be cleaned. This seating arrangement and service did not match the menu pricing.

You have to order at the counter and then find a seat, but the food is excellent! Had the most delicious beet pasta, artichoke pizza, and arugula salad with mushrooms and Parmesan! Fantastic! The cocktail was just okay. View was amazing! Will definitely go back! Not a lot of seating inside.

I loved the food. Honestly not a fan of seating arrangements they have. Seating to face the water is too limited so there are tables and chairs off to the side. I also don't like the idea of fast casual dining experience here in this area, i would prefer order while I'm seated.. in my opinion better as a lunch or brunch place too casual for d dinner unless you're in the area and just want to do something quick. The food was amazing so it's worth going here such a cute lunch spot. Many vegan options.

Great food and vibes right by the waterside at Lido Island. Came here with one of my girl friends on a Saturday right when it opened at 12. We were the first ones in the restaurant, and luckily we came right at opening! It got pretty busy fast. There's not too many inside/outdoor seating so def expect a wait. This was more of a self-serve restaurant - we ordered right at the front as we walked in and chose our own seating. Service was great and food came out fast.We ordered the butternut squash and sage pizza as well as the arugula and seasonal fruit salad. Both had amazing flavors - would definitely order again! I don't get vegetarian food often, but I could definitely go vegetarian if I could eat these dishes everyday. Everything on the menu looked good too, so would definitely come back to try more!
