Good, but not exceptional. I had the fig and pig pizza and a side Caesar salad. My son had the BBQ pizza and the Caprese salad. My Caesar salad was under-dressed; a bit more dressing would have been helpful. My pizza was overly cheesy for my taste and didn't have the punches of flavor that I was hoping for. Daniel's red tomato was ripe and very tasty. The yellow tomato was under-ripe and woody.

This pizza was awesome. We got the demon and the bee sting and both were excellent. My buddy got the gluten free crust and it was pretty solid too!It seems a little pricey but the pizzas are pretty big for one person. Definitely worth it.

I’d say 2 1-2 stars. Taste was decent. Got a Cesar salad but with no anchovies (Which they promoted and I asked for) Chicken tasted like a wet boiled chicken like I make for my dog when she is sick. I enjoyed my pepperoni pizza. The Alfredo one I got as well was fine; just no flavor… might have been the chicken though. Spent $10 in extra sauce to make up for the lack of. Good but kind of disappointed.

We were here twice and it was fantastic both times. Antipasto salad, lasagna rollatini, and their supreme pizza. Highly recommend!


Wow!!!! What a TREAT Crave was!!!! We were immediately sat and enjoyed a quick drink. My Sister-in-Law enjoyed a Lemon Cake martini, another enjoyed a peach Bellini!!!! I had a house Chardonnay- really good!!!! My husband and I shared a Power Mix salad and the lobster ravioli!!!! OH MY!!!!! Both quite enough for a meal!!!! The 2 other couples each ordered the lobster ravioli and a pizza!!! One had the GF crust and the other had regular dough. It was great!!!! So so delicious and Kellie our server was THE BEST!!!!!


This has become one of the best restaurants in Buena Vista. Most restaurants in BV are mediocre but Crave is by far the best one around. Staff is friendly and the food is fantastic!

Surprisingly good food!! The NM seasonal pizza was amazing! The antipasto salad was fantastic and the potato and parm bisque was flavorful. The interior decor was clean and modern. The music volume could've been lower, yet happy hour prices made up the difference. All-in-all, we had an awesome meal!

Wow! Amazing. Pizzas that will knock your socks off! Salads that will delight. Open atmosphere that invites with a modern feel. Casual dining with a upscale feel.

Okay, this place was awesome! Our family likes to try local restuarants in the places we visit and decided on this one after a long day of activity. The hostess was kind and attentive as was our waitress. The food was great! Don't pass on the cheesy bread appetizer, because it is far from average. We tried three kinds of pizza and loved all of them. We will be back!


Came for dinner whole on BV. Staff friendly, food amazing, wine pretty darn good. Enjoyed caprese app then a Caesar worth teak anchovies!! The lasagna pin wheel was amazing.


This was our 4th visit to Crave and we have always sat at the bar. We continue to hope that the service has improved, unfortunately that has not been the case. We can count on when the woman bartender is working that we will be ignored for the first 10-15 minutes. The male bar tender is quick to help but then ignores you for the rest of your visit as he tends to his phone. We are locals and typically dine mid afternoon when it is not busy so they are not overwhelmed with many custmers. There is no enthusiasm shown by anyone working there and it seems to be a culture that their upscale pizza should stand on its own..but it does not..Take the time and drive yourself to Salida and eat at Moonlight or Amicas, you will be glad you did.


A gem of a spot. Great pizza, excellent service, good music, nice decor. The place is clean and the staff was friendly and attentive. I sat at the bar, bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. Seemed like a lot of locals hanging out at the bar watching football. The pizza and service we top notch. Highly recommend.

Crave!!! Wow!!! We ordered online for pickup and it was super delicious. Highly recommend the Lobster stuffed ravioli, antipasto, the best meatball grinder sandwich! That meatball grinder was very delicious and the portions were very generous! The inside, although we didn't dine in, is very clean and esthetically pleasing with a modern industrial vibe. The staff was friendly and we were greeted right when we entered the establishment. Highly recommend Crave when you are in the Buena Vista area.


We stopped in for lunch today. There was just one other person sitting up to the bar so decided to have lunch there. The gal running the bar took her time coming over as she stood washing glasses a little down from where we were sitting. She finally came over with menus and as my husband was trying to decide what beer he wanted she just walked away to talk with the man sitting down from us. I needed to ask a question about an item on the menu and attempted to signal her with my hand. She looked over at me.. pointed her finger at me and said " you can just wait a minute". She was clearly interested in the man sitting down from us. I found this to be extremely rude. She continued to chat with him for some time before finally coming over and asked " what do you want?" This girl should not be bartending or working with customers in food service. We may try coming in again when she is no longer employed at your establishment.

Great Italian restaurant on Main street serving pasta, pizza, sandwiches in an open kitchen concept space.I had a fantastic meatball sub and cup of minestrone; and my dining partner had the traditional NY style lasagna. He said it was the best he's ever had and I wouldn't argue that. It was layered with ricotta and mozzarella and baked perfect. My sub was huge so I had dinner and lunch.
