It's my 2nd day in SB and it's my 2nd trip to Pizza Guru. The Bodhi's BBQ is fantastic! I don't think you could order a bad pizza here. Friendly service and reasonable prices for a unique pizza!

A local pizzeria with a great selection of vegan options (including vegan cheese and various "meats"). Was very casual -perhaps a little messy - but staff were very friendly. Pizzas were delicious.

Waited an hour and 45mins for pizza and salads delivery on a Wednesday during the off season. Not sure how they manage delivery during busy season on a weekend. Bright side was the pizza was pretty good. Skip the salads, had 2 different both not so memorable (could've been the bad taste left from the ridiculous long wait) also called... More

We dove into our pizzas so quickly, I didn't have time to take a photo. They smelled so good! We each had a personal size pizza ($7 plus .75 per topping) The ingredients are really better quality than you get at other places. All the veggies are locally grown. The meats are grass-fed and organic. I love that! They also... More

Thought we would venture away from hotel and needed a break from $25 per person meals. Ordered two pizzas, pasta, and salad. Salad was pretty good and feels good to support local growers. Pasta didn't arrive until the end of the meal although it was the only thing with flavor. Two pizzas- despite a lot of things on there, were... More

Everything is made fresh, organic and locally grown. Best pizza ever from the topics to the crust. Love their salad dressings. Kid friendly. Inside and outside seating. They deliver to certain areas.

We enjoyed the salad but got the Nirvana (vege pizza) and added Pepperoni. I had high expectations because their menu looks great but I was a little disappointed in the pizza. It had a lot of great toppings but just wasn't too flavorful. They should double the sauce and cheese and it could have been amazing. Perhaps it was because... More

Yes, the pizza from Pizza Guru tastes better than pizza from Rusty's. It's less greasy and it is apparently made of local & organic ingredients. But, there is a price to pay -- both in actual dollars and in the we-don't-care-about-you attitude of the cashier staff. I phoned in my order for pick-up a couple times in the past month.... More

Got picky people to purchase pizza for? There are more choices here than you can shake a stick at. This is not your grandfather's pizza joint. Trick out your pizza to maximize what is healthy about pizza. It's still delish! Or go decadent if you are young enough not to wake up with puffy eyes they next day. You can... More

Really good crust and a lot of quality topping choices. I went with a chicken, bacon, and roasted red pepper pie with garlic white sauce. It's a solid choice for pizza but won't blow your mind. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars, closer to really good. It's the kind of place I'd order take out from for a football game... More
