I am giving this pizza 5 stars because it was the closest to NY style I have found. The food is yummy, the prices are great and and the staff is friendly.

This restaurant has dine in and take out pizza. I frequently get their 14" pepperoni (take out only) for $5 which is a great deal. They make very good NY style thin crust pizza and it's a very good deal. They have lots of specials on their website including giant 28" pizzas for parties and families. I recommend this place.

The pizza was filled with good ingredients but was not the super thin style I truly enjoy. Was a little limpy and didn't have a firm crisp crunch. The calzone was good but not amazing. Pizza was done on time and was warm to eat. Not bad just not the best.

The pizzas are big and authentic. Ingredients are fresh and great tasting. Only downfall is the price. Each time I go I order the same thing. Each time the price is different. I laugh about it now because it's funny. The meatball pizza is really good. Give them a try!

Pizza Amore is not much to look at but the pizza was very good. The plastic booth seats were uncomfortable and the pizza is served with thin papers plates and plastic utensils. The prices were reasonable (how about a 14" pepperoni pizza for $5.00?) with plenty of coupons available on their website. We had a large pizza with the works... More

Transplants from the East Coast (think NY/NJ), Italian heritage and we know pizza and this is the best tasting pizza in North San Diego County and possibly all of San Diego. And they have the best value. As of early August, you can get two Large 16" Pizzas (more than 75% larger than the 12" some offer) with one topping... More
