Seriously people, I fly from Txas for this cullinary masterpiece. The duck tacos are one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. They are literally the best thing on their menu.

Sammy's was shutdown for a long time but has reopenned. There is a nice fire pit out front so you can sit there if you like. They serve wood fired pizza, pasta etc. The food is pretty good. It is quite popular so make sure you have a reservations.

With so many restaurants to chose from in La Jolla this is a great choice. The wait staff is very helpful and nice. The food is wonderful, if your not to hungry the lobster bisque is a great choice. The desert is wonderful. The messy sundae is great for a group, but you probably don't want to eat it on... More

We were seated quickly. Attentive server's provided the requested drinks. Just at the right time, it seemed, we made our choice's from a varied menu from pizza to pasta. We chose the chopped chicken salad and the Angel hair pasta with shrimp, artichoke and bacon. Each was enough for two with take home. Each was well prepared and delicious. This... More

Five of us went to dinner here to celebrate a birthday. Best choice that we could have made. The food was excellent. Well prepared and tasty. The tomato soup was very good but recommend that you order it with 'light oil' otherwise, it is a bit heavy. Most of us had salads but one in our party had the Salmon... More

Stopped by for pizza. Got a Hawaiian, ham and pineapple, and a New York, various meats and spicer. Loved rage rim crust, very tasty but the main body crust very thin and soggy with oil. No chunks of pineapple on pizza but flavor was there. Two pizzas (12 inch each) were enough for 3 adults. Great friendly service, nice clean... More

Such a wonderful, friendly staff to serve always delicious food. The sun-dried tomato pizza and chopped chicken salad are my favorites. They have also added some mini-donuts to the menu and they are a perfect light dessert to share.

There are honestly so so many good places to eat in La Jolla now that I would probably choose somewhere else. I usually get the shrimp salad however, it's just shrimp and romaine and the other salads around the area offer so much more. They do have pizzas as well and they are pretty good.

We are pizza lovers, and know a good pizza when we are presented with one. We had 3 different kinds here, and none of them came close to being good. Yet the place was mobbed. What goes???
